An Interesting Reaction to Criticism

So, Stephanie Meyer has, of course, faced criticism for years over the fact that Bella has no agency and is basically a "damsel in distress."

How is she answering that criticism?

By rewriting the first Twilight book to be about Edythe and Beau with no other changes. In other words, she just switched the genders of her characters.

She...Rule 63'd her own book.

I'm sure it will sell very well, but I'm still quite amused.
