R Scott Bakker Mods, feel free to (re)move this if inappropriate, but having read the book club threads (where most of the participants bailed on his novel) and seen some recent comments on Twitter, I thought this was worth bringing up.

Apparently Bakker claims to be a feminist, on the following (frankly bizarre) grounds:

1. The desire to rape is hard-coded into the male brain and therefore incurable.
2. Women must therefore resign themselves to dealing with this situation, not hope for sexual freedom and equality.
3. By bringing these "facts" to his readers' attention, Bakker is helping women and therefore a feminist.

All I can say is...WTF???

Re: Fantasy genre - a male preserve? Oddly, I find that most of the SF on my shelves is by women, whereas the fantasy is mixed (and most of my favourites are by men).

I have no idea what this means...
