Dear Richard Dawkins,

If you haven't already, you MUST read some of the work of the philosopher Christina Hoff Sommers. I recommend her classic "Who Stole Feminism?" It provides mounds of information concerning neo-feminist depravity and disregard for the truth -- not to mention their formidable political power, which goes well beyond the academy. If you haven't the time for the book, here is an excellent lecture by her on the same subject.

Funny that you bring this subject up, because recently someone was verbally asaulted on Pharyngula (called a "fuckwit" and a "fuckbucket") merely for referring to Sommers (a respected scholar) and Steven Pinker (an even more respected scholar).

You ought to watch who your allies are, Richard, because it's clear that many atheists who escape traditional religion haven't managed to break free from the shackles of secular religion, which is often just as dangerous.
