Her actual words:
About 3 years ago, John Scalzi posted a funny Tweet or something (maybe it was a MEME–I don’t remember now) on his blog about “Alpha Males.” This had been a popular archetype back when I was a romance writer, one that I found quite tiresome and unattractive. So I posted a throw-away comment to the effect that if I ever lived with a so-called alpha male, I’d soon wind up killing him and hiding the remains like Sweeney Todd did.
Then I went one with my life, very busy at that time, and never thought about it again. A month or two later, I was sitting at dinner with Scalzi, and while we were chatting, he said, btw, had I seen the days-long flood of angry comments that had followed my post? Nope. HUNDREDS of them. I think the topic eventually got up to about 800 posts, many of them so nasty that John (who moderates the comments on his blog) deleted them. This was due to VD and his followers reacting with outrage to my comment.
There are a lot of outrage monkeys following Vox’s blog and doing his bidding. I’ve no idea how many of them ponied up $40 to vote on the Hugos (we’ll have a better idea on the night of Aug 22, when the tallies are released), but it’s surprising how many people follow him and hop-to when he fires up the Group Outragemobile.

Whever I think “alpha male”… my daydream quickly becomes a Sweeney Todd nightmare in which I’m serving the remains to my dinner guests, disguised as some sort of heavy-seasoned stew beneath puff pastry, because I wound up killing said Alpha Male in sheer exasperation before sundown and need to get rid of the body….
How could anyone possibly object to a little throw-away comment like that? It's also a lesson in how low-rank women react instinctively to high-rank men. They fear and hate them.
