I do not think it means what she thinks it means.
But I am sure that it does not mean “conclusively disproving an immoral defense of a fraudulent hunk of pseudoscience that an LGB(T) ‘literary’ clique attempted to bestow an award upon, either without reading or without caring about the indefensibility thereof.’
I bring this up because of the other event that happened in 2007 – namely The Dredge’s attempt to defend Michael Bailey’s conclusively – and repeatedly – disproven ‘science’ fraud (d/b/a The Man Who Would be Queen). I’ve always thought it more than a bit curious that that happened right as the trans community found itself having to deal with the fraud perpetrated against it by HRC president Joe Solmonese at Southern Comfort (and, of course, the ensuing ENDA debacle.)
Well, The Dredge is at it again.
So, Gay, Inc., must be up to no good off camera.
ENDA is dead for the duration of the Obama presidency (unlike in 2007 when trans people were thrown under the bus, from 2009-present its all LGBTs whose economic and social needs are not solved by gay marriage being thrown under the bus), so, that’s likely not what our attention is being diverted from.
Might the internet be currently being even more thoroughly scrubbed of any residue of the leaked internal report which proved just how toxic the transmisogyny was at HRC even under Chad Griffin, who was at least able to give what seemed, at least on the surface, to be a heartfelt speech at Southern Comfort in 2014 (begging a question never, of course, asked by gay media: How bad must it have been under Solmonese? Or Birch?)? Perhaps the two of the oodles of trans people whose employment at HRC were trumpeted by Griffin last year – but who are no longer working there – know.

Star Scholar Resigns From Northwestern, Saying It Doesn’t Respect Academic Freedom
Alice Dreger doesn’t usually pull punches. So it’s no surprise that her resignation letter is more, shall we say, direct than the average two weeks’ notice.
Ms. Dreger resigned this week from Northwestern University, where she was a clinical professor of medical humanities and bioethics, a nontenured gig she’d had for the past decade.
Which, based on her ongoing, obnoxious, fact-averse defense of the indefensible (read: Michael Bailey) was a decade too long.
