Hey, Harlan?

This is so not okay.

We can discuss it openly because it's a (finally) public example of something we have all seen far too much of in vaguely-public settings in the field.

I wonder if part of the reason that fandom feels it can be so open in discussing this is because the first public account publically condemning it came from a male -- pnh?

I realize this is pure supposition, but if the first voice out of the gate had been female (or had been less notable), I wonder whether the responses would've shown as much consensus.
I think it's more that Patrick is credible.
Fair enough. I had a moment of doubt while reading the thread (which is what led to my comment), but your certainty is reassuring.
Well, sure.

I don't think there's anything at all wrong with using the sympathetic person in a (relative) 'position of power' (societal power, I mean) to help make and enforce change. That's pretty common, really, in issues of race and sexism and other charged situations.

It's sometimes frustrating, but on the other hand, as I say, I'm all for using all the tactics at our disposal.
