Skip to comments.Porn professor goes berserk on campus

A professor of feminist studies who specializes in teaching pornography, queer theory and black film is accused of going berserk at a California pro-life demonstration last week, stealing and destroying an anti-abortion sign and assaulting a teen girl who tried to retrieve it.
Police are now investigating the events involving Mireille Miller-Young, who teaches at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
According to the Santa Barbara Independent which first broke the story, Miller-Young came across the pro-life display sponsored by the Christian pro-life group Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust on March 4.
Thirteen members of the group had posted banners and literature which displayed graphic imagery of late-term abortions designed to spark conversations with passing students.
Joan Short, a 21-year-old student at Thomas Aquinas College and a member of the pro-life group, told the paper Miller-Young exchanged heated words, complained about the anti-abortion message, and led the gathering crowd into a chant of Tear down the sign! Tear down the sign! before grabbing a banner and walking with it across campus.
As Joan called 9-1-1, her 16-year-old sister, Thrin Short, began recording the events on a smart phone, as the pair followed the professor and two of her students into a building to try to retrieve the banner.
The Independent report states:
As Miller-Young and the students boarded an elevator, Joan said that Thrin repeatedly blocked the door with her hand and foot and that Miller-Young continually pushed her back. Miller-Young then exited the elevator and tried to yank Thrin away from the door while the students attempted to grab her video camera. As Thrin tried to get away, the professors fingernails left bloody scratches on her arms, Joan claimed.

More proof that liberalism is a mental disorder.
Those oh, so tolerant Leftists strike again!
How does one get a gig teaching...pornography?

Makes me thirst for a tall glass of hemlock.

I think my wife's professor was the chair for that department, not just someone who was mistakenly given tenure.
They all need to leave the education profession IMO.
What in the world is “queer theory”?

Maybe she wanted a poster to use in her class as an example of pornography. A baby pic “post Gosnell” would certainly qualify.
Reminds me of Alan Grayson in drag.
