Wasn’t Andrea Dworkin Extreme?

I ask Robert Jensen: 

One follow-up. I always thought Andrea a nutter. Wasn’t she extreme? >Didn’t she equate all heterosexual intercourse with rape? Do you >agree with that?

No, Andrea never said or wrote that. It’s a common distortion of her argument in the book Intercourse. Andrea was not a “nutter.” She was one of the most important writers of the last half of the 20th century, in my opinion.
