Pounded in the butt by sf purists  
In defense of Chuck Tingle

He must be reading different blogs that I am. I mostly read Making Light and File 770, and the overwhelming majority of people I read think that Dr. Chuck Tingle is pretty funny. They are emphatically not upset about getting butt sex all over their Hugos. They are angry with Vox Day for slating, but the dinosaur porn is actually pretty funny. Fandom has a long history of having revered pornographers amongst us. Andy Offut is the most obvious, but by no means the only example. I don't think that Tingle should be on the Hugo shortlist, but I also don't think that Moira Greyland's piece should be there.
