@JC: you’re right about postmodernism being its own entity, surely. And I think you can’t put too fine a point on that matter. As such, it was adopted by the left first, but has now spread to the...

You hate black people. Oh, and probably Mexicans too by extension. You think women shouldn’t be allowed to vote, or have any rights. This is proved by you getting your girl pregnant (see how that...

I’m more concerned with tight prose than the arc of the story or characters at this point. This seems like YA to me anyway, and that’s not my bag. I’m not sure what young teens want to read.
