I went to the link yesterday with the intention of trying to read the article...got as far as the title and started to get shouty at the screen so backed out before I burst something.

Skip the article, but read the comments if you have a chance. They're fantastic.

I just did :) I don't think he gets it though. I feel a shout coming on again... I better go lie down in a dark room with a damp cloth on my forehead until it passes :D

Nah, just read the apology and I'm still shouty. I don't see any apologies for his views. He's saying sorry for making people shouty but he's not really aplogising for what MADE them shouty in the first place.

The bit that got me from the first article, (and I'm paraphrasing here) was "Hmmm, this girl on the train is pretty and looks successful, wth is she reading romance for?!!"

I just can't even.
The apology is almost worse than the actual article! He makes assumptions about a genre he has never read... so stupid! And extremely condescending.

I know, right? Like I said, he's just digging the hole deeper and deeper.
Yeah, but it's so stupid I don't even feel like commenting...
