I'm at uni right now and I'll be heading home in a few minutes, which is not very conducive to making a big post full of thinky thoughts, so I'll just leave you nice link.Holy Jesus, this post is bad. No, really.
It's the same one erjika
's already linked to (one of many links; off you go to read her awesome post
), and contrary to what I generally do when confronted with something that makes me go grrr
admittedly lots of things do
, I made myself read the whole thing.
Yeah. This whole thing
(compiled by rydra_wong
who must be an amazingly patient person) is turning poor Elizabeth Bear (who I'd never heard of before all this started) into a racist
. I'm barely paraphrasing here.
Go read the entire thing for yourself (or don't, in case you value your sanity or have heard of her and want to keep enjoying her books, I dunno).
Thinky thoughts of all kinds probably to follow once I get to my dad's.
