So it went down like this.
SFWA announced that they’re putting a task force on fixing the Bulletin RIGHT NOW and that’s a good thing. We are hopeful!
John Scalzi said, somewhat ruefully, on Twitter that this is what he gets for thinking that the last month of his tenure as SFWA president would be quiet.
I told him that he had tempted the Fannish Misogyny Fairy with such thoughts.
He said he wanted to see an illustration.
There are very few people for whom I will whip off a spontaneous illustration, and I have to be in the right mood (my buddy Mur is still waiting for her sugar cube golem!) but all the stars aligned, I found photo ref of Hoary Marmots (because A) these are very hoary attitudes and B) if you google them, there are some marvelous shots of hoary marmots sitting around in groups, looking like grumpy old men) and…well…
Prints are available! And if you want to post this around to fight the forces of People Saying Stupid Things, you are more than welcome–give me some credit in the comments or link or whatever.
Is there any chance at all of getting that print on a T-shirt? Because I’d by one. Or two. Or several.
Second the shirt! This is fantastic. 😀
Yeah. I’d wear that on a t-shirt.
To be fair, it was the pro misogyny fairy that paid Scalzi a visit. But you’re right on with the marmot.
I’ve been considering a blog which would satirize misogyny the same way Jesus’ General used to satirize right-wing craziness, but it sounds way too much like work and so far I haven’t gotten the tone just right.
Alex R. – Have you seen Manboobz, subtitled “Misogyny: I mock it”?
You know, I’m kind of left at a loss for words when confronted by a hoary marmot I think would pinch my bottom. That’s a creepy little lear Mr Get Me a Coffee Would Ya Honey, has got there!!
P. Kirby ,
T-shirt. For sure. I’d buy the hell out of this T-shirt.
I thought this was pretty awesome. 🙂
I LOVE this! (particularly in light of the even more recent SFWA events).
