Ursula Le Guin is legendary 22 Years Of Harry Potter 1997 – 2019 Signature shirt, I absolutely love her. For my two cents, as a guy, I used to never be able to identify myself with a female protagonist. Why? Well, I never cared to look into it. I just sort of didn’t feel like reading books I saw what happened to be written by a woman, or follow female protagonists. Besides, look over here at all these other books, by male authors, with male protagonists!

It wasn’t until I took stock of what I had read and realized I had not read a single female-authored book of my own volition (outside of class) since my days of reading Emily Rodda! I thought about why and discovered this subtle, unrecognized distaste for the idea of a woman’s 22 Years Of Harry Potter 1997 – 2019 Signature shirt. I would never go out and say, or even think, “I won’t read this because a woman wrote it.” But I unconsciously imagined a book as less serious, more YA-ish, more distastefully romantic, when I saw a female name. It’s one of the subtle ways women are excluded from publishing – their work can be seen as less serious, *just because*.

Just like things that are popular with girls are derided, like Twilight, while stories just as frivolous, but about war instead of romance, which are popular with 22 Years Of Harry Potter 1997 – 2019 Signature shirt, are not so derided. Double standards. Once I noticed this, I started consciously trying to read more female authors. Some haven’t been my thing. Some I have liked but also found challenging (thanks, Virginia Woolf). And then, I also discovered Ursula Le Guin, who is simply my favourite writer ever, someone whose wisdom and wit speaks to me on an entirely different level.
