fanwank of the week: Self-publishing star faces backlash for misogynist rant

I hesitate to recommend clicking this, because I hate doing anything that'll help commercial sites profit from promoting outrage, but the story's here: Self-publishing star faces backlash for misogynist rant -

It should be noted that the subject of Howey's rant was not revealed. She dissed self-publishing, and he responded by blogging about her as a bitch. In the brave new identitarian future, insults will not suggest identity. I suppose this means from now on, we're supposed to speak of female dogs, and, by implication, female men.
