I want to thank you for writing to express interest in suing your feminist boss for sexual harassment. Before you move forward with a lawsuit, I want you to consider another case that happened just recently in another department on your campus.
A male professor who was receiving unwanted attention from a female student did the right thing and reported it to his Chairwoman – who happens to be a feminist. The feminist did the right thing by calling the woman and telling her to cease all efforts to contact the professor. Although the professor was no longer teaching the student it was simply inappropriate of her to call him repeatedly on his personal phone line.
Fortunately, the phone call worked and the student complied with the Chairwoman’s request. That should have been the end of the matter. But it wasn’t.
A week later when the problem had already been solved the assertive feminist – who stands about five feet tall – entered the professor’s office to ask some follow-up questions about the incident involving the female student. Among them, she asked whether the male professor said anything that might have caused the woman to contact him. Questions included “Did you talk about your recent separation?” and “Did you say that you were ready to start dating again?” She concluded with this comment: “Because if you were talking about your personal life in class that would not have been good.”
Three rather obvious points should be made here:
1. The little feminist’s comments were completely inappropriate because they amount to blaming the victim, which, according to feminism, is immoral. Imagine this were a female professor who was being contacted inappropriately by a male student. No feminist would accept a line of questioning that put the blame on the woman. Imagine the following coming from a Chairman, not Chairwoman: “Did you wear a short skirt that caused the man to call you at home? Were your boobs covered in class at all times?”
2. There simply is no rule that prohibits professors from discussing their personal lives in class. A feminist in the political science department at your school once gave a lecture blasting her father for having an affair and leaving her mother after nearly forty years of marriage. So marital break-ups are obviously not forbidden topics. Another professor, this time in English, famously wrote a book chapter talking about losing her virginity. She assigned it to her classes. It included graphic sexual content far more revealing than the phrase, “I’m dating again.”
