Women don’t read science fiction, says the New York Times. …O RLY?

No, Seriously, What About Teh Menz?

I have been sitting on this for a couple days and attempting to find some way to relate it to The Dudez, but I simply can’t. Nevertheless, it is so idiotic I feel the need to share it with everyone, so you guys will just have to suck it up and hear about how sexism hurts ladies for a while.

In short: the New York Times wants to know why women don’t like science fiction, except for A Wrinkle In Time. Apparently I was hallucinating Octavia Butler, James Tiptree Jr., Elizabeth Bear, Ursula K. Le Guin, Andre Norton, Anne McCaffrey, Connie Willis, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Margaret Atwood, K. A. Applegate, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Lois McMaster Bujold, C. J. Cherryh, Pat Cadigan, Mary Shelley, and Margaret Cavendish. I must have a very good imagination.

Yes, I definitely double-checked, and this is an article from 2012, not from 1952.
