War on Women

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I haven't seen what they're proposing. Does "pay their own" exclude use of campaign funds, too? How about Employment Practices Liability Insurance? That's one of those things that sounds good in theory, but unless somebody's putting some serious thought and analysis to how it would work, what's included, what's excluded, etc., it's going to be a mess.

I have not sent this yet, what do y'all think?

Dear Professor Simona Sharoni,

Re:
He Makes a Joke. She Isn’t Laughing: ‘Lingerie’ Comment in Elevator Leads to Uproar Among Scholars.
https://www.chronicle.com/article/he-ma ... n-t/243350

A Male Professor Told a Female Professor a Stupid Joke. Now He Faces Disciplinary Charges.
"A horrifying and chilling example of political correctness."
https://reason.com/blog/2018/05/08/joke ... ow-sharoni

With your frivolous complaint you have:

Declared that you are an idiot. It does not diminish women in the slightest to suggest that men shop for women’s lingerie;
Declared that women like you are utterly humorless;
Diminished those women that are the victims of real abuse;
Brought shame upon Merrimack College and its Women’s and Gender Studies Department;
Declared that women are incapable of fighting their own battles and must run shrieking for help over the most minor of supposed slights;
Declared that people should suffer professional consequences over the most minor of supposed slights.

Don't get me wrong, I'm no angry male threatened by feminists. As an ER RN, I have a career of caring for abused women while working in a majority-women, usually women-led profession. As a progressive activist, I have decades of working in solidarity with women and their (our) causes at every opportunity.

I am not threatened a bit by rational, assertive women as I'm sure that you usually are. However, I am depressed when a fight I've contributed so much to is made a mockery of from within.

Please withdraw your complaint, communicate whatever you wish to Professor Richard Ned Lebow privately, and let the whole silly matter drop whatever his response is.

Then, please return to your very important educating and I assume activism.

Sincerely,
(Vrede too)

Thanks (Vrede too). You are right on every point. The real idiocy is the ISA which has censured me because of this ridiculous complaint.

Best,

Tell HHS: Reject the abortion gag rule!
Tell HHS Secretary Alex Azar:
"Reject gag rules for Title X providers."
