Laura Kipnis, the Northwestern University professor who faced down a Title IX investigation after writing an essay about sexual relationships between students and professors, is now being sued for defamation.
Short version: "You talked about me and didn't kiss my ass as a victim! You didn't use my name, and didn't lie but YOU FURTHER VICTIMIZED ME!"
Indeed, there's a sense in which this lawsuit actually proves the
central ideas of Kipnis's book—that sexual paranoia pervades the modern
university campus, where messy relationships are treated like assault,
women are presumed to lack agency when it comes to consent, and
tribunals are seen as the solution to every dispute.
