And so will its offspring, which of course you will have no problem making because you can just pluck another youngun from the same bush that all animals apparently abandon their young in. Maternal instincts be damned.

Or you can just breed it with animals you already have domesticated. It's not like hybrids would be sterile or prone to terrible and tragic genetic problems like blindness, deafness, weak bone structure, disease, cancer, or just plain mutations and malformations.


Don't bother doing research on what types of animals would be able to interbreed.

Remember, ALL love triangles need to go like this: normal girl meets a classy, well-off, well-dressed guy with an artistic interest, and a rugged and tough but sexy guy with a tough-guy interest like motorcycles or camping. In the end, the normal girl ALWAYS goes off with the classy guy.

But it's important to have no fewer than nine in depth sex scenes with the other guy to establish p***s- CONFLICT. Conflict... Hard, throbbing, 10-inch conflict.

Of course, why do you think they date so many of them? ((*Groan from the audience*))

Remember, women are sexually liberated now, which means they can have sex however they want, and be as promiscuous as desired, which they will be of course... No, this does not send the message that your female character is trying to be masculine by imitating male patterns of sexual promiscuity. BROTHA PLEASE! It means she's an enlightened feminist who is clearly thinking for herself. Also she's an intelligent responsible person who shouldn't have to face the consequences of a promiscuous lifestyle like unwanted pregnancy or STDs.

Femininity is a terrible thing and it's so much lower than masculinity. So to show a female character is strong, only give her masculine traits. This TOTALLY doesn't have any unfortunate sexist implications.

Of course not...

Because sexist implications aren't unfortunate. Because it's okay to be a LITTLE sexist. I mean, there are some things that are clearly wrong. But the idea that a man can do things better than women, that they should settle down and raise kids, that a woman is somehow under a special to get married before it's "too late", that men should always be in charge of their women, that women use sex to get what they want, these are okay. I mean, come on, boys will be boys and you gotta let men have a LITTLE fun.

You are either a feminine girl's girl, or a total hard-a** tomboy (who secretly has a soft side and just needs the right man to bring it out). There are no gradients or variations.

There are only a few ways to be a guy, too. Either you're manly, tough, strong, brave, hard-assed marine guy. Or aloof, mysterious, angry, bitter bad boy. Or you're sophisticated, classy, intelligent, yet shrewd and untrustworthy wall street man.

If you aren't being directly sexist, you aren't being sexist at all. Unless your character is screaming that women are inferior, it's not sexism!

Similarly, racism only exists in the form of direct racism. If there's no slavery or KKK hoods or cross-burning or racial slurs, it can't POSSIBLY be racist!

If you put in something sexist or racist in your story by accident, it doesn't matter. If you didn't intend for that to be there, it's okay.

It's totally impossible to write sexist stories if you're a female writer.

And it's impossible to write racist stories if you belong to a "minority" ethnic group.

Being a female writer automatically makes your story feminist.

If you write one bad thing about a woman, or have a character who is sexist, you are automatically a misogynist.

If a man dresses well and keeps himself well groomed, he must be gay. If said character has a child, he must be in the closet/pretending to be straight. If said character has a wife, she is only his beard. If he has multiple women, they are all part of his closet-mentality.

Men only think about sex. They can't function an entire day without pining for it.

Cats are always female. Always. Likewise, dogs are always male.

(Sort of related but sort of not) Age always trumps quality. If you're young then it's totally okay you don't follow grammatical rules and write inconsistently. Only adults understand plot holes and effective twist endings!

Writing is the hardest thing you could ever do ever. I mean, you might, like, break a nail! Godddd and no one getssss a writer eiiiiiither.

No one needs a certain kind of government, trade rules, or even a certain amount of people for more advanced technologies. A group of thirty people can run a town with a nuclear power plant if they were advanced enough.

It's also impossible to write racist stories if you like anime and manga.

When you're writing stories where characters have spirit or guardian animals, or superpowers based on animals, remember that only cool animals like wolves, hawks, and large cats can be such animals. It's not like other animals can have anything to offer.
