An update:

Benjanun eventually returned to Twitter, Tumblr (of course) and her main blog, still minimizing her involvement in the trolling and insisting that people were now threatening her life and being meeeeeeeean to her poor oppressed Thai queer-lady self.

Then someone uprooted her actual identity: her name is Venesa Burranupakorn, the daughter of a family of Chinese-Thai billionaires who own a successful chain of hotels. She was born in the US and enjoyed a debt-free college education in San Francisco, after which her family connections landed her a job managing one of her uncle's luxury hotels in Thailand. She was manager there when a tourist died in the hotel after being poisoned by an insecticide allegedly used on the hotel mattresses to kill bedbugs. She then went on to manage another one of her uncle's hotels, where, in 2011, six tourists died in an identical poisoning incident. The hotel originally blamed these deaths on food poisoning from a local street vendor and "bad luck." The poisoning was only confirmed after investigative journalists from New Zealand posed as tourists and did their own testing, as the corporation hired by the hotel kept conveniently losing their samples. No one was ever charged in either incident.

PLEASE NOTE: no one has ever seriously considered that Burranupakorn might have deliberately or directly poisoned these hotel guests. The deaths themselves were ruled accidental, albeit caused by irresponsibility on the part of the management...which consisted of Venesa Burranupakorn/Benjanun Sriduangkaew. At best, her role is criminal negligence. However, given Burranupakorn's open hatred and disdain for white people, accompanied with the glee she took in imagining creative ways for white people to suffer and her relentless, years-long campaigns of harassment against people she considered deserving of punishment for the sin of being stupid fucking white people, a lot of her detractors have wondered aloud what her reaction must have been to white tourists dropping dead on her watch.

The moral of the sad tale of Winterfox is that if you have enough of daddy's money, you can call other people out on their privilege while getting away with actual, literal murder.

Jesus fucking Christ. It's worse than I ever could have imagined.

... Anybody got a photo?

Searched, under both her current name (Venesa Burranupakorn) and her various assumed names. No luck so far- anyone else got further?
So far all anyone's been able to find under her real name is a birth record. One person has said there are photos of her at a sci-fi conference but wouldn't say where, which could mean they either don't exist or this person was taking the high road to protect her from further trolling. Everyone suspects there may be more stuff in Thai, but no Thai speakers have stepped up to the plate to look for it.

ETA: This beautiful person who has been keeping dox on WF for years notes that her real name has been misspelled on some documents. You might get more results from "Buranupakorn."

This is the perfect confluence of factors that are why even leftists increasingly hate and fear SJWs and their pernicious influence on nearly everything they touch.

This kind of person, a literal killer even if by negligence rather than malice, is who portrays themselves as the guardians of morality, in this case in science fiction. This is the kind of person who will run things in a system of enforced ideological conformity. Not at all surprisingly, they're wealthy, entitled as fuck, and derive their claimed authority from entirely self-manufactured images of their identity rather than any lack of so-called "privilege" that they have personally experienced.

Meanwhile, they are abusive and often outright sadistic monsters against the very people they claim to be "protecting" from freedom.

A note on why her name is Thai sounding rather than Chinese, basically the Thai government wants to assimilate ethnic minorities by forcing them to become Thai, now the only minority that been a problem with this are the Malay in Pattini since their Muslim. Ten bucks on her family being a yellow shirt, which is monarchist quasi fascist group in Thailand.

If I understand the process correctly, it also makes it extremely easy to trace her family, as I believe that part of the process of changing one's surname to a Thai one is that you have to register a completely original name. Therefore all the Bur(r)anupakorns in Thailand should be related.

And yes, they're totally yellow shirts. One of her uncles is mayor of Chiang-Mai, and there's been some evidence that a lot of other family members have political ties. It might be part of the reason why she's done such a thorough job of wiping her online tracks, since she wouldn't want to disgrace her family (and also because she's made occasional anti-monarchy politically charged remarks which will get you in big-time trouble in Thailand).

So, if she comes from an influential family, why does she do the things she do?
Actually, I want to bring this up. Why does she want to hurt her peers? Doesn't she want to have the easiest time with getting her writing published by not attacking other artists?

In creative industries, it is who you know. Pissing people off is usually a no go. This amount of unprofessionalism especially from someone with political and socioeconomical ties baffles me, especially in an asian society, where honoring your family is very important.

The answer is because she's a whiny little brat who feels like she can do whatever she wants because she has daddy's money.

Wasn't there a photo of her in one of the feminist/liberal site threads over in Community Watch? I remember her being mentioned in a post at the very least.

Because her audience is really American. Americans is stupid.

This is a really good point to make.

BS was a bully and provocateur long before she was a writer. She began to target both new and established SFF writers when she was a literal child on the internet, and she continued to harass these same people as she grew up and began to achieve success as an author of short fiction. She is extremely good at establishing exactly how much abrasiveness a community is willing to take, and then staying just within those limits for a long time.

In my opinion, before her bad behavior became public, BS's short stories seemed kind of meh. Her work has a mannered and polished surface heavily reminiscent of other literary-inflected SFF, but little in the way of memorable substance. After this scandal broke, I felt like her output suddenly became much more interesting. Her style turns out to be highly derivative of certain specific writers whom she had bullied for years, returning to the same targets under different identities and personae. Moreover, the content of her stories - and BS persona - both seem calculated to be proof against her own arsenal.

That is, in the SFF community, there are longstanding issues with people supporting authors for political reasons, regardless of the quality of their work. On one end of the spectrum, this is how a risible hack like Tom Kratman ends up being nominated for a Hugo Award. At the other extreme, Venesa Burranupakorn - via her Requires Hate platform - seemed to be establishing her BS identity as the only writer in a particular niche to pass an ideological purity test. Maybe this was strictly for her own amusement, or perhaps, by establishing her competitors as problematic personae non grata, she was strategically thinning the herd.

I'd honestly appreciate this from a meta standpoint, if her actions hadn't harmed people and damaged their careers.

BS is insulated by wealth from the consequence of her actions, and appears to enjoy a certain brand of manipulative and disruptive gamesmanship within the SFF community more than she values her career as a writer. For people of normal means, making a living through writing is a precarious, high-risk endeavor. A reasonable person would never dream of shitting where they eat in the way that BS did, and does. It's her unwavering commitment to repeating the same mistakes over and over that raises her from "bad actor" into the category of "lolcow." So we can discuss her here and undermine her SEO.

At one point, she was using this partial headshot as an author photo. Whether it is actually her is unclear.

Sounds a bit more H. H. Holmes to me.

Jesus Christ, this saga took a turn into some dark places.
My original theory about this bitch was she was probably a white man.

I'm kind of glad that's not the case, but she definitely is someone at the very apex of getting-away-with-literal-murder privilege.
