If you’re a Lefty, you have to be a Lefty all the way. You don’t get to be heretical* on things like the 9/11 Mosque and expect to keep your GoH status at a major feminist SF convention. You just don’t. And it doesn’t matter how much you qualify your statements**, either: once you’re past the heresy line, that’s it.
Well, live and learn, right? It’s not like many of those people read military science fiction, anyway.
*Although having to call that position ‘heretical’ is a insult to Giordano Bruno.
**Or going for crowd-pleasing by sneering at the Right. Notice which side’s more sympathetic to her on this? Yup, the Tea Partiers and the libertarians.
