"Misattributed" Quote[edit]

It is true that Dworkin never said "Heterosexual intercourse is the pure, formalized expression of contempt for women’s bodies." However, in her 1987 book Intercourse she wrote "Intercourse is the pure, sterile, formal expression of men's contempt for women". Will fix if no one objects. --Dust diamond 22:24, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Great idea, if you have the page number. And, if you would update the explanation into a note about the misattribution so that people can see what happens with what she said (preserving most of what the explanation says now), that would be informative. Thank you for doing the research. Nick Levinson 11:09, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
