During the controversy I described in Condemning Censorship, Even of Werewolves one of the parties characterized me as “nuts and in decline.”.
Here is part of what I learned: There comes a point in the development of every reform movement at which it has to kill the founder.
Yes, this means that more than a decade ago I knew that the day would likely come when significant portions of the movement would dismiss me as a loon, or worse. I accepted that consequence with my eyes open. I view it as normal, healthy, and even necessary that this be so.
I did not do what I did for anyone’s approval; I did it because it was right.
