Mike Adams

Hi. My name is Mike Adams and I am a public sociologist. That means I do more than just teach sociology. I also apply my knowledge to real problems in the real world for the benefit of real people. Today, I am dedicating my column to those who are about to send their daughters off to college. Consider the following exchange before you allow your daughter to study Humanities at any institution of higher learning:

Dr. Adams, You're a prick with a complete lack of understanding of other human beings.

Rachel.

Rachel you just don't understand me!

Mike Adams

You are the laughing stock of the internet. Good luck with your shitty life and your Daddy issues. Go to http://community.livejournal.com.

Rachel.

Gosh, Rachel, that's terrible. You seem like such a happy bunch of people. And smart, too.

Mike Adams

I’m laughing out loud at you taking the time to continually reply to these e-mails. For once, I'm able to get a hold of a professor!

Rachel

Well, see, we agree on something. Professors are generally lazy. Especially those with tenure.

Mike

You and I agreeing on something would mean that there are occasionally women who have thought processes equal to men. Gasp.

Rachel

Why is that so strange to you?

Mike

Because your article argues the opposite; that women don't think things through deep enough. Then you have to come riding in on your white horse to explain to them how the world works, and that whores should continue to be arrested for providing a service, while the purveyors of said service are not held responsible. You know, just like drugs.

I don't know where your skewed world view comes from, but maybe you should talk to some of the girls in your classes and see how they feel about your broad generalizations and condescending attitude towards a culture you clearly know nothing about.

Rachel

But I don't believe that prostitutes should be arrested and "Johns" set free. You did not think the article through deep enough. You just reacted emotionally without considering the point, which, clearly, was not to let "Johns" off the hook.

Are you in college?

Mike
