A LOT of those articles, books, and essays are written by WOMEN. So I imagine if I were, say, citing literature in my essay, I would want to be careful to ensure I encompassed it fairly. I might also look at who I am tending to cite in my footnotes.
How did we get here? Easy. 1. Ignore student health concerns. 2. Imply movement for diploma privilege is just a small group of lazy whiny students. 3. Commingle legitimate anger about being ignored with improper attacks to chill speech about the Bar Exam
4. Tell students they should focus on studying. As if that's possible when your Bar could be canceled at the last minute. 5. Establish draconian search rules for an in person exam. 6. Establish draconian movement rules for an online exam.
Some highlights on this thread. First quote from Wax: "Why are successful, peaceful, orderly, prosperous, technologically advanced, democratically sound countries so rare and so few, and why do they clump up in one tiny corner of the globe, namely Europe, the Anglosphere?"
(Gosh, I dunno, you never spoke to anyone about colonialism?).
Wax: "I think colonialism as an explanation is just a nonstarter. Colonialism came very late on the scene."
Me: I like cake.
Troll 1: What do you mean "like?"
Me: Cake is tasty.
Troll 1: Define your terms. "Tasty" means what? Also, what is cake?
Troll 2: I don't appreciate you leaving out pies.
Troll 3: Who cares? The planet is burning.
Me: Look, I'm concerned about the planet, too. I just like cake.
Troll 4: Liberals like cake. I can tell you're a pinko.
Troll 5: I had a friend killed by cake once. You don't know what hell you are bringing upon the planet.
Me: Look, I just want a piece of cake.
Troll 1: WTF! "Piece?" What does that mean?
Troll 2: I reported you to Twitter for threatening to slice.
Me: I was threatening to slice cake.
Troll 3: Cake are people too!
Okay, Twitter, I have a theory about a criminal matter, hear me out (thread)
According to Wikipedia, "Jack the Ripper is the best-known name for an unidentified serial killer generally believed to have been active in the largely impoverished areas in and around the Whitechapel district of London in 1888."
While I wasn't alive in the 1800s, and I've never been to London, there are some coincidences here that suggest that I am Jack the Ripper.
