Science fiction has cooties!

Well, some worry anyway. You know, with women actually writing and editing the stuff these days.

But, as John Scalzi says pointedly, "science fiction is founded on girl cooties." After all, since girls have cooties, and the first full science fiction novel was written by a woman, then by gumbo, science fiction is founded on cooties!

Scalzi's rant is funnier than that. And no, I didn't look up the original column he's ranting about---I'd rather not encourage that kind of nonsense.
