    The [eight] liberal arts taught as basic studies in medieval universities are personified here as elegant young women dressed at the height of fashion.

    Grammar, Rhetoric, Logic, Music, Geometry, Arithmetic, and Astronomy all line up headed by Philosophy. They hold in their hands clues as to which studies they represent.

    AAAGH LOVE IT! <3

    Now, let medieval wimmens in the university to learn that stuff, not just personify them, and I’d propose to it.

    I don’t know.

    The problem that needs to be fixed is not kick all the girls out of YA, it’s teach boys that stories featuring female protagonists or written by female authors also apply to them. Boys fall in love. Boys want to be important. Boys have hopes and fears and dreams and ambitions. What boys also have is a sexist society in which they are belittled for “liking girl stuff.” Male is neutral, female is specific.

    I heard someone mention that Sarah Rees Brennan’s THE DEMON’S LEXICON would be great for boys, but they’d never read it with that cover. Friends, then the problem is NOT with the book. It’s with the society that’s raising that boy. It’s with the community who inculcated that boy with the idea that he can’t read a book with an attractive guy on the cover.

    Here’s how we solve the OMG SO MANY GIRLS IN YA problem: quit treating women like secondary appendages. Quit treating women’s art like it’s a niche, novelty creation only for girls. Quit teaching boys to fear the feminine, quit insisting that it’s a hardship for men to have to relate to anything that doesn’t specifically cater to them.

    Because if I can watch Raiders of the Lost Ark and want to grow up to be an archaeologist, there’s no reason at all that a boy shouldn’t be able to read THE DEMON’S LEXICON with its cover on. My friends, sexism doesn’t just hurt women, and our young men’s abysmal rate of attraction to literacy is the proof of it.

    If you want to fix the male literary crisis, here’s your solution:

    Become a feminist.

    Understanding Poetry

    Happy National Poetry Month! This comic was inspired by one of my favorite poems, "The New Poetry Handbook" by Mark Strand. This month on Incidental Comics, I’ll be exploring the world of poetry. A place, as Marianne Moore famously said, of  ”imaginary gardens with real toads in them.”

    I really need to memorize some of my favorite poems. That “imaginary gardens with real toads” line has been one of my favorites for years!

This is a brilliant idea

… THIS IS THE BEST THING. I NEED THIS DONE NOW! ALRIGHT, PUBLISHERS, COME TAKE ALL MY BOOKS AWAY AND FIX THEM! MAKE THEM SO I CAN DO THAT!

Also do this with family trees.

Huh! That&#8217;s awfully clever!
