I'm glad that MIT has the courage to dissociate themselves from Jeffrey Epstein and RMS for normalizing the sexually harassing young women. These things were not okay, shouldn't have been suffered in silence, and I hope we can all clear the air and heal.

Now can someone plz call out the Ivy League, Seven Sisters, etc, for not dissociating themselves from their own problematic heroes (Trumps, Clintons, etc) who have way more power than RMS ever did.

It should not be hard to both listen to marginalized people and also get that the scope of the problem is much bigger than individual problematic humans who can be called out without fear of retribution.

Like... Facebook literally evolved out of Harvard hookup/entitlement culture and a Zuck being an abusive creep who didn't care about people's boundaries, and is lauded for it constantly because capitalism. It's so gross. Privileged white boys aren't intrinsically evil; it's just that privileged white boys who want to be evil have a hell of an easier time doing so.

Negligence is not the same as being evil. Not educating yourself when it's easy to do so is negligence, not evil. It still hurts the same no matter what the intent is. But it also hurts to see negligence get punished and evil flourish.
