Quote note (#178)

Intense:

The academy demands a total identification with its principles, practices, and values. It’s like a religion, and sometimes it’s like a cult. If you leave it, there will be a void. You will lose your sense of self. You’ll lose a large chunk of your social network and support system. You’ll lose the future that you anticipated for yourself. Acknowledging these losses is essential to the grief and eventual healing process. You can relate all of this to Kübler-Ross’s stages of grief. […] I urge every client that I work with on the post-academic transition to seek professional help with a therapist …

    Where do you think therapists are trained and accredited?

    Asking a clinical psychologist (who’s probably had many more gender equality, diversity, equity and fairness seminars than anybody else) to treat the repercussions of the Cathedral is like asking Owen Jones to un-poz your neghole.

    “advises would-be tenure-trackers on such minefields as […] what kind of shoes to wear on a campus visit if you’re a gender nonconformist.”

    The fact that I find non-gender-conforming shoes funnier than the line about therapy marks me as part of the mitraille, doesn’t it?

    Haha, just wait for the day NRx is coopted by metrosexual hipsters with their “epic beards”, murses (and fashionable bulky Polaroid cameras), skinny velvet tartan green flood pants, colorful socks and genderless shoes.

    The fact there’s even a market, at 500 bucks a pop, for these services is mind boggling—it’s just wrong on so many levels.

    I can see her now, “Mrs. Freddy Einsford-Hill,” in a wretched little flat above a store. I can see her now! Not a penny in the till, and a bill-collector beating at the door! She’ll try to teach the things *I* taught her… and end up selling flowers instead! Begging for her bread and water! While her husband has his breakfast in bed! In a year or so, when she’s prematurely gray, and the blossom in her cheek has turned to chalk, she’ll come home, and lo! He’ll have upped and run away with a social climbing heiress from New York! Poor Eliza! How simply frightful! How humiliating! How *delightful*!

    The difference between strong advocacy and a cult:

    We are right, and everyone else is wrong. – Strong Advocacy

    Anyone who does not agree with us is wrong and an enemy. – Cult

    Cults are common among us: Apple, liberalism, New Age, etc.
