The article refers to "depicted ordinary men as patriarchy's brutal foot 
soldiers".  Evidence in support of such a claim is available every time we 
have a discussion about men doing awful things and some "brutal foot soldier" 
feels obliged to post an anti-feminist rant.

Jacob has been accused of sexual abuse by both men and women.  Until now the 
discussion on this list hasn't referenced feminism.

Why did you do this Tim?

Because Jacob is popular he got some organisations to defend him, they demand 
"due process".  Which isn't relevant as the CoC for LCA and other LA 
conferences doesn't require any court appearance.


The conspiracy theorists believe that it's a government conspiracy.  However 
the fact that so many people defend him (and everyone else who does such 
things) shows that it would be an extremely incompetant agency that decided to 
stage such a conspiracy when they could easily have put drugs in his luggage.  
Such conspiracy theories are just stupid, the above URL is an example of what 
happens when an intelligence agency wants someone out of the way.
