Some sexist bastard at the Telegraph wrote the following:
Women turn to fiction, I would guess, because it is the last reservation for men who are neither violent thugs nor politically correct weeds, where a girl can still get her bodice ripped without the bodice ripper being locked up.
What the? Is this guy on crack? No, Mr. Pig, I do not read fiction because I secretly desire to be raped. I read a certain portion of fiction because I enjoy it, and bodice rippers are never found in my reading list. If the point of your essay was to bring attention to the decrease in male readers, it was completely lost after this paragraph. Grow up and get a fucking clue.
