Meanwhile, Over at Harvard

Like many on Titter, I’m saying “Huh? Wuh? What did I just read?”

Down the rabbit hole with only one side and nothing ggogleable.

What. An. Idiot.

I feel sorry for the law professor's ex wife, but the rest of them are idiots, narcissists, grifters, morons and worse. If the professor is, in fact, on the spectrum, that may explain some of his utterly bizarre behavior. If not he is an idiot savant who knows a lot about the law and absolutely nothing about human beings.

Spend any time on forums discussing parents or partners suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissism, or other Cluster B disorders, and you'll see all the major elements of this story* show up over and over again in other people's horror stories.

*Lying, threatening, fake suicide threats, harassing, stalking, faux victimhood.

And it is true that predators tend to be pretty good at spotting potential prey.

The same. The first paragraph was enough to understand the whole saga.
was in Tags Hardware in Cambridge, Massachusetts, near his home, when a young woman with long reddish-brown hair approached him to ask where she could find batteries. It was still very much winter, and, once the woman got his attention, he saw that underneath her dark woolen coat and perfectly tied scarf she was wearing a dress and a chic pair of boots — hardly typical weekend-errand attire in the New England college town. When he directed her to another part of the store, she changed the subject. “By the way, you’re very attractive,” he remembers her saying.
It is times like those where straight sorta-married guys could really use a gay wingman to help steer and keep them out of trouble. I can't count the number of times I've interrupted straight friends from making a poor error in judgement. :towel: All your PhDs aren't going to save you from human nature.

I read this yesterday and then rather wished I hadn't because it just made me feel sad and gross and I can manage that all on my own. And I agree, it's the kids and the ex-wife who I really feel for here.

Shit, sounds like the dude needed a leash, not a wingman. Divorced, but still living with a partner, with whom he's had two post-divorce children, in a vaguely non-monogamous relationship with a circle of "intense" friendships with other women. None of that's even a bad thing, necessarily, everyone consenting, but I read "entitled dude with boundary issues" between all those lines and no one's an easier mark than someone who believes they're entitled to anything.

And I don't really know why the ex-wife has stayed with him besides love is strange and housing is expensive.
