Why doesn't Wattpad have a horde of stories talking about patriarchy, Islamophobia or other political issues?
Why do our female protagonists always have to be clumsy, dumb virgins and the boys always arrogant and smirking assholes who have fucked every girl they ever laid their eyes on (and who, not to mention, are also equally dumb)?
Why are they living in a world exactly like ours but in their world, only an exaggerated, perfect love has a place? Why is there no war? Why is there no fear of being shot just because someone can't even tolerate the colour of someone else's skin?
What is this obsession with a clean, perfect world where everyone fits in all too neatly?
And why are we avoiding all these questions?
Hi, so I am a teenager who likes to write about everything but teenagers. Not to be condescending, but in my opinion, we all can move on from writing exclusively about stinking rich teens and CEOs of the biggest companies and explore the realities of life while still indulging in a little daydreaming.
I love talking and debating about things, particularly politics and feminism and other happenings in the world.
Find me on Instagram to follow my journey as a writer; for book and movie recommendations, my music preferences as we explore Indian culture together! Link is below:
