A blog dedicated to stopping the anti-woman hate speech at Harvard Law School, where women are being publicly called “sluts.”
Added (3/29): Some commentators have complained that this blog is being published anonymously, for example here (“Dear blogger – why blog anonymously? It seems odd since you name drop HLSRJ members whose views you oppose. Show yourself and have a conversation, instead of hiding in cyberspace.”); and here (“Please stop hiding your anti-woman rhetoric behind a shield of anonymity that the internet provides.”).
Ordinarily this complaint would have merit, but these commentators have overlooked the unusual context here. This blog defends mainstream, traditional, conservative thinking on sexuality and particularly on the treatment of women. Indeed, it defends the national consensus view articulated by major opinion leaders just a month ago that women should never be referred to as “sluts.”
Because this blog reflects mainstream, traditional, conservative thinking, it necessarily must attack the views of the radical Harvard feminists who organized “Sex Week” and who are advertising it with “slut” posters, “slut” flyers and, most recently, “slut” chalkboarding, or “hate chalk.” Unfortunately, those are politically correct views which hold privileged status at Harvard Law School.
Because, by contrast, the views expressed on this blog are politically incorrect ones, they cannot be expressed at Harvard Law School under one’s own name, even in private, without the author(s) being faced with intense attacks directed at destroying the career of the author(s). Anyone who expresses politically incorrect views at Harvard Law School, even in private, risks seeing the Dean personally intervene, using the national media, to attack the author(s) for expressing such politically incorrect thoughts in private, as this blog post by a law professor at another law school (linked to on the first post on this blog) examines.
The above probably makes a point that’s obvious to anyone familiar with the impediments to politically incorrect speech at Harvard Law School, but the comments appeared to be made in good faith (possibly the commentators aren’t at Harvard) and ordinarily the complaint would have merit, so it seemed important to have on this blog an explicit statement as to why the blog is being authored anonymously.
