The ivory tower

Following the reaction of Prof Hopkins to Larry Summers' "sexist" remarks, Will Wilkinson has coined a new verb that has an attractive ring to it:

pull a Hopkins intr. v.

1. to become faint or nauseated upon hearing a statement contrary to one's ideology or dogma.
2. to leave the room, usually dramatically, because of such faintness or nausea.
3. to feign such faintness or nausea as part of a ploy to establish or reinforce a social convention about the limits of acceptable discourse.
e.g.: "I pulled a Hopkins when I heard Bob say that, even though it has never worked, communism is 'a good idea.'"


Historical source:

"I just couldn't breathe because this kind of bias makes me physically ill. I would've either blacked out or thrown up." - Professor Nancy Hopkins, in response to Harvard President Larry Summer's conjecture that women are scarce in certain mathematical disciplines because of genetic differences between the sexes.

The best reaction to the debacle comes from Prof Steven Pinker who has written perhaps the definitive book on human nature to date:
Look, the truth cannot be offensive. Perhaps the hypothesis is wrong, but how would we ever find out whether it is wrong if it is “offensive” even to consider it? People who storm out of a meeting at the mention of a hypothesis, or declare it taboo or offensive without providing arguments or evidence, don’t get the concept of a university or free inquiry.

preteen underage video could feel him rising, and could feel his hands on her preteen 8 15 pic as he guided her to lay on her stomach.
Shifting her position, Jack pulled on her hips, raising her ass up into the air,
his hands carressing the cheeks of her buttocks and then grasping her hips firmly, his hardness pressing once more into her warm folds.
She moaned as he slammed suddenly into her, the motion starting a chain reaction that continued as he violently pounded into her willing cunt.
His fingers gripped into her hips harshly, pulled her toward him, and as he thrust into her she felt herself propelled in the other direction,
only to be pulled quickly back. Her breasts swinging freely, preteen angels felt a tingling pain in her nipples as her breasts bounced in time to his thrusts.
She moaned as she felt him tense, arching her back and trying to further expose her sex, trying to take as much of him into her as possible.
To the side, in the mirror, she could see his figure above her, his head tilted back as he groaned his pleasure.
Emily.... Oh, God... Emily!
"Come, Jack... Please, Come..." preteen hidden pic pleaded, and she found that the words were more for her than for encouragement.
She wanted to feel the hot rush of his seed, wanted to drink it inside herself and hear his moans of pleasure.
Emily... Emily...
He slammed almost painfully into her, and preteen sex pic galleries found herself nearly screaming outloud at the wonderful abuse.
He filled her so completely that she felt nearly impaled; stretched her so intensely that she feared to be torn.
His fingers dug into her flesh, and she could hear him slapping against her as his moans began to rise.

My sister and I love each other, but we fight constantly. We're always saying something rude about one other's hair, clothes, whatever, it doesn't matter, we quarrel. It's getting to the point were free celebrity sex clip will put in ear plugs if he's home with us for too long.
The other night, we thought Daddy might turn us over on his knee like he did when we were younger. We were in the bathroom, standing side by side. I looked over and up at my sister; I hated the fact that she was taller than me. She stands five foot seven inches tall, and I a mere five foot even. I think I also resented the fact that she was older than me. We're two years apart, she's 21 and I'm 19. We both have red hair, blue eyes, and freckles, some people have mistaken us for twins, but we're a year apart. Our bodies are different, she doesn't have much in the way of boobs, 36A, is all her cup size is, and I tease her about it all the time. Me, my boobs are a 36D. She doesn't have much in the way of hips either, very narrow she is, and I tell her she looks like a boy, which pisses her off. I got the better body entirely, I have a very shapely figure, and no one could ever mistake me for a boy. I was telling her that she needed to change her outfit, or buy clothes that fit her better. All her clothes drape o
ff of her like potato sacks; she was yelling at me, telling me that I dressed like a slut and I should be more conservative, when free childporn gallery burst through the door.
"That's enough! I want to hear no more from either one of you! You are driving me insane! You two are too old for this!"
My sister's first reaction is to get defensive and I let her go first.
"Dad, she started it!"
I looked up at Daddy sheepishly.
"No I didn't Daddy. I was just being honest. I can't help it if she can't stand to hear some criticism."
Daddy looked down at me. He knew what I was doing, but he always sided with me.
"You aren't dressed very well at all, free cross stitch patterns."
"You always side with her!"
She turned and gave me a mean look and I stuck my tongue out at her.
"Jessica! That's enough from you too."
I put my eyes down and nodded my head.
"Sorry Daddy I won't do it again."
My sister humphed my way and I moved past her. I stood on my tiptoes and kissed Daddy's cheek. "Sorry to make you angry Daddy."
He patted me on the head and smiled down.
"It's okay Darling. I just wish you two girls would get along."
"I'll try real hard Daddy."
I gave him another kiss, and as I got back behind him I stuck my tongue out at my sister again.
"Daddy! Look! Look what she's doing!"
Daddy didn't turn around.
"That's enough free digimon hentai pic! Get on out of here and go to bed!"
The bickering continued of course, until there was a break when Eliza was out with her boyfriend. I was in my room, reading and listen to music, actually enjoying the fact that she wasn't at home. I really hated fighting with her, but I couldn't ever stop myself from doing it. I heard the front door close and Eliza run up the stairs. I also heard Daddy yelling.
"Eliza, is everything alright?"
"Fine, Daddy, everything's fine!"
From the tone of her voice I knew she was okay. So, I went back to reading. I only got a few lines into the book when my door burst open and in came Eliza looking all flushed and fluttered.
"What's wrong? What happened?"
I fought with my sister a lot but I felt protective over her as well.
"Nothing. Well, okay something happened, but it wasn't wrong."
"What? You lost me somewhere in there."
"Oh Jess, it was fuckin' great!"
My eyes widened, my sister doesn't speak like that.
"Okay, what was it? C'mon you gotta tell me!"
"I did it."
I watched Eliza go to the door, check the hall, and then close the door completely.
"You did what?"
"You know!"
"No, I don't. What did you do?"
"Don't make me mad! Not tonight!"
"I'm not trying to make you mad; I don't know what the hell it is you're talking about."
"I had sex."
"Oh, that it?"
"What do you mean, is that it?"
"Well, by the way you came in here I thought maybe you'd had the shit fucked outta ya or something. Just having sex isn't anything special."
"You've had sex before?"
