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.

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.

According to the National Student Clearinghouse, which tracks college enrollments, the number of students in colleges and universities has now dropped for five straight years, and this year 81,000 fewer high school graduates nationwide are heading to higher-education institutions.

[OP-ED]: La ‘paranoia sexual’ llega a la universidad

Kipnis se esfuerza sin cesar en señalar repetida y vehementemente que ella es (a) una feminista de izquierda certificada y (b) absoluta en su opinión de que las mujeres deben estar sanas y salvas de todo daño en la universidad, en el trabajo y en todas partes. 

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.
