this is what outspoken women have to put up with
A charming and insightful comment just posted on my review of The Book of Life:
I often delete comments such as this — which show up with depressing and predictable regularity — but I feel that sometimes they’re worth leaving so that we are reminded how little it takes for some people to lash out at a woman who dares to express even mild approbation at how our culture treats women.
And also, I need to remind everyone of this: The word feminist is not an insult. You do not wound me when you call me a feminist. That’s what I am, and I have never made a secret of it. Try harder, assholes.
