Ivy League Prof Leading Celibate Life With His Ex Gets Lesbian Pregnant and Gets Punked by Lesbian’s Trans Lover And Her Boyfriend

Men are stupid.

There.

I said it.

I said it despite being a man.

Because as long as a woman meets a minimal floor of aesthetic appeal she can convince a man that he’s incredibly attractive and charming. That floor, of course, is a function of the desperation of the man to feel attractive, the floor can be so low that reasonable people could mistake it for a sub-basement (see Schwarzenegger, Arnold). Oddly enough, the men who most often do the most stupid things for women are those who believe they are smarter than everyone else.

Yesterday, I stumbled upon this sad case via, naturally, Twitter.

Key facts.

Our hero, Bruce Hay, is a professor at Harvard Law. He’s a true social justice warrior (which makes this whole story a lot sweeter) who claimed that Gorsuch’s confirmation would make Trump an authoritarian (The only thing standing between Trump and authoritarianism: the supreme court). He’s not a very accomplished male though. At the time of the sad, sad events I’m about to recount, he’d been divorced for 16 years but was still living with his ex-wife in a celibate way but was not allowed to pick up any strange along the way.

Hay has been legally divorced since 1999, but he lives with his ex-wife, Jennifer Zacks, an assistant U.S. Attorney in Boston, and their two young children…Since moving back in with his ex-wife in 2004, he says, their relationship had been mostly platonic, and the two had an understanding that if either of them wanted to see other people, they’d have to move out.

Then he meets a girl:

On March 7, 2015, Harvard Law professor Bruce Hay, then 52, was in Tags Hardware in Cambridge, Massachusetts, near his home, when a young woman with long reddish-brown hair approached him to ask where she could find batteries. It was still very much winter, and, once the woman got his attention, he saw that underneath her dark woolen coat and perfectly tied scarf she was wearing a dress and a chic pair of boots — hardly typical weekend-errand attire in the New England college town. When he directed her to another part of the store, she changed the subject. “By the way, you’re very attractive,” he remembers her saying.

At this point his alarms should have been going off, but often with men our fail-safe devices don’t function as designed…or maybe they do function as designed…either way, when a (sorta) attractive woman about 30 years your junior hits on you in a freakin hardware store, you would be forgiven for laughing in her face.

They hook up, sorta.

He didn’t mind that a physical relationship was probably off the table — he was taking antidepressants, which often hampered his ability to enjoy sex anyway. Then, on the day Shuman told him she was leaving for New York on her way back to Europe, Hay says, she invited him to her room at the Taj Hotel in Boston, started kissing him, and led him to her bed.

By the way, did I mention that this girl thought Hay was so hot that she turned straight? Because she’s a lesbian with a transgender ex-wife…and three children.

She was now 32, an accountant with young children. Hay says she told him she had two toddlers she was co-parenting with an ex-wife, who lived in London. File under friendship, Hay thought. Shuman also told him about the friend she was staying with, Mischa Haider, a brilliant trans woman pursuing a doctorate in physics at Harvard who was struggling with crippling depression. Hay, who also battled depression, listened with particular interest.

Then comes the kicker:

Six weeks after they broke off contact, Shuman called Hay to tell him she was pregnant with his baby. She hadn’t had sex with another man in the past year, she said. Hay was stunned; he hadn’t ejaculated during either of their encounters, a side effect of his medication. But he understood that pregnancy was possible, if rare, without orgasm. Shuman said she was weighing whether to terminate the pregnancy, then quickly followed up by saying she’d made the decision to carry to term — she was due in January.

And the trans ex-wife of the lesbian? Well she has a boyfriend.

Hay’s relationship with the women could be intoxicating. Even in an international, liberal college town like Cambridge, Hay had never encountered anyone like them, “nearly perfect people” who were “bright and kind and sweet to their children and socially conscious,” and whose family composed a striking, distinctly modern portrait: Haider, a loquacious, impassioned Indian-Pakistani trans woman physicist, the mother of two children (who call her “Maman”) birthed by the sultry, soft-spoken French daughter of a major Jewish American songwriter (she’s called “Sumi”). (Haider’s boyfriend Klein, Hay later discovered, also helped raise the children, who refer to him as “Daddy.”)

And this guy thinks his own ex-wife will be totally fine with it all:

Hay wanted both families to meet, certain that they could find a way to make peace. “I had this crazy idea that everyone could get along, that Jennifer would like them,” he says.

Somehow this woman seems to have a magnet for truly dumb men who think they are smart. Eventually Hay discovers she pulled the pregnancy thing on another guy. They had sex once and ended up in court…

Oddly, one key fact eluded the attention of everyone in the court: Shuman’s first child’s birthday is December 10, 2011–two years after their encounter.

Hay doesn’t think he’s the father but there is the whole woke thing that he’s a part of so he can’t doubt her word.

Not only did he trust Shuman, he felt it would have been insulting for a heterosexual cisgender man to question a professed lesbian as to whether she’d had sex with other men

I can’t go on but this is the synopsis:

Over the next four years, the law professor would be drawn into a “campaign of fraud, extortion, and false accusations,” as one of his lawyers would later say in legal proceedings. At one point, Hay’s family would be left suddenly homeless. At another, owing to what his lawyer has described as the “weaponiz[ation] of the university’s Title IX machinery against Hay,” he would find himself indefinitely suspended from his job. He would accrue over $300,000 in legal bills with no end to the litigation in sight. “Maria-Pia and Mischa want money,” Hay told me last summer, “but only for the sake of squeezing it out of people — it’s the exertion of power.”

As you read this, keep in mind that this is a Harvard Law School professor. This is a guy who thinks he is smarter than you, and knows more than you, and should be able to run your life for you. As you read this, also remember that not only did this happen but he encouraged someone to write a story about it. If this had happened to a normal man…and who among us has not done profoundly stupid and unwise things in the hope of getting the favors of some young woman…he might tell this story to a close friend as they got blind staggering drunk. He certainly wouldn’t tell it to people who are going to publicly mock him.

Anyway, read the whole thing. I guarantee you one thing, even as you shake your head in disbelief you will never, ever feel an ounce of sympathy for him because he’s just that much of a self-absorbed douche.

‘Holocaust Denier’: Alan Dershowitz Excoriates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Her ‘Concentration Camp’ Remarks

Personally, I’ve been disturbed by the Left’s references to Hitler since the days of George W. Bush.

“He’s Hitler!” signs and bumper stickers would declare.

It’s become the put-down of choice, spreading — in my view — dangerous ignorance to an entire generation. Now, it seems, any Republican leader who comes across as egomaniacal or who leads a war or who merely has conservative leanings may be subject to the Adolf treatment.

In order to compare Trump to Hitler or the border to Nazis, one must A) not know what America does, B) not know what Germany did, or C) both A and B.

Apropos, Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz threw down on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her claim that America’s running “Never Again”-style concentration camps at the border.

In fact, Alan accused AOC in a radio interview last week of being a “Holocaust denier.”

There is a sort of logic to that.

For more on Alexandria’s Instagram video that ignited a firestorm of criticism from Survivors and Jewish groups among others, please see my coverage here, here, and here.

In her video Monday, she claimed the following:

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are — they are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t, I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever. I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘Never Again’ means something. The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the ‘Home of the Free’ is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it.”

Here’s what Alan had to say on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight:

“Let nobody misunderstand what she was saying. When she used the words ‘concentration camps,’ what she meant to invoke was the Holocaust. She didn’t make distinctions between death camps and detention centers, between Dachau and Auschwitz. Even in the concentration camps that may not have been death camps, so many people died because they were forced laborers and everything like that. And of course, ‘Never Again’ is the direct invocation of the Holocaust.”

Alan’s analysis of denial:

“By making that comparison, she becomes a Holocaust denier, because what’s she’s saying is: ‘Gee, if all that Hitler did is what Trump is doing on the southern border,’ then there were no death camps, there were no killing squads, there was no genocide, there was no murder of a million-and-a-half babies, there were no selections where people were picked based on their health and whether they were twins and subjected to the most gruesome form of punishment.’”

As I said, there’s a certain logic to it. But if she can be said to have denied the Holocaust, then the same accusation must be laid at the feet of the media, social media users, and — yes — conservatives who’ve made similar allegations against select left-wingers.

Evil exists in 2019, and I have no doubt government can still be its instrument, But in my opinion, no one should accuse contemporary America or any of its current or past leaders of being Nazi Germany or Hitler. The 1930’s and 40’s saw an unprecedented evil arise. Millions of men, women, and children were rounded up at gunpoint — solely due to their heritage — and murdered en masse.

The victims of the Holocaust deserve our remembrance, respect, and reverence. And our understanding that there’s no way to understand what they endured. Their suffering should never be diminished by way of reference to lesser deeds.

Delving further, I invite you to read Gene Simmons’s powerful tribute to his mother — Holocaust survivor Flora Klein. She loved America, because she knew what it meant.

What do you think of all this? I look forward to learning in the Comments section.

Thank you for reading.

Mob Rule Wins at Harvard: Law School Dean Fired Because He’s Harvey Weinstein’s Lawyer

An alternative headline for this article could be: Black man fired from job and kicked out of his home because he defended the constitutional rights of an unpopular person. Sound farfetched? That’s what happened when Harvard Law School decided to cave to the outrage mob and let political correctness triumph over justice and common sense.

Ronald Sullivan, Jr. and his wife Stephanie Robinson are both attorneys with degrees from Harvard Law School and impressive resumes in the years that followed their graduations. Sullivan’s biography on the Harvard website notes his work advising former President Barack Obama on criminal justice issues and his criminal defense work on notoriously difficult cases, securing acquittals in high-profile cases and successfully winning the release of over 6,000 wrongfully incarcerated prisoners.

Since 2009, Sullivan and Robinson served as the co-faculty deans for Winthrop House, one of Harvard’s residential houses. They were the first African-Americans to hold those positions, which include living in the dormitory buildings and serving as advisors to the students there, offering guidance in academics and future career advice as well as working to foster a social atmosphere.

Unfortunately for the couple, their faculty dean roles came into sharp conflict with Sullivan’s criminal defense work during recent months, when he was retained as part of the legal defense team for Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who is perhaps one of the #MeToo movement’s biggest villains. Weinstein is facing multiple charges related to accusations that he sexually harassed, sexually assaulted, and/or raped a long list of actresses, journalists, and other women working in the film industry.

Sullivan’s participation in Weinstein’s legal defense outraged some of the Harvard students at Winthrop, and they demanded he be removed from his position. One of the main student activists, Danukski Mudannayake, described Sullivan’s legal work for Weinstein as “not only upsetting, but deeply trauma-inducing” and claimed it proved that he “does not value the safety of students he lives within Winthrop House.” Mudannayake writes for The Harvard Crimson, the campus student paper, and helped organize a change.org petition, protest events, and other efforts to encourage the administration to kick Sullivan out.

The outrage mob won. Over the weekend, Harvard College Dean Rakesh Kurana wrote an email to students stating, “Ronald Sullivan and Stephanie Robinson will not be continuing as your Faculty Deans when their term ends on June 30, 2019.”

The news was shocking to both sides.

Mudannayake told the New York Times she was “just completely gobsmacked, but in the best way,” adding that she was “very proud today of our college and our college’s administration for finally choosing to do the right thing.”

Sullivan and Robinson also released a statement, saying, “We are surprised and dismayed by the action Harvard announced today. We believed the discussions we were having with high-level university representatives were progressing in a positive manner, but Harvard unilaterally ended those talks.”

Their positions at the law school have not been affected thus far, but since their faculty dean roles necessarily involved living in the Winthrop residential buildings, the couple will have to move.

Let’s be clear about one thing: Weinstein is, by the evidence that has come to light thus far, a terrible person who used his money, fame, and power to demand sexual gratification from unwilling women, and to ruin the careers of anyone who thwarted him. He is not a sympathetic figure in the slightest.

He is still entitled to a full and vigorous defense of his constitutional rights.

Our justice system is built on the foundational principles of due process that the government must prove every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt, that we have have a right to have our case decided by a jury of our peers, and that we have a right to have an attorney advise us throughout this process and advocate on our behalf.

We are all entitled to these rights, regardless of age, gender, race, wealth, or popularity. In fact, there’s a fair argument that these rights are more critical for those who are unpopular.

The burden on the government to satisfy the demands of due process should never be lowered because someone is out of favor. That would be a truly horrific precedent to contemplate, for in these days of social media viral stories, hashtag activism, and 24-7 news channels, public sentiment can be whipped into a fury within mere moments, and not always with any effort to maintain fairness and accuracy.

Harvey Weinstein deserves the hell that is raining down upon him. He deserved the loss of his position in the company he co-founded with his brother, he deserved watching that company collapse into bankruptcy, he deserved being expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, he deserved the complete collapse of his personal and professional life, all of it.

But he also deserves a legal defense against the criminal charges he is facing.

The Harvard students who demanded Sullivan’s ouster are seemingly unable to separate the legal representation against the accusation of a crime from the crime itself. As Reason’s Robby Soave wrote:

This is a disaster. The administration has endorsed the ridiculous notion that serving as legal counsel for a person accused of sexual misconduct is itself a form of sexual misconduct, or at the very least contributes to sexual harassment on campus. It is no exaggeration to say that Khurana has undermined one of the most important principles of modern, enlightened justice. He should be ashamed of himself.

Harvard fed the monster of the outrage mob by abandoning Sullivan, and they seem satisfied, for now. But these student activists have now experienced the high of their success — Mudannayake told the New York Times the students were in a “very happy” mood and enjoying a “celebratory atmosphere” — and since they’ve been taught that this tactic works, what demands will they make next?
