omg at "posner answers the feminists" today. who wanted to hug posner/hit him in the face with a pie? (i'm in the latter group.)
What wasn't to like about Posner? He shot down an entire critical perspective in under 10 seconds. Oh yeah, maybe thats what not like about him. Whatever, good laugh.
i really enjoyed his "WE HAVE BIGGER THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT THAN YOUR MAIN FIELD OF STUDY, PROFESSOR CASE". yes, we all make fun of case for her obsession with unisex bathrooms. but....that's now my favorite argument. why do i skip class? WE HAVE BIGGER THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT, LIKE THE WAR ON TERROR.
i have case for sex discrimination and we spent virtually the entire next class discussing the debate. she's seriously a class act and was trying to defend posner when all of us were insulting him. (i should point out that my problem with his performance was that he's incredibly smart, yet didn't seem to even try to address any of nussbaum or cases' arguments. he was clearly unprepared and didn't even make an attempt to answer their questions.)
yes, i am a feminist, in case that wasn't abundantly clear.
on to bigger and better things. the musical is a week from friday and is going to be awesome. for the 1Ls here, there is unlimited beer and pizza on friday for the price of a ticket (somewhere between $15-20), as well as a pit band, students dancing and singing (for the most part, in a cute yet amateur fashion), and a special faculty cameo somewhere in the show. i have no idea who it will be. my 1L year it was professor cox, but last year it was gersen and miles.
