Tumblr post satirizes self-important male writers

Yes, yes, not all male writers think this way, but this list of "Male Writer Thoughts" floating around Tumblr gave me a laugh.

Tumblr user FancyFade came up with the bullet points, which satirize the ways in which (some) male writers misinterpret issues of feminism and historical accuracy and/or think their work is a tad more original than it actually is. I'm particularly glad the post calls out the fact that female authors are constantly accused of writing "Mary Sue" author insert characters, but male authors who do the exact same thing seldom receive backlash.
