Lady professor at MIT gets the vapors over Larry Summers

George Will adds more on the strange affair of the grovelling Larry Summers and the girls:

professor Nancy Hopkins, the hysteric….who, hearing Summers, “felt I was going to be sick. My heart was pounding and my breath was shallow.” And, “I just couldn’t breathe because this kind of bias makes me physically ill.” She said that if she had not bolted from the room, “I would’ve either blacked out or thrown up.”

Is this the fruit of feminism? A women at the peak of the academic pyramid becomes theatrically flurried by an unwelcome idea and, like a Victorian maiden exposed to male coarseness, suffers the vapors and collapses on the drawing room carpet in a heap of crinolines until revived by smelling salts and the offending brute’s contrition.

As we asked before regarding Hopkins, can you imagine a man reacting this way? In any event, Summers’ ridiculous diversity grovel failed.
