Many who have read this blog have seen me in the past argue with Donna M. Hughes. “The Professor” was the leading force behind the re-criminalization of prostitution in Rhode Island. Hughes hijacked the debate, publishing many misleading and reactionary articles in the Providence Journal editorial pages. She also published a review of “Happy Endings?” that was misleading (to be polite)
Today, we have a review of that review. May May has reviewed Donna Hughes’ review. You can read the full review here.

I found an essay on a British site by Penny Sociologist about the contradictions of women ‘choosing’ to do the exact things that support patriarchy and capitalism, so I’m posting a link here.
