Good morning, all.

For those who are learning about what are now several dozen allegations against Sherman Alexie--all of which are 100% credible--go to my TL &/or search for his name on Twitter. Others are sharing their stories, too.

Here's what I've learned since last night:
In multiple instances, he explicitly threatened to end women's careers if they told anyone he had sexually harassed them.

Also, it seems that Native writers were targeted w/ the most force.
He's powerful in the literary world and powerful in the Native world.

The women who, by chance, reside at the intersection of both seemed to be prey for him.

The women are in no way to blame. NOT AT ALL.
As Sherman often discusses publicly and privately, roughly 80% of his readers are women.

I won't speculate why a man who has become very rich off of women has preyed upon several dozen of them over at least a 20 year period.
My inboxes are flooded. If I haven't responded to you yet, please know I will.

Also, scroll down my TL for the reporters who are writing the story. I can't ethically report it b/c he & were friends for 15 years.
If you want anonymity, all of us are ethically & legally bound to provide it.

He will not know your identity.

Again, if he targeted you, please know you're part of a tragically large group that is growing larger by the hour.

More soon.
