Professor charged with battery of anti-abortion protester: “I was ‘triggered’ into doing it”

March 26, 2014

My latest blog post for the Los Angeles Times:

But what’s interesting is — no, it’s not the fact that California taxpayers are underwriting a Department of Feminist Studies” at UCSB where [alleged batterer and vandal Mireille] Miller-Young is an associate professor teaching courses bearing such titles as “Sexualities” and “Sexual Cultures Special Topics.”

It’s Miller-Young’s excuse for her deed: that she was “triggered” by images in the [anti-abortion] protesters’ materials, which reportedly included graphic pictures of aborted fetuses. Here’s what the [investigating] officer said she told him:

“In essence, Miller-Young told me she felt ‘triggered’ by the images on the posters. Miller-Young stated that she had been walking through the Arbor to get back to South Hall. Miller-Young said she was approached by people who gave her literature about abortion. Miller-Young said that she found this literature and pictures disturbing. Miller-Young said that she found this material offensive because she teaches about women’s ‘reproductive rights’ and is pregnant.
