John C. Wright (homophobic Sci-Fi "writer") can't hide.
Alleged Science Fiction writer and outright homophobe John C. Wright (but more on him anon) put up a very nasty blog post about SyFys commitment to more diversity in future programming, tearing into homosexuals.

When he got some similarly nasty comments, in a snit he deleted them and added even more homophobic bullshit to the post. As the heat got turned up more, and people threatened boycotts of his stuff (which is not a great sacrifice having looked at some of his stuff at Amazon), he took the post down. Now hes trying to hide and act like it never happened.

Uh, Johnny? The internet doesnt work that way.

For those who missed it, the full, comment-locked, anti-gay screed has been preserved at http://cnx.com/johncwrightisahomophobicdick.html. For those who are curious, and of a strong stomach, here are some choice excerpts:

I am hoping, of course, that future shows will also portray sadomasochism and bondage in a positive light we are all looking forward to FLASH GORDONS TRIP TO GOR, I hope. Love affairs with corpses, small children, and farm animals will also be on display in a natural nonchalant fashion in the new raft of progressive shows, titles such as I DREAM OF STINKY, PEDERASTY JUNCTION, and OLD MACDONALD HAD A SHEEP but no Mormons, whose moral standing we all abhor. The only good thing about Mormons, as we all know, is their polygamy. That we can approve of. Anything that offends the Patriarchy, we like. Evil is our good.


Or how about this one?

Why are you willing to tolerate sexual perversion but not racism? In a world with no standards, what makes a malfunction of love higher on your standard than a malfunction of hate? Is an irrational lust and longing to mimic the mating act with a sex with which one cannot mate, at its root, any more or less disconnected to reality than an irrational fear and hatred of a Negro? How do we know race-hate is not genetic? Look at how scorned and put-upon racists are! Can we spare them no cheap Leftist pity? Why dont we simply call racism an alternate anti-ethnic orientation, similar to hetero-toleration, but different?


Or my favorite:

In other news, Timothy Leary will be giving Sci-Fi an F grade for failing to portray drug abuse positively. Castro and Pol Pot will be giving Sci-Fi an F grade for their show BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, which portrays the mass slaughter of innocent human beings in a negative light. Dean Martin will be giving Sci-Fi an F for failing to portray drunkenness as life-affirming. Don Juan will be giving Sci-Fi an F grade for failing to have a show that portrays serial adultery in a positive light but Don gives BATTLESTAR GALACTICA an A for sleeping with robots. Uncle Screwtape reminds me the any form of sex that is sterile and selfish wins the approval of the Lowerarchy.


John, youre a dick. Revel in it. There are lots of dicks out there. Im one of them. But dont try to hide your dickery. If you dont want people to know youre a dick because it means they will like you less, then the only real option is to stop being a dick. You might be happier for it.

2. I'm assuming he's a second grade science fiction writer and a Moron(I mean Mormon) practitioner? lol
Best part is that he got beat down by comments. These people are no longer the mainstream.

3. I just read about this at Alas, A Blog this week.
Thank you for the link to the screen cap. What a truly stunning dick he is. I've never bought any of his books and now I know to avoid him forever. His wife is a piece of work, too. Get out of fandom jerkwads!

8. I think we need to add him to Dickipedia.
Anyone here an editor over there, so a newcomer isn't the one who writes it?

7. I put the info back into his Wikipedia page
being very careful to maintain NPV. Homophobes, you can run, but you can't hide.
