LOLI obsolutley Love & I mean LOVE the fact that this woman is a "professor of anthropology and gender and women's and sexuality studies at UI"
If there is a more ill-liberal, authoritarian, anti-intellectual, foulmouthed & minded troupe at any university it has to be the feminists.
These old ideolgical war hoarses are so bound up in their dying ideology that the very concept of dissent (or humor) is simply lost on them.
Way back in the day, back in my College days.
Prof. W-Sociology/Psychology Prof chastized me in the class. I had the timerity to raise my hand regarding discipline and childhood. Long story short-my 1st born never got so much as a smack on the hand till age 3. I could NOT keep him out of the road. We go outside and this kid made a B-line for the road. I was there (constantly) I put him in one of those harnesses. I even attached the harness to a weight. Finally, I had it. It was either this kid was gonna learn to stay out of the road or be dead. So, it took two times of spanking his butt and then it was done. He didn't go in the road anymore.
Now, Prof. W, was going to report me for Child Abuse. After being thoroughly chastized, I asked HER what I should have done.
(This is a quote, because I remember it verbatim all the way down to the accent) "You should firmly bump the child against a car and show him a dead squirrel in the street. Make sure you put his face close to the dead animal".
How's that for you???
After I pulled my lower jaw up from the desk, I asked her one question. "Prof. W. do YOU have any kids"?
Nope-she did not.
"So, I'm supposed to bang my kid against a car and show him squirrel guts and that will keep him out of the road?"
Thank God, that class did not rely on essay points...she would have flunked me.
