University of Pennsylvania Prof Defends Jeffrey Toobin Over Lewd Behavior Incident

University of Pennsylvania Prof Defends Jeffrey Toobin Over Lewd Behavior Incident

“You might say that he shouldn’t have been pleasuring himself during a work call, but that’s his business rather than yours”

Do you think anyone from academia would rush out to defend Sean Hannity if he had been caught doing what Jeffrey Toobin did? I’m guessing no.

Penn prof defends Jeffrey Toobin’s Zoom mishap

University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education professor Jonathan Zimmerman argued that New Yorker columnist and CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin’s accidental self-exposure during a work video conference call was a “pseudo-scandal” rooted in Americans’ “collective unease with masturbation.”

Toobin was suspended from the New Yorker after he left his camera on while engaging in an act of self-pleasure during a Zoom meeting with colleagues. He said he believed that he had turned off his camera.

“We Americans love to talk — and talk, and talk — about sex,” noted Zimmerman while discussing the incident in the New York Daily News. “But there’s one topic that remains taboo, and Toobin is paying the price for it.”

Zimmerman argued that masturbation embodies the fears that arose as a result of the Enlightenment idea of the “autonomous individual, endowed with natural rights” — namely, the propensity for free individuals to “descend into corruption and vice.”

“You might say that he shouldn’t have been pleasuring himself during a work call, but that’s his business rather than yours,” said Zimmerman, noting that Toobin’s exposure was not intentional. “Inadvertently, he let the rest of us know about it. And now we can’t forgive him for it.”

Zimmerman concluded his argument by noting that most Americans masturbate: “News flash: Toobin masturbates. But I’m guessing that you do the same, dear reader. Maybe you should stop feeling weird and guilty about that. Then we can all stop making fun of Jeffrey Toobin.”

“…. but that’s his business rather than yours”

An idiot’s statement. Jerkin yer gherkin during a business meeting, by definition, is other people’s business. smh

    As is simultaneously being on a second Zoom connection, and as is pointing your camera at your unclothed crotch.

    Toobin did not make a minor error. Louis CK asked permission before pleasuring himself before his audiences and his career in in the toilet.

Apparently any concept of appropriate behavior is anathema to Leftists. This is typically indicative of mental illness, or to be charitable, perhaps it indicates early childhood issues from being raised by wolves.

There is no defense.

He “pulled a real Toobin” with his opinion here.

Let him whip out his tallywhacker in front of his class and see how that goes.

Does everybody “do it”? Probably, but the vast majority have the minimum common sense to “do it” behind closed doors. Toobin thought toobin’ in view of others was somehow his right. The man is either arrogant or mentally sick.

Another prime example of the state of today’s ::::cough cough:::: higher education.

David Hogg Is A Student At Harvard University….
That’s all. That’s the joke….

David Hogg
Imagine calling the immigrant parents that bring their children to the United States for a better life “Coyotes”

The level of xenophobia is sickening.

I guess all those women that Harvey Weinstein and C.K. masturbated in front of interfered with “his business rather than [theirs]” and merely reflected their unreasonable “unease with masturbation.”

So per Zimmerman’s opinion, even if Toobin had been “chokin’ the chicken” while watching child porn, this would prob be permissible.

-it’s not hurting anyone
-get over your preconceived notions about it
-it’s his business, not yours

this guy has no moral compass

    Progressives have a very special compass , it always points to the Left. Not sure where that is on a conventional compass.
    Not sure what a Leftist compass pointer looks like but Toobins tube might be it.

Wanking is like drinking, a private concern.
Wanking while videocasting is like drinking while driving. It’s possible to do it without involving anybody but yourself, but the odds are not with you.

Toobin would be better served getting J-ROC to write him a song to explain it off:

Trailer Park Boys is one of the most under-rated shows ever.

So now we know professor Jonathan Zimmerman is a prevert ?.

>>> “But I’m guessing that you do the same, dear reader.”

Oh, really? You would be wrong.

However, your statement is an admission that you do like Toobin.

If you do not fire him for being a sick puppy, fire him for being stupid.
