  • Gender studies prof rips down 9/11 memorial posters

    The title says it all...

    A group of students posted some posters to remember the terrorist attacks on the the 9/11. A purple haired woman, who is a professor of Gender Studies, came around tearing the posters down.

    Here a video of the incident where Margot Lovett is seeing tearing down the posters and then explaining to the students that they can only display their memorial in a "free speech zone" after they get permission to do so:

    Margot Lovett is a professor of gender studies and the director of the College History Department.

    This Professor sent a controversial e-mail 2 days after the terrorist attacks, where she claims that the attacks are basically a desperate response of the people US have being oppressing for so many years.

    For this reason, it is suspected that her tearing down of the 9/11 memorial have more to do with her personal ideas about the attacks and not with enforcing the "free speech zones" rules on campus.

    Talk about control issues, what is the matter with people today, this is how we are going the shape our future children, No respect for the fallen, America, and WTF is with student government.

    Purple hair is for little kids having fun at a Halloween party, not on a women that old (ridiculous).

      Of course she is.

      These whackos are lucky that they can become professors and get tenure and become queen bitches of their little faculty fiefdoms. The real world sure has no damn use for 'em.
      Stay single and prosper!

        Good... students need to know who their ideological enemy is. Collectivists just can't help themselves... there is no shortage of examples like this.

        Whereas the mythical white cis patriarchy oppressors are much harder to nail down... as are the millions of campus rapists these colleges claim exist on their campus.

          Not to worry. I have explained why I am convinced the USA will go down within ten years. Wait! Wait!Click. Make that 9 years. Once the system goes down, these fiends will have no power at all. They will be kissing the first man they see when it gets hungry out.
