Ms. Sessions Stepp said that she welcomes criticism, though not from people who have not read the book or who have never conducted research.
"This is what I love about the bloggers," she said. "They haven't been out there interviewing young people for 10 years. They're talking about their own college experience. Everyone's had some sort of sexual experience and they all think they're experts on it."
The bloggers? That's me! I mean, I spend more time on LSS then anyone else (usually to the detriment of this blog), so, hurray for being noticed! I don't know of anyone else that she could possibly be referring to. That's right, a Pulitzer Prize winner is on my case. I've finally made it big!
Yes, I am talking about my own college experience (and the experience of high school friends). My own college experience has had hook-ups, long-term significant others, and dizzying dry spells. So what? Despite what you claim, Mrs. Stepp, I don't think I'm an expert on it. I just don't think you're an expert on it either.
Unhooked, if you can't tell, is driving me up the wall. I should totally be done with it by now but I had to take a break because it was making me feel both stupid and angry. I'm currently reading A Brief History in Time again in a futile attempt to regenerate brain cells. Um, and I also lost my autographed copy of the book. That's what's really getting in the way of publishing my top-10 LSS quotes. Don't worry, I'll find it. It's in my house somewhere.
