In an interview today on Fresh Air, Kinsey director Bill Condon responds to a question about Kinsey's most extreme critics by reading a paragraph of my New Yorker article. "That’s the level that you’re dealing with, the level of reality," Condon says after reading Judith Reisman's opinions on homosexuality. "It’s a little frustrating because you’re not dealing on a rational level with these people."
By the way, Reisman objected when the fact checker called to ask her, Is it correct to say you believe X and Y? "No, that's not something I believe," she said. "It's a fact."
Condon doesn't mention my name, of course, but he'd have pronounced it wrong anyway. (It's RAY-dosh, if you're wondering.)
Update: Go figure...

Well, you did a pretty fair job at that!
Now, if you can ever shame a mainstream television station into broadcasting the Yorkshire Television documentary of "Secret History: Kinsey's Paedophiles," you will deserve the Nobel prize. All of England saw it in 1998.
Best, and thanks for trying.
Personally, I'd rather have an Abstie than a Nobel.
Just in case anyone else is confused, let me be clear. Reisman's charges against Kinsey (and those in the "documentary" she hypes) are complete and total bullshit.
