Chauvanistic Statement Made by WIHM Board Member

Now I really don’t want to start a huge drama, but my Associate, Dr. Blood, made me aware of a rather sexist statement made by a lady who is on the board of Women in Horror. With the recent plagiarism situation regarding Lianne Spiderbaby, this person had to open their mouth on a public forum in regard to Lianne’s relationship with director Quentin Tarrentino make an incredibly sexist statement. The statement by this board member of this non-profit organization that is supposedly dedicated to promoting equality and giving women respect and recognition is I quote “If she did nail him, good for her. I hope he drops shitloads of money on her before she dumps him for someone that doesn’t make her ill to touch physically.” Not very politically smart at all. I’m sorry but for someone who is supposedly trying to promote women and garner them equal respect and recognition in the entertainment industry this is a less than complimentary statement to make in a public forum. To put it bluntly this statement is incredibly unprofessional and chauvinistic. Yes, I did say that word in regard to a female member of society. If you look at the definition of the word chauvinist it is not male specific:
Definition of chauvinist (n)
Source: Bing Dictionary
chau•vin•ist
[ shṓvənist ]
Somebody with sense of superiority: somebody with an excessive or prejudiced loyalty to a particular gender, group, or cause.

Honestly, as a friend, I would put out the suggestion to Jen and Sylvia Soska, who are the people who actually run Women in Horror,of course, once they get back from ComicCon, that they have a confab with their board about using restraint and reminding the members of the board that in public they need to represent Women in Horror in a far better light publically than what was presented in this instance. This is just a suggestion, ladies.
