I had no idea who Brynne was, or the level of her claim to fame, this morning. Now since I googled it, I know: she married a much older, much richer man and she generally dresses to show off lots of skin. Apparently that makes her a target for the judges for more than just her unimpressive dancing, which is what they are supposed to talk about.

Joanna Russ died today; I didn’t know her.
This is how the conversation goes: a professor, a pal or two, mention a book by Joanna Russ called How to Suppress Women’s Writing. I see it referenced online sometimes; I find an image, occasionally, of the cover, with the phrases “She didn’t write it,” “She wrote it, but she had help,” etc., naming and de-normalizing bad ideas that are always sneaking into my subconscious.
