The Lady Poets & All Their Lady Parts

I get it. Getting called Critic Bitch, referred to as a smelly Margaret Wente, minimized, undermined (that's the most popular form): Ladies, when the assholes start calling you names and tweaking out on you on Twitter you know you're doing something right. It's a bitch. It's a nuisance. But it means you have a voice and you are taking up public space.

Oh, and we love us some assholes. Hemingway, you don't scare me. I still think you're fabulous.
