DeVos Sued Over New Title IX Rules That Make It 'Easier for Schools to Sweep Sexual Violence Under the Rug'

Betsy, to give her the benefit of the doubt on which I gag, must suffer from some sort of Stockholm Syndrome from her Fundie upbringing. Nothing else comes to mind that explains her crassness in this matter, unless it is pure fealty to mammon, which is my true suspicion absent any benefit of doubt and thereby resolving my gag reflex. I feel better now. May her scrawny skeleton crack upon her first dance with Satan.


Sued should be Shot - "over everything she has done to make it easier to destroy the public education.

Ugh, can she just get Corona and die already?

My mom and Grandma were public school teachers, and one of my aunts was a college professor.

We need to stop the stupid standardized test bs and fully fund the public schools by which I mean pay the actual teachers a decent goddamn salary.

Actually, in this she’s saving the academy which has been consuming itself by use of politically motivated sexual “harassment” show trials. The thing has completely gone mad. This and cancelling the TPP, I can completely get behind.

A good education on this is to have a look at what happened to the feminist Laura Kipnis. Here is her article in the Chronicle of Higher Education, “My Title IX Inquisition”

Here book, “Unwanted Advances: Sexual Paranoia Comes to Campus” describes even more Title IX attacks used against her because she voiced her ideas.

Another author that is excellent on this is the feminist Daphni Pathai, “Heterophobia: Sexual Harassment and the Future of Feminism”
and “Professing Feminism: Education and Indoctrination in Women’s Studies” (make sure to get the Expanded Edition, where a number of feminist scholars describe their horror at what has happened to the field):

John Fekete has an incomparably excellent work on the subject, spending a great deal of time on pseudo-liberatory feminists’ statistical manipulations, in his “Moral Panic: Biopolitics Rising”
