‘Feminist studies’ prof accused of physically assaulting 16-year-old girl for opposing abortion

Women are strong, independent individuals who should be able to do what they want and say what they think, as long as it doesn’t anger leftists.

Jennifer Kabbany, College Fix:

A department of feminist studies professor [at University of California Santa Barbara] 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.

Much of the scuffle was recorded on a smartphone by the 16-year-old, Thrin Short. The yet-to-be-released video is now in the custody of Santa Barbara law enforcement officials, who are investigating the March 4 incident.

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 faculty webpage.

I’m not a big fan of these types of graphic pro-life signs, but the fact remains that they show the reality of the matter. That’s why they drive abortion enthusiasts, like the delightfully hyphenated Mireille Miller-Young, completely out of their minds. The anti-baby crowd can’t handle the reality of the policies they espouse, so they try to stifle it.

Allegedly, Miller-Young pushed and scratched Short, but it remains to be seen what the video shows. Seems to me that running around yelling “Tear down that sign!” would be a firing offense all by itself, but that’s why I don’t work in academia.

Also, Miller-Young is black and Short is white, so this whole story is racist. Why are you a racist, you misogynist?
