    Lol everybody, myself included, is writing about the boy problem. Ugh, it makes it us sound like we’re a plague, or something.

      It’s funny, isn’t it? I guess people are just trying to figure out why the ratio between girls/boys reading is so huge, and everyone wants to find the solution (or the problem, I guess).
