It certainly surprised me. This bit of news was related to me by Teanne Necaise when she called to tell me about the debate she and Betty Barnes had with members of H.O.W. on radio station KILT recently. It seems that H.O.W. stands for "Happiness of Women" and their members are strongly opposed to the Equal Rights Amendment. In fact, they insisted that supporters of the ERA are part of a communist plot. The main piece of evidence they brought to the debate was the April issue of the BROADSIDE. One of the H.O.W. members held up gingerly, between thumb and forefinger, a copy of the last issue and wanted to know why NOW was openly endorsing streaking. Teanne patiently tried to tell them that the streaking piece (pardon the pun) was an editorial comment made by the weird editor and was not an official statement of NOW policy. I took great pains to point out in that editorial that the feminist streak was my idea and was not sponsored by NOW, so I can only assume that H.O.W. members have poor reading skills. Undaunted, they then pointed with horror to the poem by Carolyn Nichols. It seems they were offended by Carolyn's use of two "four-letter words" (one a common expression for excrement, the other a common expression for intercourse) as evidence of our creeping moral degeneracy. So not only do they have poor reading skills, but H.O.W. members apparently neither shit nor fuck, which no doubt accounts for their bad temper.
