This is fascinating. Apparently some commenters argued that some of the books weren't feminist, so Bitch removed them from the list. Then authors like Scott Westerfeld got pissed off and asked for their books to be removed from the list in protest.
I happen to be a Scott Westerfeld fan, and I'm as anti-censorship as they come. But I kind of think Scott is being a big baby here. I mean, Bitch isn't banning or censoring or in any way telling people not to read those books--they just decided to take them off the list. And to my mind, they can put whatever books they want on their list, whether the authors like it or not. They could make a list of the 100 Worst YA Books of All Time if they wanted to.
I say suck it up, YA authors, and save your vitriol for actual book challenges. They are plentiful enough.
Thanks for the link, Brandy.
