Ms. Venkatesan lectured in freshman composition, intended to introduce undergraduates to the rigors of expository argument. "My students were very bully-ish, very aggressive, and very disrespectful," she told Tyler Brace of the Dartmouth Review. "They'd argue with your ideas." This caused "subversiveness," a principle English professors usually favor.This is pretty much a comedy goldmine of idiocy.
There's a general irony of people who argue against reason- and let's be honest, that's what she was doing. "Science" is nothing more than the primary tool of reason. To argue against reason, you must use reason, thus invalidating your argument. You could try and use nonsense to argue against reason, but that's... well, nonsense.
This professor seemed to excel at using nonsense.
