1. Here's the thing:

    • 1: Readers need to be more accepting of each other.
    • 2: Readers need to feel free to read whatever they want.
    • 3: Readers should stop judging others for what they read.
    • 4: This means letting anyone read young adult novels.
    • 5: This means letting anyone read middle grade novels.
    • 6: This means letting anyone read general fiction novels.
    • 7: This means letting anyone read new adult, history, science, religious texts, children's storybooks, humour, plays, manga, graphic novels, etc; whatever the hell they want to read.
    • 8: We need to stop this reader prejudice that some in the book community are okay with. This is never justifiable.
    • 9: We need to teach young readers to not fear general fiction and "literary novels", whatever the hell that means.
    • 10: We need to help adults see that, sometimes, teenagers in young adult fiction go through the same crap a middle-aged character goes through in general fiction--emotionally and sometimes physically.
    • 11: It is not okay to generalize a genre, age group, or reading format.
    • 12: It is not okay to look down your nose at someone because they read something different.
    • 13: And when you're thinking, "Ugh, people are reading this crap just because of the movie coming out." Don't think about it as people flocking to something popular, think about how PEOPLE ARE READING.
    • 14: So, here's the thing: Reading is an escape for everyone.
    • 15: It offers hope when we've lost it.
    • 16: It offers company when we have none.
    • 17: It offers solace when we need to just be alone and deal with life.
    • 18: It offers love when you feel like your heart is breaking.
    • 19: And, it offers friends in the form of a book community.
    • 20: So, don't just be a reader.
    • 21: Be a conscious reader who lets other readers be.
    • 22: Not everyone reads to "increase their intelligence, and grow mentally, or emotionally."
    • 23: Some people read because words are powerful and because they offer so much more than how to outdo one another with impressive "Read" lists.
    • 24: Just read and be.
    • 25: You do your thing, and other readers will do theirs.

  13. Though Mean Girls was rated PG-13 for “sexual content, language, and some teen partying,” that was a rating Paramount had to fight for, says Waters. “We had lots of battles with the ratings board on the movie. There was the line, ‘Amber D’Lessio gave a blow job to a hot dog,’ which eventually became ‘Amber D’Lessio made out with a hot dog.’ Which is somehow weirder! That’s the thing we found: When you’re trying to make a joke obey the rules and not use any bad words, it can actually become seamier, even.” Still, there were some things that Waters simply refused to change. “The line in the sand that I drew was the joke about the wide-set vagina. The ratings board said, ‘We can’t give you a PG-13 unless you cut that line.’ We ended up playing the card that the ratings board was sexist, because Anchorman had just come out, and Ron Burgundy had an erection in one scene, and that was PG-13. We told them, ‘You’re only saying this because it’s a girl, and she’s talking about a part of her anatomy. There’s no sexual context whatsoever, and to say this is restrictive to an audience of girls is demeaning to all women.’ And they eventually had to back down.”
