That isn't stereotyping, that's honesty. Think about it, I don't think many people accept that others are homosexual.

question for the person that started this topic. If you do not like K.A why are you on an Animorphs forum? That's like Joining a Harry potter forum and saying J.K rowling is a rich snob. Or joining a Twilight forum and saying Stephine meyey is an uncreative copycat.
BYW all this talk abouyt homosexualty remind sme about Snarry (Sevrous/Harry) fan fics.

Well, it's because the books are great, even if the person writing them isn't.
Also, the last comment was entirely unnecessary.

I completely agree ;) Though to be fair, it was really only one person who was offended, and I don't think that person is even around much anymore.

Let's also not forget that this wasn't a author preface where she wrote this. People need to remember that an author doesn't neccesarily agree with everything a character they write says. Otherwise, K.A. Applegate would also be liable for every quote Visser 3 ever said.

Ancient thread which I only skimmed a couple of pages from

BUT :p

I don't know if anyone point out that cats being standoffish came from "Rachel", it's her opinion that cats are that way. Next will you accuse KA of stomping on space aliens?
