Your little nephew, Joey, has a nasty habit of holding his breath until you buy him a candy bar. He also won’t eat his greens unless he’s promised ice cream. This mature young lady below has adopted Joey’s antics for her own. Childish. Thus is the feminist way (see JUSTICE: Student Falsely Accused of Raping ‘Mattress Girl’ Sues for Defamation and Woman Makes Up Fake Rape Story. Because She Was ‘Traumatized’ By Election…).
A student at the University of Rochester is turning up the drama by refusing to eat until a man she no-likey is fired. If this doesn’t work, kicking and screaming on the floor of a grocery store may well be her next move.
Lindsay Wrobel says at midnight Saturday, it will have been three days since she last ate.
Wrobel is a University of Rochester student who vowed to not eat until university professor Dr. Florian Jaeger was removed from the faculty.
Jaeger is at the center of an EEOC complaint filed against the university. The complaint alleges sexual harassment.
Early Saturday afternoon, a concerned caller noticed the toll of the hunger strike on Lindsay and reported her to first responders. Lindsay refused help, but told public safety at the university she’d notify them if she needed hospitalization.
“It is painful, it is scary thinking about what comes next. I’ve had nausea. I’ve had headaches, I’ve had muscle aches really bad. Even texting feels like work,” Wrobel added. “I fully intend to do this until I’m hospitalized. I think what’s of primary importance is the students on this campus feeling safe. And as of right now, they don’t, and they won’t until Professor Jaeger is removed,” Wrobel said.
As of late Saturday, Dr. Jaeger is still an employee at the university.
In other words…
There’s one small detail we left out. There was both an internal and external investigation, and neither found any wrong doing. A third investigation is underway, just to be on the safe side.
So we have another case of a student having an issue with due process. The professor was accused of sexual harassment, and even though two investigations turned up in his favor, he should be fired anyway just to make people feel better about themselves.
The professors livelihood? Meh. No worries there. He’s a white man after all.
