Brown Shirts Against “Gendered Violence”

Our Students are Our Future

Our Students are Our Future

“If this is feminism, it’s feminism hijacked by melodrama . . .”

Even the liberals and feminists are beginning to fear the campus brown shirts.

The feminism I identified with as a student stressed independence and resilience. In the intervening years, the climate of sanctimony about student vulnerability has grown too thick to penetrate; no one dares question it lest you’re labeled antifeminist. . . The new codes sweeping American campuses aren’t just a striking abridgment of everyone’s freedom, they’re also intellectually embarrassing. Sexual paranoia reigns; students are trauma cases waiting to happen. If you wanted to produce a pacified, cowering citizenry, this would be the method. And in that sense, we’re all the victims.

The dear feminist professor is now being “denounced” and a petition is calling for her official sanction due to “the violence expressed by Kipnis’ message.”

Personally, I hope they all kill each other, but even the Lefty rag “The Nation” is saying the gender feminists on campus are more than a bit nuts, and are scary, is newsworthy.

    Actually, Laura Kipnis’ essay made a lot of sense. I am so very, very tired of feminists proclaiming that 1) women are so much better than men and 2) women are the eternal victims. Make up your minds, dear ladies. And, until then, back off your hysterical cries of “rape culture”.

    ‘Consider one example: in the university system (and many would argue in the legal system as well), when a charge of sexual harassment is leveled, the burden of proof is shifted to the accused. The accused is guilty until proven innocent. Sometimes the accusations are based on nothing more than politely questioning a feminist position. In one case, a markedly over-weight professor responded to a taunt shouted-out in class by a student who commented on the extreme ‘size’ of his chest: he observed that she had no such problem. As a result of the witch hunt that followed, the professor committed suicide. The university’s main concern seemed to be that his death would discourage other similarly abused women from “speaking out.”
