PCU: Civility in the Classroom Promotes "White Racial Power"

"I think John is kind of dumb, and is also an asshole. The kind who drinks too much sangria on Fridays,vomits all over the wall instead of the toilet, and then passes out in the shower.
"Coincidentally that is also what I think of your argument, if that is what you want to call it, Bianca. Its nothing but derp all the way down."

Wasn't life better with civility? It is like people are actively trying to destroy the country they live in - because Balkanization has worked out so well every else for the ideals they supposedly uphold.

"Rudrick told Campus Reform by email that he wrote the article in the spirit of his 'continued service to Cthulu,' but did not respond to follow up inquiries."

Taking this at face value, it really explains a lot. The Illuminatus! Trilogy was fiction, not praxis.

Of course, different social/cultural milieux do generate different norms of what counts as offensive. That's kind of an important part of what makes any different such milieux different. But that just makes it all the more jaw-dropping that these same people, when it comes to the expression of sexual interest, have zero tolerance for eg a non-bourgeois US black male observing anything less than the kinds of norm of civility that prevail in Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility.

It is interesting in this connection that a disproportionate number of the men indicted and punished under Title IX for harassment and/or assault seem to have been black. (There is an especially heartbreaking / grotesque case mentioned in the Kipnis book.)

Campus sexual assault activists have been mostly deafeningly silent on this issue, which was raised in a highly effective way by Janet Halley, Jeannie Suk Gerson and others. But on the few occasions they have been forced to address it, the resort to fallacies and smears in lieu of argument has been even more conspicuous than usual. It's remarkable how, when stark contradictions are revealed in an ideologue's story, the response tends pronouncedly toward the hysterical.
