Honestly, I go home, sleep twelve hours, get up and check LJ and it's like an asteriod hit the hotel while I was out.
This Rachel person has toasted her career, by posting thoughtlessly and without respect for the mystic power of words. To me it looked like she has worked up some kind of jaded misanthropic misogynistic pose persona online, that is now mixed up with her Real Life. Whether she was trying for that effect, or not.
I was talking to my kid on the phone (in college)(who used to go to WisCon as a kid but apparently missed the fat activism stuff, as it was not on his radar) and he was then able to google the incident quite easily, even without any of the details... So I hope this will lead to some good discussion.
We are bigger than that! Ha ha! the bigger people, right!
