[OP-ED]: ‘Sexual paranoia’ arrives on campus

 04/20/2017 - 08:21
Kipnis bends over backward to repeatedly and vehemently note that she is (a) a certified left-wing feminist and (b) absolute in her belief that women should be safe from harm on campus, at work and everywhere else.
English

If Laura Kipnis thought she was under fire in 2015 after writing an essay for The Chronicle of Higher Education criticizing an emergent “sexual paranoia” on college campuses, then her new book will surely catapult her into public-enemy No. 1 status in the eyes of legions of angry feminists.

Si Laura Kipnis pensó que estaba bajo ataque en 2015 después de escribir un ensayo para The Chronicle of Higher Education, en que criticaba la naciente “paranoia sexual” en las universidades, ahora su nuevo libro sin duda la catapultará al puesto de enemigo público No.1 en la opinión de legiones de feministas.
