Sexism in SF

Today I read a post about Ann Aguire's experience with sexism in SF. It makes me so angry to read about what's happened to her at panels and as an author in general that I will make this post short, and let you read the article for yourself.

I want to write SF. I am currently working on an SF project which will probably be considered soft, since it's character based. Does it make me any less of a writer because I'm a woman? NO. Does being a woman mean I can't write SF? NO. Do the people who believe this have their heads stuck in an uncomfortable spot which limits their access to sunshine antiquated views about women in writing and publishing? ABSOLUTELY. Read the article.
