The Short Version, Because That’s All It Needs

From The Guardian comes this observant article on the success women are finding in self-publishing.

Reactions can be summed up thusly:

“Let me argue the methodology!  Let me discredit a single line in the article!” — Folks who are certain there wouldn’t be any gender disparity if women would just shut up about it already.

“It’s just because of romance!” — Folks who either failed to read the entire article, don’t want the wrong type of folks playing in their sandbox, or both.

“Yeah, but those women are just lucky.”  Folks who’d rather ignore and/or degrade the achievement of successful women than accept that their success happened outside the traditional scope.

“I don’t need to read this because it’s all bullshit anyway.”  Folks who saw “women” and/or “self-publishing” in the article’s title, and assumed the topic wasn’t worth their time.

“Yep.” — Women who are self-publishing.
