Thank you for this, Laci Green
As someone who’s been writing — accurate and trauma-informed queer and poly BDSM and erotica featuring people of color — since I was 12, I’m sick of this false-equivalence attitude that young=dumb as shit.
It’s a red flag to me when someone struggling in business identifies their primary problem as the market, and getting other people to realize the “real” value of the bargain that’s being offered right under their noses. Fail. Business problems almost always stem directly from the product — not meeting a real need, too expensive to make, no better (or worse) than alternatives etc. The Times is no different.
