How Fair Is Christine Fair?

The Georgetown women’s studies sage is in the news again, this time with a tweeted wish of death and castration to Republicans on the U. S. Senate Judiciary Committee.

Abigail Marone of Campus Reform reported Fair’s wish that “all of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps.”

Her reviews on Rate My do not reflect an attitude anywhere near as bloodthirsty. Yet and still, only one reviewer rates her as awesome, the other three rank her awful.

Probably the most poignant of these reviews is this one: “Tends to go off on tangents and rant. As a student from the Middle East I sometimes felt uncomfortable with some of her views and discussions. Do NOT challenge her point of view as I did — I wound up dropping the class because of it. Would have been a good class if she stuck to the course material.”

Moreover, Dr. Fair’s intemperate tweets can be foreshadowed in her other reviews as well:

~”There is no discussion, questioning, or debate in her class. You must simply sit and listen to her opinions which are frequently incoherent and disjointed. Worse, her lectures are never supported, just presented as unvarnished dogma. This is not what Georgetown is about. This is not even what a marginal college education is about. AVOID.”

~”It’s a little hard to get past the professor’s POV to focus on material related to class. She takes a “my way or the highway” approach toward opinions. If you take this class, please pretend to be a politically correct liberal. Otherwise, you are in big trouble with this uncritical, unfair hothead.”

And those were posted last year.
