100% why I got the hell out of academia. That plus witnessing faculty verbally and professonally abuse a number of women in the department. Academia is an effing cesspool, even in Blue America, because this entitled privilege you identify also defines a whole lot of the white liberals who grow up to write articles telling us to "live with the virus" while they're working from the home they inherited and paying someone else to watch their spoiled kids.
Gods forbid they miss a social ritual and a mandatory post of perfect family pics on social media. Their children's lives are ruined. RUINED.
