No one wants a sapphic book from someone who is openly biphobic.

"I am gonna market my new YA books about sapphic girls by liking and laughing at biphobic tweets and then saying I only laughed at bi people out of 'love'" is probably the worst queer book marketing strategy I've seen yet

book isn’t even out yet but giving it a one star anyway because I don’t support biphobic authors

not supporting this bc the author is biphobic and clearly shouldn’t be writing for kids if they hate parts of the queer community.

i don’t trust any person writing f/f that likes biphobic tweets thinking they’re funny.

if the author willingly supports biphobia via Twitter i have no doubts that this book will equally be as traaaaaaash

my fav thing abt this mess is the way she "apologised"


(also i guess trans kids aren't que*r????)

All these incredible queer authors out here, and some biphobic disaster thinks this bi woman is going to help support her career? NAH.

As someone who's bisexual, I refuse to support authors that promote biphobic messages on their social media.

yikes the last 24 hours did not bode well for this chick ... i guess agreeing that your audience of biwomen can be made a mockery of if they marry dudes doesn’t help book sales? shocking

as a book reader, a book seller, and a bisexual, i do not support biphobia.

We need queer authors that support all members in the lgbtq+ community. Don't read this book if you're looking for good representation because I assure you you'll see a wave of biphobia

as a bisexual, i'm deeply offended and hurt by this author's blatant and unapologetic biphobia. as a member of the lgbt community and the author of an lgbt book, there is literally no excuse for the things they've said... do better

Did I make a Goodreads account just to review this biphobic author? Maybe so.

There's a need for more LGBT literature but I will not support an author who discriminates against a large part of the community by openly displaying biphobic opinions on social media.

Lmao the author is openly biphobic so I’m giving this a hard pass

I wonder if the girl is as crushed as this author's career, I'll never know because I'll never read it and hopefully no one else will either. Biphobia gets you nowhere, especially when you're trying to write for vulnerable people. It's a no from me.

I don't believe in rating a book 1-star without reading it.
But I will say, hell to the nope.

The plot was promising but the author can fuck off with her biphobia
