We’ve already had one professor weigh in today on America’s annual pity-party and then protect his account. We missed this take by another professor who wanted to get her hot take in a day early, and urge us to be honest that 9/11 wasn’t just an attack on the heteropatriarchal capitalistic systems we use to wrangle other countries into passivity.
No, it was also an attack on the systems many white Americans fight to protect … which is true. So is she saying that the 9/11 attacks were anti-racist because they attempted to dismantle systemic white supremacy?
We might never know, because she, too, has taken her account private.

It was an attack on a system that gave her a PhD, a job, and a blue check mark.

Somehow she believes that the 9/11 Islamist attackers were NOT all-in on heteropatriarchy. It takes a special kind of blindness to screw that one up.

'Cause if there is anything that radical Islamists really hate, it's heteropatriachal capitalists.
If we would just let the women and homosexuals run our communist utopia, they would love us. I mean, just look at how well our gender studies program in Afghanistan went.

Bin Laden hated heteropatriachal societies. That’s why he only lived with organized groups of straight men in caves.

Seems like a colossal leap to me and just another example of trying to couch a historical event in a way that benefits the author but lacks any real foundation in truth. Are we really saying that Al-Qaeda was anti-heteropatriachal? Bin Laden was actually a radical feminist?!

We hear someone complaining that you have to read her whole thread … which we can’t do because she’s taken it private.
Huh. You know, I’d have expected more from a Teen Vogue columnist.

Ah yes…I do recall Osama Bin Laden was a fiercely militant critic of the heteropatriarchy.

So is Homomatriachal socialist the opposite of Heteropatriachal capitalist?

Also since she locked down her account, I have a feeling those tweets did not go the way she expected at all.

What do these people expect, exactly?
