So, last night the SJW types over at the Hugo awards decided they'd rather burn the whole thing to the ground than give out an award based on what the readers like instead of social justice reasons:
The members of the World Science Fiction Society rejected the slate of finalists in five categories, giving No Award in Best Novella, Short Story, Related Work, Editor Short Form, and Editor Long Form. This equals the total number of times that WSFS members have presented No Award in the entire history of the Hugo Awards, most recently in 1977.
Here are a few of the people on the #SadPuppies slate that should be quite surprised to learn that they were denied a chance at an award for being white males when they wake up this morning: Rajnar Vajra, Larry Correia, Annie Bellet, Kary English, Toni Weisskopf, Ann Sowards, Megan Gray, Sheila Gilbert, Jennifer Brozek, Cedar Sanderson, and Amanda Green.

...way more sexy than any sci-fi I'd read before either.
After seeing so many women reading James Patterson, I read one of his books to see what it was all about, and wasn't very impressed with the writing, but I did figure out why he's so popular.
Women like pornographic murder mysteries, and don't really care if they're well-written or not.
The book I referenced above was definitely pornographic -- in the opening scene one of the main female characters is using a gun as a dildo. Honestly, it was the most sexually explicit book I've read or listened to.
