LOLLERS at the email forward I just got!

The d00der connected all the dots.

Weird thing: it's written like a formal complaint.

(A)

It started as a rumor on JuicyCampus: Sexandtheivy.com blogger Lena Chenâs new beau had the name of "Patrick Hamm."

But then Lena Chen, herself, unwittingly posed photographic evidence that the named man was indeed the same "Guy" sheâs been blogging about, of late (in her April 5th tumblr entry on thechicktionary.com). The hair style of the man on a bed next to her (reading the text "Critical Theory, Marxism, and Modernity") was unique, and compared closely to pictures of Hamm appearing on his Harvard profile-page. Links to the pics:

http://hidebehind.com/9DE1DA

Picture of Patrick Hamm (no glasses)

http://www.wjh.harvard.edu/soc/gs/Hamm_Patrick

http://hidebehind.com/668A6D

Picture of Patrick Hamm (glasses)

Further evidence quickly fell into place, compliments of Chenâs obsessive remarks on her tumblr (thechicktionary.com):

*April 5: "Itâs like ten blocks uptown, and by âuptownâ, I donât mean Billy Joel"âmy non-American lover whose cultural reference highly amused me; April 6: International Center for Photography. The German headline reads "War against civilization", which unironically implies America represents all of civilization.

Fact: Patrick Hamm is German-born, which explains Lena's sudden capacity to parse the German, "Krieg gegen die Zivilisation"

*April 3: Okay, the Guy is out for his run (a fucking three hour run) and I am sitting in his apartment.

Fact: Patrick Hamm is training for the Boston Marathon http://www.active.com/donate.TEAMESPLANADE/patrickhamm

(B)

Normally, this would just be grist for the rumor-mill, except for a few facts:

1) Patrick Hamm (Yale â04) is a graduate student and teaching fellow (TF) for the Sociology department. Lena Chen is an undergraduate major in that department. This flirts with a violation of Harvardâs rules on

"Unprofessional Conduct Between Individuals of Different University Status" (http://www.fas.harvard.edu/home/administration/sexual_harass_guide.html)

2) Chenâs thechicktionary.com provides still more episodes which cross the line into unethical behavior: Hamm

a) "tried to convince [her] to stop by his office for some post-dinner nookie" (April 3),

b) "help[ed] her hunt down fake ID places since [she] lost [hers] in Greece" (April 2),

c) violated substance-related laws: "he is not even fazed by my underage-ness and the fact that I have to deal with pesky things like drinking laws" (April 2), "This conversation only makes sense in context. When high[:] '[Hamm]: Get your fingers out of your vagina! Weâre eating dinner.' [Chen]: Itâs not my fault Iâm Chinese."

3) The picture morps from ethically bleary to morally eerie when one reads from Chenâs March 21st blog at sexandtheivy.com. From "Nights and Mornings":

http://sexandtheivy.com/2008/03/21/nights-and-mornings

Practically asleep again, I started to murmur something about not being in the mood.

"You what?" [Hamm] demanded fiercely. I jolted from my haze.

His hand was back around my neck now, tighter this time. I hesitated before answering.

"Iâm tired,â I said carefully. âI donât feel like having sex."

"You donât feel like it?"

[Hamm] made it sound like the most inadequate explanation heâd ever heard. I shook my head. I felt like a girl.

"If you donât feel like it," [Hamm] continued. "Then you shouldnât have woken me up by rubbing your ass against my cock and making out with me."

[Hamm] had a wicked look on his face, the same one he had when he dragged me around his living room by the hair and forced my head down on his cock so hard that I had to strain to catch my breath. He didnât have to say a word and I knew I was fucked. I was going to be fucked.

"Iâm sorry," I whispered.

His grip tightened....and I started to gasp for breath. Even though sex had been the very last thing on my mind when we went to bed, I couldnât help getting wet from the feel of his hands around my neck. By the time he forced open my mouth with his cock, I was eager to spread my legs for him. He always pushed it a little deeper than what I could comfortably take. He was more than halfway down my throat when I couldnât stand it anymore and had to pull away. He asked me if I wanted him to fuck me and I nodded yes."

In light of the age discrepancy between Hamm (26) and Chen (20); in light of the power-differential between Hamm (a TF) and Chen (a UG); in light of Chenâs past blogging of her involvement in mental-health therapy, itâs not out of line to wonder: Was Chenâs "consent" meaningful in response to Hammâs physical coercion?"

(C)

Lena Chen has a fine sense of humor and a gift for writing. Sheâs chosen to blog about her intimate life, which is her right.

But Hammâs case is a different beast. A more mature, higher statused, older man appears to have taken advantage of a young, mentally vulnerable woman who pursues a degree in Hammâs own department.

The situation calls for reflection, for investigation, and (if necessary), adjudication.

Subject: Time to clear up the facts

My name is Patrick Hamm, and I am the person whose private life you have been so thoroughly analyzing in this forum. I first became aware of the discussion threads on autoadmit.com/xoxohth.com a few weeks ago and have been following them via Google Alert ever since. What you proudly term XO detective work the feeding of my name into search engines like Google and Zaba has produced a series of alleged facts about my person and involvement with Lena that, once misconstrued and taken out of context, allowed you to construct an image in which I violated Harvards rules on professional conduct and took advantage of a young, mentally vulnerable woman. The situation became somewhat of a nuisance when your crap started showing up near the top of Google searches for my name (accomplished via repeated thread bumping on autoadmit/xoxoth), but given the obscurity of these discussion boards and the small number of thread participants, I was ultimately not concerned. In late May, a user by the clever pseudonym of Protagonist Hiro (protagonisthiro@yahoo.com) started sending anonymous emails to my colleagues on Harvards graduate student council and two professors in my department (the director of graduate studies and the department chair, whose contact details had previously been posted in one of the discussion threads).

Protagonist Hiro then proceeded to send me the following two, thoughtfully crafted emails:

#1

Subject line: ethics, eh?

something tells me your yale education left you a little short, buddy. far as I know, fucking undergrads is grounds for getting your ass kicked out, and the evidence is on the internet. any comment?

#2

Subject line: undergrad pussy

so now we know how that chick keeps up her gpa. what's your excuse? forgot to check the ad board rules?

I responded with the following email, which has since been posted on NowPublic and autoadmit/xoxoth (and subsequently deconstructed by the excuse my political incorrectness alarmingly retarded user Good Stuff! Keep atop of it!):

Something tells me that you're the one who should be questioning the quality of your education (wherever you may have obtained it). If you had actually taken the time to read Harvard's regulations, you would have noticed that they are very specific on the implications of instructors getting romantically or sexually involved with current students (i.e. disciplinary investigation), but when it comes to relationships that take place outside the instructional context, they simply warn that such relationships may "lead to difficulties" without threatening any sort of formal action. I'm glad you prefaced your comment with "far as I know", since it seems that you really don't know too much at all. Also, assuming that you possess even a modicum of intelligence, you must realize that a graduate student dating an undergrad is hardly an uncommon sight at any university.

Which gets us to what you consider "evidence on the internet" material that Lena deliberately posted on her blog, knowing full well that there's nothing illegal or even unethical about sleeping with me.

Then you also make the presumptuous claim that you now "know how that chick [Lena] keeps up her GPA". Lena and I didn't start going out until months after our last class together, and while I have no intention to divulge her academic record, I can assure you that her performance in my classes was far from stellar.

Now on to you. Bracketing the fact that you lack the balls to send me these messages from your personal email account, one has to wonder why you care enough about the lives of complete strangers to contact them with your moralizing crap. You can barely put together a complete sentence (yes, I realize this is an ad hominem attack), yet you feel entitled to ask me for an "excuse" for behavior that doesn't even concern you, and that, more importantly, you are in no position to understand or evaluate. I don't know you personally, so I can only speculate about your motivations for writing me, but here are some possible explanations that come to mind:

1. You know either me or Lena and hold some kind of personal grudge against one of us (in which case you're simply a pathetic coward for not confronting us directly).

2. You are bored and frustrated with your own (sex) life, and hence feel resentful or jealous toward others who seem to have more fun with theirs (in which case the sending of anonymous, implicitly threatening emails again makes you a pathetic coward).

3. You are pathologically opinionated and like to have a moral judgment on everything (in which case you may very well be a Harvard student).

Again, these are pure speculations on my part, but the bottom line remains: this is none of your fucking business, and you should probably consider getting a life. By the way, I'm not your buddy.

Patrick Hamm

Protagonist Hiro replied with another linguistic achievement:

Here in America, Patrick, you're not supposed to force sex on undergrads that you teach, get them fake ID's, get high with them, tell them what clothes to wear, need I go on?

You're 28. She's 20. And she's blogged plenty about her mental issues. You're abusing your power for easy sex . . . Ethics? My hairy fucking asshole.

[partial and out-of-context reproduction of Lenas blog entry at http://sexandtheivy.com/2008/03/21/nights-and-mornings/]

My reply (not posted anywhere yet, as far as I can tell):

Your lesson on American ethics comes off as somewhat insincere, given that your preferred leisure activity seems to be the anonymous dissemination of defamatory allegations about total strangers.

I suppose I don't need to alert you to the fact that in your most recent email you chose to completely ignore my reply to your prior message, and move on to a different issue. (I take this to mean that you have nothing to say in defense of your unsubstantiated earlier claims.) As for your new accusations, you have established that there is an age difference between Lena and me, and that she has previously blogged about depression and mental health therapy. So far, so good. Then you go ahead and present what you consider evidence of me "abusing [my] power for easy sex" a passage from one of Lena's blog entries (posted March 21), detailing an episode of sexual role-play involving Lena and me. In addition to taking said passage completely out of context, you fail to mention that the original entry was prefaced by the following disclaimer, which makes it perfectly clear that the activities described do not constitute sexual assault:

"Disclaimer: The following is completely consensual. It is not rape. I do not endorse rape. The guy in the following entry does not endorse rape. There is a difference between aggressive sex and sexual assault. I really do not think a disclaimer is necessary for this to be clear, but since so many commenters have expressed concern for my well-being, I thought I'd assure everyone that I'm not being abused on a regular basis."

In response to additional concerns on the part of readers, Lena furthermore posted the following entry on March 29:

"Look, guys. Quit equating aggressive sex with rape. I am used to having my bedroom conduct judged (even though no one is in any position to judge me), but I do not appreciate the implication that I'm encouraging anything but consensual intercourse.

The safe word is "elephant". If I had wanted him to stop, I would've used it."

Now maybe you simply didn't see the disclaimer and subsequent explicatory post; given the thoroughness with which you have otherwise "researched" your smear campaign, however, this seems exceedingly improbable. Maybe you did read the disclaimers but felt that they could not be trusted, given Lena's allegedly unstable mental health; even if the latter were the case (which it most certainly is not), as someone who clearly possesses no professional background in mental health, your allegations would amount to no more than the speculations of an unqualified layperson. This leaves one remaining explanation: complete ineptitude on your part, coupled with the specific intent to harm my reputation and career. This would explain why you decided to send emails to my professors and friends on the graduate student council, when doing so clearly amounts to libel. Limited intelligence and malicious intent would also illuminate why, if you actually gave a rat's ass about Lena's well-being, you didn't simply send her an email along the lines of: "I'm a concerned reader of your blog. Are you in an abusive relationship?" My earlier suspicion that you might be a Harvard student was premature at any rate.

With that, I would like to remind you again that my relationship with Lena is none of your business, and moreover urgently advise you to stop spreading defamatory information on the internet and among my professors and friends.

Patrick Hamm

Lenas Tumblr entries (www.thechicktionary.com) of the past weeks people here have clearly read them in detail should make it perfectly and unmistakably clear that my involvement with Lena is in no way abusive. Now some of you might object to what Lena and I do in the bedroom and the fact that she chooses to blog about it. This is your prerogative. You may even go so far as to wish that I burn in Hell after Lena kills [me] in a murder/suicide (email from truth033003@aol.com on June 5). But this does not entitle you to take passages from Lenas blog out of context, misinterpret and change them, ignore explicit disclaimers, fabricate facts and then allege power abuse and sexual assault.

The defamation of my name in obscure web forums is a somewhat annoying but ultimately benign affair (especially if conducted with such utter incompetence) deliberately spreading false information that could harm my reputation and career is libel. Protagonist Hiro, for one, was not wise enough to conceal the senders IP address in his (I judge from the hairy ass reference that were dealing with a male) emails, and is presumably also unaware that a simple court order would force his ISP to release his identity. However, given the level of intellectual depth displayed in his emails, I suppose this shouldnt come as a surprise to anyone.

Im sure at least one of you tools will now feel the urge to carry out another witty (read: moronic) line-by-line dissection of my post. I suggest you save yourselves the time and mental energy (your supply of the latter seems limited enough as it is) and leave me alone from now on.

Then you go ahead and present what you consider evidence of me "abusing [my] power for easy sex" a passage from one of Lena's blog entries (posted March 21), detailing an episode of sexual role-play involving Lena and me. In addition to taking said passage completely out of context, you fail to mention that the original entry was prefaced by the following disclaimer, which makes it perfectly clear that the activities described do not constitute sexual assault:

"Disclaimer: The following is completely consensual. It is not rape. I do not endorse rape. The guy in the following entry does not endorse rape. There is a difference between aggressive sex and sexual assault. I really do not think a disclaimer is necessary for this to be clear, but since so many commenters have expressed concern for my well-being, I thought I'd assure everyone that I'm not being abused on a regular basis."

In response to additional concerns on the part of readers, Lena furthermore posted the following entry on March 29:

"Look, guys. Quit equating aggressive sex with rape. I am used to having my bedroom conduct judged (even though no one is in any position to judge me), but I do not appreciate the implication that I'm encouraging anything but consensual intercourse.

The safe word is "elephant". If I had wanted him to stop, I would've used it."

Now maybe you simply didn't see the disclaimer and subsequent explicatory post; given the thoroughness with which you have otherwise "researched" your smear campaign, however, this seems exceedingly improbable. Maybe you did read the disclaimers but felt that they could not be trusted, given Lena's allegedly unstable mental health; even if the latter were the case (which it most certainly is not), as someone who clearly possesses no professional background in mental health, your allegations would amount to no more than the speculations of an unqualified layperson. This leaves one remaining explanation: complete ineptitude on your part, coupled with the specific intent to harm my reputation and career. This would explain why you decided to send emails to my professors and friends on the graduate student council, when doing so clearly amounts to libel. Limited intelligence and malicious intent would also illuminate why, if you actually gave a rat's ass about Lena's well-being, you didn't simply send her an email along the lines of: "I'm a concerned reader of your blog. Are you in an abusive relationship?" My earlier suspicion that you might be a Harvard student was premature at any rate.

With that, I would like to remind you again that my relationship with Lena is none of your business, and moreover urgently advise you to stop spreading defamatory information on the internet and among my professors and friends.

Lenas Tumblr entries (www.thechicktionary.com) of the past weeks people here have clearly read them in detail should make it perfectly and unmistakably clear that my involvement with Lena is in no way abusive. Now some of you might object to what Lena and I do in the bedroom and the fact that she chooses to blog about it. This is your prerogative. You may even go so far as to wish that I burn in Hell after Lena kills [me] in a murder/suicide (email from truth033003@aol.com on June 5). But this does not entitle you to take passages from Lenas blog out of context, misinterpret and change them, ignore explicit disclaimers, fabricate facts and then allege power abuse and sexual assault.

The defamation of my name in obscure web forums is a somewhat annoying but ultimately benign affair (especially if conducted with such utter incompetence) deliberately spreading false information that could harm my reputation and career is libel. Protagonist Hiro, for one, was not wise enough to conceal the senders IP address in his (I judge from the hairy ass reference that were dealing with a male) emails, and is presumably also unaware that a simple court order would force his ISP to release his identity. However, given the level of intellectual depth displayed in his emails, I suppose this shouldnt come as a surprise to anyone.

Im sure at least one of you tools will now feel the urge to carry out another witty (read: moronic) line-by-line dissection of my post. I suggest you save yourselves the time and mental energy (your supply of the latter seems limited enough as it is) and leave me alone from now on."

This does confirm that academics usually get ugly girls; I'm glad I moved away from that direction in my career. Otherwise, I might also be forced to settle for a girl like Lena.
