Yesterday an article was published on this site by titled, “A counter-view of Emma Watson’s message to the UN: Intelligence trumps sex”
I have removed it from this website.
I want to issue all AVFM readers a sincere apology for the content of that article (which ran specifically counter to every aspect of our mission and values). I also need to make some things clear.
One, the editorial staff, who work with amazing dedication, is not to blame for this mistake. I am. Ultimately there is no denying that I am responsible for everything that gets posted to this website.
Two, this is not the Good Men Project. We don’t just take down articles with no explanation depending on which way the wind is blowing. I am personally very stubborn about standing behind content and consider removing an article a very serious decision. I also think readers should be advised of those decisions.
With this particular piece I had not read it before it was published and was not aware of the problem till there was a flare-up in the comments. I do not offer that as an excuse, but rather a learning experience for which I pledge to find a remedy.
Finally, removing this piece is not intended as a personal affront to Mr. Kinnison. I do not know him personally and have no quarrel with the man.
Again, my sincere apologies to all for dropping a very important ball. I will work diligently to make certain it does not happen again.
