Enough. I think of myself as a free speech extremist. But your right to free speech isn't a license to trespass or vandalize. We're past the point of civil discourse. These spoiled self-indulgent brats need to start being arrested and prosecuted.

"The World of the Social Justice Warrior" Chapter MMMDCCLXXVI

Maybe I'm jaded, but I've seen it too often to be surprised any more. Wake me when an Ivy League university actually takes a stand against that sort of thing.

Based on her CV, I'd say that this is the revolution eating its own.

I'd settle for a Tier 3.

Tier 3 schools have fewer incidents like this, because these incidents are not just about ideology but also about spoiled upbringings. And kids who don't have jobs.

The rape allegations in the Buzzfeed article linked from H&R are pretty awful. The student alleges two violent rapes by an unknown assailant, one of which involved penetration with a hairbrush, scissors and a razor. And the Title IX people didn't care?

Columbia is a big place but not quite that big... Dunno. Could be a lot of explanations.

The Hit & Run Over subforum is for us to link to H&R articles to discuss without having to be in the H&R comments section.

As distinct from the H&R-was-better-under-Postrel thread which is for meta-discussion of H&R and its commenters.

I'm an advocate of more topics even though I'm terrible at practicing what I preach.

We could start a thread about people like Kolohe who are reluctant to start threads.

We have at least two threads about how SJW college kids will totes destroy the world..

Mind, I was violently raped and the school did nothing is a world of difference from the usual trigger of being painfully disagreed with.
