A thread got closed at Boingboing while I was carefully crafting a very intelligent and worthwhile reply [cough], so I'm going to lay it all on my readers, both of you, instead:

Edit: It's part of the never-ending debate about misogyny on the internet (and in comics (and in the world)), so if you've had enough of all that, here's a cut: Read more... )

Over on Adrants' post on the Violet Blue–boingboing kerfuffle, there's this comment from Suzie Q about the Amanda Congdon thing:
This is a pretty blatant slam on Congdon for dishonesty regarding her corporate sponsorships, and may in fact have been related to Congdon leaving ABC ( I believe I heard a rumor about them getting upset when they found out about the side vlogging).
Essentially, Violet Blue possibly got Amanda Congdon fired, or at least that's what it looks like. I would imagine that very likely, VB found out about this in a Boing Boing-related way. It could even be that VB didn't get her fired, but betrayed their trust in revealing the info about her.

Now the shitstorm of Violet Blue's flying monkeys has passed over boingboing, I hope this is the last time I blog about it.
