Y’know, Amber asked folks to Google “false equivalence,” but nobody ever actually did.
I shelve hundreds of those damn things every week. It’s the same issue - you might as well put good ‘ol Fabio in tights and give him a superhero mask. The guys on those covers are ridiculous, overmuscled, and frankly unattractive. I’ve asked other ladies - they just laugh, and shake their heads. The women on those covers, I’d like to note, are usually svelte, sexy numbers with teeny waists and overflowing bosoms, barely contained by their corsets or regency gowns as they cling, hopelessly, dependently, to the bronzed, rippling abs of the men who are clearly supposed to be saving them from some unimaginable peril.
Do not even get me started on the newer paranormal romance covers. Do. Not.
