My daughter read it and it looks like I'm going to be seeing the movie tonight. Pray 4 me.

Oh, did I mention the authoress is a fundamentalist Christian and that the book is seething with anti-intellectualism? The villians are a clan of geniuses (it's still politically correct, though; they're a band of geniuses composed of blond women and minorities).

Theft, assault, and vandalism charges filed against UC Santa Barbara professor

For grabbing an abortion protestor's sign and running off with it, then preventing them from following her.

In essence, Miller-Young told me that she felt “triggered” by the images on the posters.

....

Miller-Young said that her actions today were in defense of her students and her own safety.

Part of the below is a transcript of the investigating officer.

Quote:
Joan said she called 9-1-1 and Thrin started filming, and that the pair followed Miller-Young and two of her students … into nearby South Hall. As Miller-Young and the students boarded an elevator, Joan said that Thrin repeatedly blocked the door with her hand and foot and that Miller-Young continually pushed her back. Miller-Young then exited the elevator and tried to yank Thrin away from the door while the students attempted to take her smartphone. “As Thrin tried to get away, the professor’s fingernails left bloody scratches on her arms,” Joan claimed.

snip

I asked Miller-Young if she knew the students who had been with her (the students I had seen in the video). Miller-Young said that she was under the impression that I had already spoke to one of the students (Ito). Miller-Young refused to provide me with the unidentified student’s name, stating that she was not comfortable with it.

I asked Miller-Young if she felt anything wrong had happened this afternoon...Miller-Young went on to say that she was not sure what an acceptable and legal response to hate speech would be.

snip

Miller-Young also suggested that the group had violated her rights. I asked Miller-Young what right the group had violated. Miller-Young responded, “My personal right to go to work and not be in harm.”

Miller-Young elaborated that one of the reasons she had felt so alarmed by this imagery is because she is about to have the test for Down Syndrome. Miller-Young said. “I work here, why do they get to intervene in that?”

I explained to Miller-Young that vandalism, battery and robbery had occurred. I also told Miller-Young that individuals involved in this case desired prosecution.

She's the victim. Take your penis-centric view of justice elsewhere.

How do people like that take themselves seriously? I mean, I get that the pictures are gross, and that they could piss a person off, but why can't she just say, "you know what? I saw them, it was already a bad day, and I just lost my shit?" Instead, she has to spin a ridiculous yarn about how she was victimized by the yucky pictures in someone else's free expression.

How can a person be so lacking in perspective that they don't see how absurd that type of behavior is?

She's an ugly fatso, if she doesn't complain then she'll just be part of the zeitgeist at Walmart.

Look at the list of shit she gets paid to "study." Is it some kind of surprise that she lacks perspective?

Study? You can't study garbage for more than ten fifteen minutes tops.

Oh, absolutely. When you're constantly being victimized, every day is serious business.

Definitely not surprising that she lacks perspective, but I still don't understand how someone gets to that point. I guess I can't fathom being that self-unaware.

My initial response was agreement but then I considered that the last couple of decades of her life have involved being indoctrinated and indoctrinating others into a very intense, non-standard world view and she might honestly think it was not only acceptable but the "moral" thing to do. When you're on the right side of history you realize you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet.

What is "dispora", btw? Is that a new English word or can she not spell one of the key words in her "field of study"?

This is her cv on her university's website so there's more to this than playing spelling police, obviously.

I might be interested in viewing this dissertation of the history of black women in porn, though.
