Racism to fight racism.

They really should learn to check their privilege.

Telling a lame joke in an elevator can endanger your career apparently. If there happens to be a 'Gender and Womens Studies" professor in the car.

I categorically refused. In acting this way, the ISA ignored its own code of conduct, which requires any aggrieved party to try to resolve a conflict privately before asking for adjudication from the ethics committee.

I agree that this case is ridiculous, but unfortunately private resolutions are going to go away very very soon.  There is no trust anymore.

The value of anonymity...

In academia, censorship and conformity have become the norm
A new academic journal, titled The Journal of Controversial Ideas, launching in the new year, will be peer-reviewed and offer a diverse range of viewpoints, calling upon liberals, conservatives, as well as those who are religious and secular, to submit their work. Most notably, it will allow academics to publish under pseudonyms.

Much of the response to this journal has been criticism alleging that only academics with hateful ideas would require the option to publish under a pseudonym. In truth, facts today are deemed controversial if they deviate from accepted narratives, and professors must self-censor out of fear of being condemned and losing their jobs.

Taking a look at the editorial board, it looks like it could work. And they say explicitly:  "We will not publish work that is polemical, intentionally inflammatory or ad hominem."

So while it's anonymous, it's still supposed to be rigorously reviewed and required to meet the standards of academic publication. Sounds interesting. We'll see how it goes in practice.
