Rachel Manija Brown and Sherwood Smith posted this. As Seanan McGuire said, this was a very brave post.
One should not have to be brave to do this.
The quote in the header is from Joanna Russ. And, at WorldCon, I held my tongue when a woman said that she thought Russ should have been more forgiving. She was probably of Russ's generation, and I doubt she would have been at all impressed if I had quoted The Female Man: "We would gladly have listened to her (they said) if only she had spoken like a lady. But they are liars and the truth is not in them."
