female narration

I find myself confused by the tendency of female narrators in modern novels to sleep with men they don’t like. They meet a man, take an instant dislike to him and then have sex with him. They decide that they loathe him and then take him to bed. The have horrible vicious fights with him and then make love to him. I can’t think of any male narrators – gay or straight – who indulge in this kind of self-abuse. I begin to suspect that this kind of behavior is fundamental to the female condition, or at least to intellectual women.

  1. Interesting take on that subject 🙂 Its really weird how authors think this is “cool” especially if they target younger readers

  2. “I begin to suspect that this kind of behavior is fundamental to the female condition, or at least to intellectual women.”

    I begin to suspect that this kind of behavior is reflective of authors struggling to find realistic conflict for their characters.
