Return of the Letter to a Young Social Justice Warrior: responding to Lamya H.’s: A personal history of Islamophobia in America

Seth Barrett Tillman, Return of the Letter to a Young Social Justice Warrior—responding to Lamya H.’s: A personal history of Islamophobia in America, Vox (January 15, 2016), http://ssrn.com/abstract=2719141
Tillman on Lamya H: “Your complaint is that your psychology professor was too—fat? I am so sorry. I can see that that would ruin your freshman experience. You were expecting? Luke Skywalker during his youth? Princess Leia Organa during her Jabba the Hutt years?”
As Professor Glenn Reynolds says: It’s Potemkin villages all the way down.” 

You really cannot make this stuff up.
