This has been alluded to in a couple of threads, but I don't see an existing thread for it. Some of you have probably heard of the blogger/Tweeter acrackedmoon, who's used a variety of other pseudonyms over the years and used to blog at her notorious review site Requires Only That You Hate.
She's a Thai woman who wrote from a Social Justice perspective, and seemed to (still seems to) have an equal number of fans who love her anger and vitriol, and enemies who despise her for the same reason. The former generally approve of the direction she aimed her rage, the latter see her as a bully and a troll.
She was recently revealed to be the author Benjanun Sriduangkaew, who's been widely published, acclaimed, and nominated for awards in the past two years.
This has caused a great disturbance in the Force, with authors, bloggers, and BNFs lining up on all sides. There are a number of fairly well-known authors about whom she wrote absolutely brutal things, not just about their books, but about them personally, and while some shrugged it off, others have born grudges and don't seem likely to forget.
Personally, I always found ROTYH entertaining, sometimes even insightful, though her "performance rage" was often over the top and her Tweets (before she toned them down once she was getting published) sometimes degenerated to little more than "Whitey white man fuck whitey acid balls shitstain die blargleblarg."
I have mixed feelings about her "outing." It seems to me that it was inevitable and if she really believed no one would ever connect the two personnas publicly, she was foolish. That said, this is one great big ugly clusterfuck of hurt feelings and grudges and schadenfreude on all sides - it's hard to see anyone's position as being sincerely motivated by a concern either for justice or "protecting" anyone. People across the SJW spectrum seem to be lining up largely according to who they are friends with.
The most egregious behavior I think Sriduangkaew is guilty of is dishonesty - if you want to write brutal, nasty reviews and tweets, go ahead, and accept the consequences. If you grow up, become a pro, and decide you regret that part of your life, fair enough. But apparently she was making nice with other pros even while still engaged in her attack-dog behavior in her other persona, which is pretty two-faced. I also note that currently, she is bemoaning the fact that everyone is being bitter and hateful towards her, but has not yet shown a hint of remorse or acknowledgement that some people (and not just white men) were genuinely hurt by her antics.
In my opinion, this will not really hurt her professionally. There is a lot of angst and wailing and gnashing of teeth, as there always is when an author shows his or her ass, but how often has this actually dented anyone's sales or gotten publishers to anathemize someone?
I'll also note that I probably would not have heard of Sriduangkaew the author if not for this episode. I've now read some of her fiction (most of it is available for free online), and she is phenomenally talented as a writer (and evidently prolific as hell), even if her stories aren't entirely to my taste.
