College feminists run out of frat houses to hassle so they go after philosophy professors

April 24, 2014

My latest blog post for the Los Angeles Times:

You might think philosophy profs are tweedy, elbow-patched pipe smokers who spend most of their time poring over “Kritik der reinen Vernunft” or debating whether it would be ethically OK to throw a fat man in front of a runaway trolley so as to save five other lives. You would be wrong.

According to a January report from the American Philosophical Assn.’s Committee on the Status of Women, the philosophy department at the University of Colorado Boulder is a hotbed of “unacceptable sexual harassment, inappropriate sexualized behavior and divisive uncivil behavior.”

It’s hard to figure out exactly what the male philosophers at Boulder were actually doing in the way of “inappropriate sexualized behavior” because the committee, which seemed to have spent a full year (plus $25,000 of Boulder’s money) on this witch hunt, is keeping that under wraps.

    It would be quite impossible for the “American Philosophical Assn.’s Committee on the Status of Women” to reach any other conclusion than that the philosophy department at the University of Colorado Boulder is a hotbed of “unacceptable sexual harassment, inappropriate sexualized behavior and divisive uncivil behavior.”

    If the Committee did not discover the likes of this on a regular basis, there would be no Committee. Position appointments, book deals, speaking engagements, peer-review support, tenure… all are at stake here, and the Committee is going to do what’s right for the careers of the members of the Committee.

    Feminism is a culture of gender hatred.
