Something to bitch about

Book publisher Silman-James Press takes the New York Times to task for its hypocrisy (yes, I know, hypocrisy at the Times isn't exactly breaking news).

Apparently, after twice refusing to publish the name of Jen Shahade's book, Chess Bitch: Women in the Ultimate Intellectual Sport, in order to "... protect the sensibilities of its readers", the Times published a piece in the August 6th Sunday magazine, "... 'Pops Goes the Feminist', in which the word 'bitch' is used liberally."

Read Silman-James Press' letter to the New York Times.
