There is a reason why Superman rescuing Lois Lane remains a charming and beloved center of their myth even after more than half a century, whereas no one remembers or cares to remember any scenes of Wonder Woman rescuing Steve Trevor. The stark fact is that a healthy woman admires and should admire strength in her man, including when such strength sweeps her up in his arms. She should be delighted even if she is offended when Tarzan throws her over his shoulder yadda yadda blah blah a man should not admire physical strength in women, because yadda yadda.

Ugh. What an utter, mind-melting, nonsensical load of fucked up, sanctimonious, loathsome, sexist shit. Zero points for John C. Wright’s collection Transhuman and Subhuman: Essays on Science Fiction and Awful Truth.

I feel like antisepticizing my eyeballs now.

    I was skimming along in the Transhuman book, ran into WRight’s comment that he hates Flannery O’Connor. And I was like, “OK, that’s it, I can stop reading. Done.”
