Why was my approved review deleted?
I wrote a review for The Gilded Age that was popular (lots of votes and lots of helpful votes) and has since been deleted. The review is below. Can I please be told what about my review violated review policies? Is it a violation to correct the historical record in your review of a period drama? Here's the review:
Stereotypes, cliches, pandering
Here we go again. Another story that's going to focus on race and class and sexual orientation, blah blah blah while playing up to tired old one dimensional female tropes like shy but plucky ingenues and cliche catfights between malevolent mavens. Newsflash: in 1882, women of all races, classes and sexual orientations were the legal property of their husbands under common law coverture with no legal identity or civil rights of their own, including the vote. To make it look like rich white women had all this formidable power is a gross misrepresentation of this historical time period to pander to today's zeitgeist. This is made for the Harlequin romance reader with regressive ideas about women. Skip it.
