  1. Academic mobbing, or how to become campus tormentors
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    If you’re a university professor, chances are fairly good that you have initiated or participated in mobbing. Why? First, because mobbers are not sadists or sociopaths, but ordinary people; second, because universities are a type of organization that encourages mobbing; and third, as a result, mobbing is endemic at universities. Unlike bullying, an individual form of harassment in which a typical scenario consists of a boss victimizing an assistant, mobbing is a serious organizational deficiency.
  2. Am I a bad feminist?
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2018

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2018
    With Me Too’s focus where it is, on man’s injury to woman, the capitalist for-profit system can wash its hands. Eyes glued to salacious details are off the oppressive economic order that has over time erased our cultures, communities and is set to destroy all life on the planet.

    A wide range of behavior -- including flirtation and innuendo, a vulgar text or a crude joke, not to mention unpleasant sex -- is being lumped together with real crimes of coercion and assault. Those called out for sexual impropriety, no matter how trivial, how unproven or how long ago, run the media gantlet, are declared guilty and their careers ruined.
