Andrea Dworkin is dead

Susie Bright on the late Andrea Dworkin.

The most interesting omission from the googlism is "Andrea Dworkin is wrong", which was a popular t-shirt slogan among American bisexual women back in the late 80s/early 90s.

I'm struck by the difference in my reaction to her death with the reaction to, say, David English or Ronald Reagan's death, where there was a part of me sad they hadn't suffered more.

All of them were often Wrong - English's journalistic career can be summed up with his "Gay Gene Abortion Hope" headline while he was editor of the evil Daily Mail.

It's probably because, unlike them, she never had power.

Thank ghod.
