Delusions of Persecution: #TrigglyPuff’s Feminist Friend Jennie Chenkin Is Crazy

  When an event last week hosted by College Republicans at the University of Massachusetts was disrupted by a Hampshire College student named Cora Segal (see “What #TrigglyPuff Means”), the point-and-laugh reaction by conservatives was predictable.
