Your professor was an unprofessional, unqualified, clearly biased egregious bully. You should never have had to endure such bullying. But while objecting to your professor’s uncritical biases, I am seeing in this piece that you too have made several specious, uncritical and, yes, biased and unsupported assumptions. If you value accuracy, education and truth as much as you appear to do, I know you will want to reread your piece, and critically examine your own biases, before publishing or republishing.

First, professors, including professors of all political beliefs, typically do NOT bully students in this fashion. You know this. Statistically, your professor is an outlier. Her actions are rare. From a sample so small, you cannot make credible claims about any group, be it college professors, whites, women, or progressives; b) Your article assumes progressivism caused her behavior. I would argue a stronger case could be made that she is mentally ill. When people act in extreme, odd, hostile ways, more often than not they have mental illness issues. c) I’m a progressive, ex-college professor. I agree with you. 99% of all progressives would agree with you. Your professor’s beliefs appear to me to be conservative. I hope you will take a closer look at what progressives believe, and what conservatives believe, in the future.
