itsbetterthananal: caramelitx: k but how fucked up us it for a prof to openly refer to a grad student TAing for her.. who seems to be a poc… as “the babysitter”……. Zitong was not our TA. her work and administration of this quiz was never referred to as babysitting outside of this email nor was she ever expected to actually “babysit” a bunch of 18-30yos while working on her PhD because guess what this email was a joke to make people chuckle and alleviate some stress as indicated by the fact that my professor was actually a young hispanic male referring to himself as mom and was originally giving the quiz himself but had an emergency the morning of, had to leave, everybody was stressed about what was going to happen and Zitong offered to help out last minute as an act of kindness. Being a TA was not her job, she was just one of his grad students (that class had no TA) so her being there to see the quiz go smoothly was more analagous to babysitting than a woman doing her job and being discredited and yall really love to make stretches without context : 2:22 PM View More Hi kiddies. As u know we have a quiz today. My grad student Zitong will administer it. Be nice to the babysitter. No horseplay. There are TV dinners in the freezer.

"Really?" Random Guy At Starbucks What are you working on?" "I'm writing an international relations paper on global politics." Cool! Are you studying to be a lawyer? Where do you go to school?" No, actually I'm studying engineering at MIT." Oh! So you're like a genius? But you seem so down to earth! Did you have some traumatizing childhood experience that brought you down to earth?" "How is that relevant?" With the questions you ask, you should be a lawyer. Wanna go have some fun?" Excuse me? I need to finish my paper." Random Guy At The Computers Context: At a cluster of MIT computers and printers. I was printing study materials. Hey! You look good! What are you doing here? Uhm, thanks. I'm headed to the library." What!? But you're wearing a dress!? Do you go to MIT?? How bout I take you out? "Yeah, I go to MIT... and I'm going to the library..." The PhD Grad Student So you're an engineering student?
