When "I will take my sword to defend this scholar's academic freedom!" means "I will stand on principle when no principle stand is required because it serves my own shoddy thinking in advancing harmful ideas."
I'm referring to the fact that we have yet to see evidence that #KathleenStock's academic freedom has been hampered in any way. She has secure employment. She got an OBE. Her university publicly celebrated her OBE. Her position is safe and secure.
Yet people write & sign a petition that her academic freedom is in peril.

It isn't.

She produces bad & harmful writing.

She shouldn't do so. She should take the responsibilities of her academic freedom more seriously.

But her right to to advance shitty arguments is no danger.
