In explaining the arc of her life since Mattress Performance, Sulkowicz invokes something surprising. “As I became more and more feminist,” she recalls, “I think I got to a point where I was literally just straight up hating men. I just hated men, I wished all men would die.” But embarking on her political journey made her want to understand them, so she jumped into the belly of the beast, reading the book that “had always been framed to me as the book that all dudes read and then they became yucky”: Neil Strauss’s The Game, considered the bible of pickup artists.
Nowhere in the article stated that she apologized getting her "Friend" expelled from school. Although, people change over time, including political leanings. Did she take a massive red pill? Well, she's more open to new ideas and it seemed her BF that she was skeptical on dating changed her a lot, and see the world in another perspective.

Libertarians the way Americans use the term are most certainly rightwingers. Social libertarians are the ones that aren't rightwingers but this isn't what the article is talking about.

Most*.

We took the socialist etymology and vastly improved it. I think "left libertarianism" is an oxymoron.

I had a friend who was super leftist, like hippy leftist but he was also dumb in a political kind of way. He lived in this leftist fantasy world in his head where reality was of no consequence. He was one of those leftist who follows the crowd acritically. He moved to the UK and he became the opposite, now he's right wing equally extreme but equally dumb for the other side. Someone once told me that people on the ends of the political spectra are one and the same. I believe that.

Everyone grows up.
You can not be a clueless college student in a retarded liberal-arts-tard class forever.
True, but there are stupid Liberals and there are evil Liberals. This one is evil; tried to destroy lives. She hasn’t paid the price for what she attempted to do.

Btw, while reading up on her, Wikipedia says she’s non binary and prefers the them/they pronouns. Look at the fucking shock on my face.

I believe that as well.

I met some people who did the same. Went from one extreme to another. They are generally bad with arguments and eat this shit up (conspiracies, stuff like that).

I remember, when some skinhead looking dudes and their skinhead girlfriends moved into my neighborhood, and on the bus i was able to listen to them talking bad about foreigners.
Two months later I saw them drinking happily with the local punks in a very alternative leftish bar, and they have grown hair to adjust to "the scene".
That was my first time realizing, that extreme people are simply all the same in the end.

The guy's using the name "Chad?" This is so over the top it almost sounds like a parody. Either that or Emma has no grounded "center" or sense of self.

I mean, first she's in college where she gets indoctrinated with radical feminism and how "all men are rapists," so she ends up believing normal sex is rape.

Now she meets a right-wing lawyer guy so she instantly falls in line with him? Jesus, I hope she doesn't meet a serial killer and instantly adopt his values next. We'll be reading about how eating someone's liver with fava beans and Chianti is stunning and brave.

She sounds like a weak person susceptible to influence. Its a shame that she was ever taken seriously and ruined a guy's life.

Uber feminist becomes staunch conservative.

Can't she be normal? What's wrong with being kinda feminist, or kinda conservative?

In a cave outside of Whooville.
So what happened to the guy that got expelled? Can he file charges against her since it sounds like she made the whole shit up?
A guy getting justice over a woman who says he raped her? I guess if we lived on a different planet.

It's ok though. When a liberal does something wrong like this, it's a good thing because it started a conversation that needed to be had! When a conservative does something wrong like this...oh wait they don't really seem to pull these hoaxes. But if they did, it would be from their cold, dead, evil hearts and they would need to be canceled.

A bit late but I have always had a crush on her when I see pictures of her pop up. There's something appealing about the idea of romance with someone who hates you.

...getting her "Friend" expelled from school...
He was not expelled from school.
But she smeared him, followed by harassment campaign.

PS
There is something very pathetic about conservative excitement about some odious humanoids hinting they are conservative.
