Pillows & Blankets

I'm a social geography student from Paris, and a contributor for a new blog dedicated to pop culture & intersectional feminism called Critical Writ. I'm particularly interested in lesbian fiction of every genre.


I have a preference for romance & Fantasy/sci-fi, and will pay a lot of attention to gender roles, healthy/unhealthy relationships and consent in stories I read.

Fledgling - Octavia E. Butler Nope, I cannot get my mind off the fact that this book, while well written, features a 8 years old child who's actually 53 and who goes around mind controlling random adult people into having sex with her and loving her. The creep factor is just *waves confusedly* off the charts.

Some people argue that this is a commentary on sexual freedom, but really. She's addicting people to her. She's fucking with their minds so that they love her. She looks 8 years old, but really, she's mature and 53 years old? That's how pedophiles justify themselves.
