I'm a lady, you're a lady...we are the ladies.

Ask me.   Okay, but here's my question: who are...the ladies? Obvi we're the ladies. I'm not the ladies. Yeah, you're the ladies. I'm NOT the ladies. Yes, you are! You're the ladies! You're being unfair. You can't force me to be a lady. I'm not forcing you to be a lady, you just- okay, i'm a lady, she's a lady, you're a lady...we are the ladies.

Attanya: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because I love science fiction and fantasy books, but I’m tired of authors treating dragons and robots and magic as more plausible than black and brown characters

Jennifer: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because… when I was 13 a white girl told me it was selfishthat all of the protagonists in my stories were Latina because she “just can’t relate to nonwhite characters.” She made me feel guilty for writing about people like me. 

Aiesha: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because…Black Girls are more than sidekicks or “sassy, ghetto friend”
