Here is one quote from the Chronicle of Higher Education that made me see red:
"Most of the people who responded did not have the conceptual competence to engage with the post," she said, "as is evidenced by the reaction to my use of the word ‘violence.’ " She said her use of the term was a reference to the scholarly concept of structural violence, which describes "a range of systemic harms that go beyond direct interpersonal physical contact."I guess by that logic her own statement is violent, since it is part of the structural elitism of academia. You get to say someone is not smart enough to understand your technical jargon, not having the "conceptual competence." I know I feel violently offended by that on behalf of everyone who has ever been made to feel stupid by some pedantic professor.
