Pando: The Bear’s Lair: The untold story of systemic gender discrimination inside UC Berkeley’s IT Department
"It isn’t a story about assault; it is a story about bias, of bullying, of intimidation, of giving women lesser assignments, of shutting them out of mentoring opportunities, of employers who constantly said the women were “misinterpreting” things and being too sensitive, of a culture where decision making was done over drinks several nights a week, of women being told they weren’t “technical” enough, of sidelining their confidence and their career progress so much that they finally leave."

Is This the End of the Era of the Important, Inappropriate Literary Man?
In public, everyone says that Thomas Sayers Ellis, 52, formerly of Case Western and Sarah Lawrence, a visiting professor at the Iowa Writers Workshop this semester, is brilliant. Even the people who find him off-putting and unprofessional tend to agree. He’s charismatic and surprising, a protest poet, a real intellectual, unafraid to cause alarm. His style is enjambed, urgent, and rhythmically afire; in the late ‘80s, he founded the Dark Room Collective to promote writers of color, and he’s been known as an activist ever since. He attracts women; several women I talked to said he had “groupies.” But in late February, a group of women came together to say that he’s abusive, that he preys.

Hot Allostatic Load – The New Inquiry
Feminist/queer spaces are more willing to criticize people than abusive systems because they want to reserve the right to use those systems for their own purposes. At least attacking people can be politically viable, especially in a token system where you benefit directly by their absence, or where your status as a good feminist is dependent on constantly rooting out evil.
