Paraphernalian on Why She's Leaving the Academy

From the trenches.  When the wound is fresh, as opposed to the mellow posts I've been writing.

Remember:  It Gets Better.

This is directly from Paraphernalian.  Click through to the blog.  It's a short post . . . . . .

Because the failures of a flawed system are not my personal failures.
Because I am tired of being made to feel like a failure because I have been failed by a flawed system.
Because doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is stupidity.
Because participating in a system that degrades, demeans, and disempowers you is masochism.
Because productivity for productivity’s sake is futility.
Because stupidity, masochism, and futility should not be rewarded.
Because obfuscation, elitism, arrogance, and self-righteousness should not be rewarded.
[Post goes on:  check it out].
