Dear Dudebro

This is why John Scalzi pretty much owns the Internet.

Some months ago, Scalzi said that if his Twitter followers could raise $500 for Clarion within the next half hour, he'd have someone take a picture of him wearing a very nice Regency frock, and post it to his web site. They did, and he did. Much more recently, some misogynistic little boy whose insult quotient is about at the level of "Neener neener!" took the picture and memeized it, in a way he clearly thought would be distressing to Mr. Scalzi. [smirk]

Click through to see the picture, and enjoy seeing Scalzi hand it all back to this guy with a dumptruck. Seriously, this is awesome. :D

ROFL Before I even got to John's jewel-tone comment, I thought "He's a winter. He should have gone with a burgandy or royal blue dress."

But yeah, the dudebro needs a dictionary. "Feminist" doesn't mean what he thinks it means. *shakes head*

Suzan -- there's considerable discussion down in comments about what color John should've been wearing in place of the mint green, and some debate about accessories as well. :D
