A female professor at Georgetown University came under fire after saying that Republican senators involved in the Brett Kavanaugh hearing “deserve miserable deaths” and went on to detail what should be done with their corpses after such deaths.
What are the details?
On Saturday, Georgetown University distinguished associate professor C. Christine Fair — who is politically outspoken on her Twitter feed — shared a video of Sen. Lindsey Graham speaking during Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing on Thursday.
According to Fair’s Twitter bio, the professor is a “[s]cholar of South Asian pol-mil affairs, inter-sectional feminist, pitbull apostle, scotch devotee, nontheist, [and] resister.”
She wrote, “Look at thus [sic] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps.”
She concluded the graphic tweet with “Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”

According to a Sunday post by Campus Reform, the professor responded to a request for comment in a very lengthy missive on her blog, “Tenacious Hellp***y.”
In her extensive response, Fair wrote, “There is a war going on against women and you, and your despicable herd of so-called journalists seeking to protect male privilege and shame women for our victimization or our rage are complicit in this war.”
Fair added that she was not calling for violence against any senators — she was “merely speaking to what my spirituality says these vile souls deserve.”
Fair also detailed what she said was her own experience with sexual abuse, in which her uncle reportedly sexually abused her when she was in nursery school and only stopped when she was 13 years old.
Fair correlated this experience to the alleged experience of sexual assault that Christine Blasey Ford reportedly suffered at the hands of Kavanaugh during a high school party in the early ’80s.
Kavanaugh has categorically denied these allegations, and he and Ford testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. Not one of Kavanaugh’s accusers have alleged that he committed rape.
The Senate Judiciary Committee held a vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination on Friday, and decided to send the Kavanaugh vote to full Senate, asking that FBI conduct a one-week investigation into Ford’s accusations.
