Am I the only one who finds it insulting to said female horror writers that they re almost always characterized by their physical looks before their writing talent? And why aren't more female horror writers pissed off by this?
I'm not blind (despite the post below this one) and I won't be a hypocrite: I know that Beth Massie and Mary San Gionavanni and Sarah Langan and Poppy Brite and Yvonne Navarro and Sarah Pinborough and Alethea Kontis and my wife Lucy Snyder and many, many others don't exactly make me want to gouge my eyes out rather than look at them, but it seems to me they should be first and foremost praised and touted as writers, not contenders for Horror's Hottest Babe -- and Who Cares If The Hottie Can String Together a Sentence -- Am I Right, Guys?
I find this insulting. Is it just me?
