1I've certainly been called a misogynist and that to me is strange. It feels so old-fashioned to think because you write about awful women that you don't like women. To me, it's worse to only write about good women. I'm tired of women as the supporting character, women as the helpmate, women as the adorably flawed heroine - she can be front and center, but only if she falls down a lot and has trouble with men.
