Anti-Brexit Cambridge prof Victoria Bateman gets naked (again)

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

Dr Victoria Bateman is the Cambridge professor getting naked in protest against Brexit. But she’s been exposing herself for ages! In fact, I spoke to her last year and asked her whether being naked is a good or bad thing.

Given the fact she says Brexit leaves Britain naked, I thought it was a fair question.

Her logic really doesn’t add up, and it seems to me that this lady just likes getting naked in front of people. Unfortunately for her, most of us don’t really appreciate it.

I agree, the trades are a great option. Grad school is the abusive husband of the career world, a long often miserable slog that prepares you for a job where you earn less than a cop does – it’s not for everyone.

Rich people often work at daddy’s company though it really depends how you define “rich”. Being a 1%er doesn’t necessarily mean a life of luxury.

“Not only are there many people that became wealthy without any higher education, there are a great deal higher percentage of people that have a higher level education that are also poor. "

The number of people who become wealthy without education these days is fairly low, and heavily concentrated in tech. It takes a very specific personality type to pull it off. The people that do are either lucky, picked up the information anyway (ie the sort of people who recreationally read random Wikipedia pages), or have a trust fund. For others, the benefit of higher education lies not so much in the information learned, but in the networking (MBAs in particular).

And, yes, higher education doesn’t necessarily lead to higher incomes. In some cases they end up involuntarily underemployed (as happens to many immigrants who can’t get their credentials recognized). In other cases, including my own it’s deliberate. I didn’t do a PhD for the earning potential, but rather for the personal fulfillment.

For the average person on the street, you’re far better off getting an education. Most people do not have the drive or wherewithal to start their own business. The gates thus unlocked are still mediocrity for the unaspirational, but it won’t destroy your back by the time you’re 45.

’Those that are uneducated tend to have a great deal more common sense than the highly educated who think themselves so intelligent but prove themselves disconnected from the reality that surrounds themselves. The evidence of this is all around us. Look at the universities and all the stupid things that come out of them … ideas and people. "

I’ve heard this before, and it seems more to be salve for the bruised ego tired of being the target of condescension. The problem with “common sense” is that it’s often flat out wrong, the triumph of feelings or over-deduction over actual observation. If you observe A usually leads to B. but not always, you often see “common sense” arguing that A invariably leads to B, and any discrepancy must be an error. Education teaches you to evaluate the exceptions, and perhaps revise your theories to explain why those exceptions occur (a solid STEM education will teach you that you can’t just arbitrarily discard the exceptional data – it teaches you to keep an open mind something sorely lacking among those who decry those they disagree with as “stupid”). Naturally curious people will tend to do this anyway, but they will also benefit from further education to allow them to leverage this tendency.

Are the things coming out of university actually “stupid”, or do you simply disagree with them and use the derogatory terminology as a mechanism of avoiding ideas you can’t necessarily refute with evidence, a slightly different version of “common sense”.

" but prove themselves disconnected from the reality that surrounds themselves"

I have no idea what this means. We all live in the same world and deal with the same problems and issues. Some ideas are more controversial than others (although some of it is just partisanship/ “culture wars”) but few ideas gaining mainstream traction are flat-out wrong, and those that are don’t tend to arise in universities but rather the dark corners of the internet.

A quote that holds the truth regardless of whether you believe in the Bible or not. "

He might have been referring to “common sense”, a fine example of professing yourself to be wise?

Re: Andrew “oh, my gawd I know everything” Stephenson’s latest attempt at an “intelligent” comment.

Having a high level education does not guarantee a lucrative wage.

Those that are uneducated tend to have a great deal more common sense than the highly educated who think themselves so intelligent but prove themselves disconnected from the reality that surrounds themselves. The evidence of this is all around us. Look at the universities and all the stupid things that come out of them … ideas and people.

How do you know, O, All Knowing Wise One what anyone’s education or financial well being is? Anyway this aspersion on other people’s education is a bit rich coming from someone who thinks babies are parasites.

It’s fun to watch the Deplorables turn being poor and uneducated into a virtue. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

Charred, don’t you worry about that. I weigh 900lbs. :)

Still trying to get laid" indeed!… She may as well add squatting and pissing on the graves of other Cambridge alumni such as John Milton, Francis Bacon and Isaac Newton to her act…

These professors have all educated themselves into imbecility. This is why academia is filled with lunatic ideas. It’s also easier than working a REAL job. Work is a four-letter word to them.

Keith is correct. I have numerous photos of Elephants in Thailand… I knew I had seen her somewhere before, but just could not place it. Now, I see the resemblance…

You have to laugh at these “feminists”. They complain loud and long about women being “objectified” as sexual objects which is apparently a very bad thing. Then, for every cause, they git nekked as some weird empowerment scheme which is apparently a very good thing. Weird.

It would be better if she had a decent body, as it is she looks like the rear end of a Elephant with it’s tail standing up.

Hilarious!! She’s still trying to get laid… Won’t happen if she keeps this up… Betty, and Peter, dead on.. Andrew? I could not agree more… But hey, she’s a University Professor, right? Not to be outdone, I’m sure many of our “University Professors” here in Canada, will attempt to outdo Victoria Nutbar… Give it time…

Brexit leaves Britain shrill, stretch marked, saggy, floppy and Hee-Haw donkey ugly, apparently… If she loves the EU so much, why won’t she move there? Please? I’ll bet her naked Shtick will go over well in the Muslim No-Go Zones.

A man getting naked in front of the world is considered a pervert.

A woman getting naked in front of the world is considered an expression or her rights.

Both are just pervert and psychologically amiss.

She may be an exhibitionist. It used to be a psychiatric condition, and maybe it’s still on the books.
