I AM a feminist, and I feel you're completely undermining legitimate arguments in favor of gender equality by equating Hannah's post with sexism. You are crying wolf in this instance. She was not railing against strong female protags, as I see you and a few other authors posting, but rather in favor of well-developed male characters not reduced to mere 2-D love interests for fmeales. YA lit IS dominated by romances about teenaged girls and dreamy male love interest. Edward Cullen is as objectifying to men as Baywatch was ot women.

Hannah made a great point, but people with blinders on obviously don't want to hear it/want to skew it into an argument it is not.
