BREAKING: Anti-Male Georgetown
University Professor Now on Leave

— Oct. 5, 2018

Professor Fair is a textbook example of Herbert Marcuse‘s 1965 “progressive tolerance” (i.e., intolerance to conservatism) in action. Because the Left considers opposition to its ideology to be evil, leftists like Professor Fair believe they are justified in fighting their opponents “by any means necessary.” The Left recognizes no law or social norms that restrain them in attacking their chosen enemies.

PJMedia’s Toni Airaksinen reports the latest:

The Georgetown University professor who called for the “miserable deaths” of GOP senators admitted Thursday to PJ Media that she runs a “doxxing” blog where she posts the names, phone numbers, and addresses of people who send her rude emails.
The blog — “Sh*tMenSay” on Tumblr — was launched by Professor Christine Fair in January 2017. First, she began by posting screenshots of the “hate mail” she was sent by Facebook and email, typically only including names and people’s email addresses.
But as early as May 2017, Fair changed course. Instead of simply screenshotting the person’s email or Facebook message, Fair appears to have subscribed to a service that would help her figure out where these people exactly live.
PJ Media reviewed hundreds of posts (yes, hundreds) on “ShitMenSay” and identified 11 accounts of full-on doxxing, for which home addresses, phone numbers, photos, aliases, and occasionally work phone numbers and other family members were made public.
“When will these male trolls learn?” she wrote on September 28.
“I do research for a living. Locating their residences (these folks live in a town in [redacted] near an elementary school on [redacted] St.), their wives, employers, etc. is mental sport for me,” wrote Fair in one doxxing post.
“I will be notifying his current and past employer as well as his wife,” she wrote on a separate doxxing post. (PJ Media is not linking or screenshotting any of these posts due to privacy concerns for the victims of her blog.)
While Fair justifies her doxxing by calling it “accountability” for “harassment,” the emails that she received are garden-variety hate mail, and wouldn’t in any case rise to an illegal level of harassment. . . .

You can read the whole thing at PJMedia.

Let me say that I am against “hate mail,” whoever does it, on whatever side, and I am against “harassment” generally. On those occasions when I feel a need to express my indignation to someone via email, my language tends to be very formal, like a gentleman taking notice of an offense to his honor and challenging the offender to “pistols at dawn.” When a Southerner makes a point of calling you “sir” (“Pardon me, sir, if I have mistaken your intent in impugning my integrity …”) you know you’ve pissed him off bad. Furthermore, when you are communicating to a journalist or academic or anyone else who considers themselves an “intellectual,” it is important to avoid crude insults, sloppy grammar or misspellings. You don’t want to communicate in such a way as to confirm their opinion of you as an ignorant bigot. Remember: Always take the high road when responding to deranged totalitarian moonbats.

“What is best in life? To crush your enemies. See them driven before you. And to hear the lamentations of their women.”
