Big surprise; I'm sure Boston University is full of this also, as how else did AOC graduate with a degree in economics and only come out with a High School Home Economics level of understanding.

This has absolutely f all to do with lower IQ, as some here would love to believe. It has everything to do with patriarchy. This is not female professors demanding sex for grades/admissions from young male students, that's a fact. It's the same in job interviews as it is in university acceptances, as it is in grades. The culture allows men to harass younger women for sex in return for favours, and it's a power trip. And no need to be so frickin smug in this notion that life just isn't like this in the West. It isn't now, but it most definitely was until not many years ago. Weinstein et al are symptomatic of the last ebbs of this old culture. What undid it? Legislation and the implementation of the rule of law.
