Never trust anyone who’s offended by the idea of a fictional character being queer.
Never trust anyone who’s offended when the race of a character gets changed from white to POC in an adaptation.

monumentoursetlist said: I work at my university's bookstore and every semester one of the professors teaches 'Fight Club' and it's so exciting to see boxes of it come in and rather disappointed to see people return their rented copied or sell them back. Once I returned a copy and the student wrote the synopsis of each chapter under the heading and I freaked out. My manager said it was in otherwise fine condition so we couldn't charge her but what spoilers. How do you feel about your work being taught ?
That fact that ‘Fight Club’ is being taught seems — to me — to underscore the dearth of novels that explore male issues. The past years have given us so many books, from ‘The Color Purple’ to ‘The Joy Luck Club’ to ‘How to Make an American Quilt,’ which depict women in groups and relationship, but almost no books depicting social models for men. That’s my two cents worth.
i am sitting here SCREAMING with laughter
what world do you live in chuck palahniuk
and how can i live in this world with a dearth of novels that explore male issues
showing this to everyone who tries to argue that palahniuk is being ironic and mocking masculinity and ‘male issues’ in fight club
It’s literally impossible to be this blind. Also, the books he listed are all pre-1995. And two of them famously focus on women of colour. Is he honestly comparing white men to women of colour in the representation stakes. IS THIS REAL LIFE…
this is so funny i cant believe he legitimately thinks that “male issues” are rarely explored in literature oh my GOD get ur head out of ur ass
