A little bit more than twenty four hours ago, Renegade Evolution posted an excellent piece on Emotional Terrorism. It turned out that her post was to be prophetic.
Donna Hughes is an academic out of Rhode Island. She campaigns tirelessly for the criminalization of prostitution in her state. Recently she has co-authored a letter in which she mounts an ad hominem attack of Elizabeth Wood from Sex in the public Square. As an academic, Hughes should know better than to make personal attacks on people who disagree with her point of view. The word unprofessional comes to mind. If the attack on Ms. Wood was a one off thing, the event could be written off as someone having a bad day. However, this type of behavior seems to be a modus operandi for Hughes.
Some of Hughes better known exploits include priceless items such as:
“Then a man reeking of cigarette smoke and other odors came forward”
“Then a tattooed woman, calling herself a “sexologist and sex educator,” spoke against the bill. She is also a reporter for a prostitutes’ magazine called $pread. (I couldn’t make this stuff up!)”
Neither can I … Here’s the link.
I cannot imagine how a person who calls herself a professional can stoop to personal insults rather than sticking to her talking points.
So now Hughes goes after Elizabeth.
Accusing Elizabeth of “crossing the line” into sex offence?
Devoting an entire paragraph to Elizabeth trying skinny dipping?
OMG DONNA!!! YOU ARE RIGHT! IF PEOPLE WERE MEANT TO BE NAKED THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN BORN THAT WAY!!! (frakin’ prude!)
Sadly, I can only come to one conclusion regarding Donna Hughes.
She is just one more batshit crazy Radfem that should not be taken seriously.
Far better writers than I have picked up on this. Please follow the links below for more thoughts.
