Andrea Dworkin has died

Not much to say about this one. I used to pass her followers out on 6th Ave. in NYC. They'd have the most horrendous photo's side by side with silly ones from good & bad porn on display for the world to see. I never quite understood the argument but then again, I've got one of those pesky 'Y' chromosomes. BTW, Dworkin's most famous statement is a myth. She never said that male sex was an act of rape. What she did say was that penetration was an act of dominance. It's almost as bad because, let's face it, we're built to work that way, but it isn't the same.
Interesting point from the article that if you put out factually bad information then the rest of your message can get lost in the debate about that bad information. Something that way too many people involved with politics have yet to learn.
