Quotes
  • “What we need is more people producing content, more people being teachers, more people being entertainers who are on our side who don’t hate us to show the way and to show that it’s not going to be a painful process for people who want to come down the line and try to be in these fields.”
  • “I determined it was about 4-1 males to females who were submitting (writing material to magazines), but on the flip side, females were being published more than males. So when you break it down from the submissions, the odds of getting accepted as male vs female, as a female your odds of getting accepted are about 3x as high as it is if you’re a male.”
  • “The people who follow me and the people who buy my books are so loyal. If you’re thinking of coming out of the closet (as a right winger), the people who are behind you, behind me now, and behind Bre now, they are such loyal people. They’ll do anything.”
