Her tuition so damn high she can wear whatever tf she wants
There’s a better thing to her story. She CONTINUED her thesis in her underwear and afterward her professor said “what would your mother think wearing those kinds of clothes”
And she responded “my mother’s a feminist also a gender and sexuality studies professor. She’s fine with my shorts”
i think the best part is that a majority of the class also stripped with her in solidarity
Just to give a little more perspective after reading the story:
The sequence of events is a little jumbled in the telling above. The actual chastising from the teacher came days before the woman’s thesis, during a practice run of her presentation. This was not a spur-of-the-moment thing where she just whipped off her clothes for the sake of being angry. Chai took the time to think things through before deciding this was the way she wanted to protest. She used critical thinking and level-headedness to decide instead of becoming volatile and aggressive, she would choose non-violent protest.
I just don’t like the way the story’s being told by others because it makes her come across as “overly-emotional” and “erratic” (as women often do in the media, because it’s easier to attribute extreme action to “hysteria”), whereas in actual news reports, she had time to think about her decision and choose the best way to handle what happened to her.
I just read the links, how could we leave out that SHE HAD OTHER STUDENTS STRIP WITH HER!? She didn’t do this alone she rallied her peers to come watch her thesis “in their favorite underwear” and when she took off her clothes they did the same
IT’S BACK, THE LEGEND.
