I'm about as Left as they get, but after the past year, I now despise liberals. If I ever spot an SJW in real life, I don't know if I'll be able to stop myself from spitting at them. Thankfully, there are very few of them around these parts.

Don't let them claim the term liberal. They are illiberal in every sense of the word. It time for liberal(people who believe in liberty and equality) from both sides of the aisle and beyond to call these people out for what they are: illiberal authoritarians.

I prefer calling them fascists, it's pithy and rolls off the tongue.

If anything, SJWs are a tool of the wealthy, acting as a smokescreen from actual liberal issues. It's no coincidence that many of them come from money and talk about every kind of privilege except wealth/class.

Among a certain crowd political correctness has made being a victim an automatic win in any disagreement. If two people are in a dispute that crowd looks at the disputants and tallies up how many victim points each side has and declare the winner. Unless of course you don't buy into the whole game in which case you automatically lose. You can be a poor, black, lesbian, rape survivor, single-mother with aids who grew up under apartheid and if you disagree with the game you're literally worse than Hitler.

This is why "rape culture" is so very important. Without vicariously sharing in the victimization of a few actual rape survivors by applying the magic of "rape culture" to the occasional offensive comment one of the single most privileged groups in whole world: rich white suburban girls lose all the victim points vital to winning the game.

I get enough of this bullshit on the internet, thanks. I don't need this rubbish in real life, where real problems belong.

Man, there's no Monarchists where I live. It must be an echo chamber.

There is no way that man should have lost his career over that statement. I admit it was harebrained , but not offensive to the point that it should cost him his career. If they find anything on her I hope she crashes and burns. Serves her right.

I admit it was harebrained .

It wasn't even harebrained. it was a perfectly innocent speech. His comments were tongue-in-cheek poking fun at himself and his own relationship with his wife another eminent scientist whom he met in the lab, fell in love with, and married. The controversial bit was immediately followed by "now seriously" and then a bit supporting women in the lab.

Only an idiot could find his comments offensive. Only someone truly evil would try to get him fired for them.

Add to that the character of the women involved. It strikes me as something, in all seriousness, the result of mental instability. Here she is actively lying about her career and she invites additional scrutiny upon herself? It seems like she was drinking her own Kool-Aid.

It was a foolish move on his part to engage the topic as someone without a minority status card to flash. SJWs have targeted the scientific community before, they will do so again, and they don't give a damn about who they trample in their madcap quest for... well, what they're actually working towards isn't really certain, so I'll just say "revenge" because it's not wrong, even though it might not be the whole picture.

It's not just idiots that would find his comment offensive, but people who were given a sliced-up version of his comment. And it doesn't take true evil to get him fired, just banal ass-covering bureaucrats terrified of a PR nightmare.

Seems like a case of judging and commiting someone by the media and mass hysteria. Very common nowadays. The news media and Twitter are the courts.

Honestly he should sue the hell out of her for defamation of character, loss work wages, emotional stress, and anything else they can think of. UCL and ERC should get off their asses and officially apologize and give him his position back.

About time the real story started surfacing here. Joke + out of context, but nobody hears that

Going by the pics alone, I would take his word over hers anytime.

So this venerable scientist had his reputation ruined because one dimwitted scandalmonger lacking a sense of irony... tweeted? Really? This is what we've come to? An accomplished man of note can have his life and career upended by the inane ravings of some fucking nobody? Fuck. This. Earth.
