No, you may call me PROFESSOR Kittington. I have a doctorate in whiskerology.
Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.

I actually really dislike the idea of being super faithful to any ‘canon’ because its so limiting. Art and stories should be like seeds of flint, they set things ablaze or make things grow so telling people ‘no you have to accept and like all parts of this work’ is such bullshit to me.
And yes as someone who wants to be a published author someday I am on board with people re-interpreting my work or taking to some aspects and not others. I don’t care if I don’t always agree with those fans, their giving life to my work and making it their own and sparking their own creativity is more goddamn important than some minor ass detail I may or may not regret at some point putting down.
