A proto-pinkshirt

Ursula Le Guin declines to blurb a book back in the 1990s.


Seeing what has become of science fiction in the interim, it's now obvious that she never belonged in the first place.

Pink SF may be fading but it's done a considerable amount of damage, in terms of turning off generations of people from reading SF and fantasy. Blue SF has won a pyrrhic victory so it's going to take a long time to turn things around.

Next feminist target: the NFL, which is in the process of being destroyed and at a much faster pace than SF because no one in the NFL wants to endanger their cash flow.

All this letter illustrates is that the left is very effective in destroying institutions, whether slowly for SF and surprisingly fast for the NFL.

Is she the one who wrote Earthsea? Man, that was a dull book, though it had some interesting ideas.

Also, what book is she complaining about? Now I'm curious to read this "self-contentedly, exclusively male" crime against the V.

Women, however, require some exclusively female safe zones because equality.

And yet non-Leftists -- including Vox himself -- don't hesitate to praise the work of Leftists.

Even when such praise is deserved, it should be a matter of principle for non-Leftists to refuse to do so, because they refuse to praise the work of non-Leftists.

Of course, Leftists go even farther and actively attack the work of non-Leftists, even when it is praiseworthy. As a non-Leftist, you might not want to go that far, but it would certainly be more than justified.

A shame - I loved "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas".

The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas were not, despite Le Guin's assertion, noble. They were cowards. The ones who stayed were evil. This binary universe of honoring the yellow-bellied for their brave flight from evil is in essence everything you must understand about Pink SF.

In Pink-speak, there is NO PLACE in society for those who welcome righteous conflict.

A professional would have declined the invitation politely. A worthy foe would have opposed the book publicly on principle. A mealy-mouthed partisan? Well, she might have whined in a note and believed herself to be clever.

I'm pretty shocked that McRapey hasn't channeled LeGuin yet. Of all of them, her writing is closest to his.

I dumped Ursula long ago. Seems she got older and it was mens' fault. So she went full feminist. Showed in her works, too.

A power-tripper, traitor, and rebel. Sad old waste.

Right now they're hammering the "No More" domestic violence commericals. Sincere actors come on to assure us that They Are Not Taking The Abuse Any More etc.

No problem tossing the nation's sons under the bus. Just somebody else's boy. I got my money and ain't messin' with Big Sis.

In the story itself, she didn't claim that the ones who walked away were noble or anything else. She just presented them as people walking away.

What LeGuin thought of those characters doesn't change the quality of the story itself. Authorial intent, you know...

You don't think this is her recusing herself from intruding on a male space?

Yeah, I don't like most of her writing, but I would need some context to judge that note.
