imagine saying this ableist BS about students AND thinking you're going to bat for professors OR that you know what grading is or should be

you cannot sit with us, sir screenshot bad tweets
I know I said I was going to stop responding to bad takes but I think we all knew I was lying
I cannot speak for my colleagues, but I fucking LIVE for students who push back and demand more of me

not the douches who think they know all the answers and don't do the readings

but the ones who genuinely don't get it and WANT to
ESPECIALLY if they're also folks who aren't encouraged to push back against power structures

fuck yes, ask me why you got that grade

ask to talk to my chair

file some goddamn paperwork about it

grades are bullshit and I don't think I'm wrong but good for you for pushing
sorry I know the OP was on some shit about why profs should be able to take advantage of power dynamics to fuck/with their students but we ALSO know I cannot focus

NTTs don't *have* to do research

unless they want to, you know, use the skills they spent a decade cultivating and were taught were the only real way to be a scholar and are the only way other scholars will see them as doing scholarship
I want to say again that I fully know have good I have it (and *have* had it)

I have never been a 4/4, commuting to multiple campuses to make ends meet prof

(though I will have utterly failed as a scholar and a human if I ever see their struggles as separate from mine)
my biggest teaching load ever was a 3/3 and my classes tend to be smaller and bc I've mostly done VAPs at "good" schools, I've been well resourced even when not well regarded

I've mostly been able to opt into my service commitments (even if I maybe overcommitted)

hi friends

hello

are you a tenured or TT faculty member interested in the expertise of someone who shares your qualifications and training but not your good fortune on the curséd job market?

would you, in short, like to "pick" a NTT expert's "brains?"

okay good let's talk
before we begin:

1) this can but doesn't necessarily apply to other contingent folks

[you can skip the rest of the thread if you promise never to ask to "pick" the "brains" of fellow contingent scholars ever again; let's find a better way ask for help and keep trucking]
[you might not know this but folks in privileged positions LOVE to "pick" the "brains" of marginalized folks, within and beyond the academy

and what that means is "use the hard-won experiences of folks who lack my privilege to further myself w/o boosting that brain's owner]

while I'm waiting for this freaking PPT to convert to mp4 *again* so I can hurry up and wait for it to upload to Vimeo

hey folks who narrate slideshows

what's your favorite way of doing that?

bc PPT to mp4 used to be my fave but it is currently
the reason I have historically done this on PPT is that it lets you record audio for each individual slide, instead of just talking over a PPT like on Panopto

because trying to do a single take recording for a 45-slide presentation is a goddamn nightmare
and sure, it takes fucking forever to convert to mp4, but it *used* to work just fine

it no longer does

so I am officially looking for better options

okay, let's pull this piece out

bc a of all: yes, teachers aren't special

this is 2021

we all get perceived, like it or not

but also, and I say this as a scholar of abuse: please note that this douche thinks folks shouldn't talk about profs' behavior publicly
bc you know what makes abuse possible?

lack of public accountability

please for the love of christ, students: talk about your teachers

tell us what happens in your classrooms
unless you're complaining about critical race theory or like, learning that Muslims are people

you can keep that shit to yourself

tell me no women were on your design team without telling me no women were on your design team
one of the more upsetting revelations whilst so many of us are working from home was reading responses to Toobin's behavior

and seeing how many dudes on Ada Lovelace's internet think wanking at work is fine as long as no one catches you at it

why, why would you do this
women are not at a loss for places to receive unsolicited dick pics
