Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam, of Surveyfail fame, are back. And they have a book out. So Ogas is promoting his evo-bio-psycho fake science here: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/billion-wicked-thoughts/201104/why-feminism-is-the-anti-viagra

Considering their history, and Ogas recent post, this new book is *not* on fandoms' reading lists. Or feminists' reading lists. In fact, I really don't want to think of the sort of people who might buy this book. :(

It's not directly Fanlib-related, but I'm posting a link here because I theink many of the same people in fandom were involved, and it covers many of the same issues: male academic outsiders tried to profit off of fandom, got their over-privileged, obnoxious, unprofessional arses kicked, and then ran away crying about evil fangirls.

Ithilian posted about it on Livejournal here: http://ithiliana.livejournal.com/1515241.html?format=light

There's a post by Courtney at Feministing here: http://feministing.com/2011/04/11/feminism-once-again-blamed-for-well-everything/#more-32198

And also a post by Phosfate at Clairvoyant Wank on Journalfen here: http://www.journalfen.net/community/clairvoyantwank/479741.html?view=21894397#t21894397 .

The Clairvoyant Wank post recaps most of Ogi Ogas history, but Elf also made a Linkspam masterpost over on Dreamwidth: http://linkspam.dreamwidth.org/5800.html

(I also cross-posted this on my journal, here: http://zellieh.dreamwidth.org/125168.html, and at LJ.)
