Rochita Loenen-Ruiz has an excellent post up at Strange Horizons on toxicity here:

citing an equally good article on call-out culture by Asam Ahmad.

My own novel is proceeding at a stately pace, which some might term glacial, but at least it is proceeding. I'm about to send off some material for a new collection, and otherwise we are gearing up for spring, which is well and truly sprung here in the south west of England - hyacinths and daffodils out everywhere, bird cherry filling the hedges, and orchards to be mown. Guess what I've been doing...

In Glastonbury, we've had a great weekend with the Faery Ball, and seeing old friends. Artist Anne Sudworth has been down for a few days and we've really enjoyed catching up. Good to see Brian Froud in town, too. Although I think everyone is saddened by the death of Terry Pratchett, who lived not too far away from here. A huge loss to the genre.

From what I have seen of it, "call-out culture" is another instance of the quite common phenomenon of the weak attacking the weak (or at best, the well-intentioned), because it is too difficult or too dangerous to attack the strong (or ill-intentioned).
