I don’t get this argument as to how Bates College probably has an internal candidate for its 3-year lectureship in German and Russian, so it’s OK for them to put up such a job ad.
No, people, it is still not OK.
Let’s say Bates College has an internal candidate who agrees to be spit and defecated on as part of this lectureship. Let’s say this poor loser agrees to such work conditions of his own free will. Is it OK for Bates to advertise this kind of a position?
And if you see a difference between being spit and defecated on and a 3-year lectureship in German and Russian at Bates, then there is something wrong with your vision. Bates College is shitting on all of us right now. It deserves a shitstorm to hit it right back.
