I'm not only offended by the writer's attitude, but by his representation of all freelancers as one, incredibly entitled, lazy lot. Any good freelancer considers "freelancing" his business, and we work hard (Dare I say from 9-5?) to earn a good living . . . the same scoffed-upon kind that lets you be a food snob and buy that top-shelf dog food.
The truth is: if you're getting paid a pittance to write a few hours of ODesk-assigned erotica per week, while your fiancée works hard to finance your life, you're not freelancing, you're freeloading.
