The author is a man, it should be noted. But I imagine that line was intended as subtle, irrelevant satire.

Ah, yeah, it's really no big deal. It struck me at first, since I thought the article was going to take things more seriously than it did--and I'm glad it was silly throughout! I recognize it now as humor, but it flew over my head at the beginning of it. On the bright side, I really enjoyed the story, and I've started reading Worm as well, based on your recommendation lower on this post!

If the first few chapters of Worm are off-putting, don't worry -- the story sort of leaves high school behind and really comes into its own.

The first chapter was a little weird, I wasn't sure about the whole highschool drama thing, but it's picked up, and I'm on 1.4 right now.
