Mischievous Monica



MY LAST blog post (here) ended with Duke professor Jaybird O’Berski appearing to have engaged in sexual harassment of Junot Diaz-accuser Monica Byrne via twitter. At least, Monica charged him with such, providing an example.

But what if the sexual language he engaged in had also been engaged in by her– even encouraged by her? Apparently they had quite a few lusty conversations– on twitter and by email.

Below, a sampling of O’Berski’s twitter feed, taken from exchanges with Monica.

(Does this throw light on the other incidents– those outlined in my previous post? Judge for yourself.)


Is there much more to say?
