Attention New York Times: The A still stands for Adult.
Nova linked to this really dumb editorial and my initial reaction was anger, because what a fucking twat.
But now I’m realizing that in addition to being wrong because he’s a twat, and in addition to being wrong because he is just wrong, Joel Stein is wrong because his logic is severely flawed.
We’re all children before we’re adults. We all start reading as children. If anything, shouldn’t we have to work our way through the previous 3,000 years of fiction written for children before we are allowed to move on to adult fiction?
In your face, twat.
