Because Obviously Women Rule the World

Tim Lott has blasted the Orange Prize as being a "sexist con-trick" in an article for the London Telegraph. Apparently there are too many women running the publishing world and only publishing books for their own selfish interests.

That's a big bit of whining. Perhaps he ought to try telling this to the countless women who are FORBIDDEN to read or go to school by fundamentalist regimes; perhaps he ought to try telling this to the countless women who throughout millenia were prevented from reading OR writing. Should they have had the good fortune to get "published" or circulated in some way, they are now topics of "rediscovery" for "feminist" scholars.

Bite me, Lott.
