Dogmata Ecclesiasties

buddy-jesus.jpg

Having walked to hundreds of religious services over the course of two years and having spent the last five years attending law school, I have come to realize that dogma is one of the most dangerous and ubiquitous ideological tools employed by people within society. For society to function as a unit, the vast majority of its members must be willing to use their brains to analyze enough of the right kinds of data to make informed decisions, especially within their communities and electoral systems. Critical thought is necessary when analyzing these types of data, which is why dogma is so dangerous. A dogma is the kind of idea which those who hold to be true are unwilling to seriously consider any alternatives.

While the most dangerous forms of dogma are found in the religious and political realms, dogma can always creep in where ever people are unwilling to critically think about any specific subject. Even in groups that seem to be above such intellectual laziness, dogma abounds. While most dogmata can be clearly identified within our primary social groupings, plenty of dogmata go unnoticed as a result of of them coming from our subconscious behaviors. The dogmata of popularity, though tough to pin down compared to those of politics or religion, are present nonetheless.

The primary dogma of popularity, “ALWAYS strive to BE popular”, feeds all of the other dogmata associated with the acquiring of that elusive social capital. This can manifest in various ways, as everyone has different standards for what it means to be popular and among whom, but strive we so often do. While there is nothing wrong with desiring to make friends, far too often people are willing to jeopardize the social capital of others if it means increasing their own. This is especially true when that “other” is not a part of the popular group.

The idea that someone perceived to be a victim is to be fully trusted while the individual perceived as the offender must be distrusted is a common dogma related to this dogma of popularity. Again, our standards differ on when and why someone should be perceived as a victim or an offender, which makes it similarly difficult to track the way these dogmata manifest. Other difficulties with this dogma are that hardly anyone is ever likely to have all of the facts straight and very few people are actively trying to harm others in the first place. This means that most “victimizations” are unintentional. That’s not to say there aren’t plenty of reckless people out there or that people are always imagining harms, but just because someone has a negative reaction to another person’s behavior, doesn’t mean there was malicious intent. Unfortunately these popularity dogmata often go unchecked by those who are able to recognize them, usually because even these folks simply don’t want to risk taking a hit to their own social capital.

Coming to law school, especially in the NW during this technological renaissance we’re in, I thought I would find plenty of fellow legal minds courageous enough to be dedicated to advancing social justice. Sadly, it seems I was mistaken. Lovely platitudes about the subject are found all over campus at Willamette University and in the language of its students, but debt and desire seem to have driven even this student body toward self-centered attitudes and intellectual apathy. I was even falsely accused of staring at school employee Evann Zuckerman AFTER she clearly UNfriended me instead over our interaction online. The school administrators took her word without even examining the evidence and slanderously reinforced her false claims by banning me from the school cafe and attempting to drag me through a separate disciplinary hearing over separate, innocuous reasons. I currently have an investigation open with the Office of Civil Rights against Willamette University for the reverse discrimination they have perpetrated against me by refusing to properly investigate these claims.

Here’s how the few friends from the Willamette National Lawyers Guild Student Chapter who even bothered to speak up recently reacted when I broached the subject:

Tarron Anderson Apparently you don’t know how I treat pretentious people who only comment when their narrative is affected. I have given you more responses than you deserve. I talk about inequality and systemic racism but also talk about accountability. Especially personal accountability. The world is fucked up and the there are many boogie men and women out there. As individuals we have to be introspective of our relationship with society. You feel wronged and young people felt creeped out. Regardless whether right or wrong something you did set off alarms. As a white male with privilege you may find it difficult to comprehend how your society turned on you. Here is my thought, who gives a fuck? There are populations who will never be afforded the opportunity you have squandered because you refuse to wear a suit or don’t understand how you creeped out undergrads. So a bit of advice that someone once gave me. Get over your fucking self. With that, good luck, graduate, and move on. Focus on your kids and the rest of your life.

Erik Kulick

Erik Kulick I don’t only comment on things when only my narrative is affected, but even if I had, what the fuck does it have to do with a person coming on to your wall and talking about a subject you invited conversation on by posting a dumb ass racist meme in the first place? It’s kind of like when Juliana Posted that politically charged image in the school group she created, criticizing the university no less, and then ironically had the nerve to start criticizing me for political comments after she and her friends got a good round of shit talking in about the university.

It was this thread, which I posted via comment above, which set off the school paper/bistro employee to allege that I had stared at her AFTER she friended me and she and all her friends were gawking at me!

Thanks to society’s propensity to always trust purported victims so long as they’re non-white cis males, she convinced all her long time coworkers that I had stared at her. Even though such a behavior should always be seen as a non-offense on its own, it still bothered enough of them for them to rally behind her. For what? How could any of them have suffered, even if there had been staring going on? I will gladly take accountability for anything I’ve done or not done in my life. I’m just waiting for you or someone else to let me in on what that is in this case.

Is it because I’m white that you assume I’m privileged per se? Just because I haven’t experienced society turning on me for my race or gender, doesn’t mean I haven’t had society treat me like shit for significant periods of my lifetime for different, still unnecessary reasons. Just because there are people with less opportunity than me, doesn’t make me privileged either. I have been as poor or poorer than the majority of Americans that I meet for much of my life, so again, I’m not sure where this default privilege you see hanging off me is coming from.

So that’s what this comes down to? You think I haven’t achieved success yet because I don’t like wearing male suit styles? I have worn proper dresses to interviews and legal functions of all sorts, including court, because that IS how I identify. Whether or not my gender matches precisely the type of people your or Jonathan think deserve to wear it is irrelevant.

    The woman who falsely accused football star Brian Banks of raping her is being forced to pay big time.

    A judge has ordered that the woman pay $2.6 million to Banks for ruining his life with false allegations. The lies caused him to lose numerous scholarship offers to college and also led to a prison sentence of over five years.

    Wanetta Gibson told lies to authorities when she accused Banks of assaulting her when the two attended Long Beach Poly High, where Banks was both a student and football star.

    After the conviction, the girl sued the school district and received $1.5 million. The conviction was overturned when Gibson was secretly recorded admitting that she made the whole thing up.

    Years later, Gibson confessed and Banks was released. The woman is being forced to repay a $750,000 settlement to the school, plus attorneys fees, interest and another $1 million in punitive damages.

    Andrea Risolo Of course false reporting is harmful to victims, but this is not the same thing and it’s actually pretty offensive to equate your situation to this one. Do you not see that you are now continuing the harassment online? You need to calm down and let this go. Sorry you can’t go to one coffee shop anymore.

    Erik Kulick How am I continuing harassment? It’s not my fault Evann Zoe Zuckerman still has her settings set so that FB automatically tags her. Also, addressing harms that one has befallen by an abusive person like herself is never harassment. That sounds like you are victim blaming.

    But why should I bother explaining something like this who hasn’t gone through the necessary training to understand such complex subjects. After all, it was because of this harassment that I received that the school is finally making sure that the person it employs to deal with Title IX issues will be legally *trained* from this point forward.

    It is degrees of the exact same thing because it’s abuse of process regarding abusive behavior. Additionally, the harassment I was subjected to by her false claims goes far beyond access to one shitty little high school-minded cafe. As a result of that treatment, the school attempted to help her drag my name through the mud by instituting a disciplinary hearing which was intended on kicking me out of school before I had the chance to pay for their grossly overpriced education. Thankfully the Office of Civil Rights has enough educated folks around to see how poorly y’all have handled it at Willamette University. It’s also interesting, the school told me that I wouldn’t be able to qualify for more loans this semester, but after they received this from the OCR, I magically had loan money!

    Just because you and Celine (a kid at least smart enough to understand how to change her FB settings) are friends with my harasser, doesn’t mean you have to keep helping her harass me on-line.

    See y’all next semester!

    call me “her” one more goddamn time. I use “they” pronouns. Enough with the misgendering.

    Also, I’ve been trained fairly extensively in Title IX, and I still think you’re behaving in a way that’s unacceptably aggressive, so two can play the “no one else is qualified to talk about this except me” game.

    You also have a ***choice*** to tag someone. If you don’t fully understand how FB technology works that’s cool, technology is weird sometimes, but here’s how it works: When FB wants to automatically tag someone, you can either hit “enter” which automatically inserts the tag, or you can press the space bar to keep typing without tagging. Now that you know this, go ahead and un-tag Evann, and don’t tag her in the future, and we can avoid having this whole conversation again!

    Cool! You have training too!?!

    I never said you had to interact with me, and there in lies the rub between the kinds of false harassment that gets treated like true harassment and true harassment itself: If someone looks at someone, they haven’t harassed them. If they stare at that person, they haven’t harassed them either. It takes interaction for harassment to take place. Harassment is a verb, m’kay?

    Now stop harassing me, and make like Evann, a kid who finally learned how to use her FB in a way that wasn’t intentionally baiting other people to “harass” they (singular), thereby bringing on the wrath of you bullies…

    Let’s look at the many things that make this offensive, also: First, you have been found responsible for behaving in ways that aren’t acceptable and make others feel unsafe. That’s your bad. Universities are notoriously bad at deciding in a complainant’s favor, so really, the fact that they decided against you makes it particularly clear that you probably should just re-evaluate the way you treat women instead of continuing to harass them and make them feel MORE unsafe. Fuck you for thinking you’re entitled to more of Evann’s time just so you can make her feel unsafe.

    Second, do you seriously think that going to jail is just as bad as not being able to go to one specific coffee shop anymore? How are these things at all equivalent?

    Third, the number of false accusations is fucking miniscule. You are actively discrediting all rape victims’ stories by trying to get others to believe that false accusations happen frequently. They don’t.

    Fourth, back to the coffee shop thing. You have your own coffee shop at the law school. Go to there. Or go to any number of other coffee shops in the very caffeinated city of Salem. Or graduate and stop frequenting school coffee shops entirely. Move on.

    Erik Kulick Go back and check my other reply to see why these claims you’re making against me are false.

    I never said what I went through is as bad as jail. That is an assumption y’all are making, b/c you obviously can’t see when the comparison is among degrees of the same kinds of behavior, not disparate subjects.

    So you admit the allegations were false, yet feel the need to continue harassing ME!?!

    I’ll see y’all in the Bistro soon, as the claims were obviously false by your own admission, and therefore unnecessary!

    Erik Kulick Why else would my dean inform me that they are, from now on, going to have someone competent managing the Title IX department instead of Jackie Balzer, the head of HR who refused to do her job so that she could help the “victim” harasser? Why else would I *suddenly* have access to loan money necessary for me to complete my degree, immediately AFTER the Office of Civil Rights sent this letter to me? Are you having that hard of a time piecing things together? Y’all lost, get over it, kiddos.

    Kelen Kaiser Erik Kulick, so they can keep enrollment up (a win for them, not you), you can get deeper into debt (more money for them, not you), and find yourself having a hard time getting employment after graduation because this is all on the public record when would be employers google your name (no downside for them, they already got your money). So who is “winning” again because it clearly isn’t you?

    Erik Kulick I know, these kids couldn’t tell the difference between an assertion and the reasoning behind it even if it bit them in the ass…

    Erik Kulick Says more students coming on to MY wall to harass me…

    I’m sorry that y’all are hell bent on preserving social order for your childish selves to the point where you’d get yourselves involved in this abhorrent behavior, but if you keep it up, I will be including all of you in my lawsuit.

    You’ve all been warned.

    Erik Kulick Sure, but harassment isn’t a public right, Juliana. Thanks for playing…?

    Why did you get Elize to write that damn article anyway? Do you not know how to do research, or are you a coward who refuses to admit when they’re wrong, especially if it means looking bad in front of your little clique? Either way, sounds like you’ve got some changes to make if you want to feel qualified to spend your time trolling people and taking shit about them.

    Erik Kulick Kelen Kaiser Are you struggling this hard to understand differences, Kelen? Tagging a person to ensure that you minimize the frequency that you talk behind people’s backs is most certainly not the same as getting a bunch of your fellow students/friends to repeatedly harass another student, even after that student repeatedly informed those students that he finds their obviously demeaning comments as offensive contact amounting to harassment.
