Realization From A Woman About How Men Can't Actually Write From A Woman's Perspective

by Shasta

As a writer myself, and beings many of my writer friends have expressed this more times than I could ever begin to count.

Men cannot write from a woman's perspective.

It always ends up chopped and sexist.

Super sad story but it's the truth.

One day a Tumblr user by the name of 'annerocious', who articulated a post with the title being, "Dear Men Writers", where she did more than lay out a few inaccuracies, she straight up called them out, and by all means.

I'm elated that she did! Someone had to say it!

No fear here ladies and gents!

Fortunately for me I don't read a lot of books written by men. But I imagine the way they admire their women characters in the mirror is equally as odd.
