I’m not interested in tearing women down over their failure to agree on one true and holy radical feminist doctrine. Maybe Murphy has a point, maybe she doesn’t. I certainly can’t tell from this. Even if she’s wrong - and all she seems to be saying is that we’d have a better chance of eliminating porn if we approached it’s users differently - all this piece seems to be interested in is monstering her.

I really don’t think purity politics is a way of advancing our goals, nor fellow women, never mind powerful feminist voices - a useful target for our anger.

Sometimes people use “purity politics” the way others use “perfect.” There’s a WIDE margin between having a problem with someone saying “think of the poor men!” when discussing an industry based on the rape of women and girls and purity politics.

The author is complaining that MM consistently misrepresents radical feminism; not calling for MM to adhere to some holy doctrine. Why do you think the article "monsters" MM?
