In response to a letter calling for censorship of Sheila Jeffreys’ next book, Women For Academic Freedom issued a letter to Dallas Denny and Jamison Green condemning their strong-arm silencing tactics.
“In researching this situation we have found a deeply disturbing pattern of lies and manipulations coupled with threats and other unsavory tactics, all of which are documented, some even on video. As academics, as researchers and as writers we assert that this tyranny carries us right back to McCarthyism. The letter, a prodigious example of arrogance and bullshit sounded a warning and rallied us from across the curriculum. We recognize the telltale signs of a dangerous movement that feigns legitimacy in postmodern pseudoscience and meaningless jargon,” the group wrote.
