"I talk about the gods, I am an atheist. But I am an artist too, and therefore a liar. Distrust everything I say. I am telling the truth."

What /is/ this?

Okay, seriously, what the fuck?

My rant on women in KHR was far from the first thing I've written castigating some anime/manga or other for presenting women as useless frills or objectified sex shows or whatever other negative stereotype was in question. I'm fairly sure it wasn't the first time such an entry has been linked on a meta comm.

So why is this particular entry drawing so much fire? I just ran across yet another (annoyingly clueless) screed against it while googling for a KHR timeline for pity's sake!

Is there really such a concentration of anti-feminist women (I shudder that such a phrase can still be written) in KHR, or did this particular entry just happen to fall into the orbit of a small knot of them and I have the bad luck to keep stumbling over their excrescence?

WAROGAGOT is a handy acronym which stands for Wailing And Rending Of Garments And Gnashing Of Teeth. I use it sometimes as a tag.

It is also nicely onomatopoetic, being similar to the sound one makes when, for example, one has just spent five hours working on a website, trying to fix a problem, and then trying to fix the problems of the fix, only to find out that it doesn't work anyway and one has to reload the flawed copy of the database from backup and just live with it. And with five wasted hours of computer anguish.

The sound one makes an hour later, when one loads the one line of code that it took three minutes to type which fixes the initial problem is a little different.
