The whole thing is a very interesting read, she even touches on the connection between feminism and veganism, the erasure of radical feminism- even Reddit! Despite being written many years ago, it’s still incredibly topical. Here are some key parts that stood out:
"I sense that younger feminists have been encouraged toward a view that dismisses second wave feminism. [...] Yet, second wave radical feminism is the source for intersectional analysis. It is important to understand why that is."
"Instead, a campaign of intimidation, harassment, and libelous charges occurs. It seems the main purpose is to keep me from speaking on college campuses or get me disinvited if I am speaking. Their goal is to silence me."
"Libel was always around, but it's become easier for false information to be spread through blogs and responses to blogs, such that it trickles down and then gets re-posted on other forums like Reddit and facebook, and eventually makes it to larger blogs and plays a role in decisions made on college campuses and beyond."
"Who benefits from this attempt to silence me and to intimidate people who work with me? Why is there an incapacity to trust readers or listeners to evaluate what they read and hear? By silencing the discussions before they happen, everyone involved is done a disservice."
