I guess the thing that set it off was a guy who made some comments about booktube women who wear makeup and have pro lighting and nice backdrops (or something like that), and all make the same videos about the same small number of books, and how he couldn't picture them being hunkered down and completely immersed in reading.

So, bookish women have to be... poor? Slovenly? Too dumb to figure out proper lighting? I don't understand what his point is supposed to be lol.

I mean, the whole "fake nerd girl" meme was about crap like not having every little scintilla of niche knowledge. But I don't even get how that's supposed to be connected to the idea that girls who read can't video good lol.

Small reference pools are unfortunate. But that's hardly limited to the booktube.

I like her channel as well... I hope she makes some more vids at some point.

Me too. Did her webcomic ever go live, do you know?

The numbers don't lie, and they spell THIS IS AWESOME!

Only one person who is prayerfully connected to God is needed, and we will have peace everywhere -- in the family, at work, in the government, and everywhere.
