Any fans on here?

I loved "The Goblin Emperor" (published under the pseudonym Katherine Addison), but found to my dismay that the fandom on AO3 is full of TRAs/woman haters so am currently sitting on a stack of unpublished fanfics.

Is that just a thing with the fandom, or has the author encouraged this crowd?

(I am a rather sensitive person and having an author whose books I fell in love with openly declare their hatred of women would break my heart, so I am on the fence on whether to buy any other books by Katherine Addison, even though I really love the style/atmosphere that apparently goes with that pseudonym.)

I haven't read the books published under the name Sarah Monette because they seem to be too dark for my liking, so don't know what the contents are.

Regardless of what comes to light, I will stay a fan of The Goblin Emperor. The protagonist at one point terfily recognizes a woman who is trying to pass as man because she has a female voice and all that ... so I guess in that case, I can separate the work from the author.

(In a saner world, I would assume that the author does not subscribe to gender religion because she obviously knows what a woman is when writing fantasy, but I have observed a lot of doublethink, so I figure nothing is impossible.)
