The following was brought to my attention by Mr Ian Sales (author of the great little novella 'Adrift on the Sea of Rains') through one of his tweets. It was a link to a blog by an SF writer called Ann Aguirre, who has written a lot of SF novels and has a healthy (and believeable) average rating on Goodreads of 3.92.
In her blog, Ann comments on how she has been treated as a woman in what is a very male-dominated genre, and it makes uncomfortable reading.
However, what is truly shocking are the comments which were made in response to her blog - talk about vile.
I am with many who have called for those who sent the disgusting comments to be named and shamed, though I do like Ian's somewhat radical and forthright alternative proposal:
the men who sent hate mail to the writer of that blog post deserve to have their cocks cut off in public. without anaesthetic.
