Passive aggressive much? I've got elderly Jewish East European great aunts who never see their grandkids who would be embarrased to pull that "It's not like anyone will even listen to me..." and "As we all know social psychology..."
ETA - Yeah, and he is paternalistic, despite claiming not to be. Or maybe just condescending. And he is doing in these posts exactly what he does to women in his books - " be quiet, girl, and let me tell you what your problems really are." He writes women degradingly so he can show us how bad the degredation of women is, and he tells a woman on the internet to shut up, so that he can show us all how we should be talking.
Also, seriously, is this like a pathological thing with him? I can't think of many authors who are immature enough to bounce around the internet showing up in random comments sections where he's been mentioned to whine about how misunderstood he is. A little dignity, sheesh. And - for a person who makes a living writing prose, for fucks sake - he absolutely sucks at things like tone and nuance and not coming across like an annoying, condescending and priggish proffessor onto who's lawn we've all wandered, possibly dragging a dead pig thats on fire with us, even when he's not saying something risible.
