male professor

This isn't a gender studies course

A few years ago, I was taking an English course at the local community college. Apparently a previous student had called [the teacher] out for being a sexist douchebag, so he did a lot of research about gender (mostly along pop psych/evo psych lines) and decided to theme the whole class around it. Clearly a brilliant move.

As mentioned, it’s been a while, so I’ve blocked a lot of the obnoxious things he said out of my mind. These are the incidents I do remember, however.

  • Explaining that men and women can never be friends because the men will always inevitably want to have sex with the women.
  • Explaining that women don’t play video games because they fulfill a man’s hunting instincts.
  • I don’t remember the context for this one, and I guess it doesn’t really apply as mansplaining, but it’s remarkable in its own way. For some reason, he was going around to all of the men in the room, putting them on the spot and asking what they were looking for in a girlfriend/wife. He was totally shocked when one of the guys said he was gay, like the possibility had never occurred to him, and he floundered for a bit trying to figure out how to rephrase the question to prove his point before moving on.

You had a routine thing going week that you had started not long after moving into Xavier’s school. You would spend an hour on homework every night, then read one chapter of a book, then do another half an hour of homework before going to talk with friends, and your cute boyfriend, Kurt Wagner. Sometimes Kurt would join you in this time to spend more time with you and to help each other with homework.

whats your opinion on that /other/ attractive male pokemon professor? yknow, the one that speaks baguette? oui oui omelette du fromage ect ect

Look, is there some secret club for these professor guys?? How do they all know each other?!

Anyways, Sycamore’s pretty cool. I guess.

Took me to buy a few new shirts out in the city the first night I got to Lumiose. (And have you BEEN to Lumiose?! One’a those stupid shirts was more than I made in two months back in Alola! The guy must be loaded!) I got like a whole new wardrobe now. It’s crazy.

Never mind that I could barely understand a word he was sayin’. And the cologne on him was so strong I almost suffocated.

Meta-Mansplain with a Twist!

This is not really a true account of mansplaining but I thought it was something that people would definitely appreciate. 

I am a junior in college and a Women and Gender Studies major. I was in my Feminist Theory class and we were talking about different ways of discourse. My male professor brought up the idea of mansplaining and asked if anyone could explain it. I rose my hand being an avid follower of this blog. I got no more than three words out before he started talking over me and saying I wasn’t explaining it right. I started to get mad and he laughed before apologizing but he said he couldn’t help but give every one a good example of it.

30 Years Later (Charles X Reader)

Warnings: None


Request: Young Charles Xavier being seduced by a fellow mutant teacher and years later still being happy together? Pretty please - you’re awesome!

Charles had an odd feeling about you the second you walked through those doors, so he watched you closely. He watched how kind you were with the children, and how they respected you. He saw how you carried yourself with confidence and dignity, something a lot of mutants struggled with. He saw how your clothes complimented your body and how you treated each person uniquely to make them feel special and worthy.

What I find fun is that only 10% of my coursemates, in a highly regarded writing BA, are male. Yet 75% of our professors are male (you have to be widely published to apply for professorship for starters), over 90% of Nobel literature prize winners are male. Only 2 women have won the best original screenplay Oscar in the last 25 years. 4 have won best adapted screenplay in the same timeframe, 2 of which were co-wins with male writers. I mean fuck, look at Wonder Woman: all five credited writers are men. I’ve been told that if I get published as a novelist, I should consider using a pen name or my initials (like JK Rowling did), that way people aren’t scared off by a woman writing science fiction. I can improve my sales noticeably by tricking people into assuming I’m a man.
When I switched from Engineering into Writing, I was told by so many people that it was a shame because we need more women in engineering. That may be true, but we need more successful female writers too. We need more successful women full stop.

One of my many problems with rwby are body types and their incredible lack of variety in the show.

In rwby there’s 2 distinct body types that most characters fall into: 1) extremely thin and slender for the gurls and 2) buff and swole for the boiz. Even Jaune, who is supposed to be the weakest of the cast is shown to have back muscles galore in volume 2. Whereas Yang, with her insane strength and heavy gauntlets that shoot out goddamn shotgun bullets has no trace of even the faintest of muscle. Ruby is capable of wielding a super heavy scythe that’s twice her size while sprinting, but her legs are basically two long sticks and her arms are thin af. Blake can use her ribbons and gun as a grappling hook, which requires immeasurable arm and core body strength but, again, she has no muscles. Heck, Weiss was trained in fencing and that shit takes some fucking upper body strength she is outright not shown to have. Same with Winter, same with literally every female character in the show.

Velvet can copy every move she analyses (which you’d think would require an insane amount of practice and workout so that she’d be able to perform all those incredible athletic feats perfectly) but she’s ridiculously slender. Coco wields a goddamn minigun in high heels and has no muscle. Nora has a heavy hammer. Arslan knows martial arts. Neon and Reese can fight while skating. Emerald is a master thief with insane dexterity (swinging from tree to tree with a sickle anyone?) and Cinder can fire a bow mid-air while doing a backflip. Pyrrha was literally the Invincible Girl and Remnant’s best Hunter, capable of astonishing combat moves, but had no muscle mass in the show. All of these female characters are stupidly slender.

There’s also no representation for plumper, plus-sized hunters, except for professor Port. Why couldn’t team NDGO have chubby women in it? Why didn’t we see fierce warriors with more body mass than a toothpick storm into battle to defend Vale? I get that these characters are supposed to be young, but young people aren’t just fashion model skinny girls or body builder buff boys.

Similarly, all the men are buff and muscly (save for Port) which is like, super dumb because skinny men exist and chubby men exist and there’s a whole bunch of different body types for men and women (and genderqueer people, if they exist in Remnant, but honestly that’s a different can of worms to open right now) that RT could have added in rwby. You could say “oh but these hunters are supposed to be super athletic and fit to fight grimm” to which I say a) that should be a two-way street and not a male-only phenomenon b) Professor Port can fight just fine so why can’t we get other chubby hunters and c) in a world where 50% of female hunters wear high heels in combat, I think we can forsake “realism” and have some goddamn variety in the body types of magic warriors fighting evil monsters that come out of inky-black pools of slime.

Mansplaining Psychology Research to the Psychologist

I was introduced to “Professor Engineer” because he was in charge of diversity training for his program, and I was doing a study on how to do diversity training “right.” Done wrong, it can backfire, and make the atmosphere even worse for women.

Prof. Engineer talked enthusiastically for an hour before I was able to complete a sentence. I am highly assertive, so I tried to save the meeting by interjecting, “Well, actually, that’s my research area, and studies find…,” and “I know because we spend graduate school learning how to do that,” and “Yes, I teach a course on that,” and “My dissertation was about that.” But he waved his hand dismissively and proceeded to lecture me about:

- stereotypes (my research area)

- how to measure attitude change (what my field does)

- when it’s appropriate to complete IRB ethics paperwork (I have done hundreds of times)

- research designs that let you assess if change has occurred (I teach this)

- journals to choose (I publish in them)

At one point he digressed, and then seeing me raise my eyebrows, he said, “I know I’m going off on a tangent, but I can tell we have a connection and we’re going to work together. There’s no question."  I’m not sure that by that point I’d said more than two words!

So why am I still going to work with him? He’s a decent guy who genuinely cares about student diversity. My gut says that his patronizing manner comes from ignorance and lack of social skills, not disrespect. And not only will he help me get my research done, he will provide lots of great entries for this tumblr.

Dorian and the Inquisitor are both lecturers at the local college. Dorian teaches something smart and complicated that always leaves the Inquisitor a little in awe. It doesn't help that he has a huge crush on Dorian. Of course, everyone seems to know except Dorian, who flirts outrageously with everyone but can't seem to see what's right in front of him.

I just marathoned Sherlock with 2 literature professors. Both male and straight! They'd never seen it before and were absolutely delighted, picking out metaphors and subtext as they were watching it. Both agreed it's probably a gay love story. They pretty much came up with their own tjlc-theory on the spot. So there's more out there in the straight world than just antis. Thought this story would amuse you tjlc-ers. But then literature profs are used to Andre Gide, Oscar Wilde et al. No surprise.

Hi Nonny! What a lovely story! It’s nice to know that TJLCer’s and the general audience and media weren’t the only ones who picked up on the subtext of the series. I really REALLY still don’t think we are wrong, Nonny. I REALLY DON’T. The fact that everything took such a drastic turn in TFP is a large part of why I don’t think we’re done with S4 yet.

Professors are evaluated differently based on their gender.

This chart reveals that the results for a search of “genius” on evaluations is more likely to be used when describing male professors. The x-axis is the number of times genius is used per million words of text.
