Let us bring you up to speed on this one.
Professor Diana York Blaine, a self-proclaimed resident Feminist Theorist at USC, has pissed off the guys at Cardinal Martini who found naked pictures of the professor (NSFW), which ended up as a story on NBC4 News.
The professor has written some outlandish things in the Daily Trojan:
So if a few bad eggs don’t respect women’s right to decide if to have sex with them, why should I hold the whole football team accountable? Because I do.
And on her personal blog:
I haven’t any idea what happened, haven’t heard from the women’s spy network on this one yet and may never, so of course I have no way of knowing Sanchez’s guilt or innocence. I do have history to go on, which suggests that smoke indicates fire and that the person who started the fire often walks away unscathed, unlike the victims, who remain deeply scarred forever.
Rape is a heinous, horrible, despicable crime, but a false accusation can make men victims too.
And in such instances where there is seemingly limited evidence except one person’s word against another, we’re disgusted to see LAPD Chief Bratton apparently observing Ms. Blaine’s smoke/fire rules for arresting Mark Sanchez.
Peoples lives and reputations are at stake here, and making “examples” of public figures to show that you are tough on everyone is just plain wrong.
