It’s easier to tell the same stories everyone else does. There’s no particular shame in it.Like other feminist bloggers, Hurley has received threats of sexual assault and death. And still she writes.
It’s just that it’s lazy, which is just about the worst possible thing a spec fic writer can be.
Oh, and it’s not true. (p. 262)
What are we risking by speaking up? Everything, certainly. But the far riskier business is not speaking up at all. The riskier future is the one where we all fear a madman incensed by something he read online plowing a car into our house more than we fear being hit by a random bus on the street. (p. 16)Hurley asks that we be honest and courageous. When someone is this honest in hers, it's hard not to promise to try.
