While I agree with the point, this author has clearly never read Twilight.

I personally agree with this, but as with photoshop, for example, there is a tasteful way to use a mary-sue and a very .. bad way to use them.

The term is kind of being thrown around and abused and people don't know what they're talking about when they say 'ew that's a mary-sue' and that's where this author makes a good point.

IA. Its degenerated to a point where people just use the term to justify their annoyance of a certain female character. I really applaud the author for making this essay. So pretty and eloquent(´・ ω・)つ
