Ellie Slee, a Huffington Post contributor, recently won our ‘Whiny Woman of the Month’ award in part due to her refusal to retract a misleading statement about J4MB – that we refer to women as ‘gestational incubators’. We never have done so, we don’t now, and we never would. We politely pointed out to her that her statement was factually untrue, asked her to retract it, and she refused to do so. We’ve emailed the legal team at the Huffington Post saying that if the statement isn’t publicly retracted, we’ll be taking legal advice on the matter.
Ms Slee is evidently keen to carry on in the same vein. In a recent ‘tweet’ she referred to me as a ‘rape denier’. A copy of the sequence in which her claim appeared:
I’ve asked Ms Slee (through her Twitter stream) for evidence to back up her outrageous and libellous claim, but given that no such evidence exists, we’ll be taking legal advice over this too – unless she both retracts the statement and makes a full public apology in a form of words acceptable to us by 6 January, emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and communicated to her Twitter followers (unaltered) in a ‘tweet’.
