    "Proving that not all sci-fi is about female subjugation (and really, the sci-fi writing industry is copping a beating lately for it)"

    SF fandom is taking more of a beating because of the over-reaction by SFWA "anti" fascists. And it'd be interesting to see what Bujold (and Moon) actually think about the fracas to which you allude. I'm betting that Bujold and Moon support Resnick and Malzberg.
