    Fem. Studies Prof Accused of Assaulting Teen Prolife Demonstrator[W:12, 85, 357]

    From The College Fix:

    SANTA BARBARA – A department of feminist studies professor has been accused of going berserk after coming across a campus prolife demonstration that used extremely graphic displays, leading a small mob of students to chant “tear down the sign” before grabbing one of the signs, storming off with it, then allegedly engaging in an altercation with a 16-year-old prolife protestor who had followed the educator to retrieve it. Feminist Studies Professor Accused of Assaulting Teenage Prolife Demonstrator

    According to the article, some UCSB students are upset that "groups [of protestors] are threatening the well-being of students, yet nothing is being done. We should not feel unsafe on our own campus. These acts of shaming and violence are beyond unacceptable, and in no case have these groups warned the student body before showing such images on campus.”

    I am very much opposed to the display of graphic images--they're gratuitous, and those happening to walk past the photo/poster displays may find them shocking. Children definitely shouldn't be exposed to them. Perhaps some compromise can be reached, one through which the protestors don't put these horrific images on public display. But I don't believe for even a second that the complaining UCSB students feel unsafe on their own campus. What hanky-clutching crap.

    As for the prof, she appears to be hoist by her own irrational behavior.

    This will explain much of the problem. Our tax dollars at work:

    "The professor at the heart of the controversy is Mireille Miller-Young, an associate professor whose area of emphasis is black cultural studies, pornography and sex work, according to her web page."

    I don't know what kind of pictures they used, but perhaps they should use more like this one:

    Sometimes 'graphic' is the only way to reach these ladies especially after being thoroughly brainwashed by the feminist profs.

    IIRC these pro-life type demos happen on a regular basis across the country. First time I've heard of any violence or freaking out going on.

    No, I can't agree. I remember ten+ years ago the California controversy about graphic billboards. There really are folks with delicate sensibilities, and you don't want someone to be sickened or so upset that he/she has a heart attack.

    And you surely don't little kids to be exposed to graphic images. And that's the thing--some college students are married and walk all over campuses with their kids.

    Practically speaking, it's not a sound rhetorical strategy either. You may so mightily offend those who are ambivalent that you will dissuade them from seeing your POV.

    Dang, as a Black woman, she should be appalled at the number of Black abortions in this country, telling her young students about the horror.

    Hoist on her own petard. Want to bet this professor has liberally used her right to protest on college campus many times? Also, chances are good she's done her own share of offensive sloganing and signage. Assault charges are no joke and she's on the hook for them, just as she would scream bloody murder if the shoe were on the other foot and her attacker had balked at the charges.

    Yeah...if only she had a white guy like you educating her.

    I understand your POV but, I would like to see some statistics that show how these demos affect these young women. There's quite a bit more propaganda coming from the pro-choice side that elicits violence and vandalism as a way to counter protest.
