As Aleister wrote previously, Christina Hoff Summers received an… interesting response when she spoke at Georgetown Thursday night.

Ms. Sommers is the Factual Feminist at the American Enterprise Institute.

In the Oberlin Review radical feminists responded to Sommers’ upcoming speech with an OpEd, “A Love Letter to Themselves.” In this love letter, they accuse Sommers of being a “rape denialist” and proceeded to list her “offenses” to feminism.

The letter concluded:

So let’s engage in some radical, beautiful community care, support and love. Let’s make space for everyone to engage at whichever level they want/need. Let’s come through for each other, both now and in the future. Trauma is an experience that threatens a person’s bodily, spiritual and emotional integrity. The psychological, emotional and somatic impacts extend beyond the experience of trauma. Healing is a process that looks different for each person. Let’s make space to care for all experiences of trauma and to respect those we care for. Let’s focus our energy on taking care of each other and ourselves. Let’s make her talk irrelevant in the face of our love, passion and power.

The event’s Facebook page is hilarious. It would seem not everyone at Oberlin College believes Mr. Sommers to be a feminine anathema.

So how is Oberlin College taking Ms. Sommers’ speech? At least for the radical feminists, not well.

This must have hit them hard – Heresy:

UPDATE: How did Sommers react to all this? Quite well:
