A female professor of German and Comparative Literature at New York University who sexually harassed a male graduate student after a Title IX investigation is being defended by other NYU staff members.
“Soon after the university made its final, confidential determination this spring, a group of scholars from around the world, including prominent feminists, sent a letter to N.Y.U. in defense of Professor [Avital] Ronell,” according to The New York Times. “Judith Butler, the author of the book “Gender Trouble” and one of the most influential feminist scholars today, was first on the list.”
Ronell sexually harassed Nimrod Reitman, a male former graduate student. She referred to him in emails as her “Sweet cuddly Baby,” “cock-er spaniel,” and “my astounding and beautiful Nimrod.”
Ronell has been suspended for a year from NYU, but feminist scholars have rushed to defend her in the same manner that many so-called “evil” and “patriarchal” male “oppressors” would defend a male harasser.
“Although we have no access to the confidential dossier, we have all worked for many years in close proximity to Professor Ronell,” the professors wrote in a draft letter posted on a philosophy blog in June. “We have all seen her relationship with students, and some of us know the individual who has waged this malicious campaign against her.”
In other words, the feminists are blaming the victim.
“Mr. Reitman, who is now 34 and is a visiting fellow at Harvard, says that Professor Ronell kissed and touched him repeatedly, slept in his bed with him, required him to lie in her bed, held his hand, texted, emailed and called him constantly, and refused to work with him if he did not reciprocate,” according to The Times.
Yet the feminists still defended Ronell, saying that the allegations against her are not evidence, though evidence was found during the Title IX investigation.
“We wish to communicate first in the clearest terms our profound an enduring admiration for Professor Ronell whose mentorship of students has been no less than remarkable over many years. We deplore the damage that this legal proceeding causes her, and seek to register in clear terms our objection to any judgment against her,” the letter said. “We hold that the allegations against her do not constitute actual evidence, but rather support the view that malicious intention has animated and sustained this legal nightmare.”
Ronell denies the sexual harassment claims in their entirety.
“I woke up with a slight fever and sore throat,” she wrote in an email to Reitman. “I will try very hard not to kiss you — until the throat situation receives security clearance. This is not an easy deferral!”
“[T]ime for your midday kiss. my image during meditation: we’re on the sofa, your head on my lap, stroking you [sic] forehead, playing softly with yr hair, soothing you, headache gone. Yes?” she wrote in another.
Feminists have never cared about equality. Only power. The Reitman story is a perfect example.

New Mexico Bureaucrat Arrested for Vandalizing State GOP Headquarters
Cameron Chase McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s Democratic governor.
A New Mexico state employee heavily connected to the state Democratic party is being charged with vandalizing the Republican Party’s headquarters in the state.
Cameron Chase McCall was arrested Thursday in relation to spray-paint vandalism of the Republican Party offices in Albuquerque. The Expo New Mexico employee was caught on surveillance cameras spraying the words “still traitors” on the building.
Republican Party officials say the vandalism will cost more than $4,000 to repair.
A quick look into McCall’s background shows his motives to be readily apparent. McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s liberal Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, when she was a member of congress. She condemned her intern’s behavior in a statement released following his arrest.
Albuquerque police are also investigating if McCall is responsible for a closely similar incident back in March, when the same Republican Party offices were spraypainted with the word “traitors.” Sources indicate that the same kind of spray paint was used in both incidents. The initial act of vandalism inspired Republicans to install cameras at the offices, which proved crucial in identifying McCall as the culprit of the latest political crime.
Expo New Mexico is a state-run convention center in Albuquerque. A Bernalillo county judge identified McCall as a “sponsorship coordinator” for the venue during his initial appearance in court on Thursday. McCall was suspended from his job following his vandalism arrest, and officials with the entity state that he’ll be fired if he’s convicted of the charges.
McCall has been released on bond to await trial. He’s one of several political zealots to make national news recently for acting on their hatred for the Republican Party by committing crimes.
