Lovecraft mysogynist?

What the world needs now is just one good female creepy monster, as opposed to regarding all women as monsters, but you won’t find it in this free download of an illustrated Lovecraft alphabet. Much has been made of Lovecraft’s racial attitudes, but what about his attitudes towards women?

And no, a ship named “Emily” does not count as a “female character”.

“But  *men* are still puppets”?  I see what they did there.
