Please help an innocent man clear his name

This is a story I’ve become aware of in recent weeks. I have no connection with the people involved, but it’s a matter of justice on a subject I feel strongly about, so here goes.

Last year, Karen Stollznow, an American skeptic activist, accused her fellow skeptic activist and former boyfriend Ben Radford of stalking, sexually harassing and sexually assaulting her since they broke up in 2009. Supported by the Identity Politics faction of the skeptic movement, she has severely damaged his reputation and his ability to earn a living. Radford has issued legal proceedings against her for defamation and fraud.

After severely messing him about and wasting what little money he had to spend on legal fees by negotiating a retraction of her allegations which she never intended to stand by, Stollznow has started a crowdfunding campaign for her legal defence, and by appealing to the Damsel in Distress reflex has raised nearly $60,000.

But Radford has put his evidence on a website, including a series of emails which conclusively show that Stollznow has lied about when they broke up, which if them instigated that breakup, which wanted to continue seeing each other, and how they have behaved since. Most significantly, they show that that Stollznow doctored emails, changing the dates on messages sent while they were still seeing each other to make it look like they were sent several years later. Radford has had the dates verified by a forensic IT specialist, and also has the replies that put the emails in context.

He has the documentation to prove it’s a frame-up. But he’s short of cash. Please read the evidence on Radford’s website, and then go and donate to his legal fund, and share this information with anybody you know.

The Comics Journal reviews The Cattle Raid of Cooley alongside About a Bull

Shaenon Garrity, The Comics Journal‘s webcomic specialist, has written a very nice review of The Cattle Raid of Cooley, alongside another webcomic adapting the same story, MK Reed’s About a Bull. I’ve often said that the Táin is big enough, gnarled enough and complicated enough to stand multiple interpretations, and Shaenon agrees, saying “In different hands, the same material can be a stark historical novel about bromantic battles between men or a sly tragicomedy about women asserting their power.” Her review is perceptive, and reassures me that a lot of what I’m trying to do is working.

You really should look at About a Bull, by the way. MK’s version is way funnier than mine, and the variety in the art – aside from MK’s own storybook style on the main story, flashbacks are drawn by different artists – is a nice interpretation given how patchwork and variable in style the original text is. She covers some of the same ground as I have, but in different ways, and she includes stories I haven’t. And as mine is (slowly) approaching a conclusion, hers is just getting started – four chapters in, they haven’t left Cruachan and Cú Chulainn has yet to make an appearance, so it’s set to run for a good while yet.
