Someone sure is confused, but it ain't who you think it is, KK

Apparently Katherine Kersten's poor widdwe bwain is aww confused - she just can't undewstand that consensual sex and rape are different things.

Advice, honey: don't presume our young men are as confused as you are, that's insulting to men.  These students knew exactly what they were saying, and prettymuch every adult other than you understands the difference between "yes" and "no."  Hint: their definitions are in the dictionary.

Flattery will get you everywhere

Our rotating student thought I was a postdoc ("because you're so knowledgeable!") :D

Which begs the question, "WHEN WILL THEY LET ME GRADUATE ALREADY?!"

BTW: Got a postdoc lined up.  I'm very excited - the city is great, the area I'll live in is great (got that lined up too), the PI and I get along well (we're both grumpy old men, except I'm 30 and female...details), the project is something completely different that what I do, or what I thought I'd be doing, but it's very exciting.  I am so ready to be done with this grad school bullshit.  Hopefully my committee lets me set a date at my meeting next week.
