Yes, I understand why people are saying that it is awesome that girls are writing Mary Sues. What I'm trying to address is the ways in which this may not be so amazing for the other teenage girls who may be reading their Mary Sues.

Privileging the author entirely over the reader is not something I believe in, and the overall conversation seems to be geared only at examining the authors' POV without ever considering the readers'.
