Actual quotes uttered by the old sexist in my writing class

“Why are there so many women in this class?”

“It was overwritten, boring, and I didn’t like it.”

“I just didn’t care for any of it.”

“Well, I’m not a woman so maybe women like that kind of thing. You know love and that.”

[while workshopping a short story written by a female classmate] “Your writing is soft, and so I didn’t understand a lot of it. If you want male readers it has to be harder.” [to which I responded in my head, “that’s what she said.”]

“Don’t you know anything about Vietnam? If you’d have been in Vietnam you’d have understood the significance of that line.” [He said this to me because he had some questions about the feedback I had written on his story]

Poor Vodo. I swear the outspoken, unbalanced, and offensive are drawn to his classes.

Everything the light touches is my kingdom. Well, at least where this website is concerned. There's an about me section if you are so inclined to know things. All the posts were written by me. I have a lot of words.
