Charles, you'd like Donna Haraway's ideas about this. She says that we should call this era the "Capitalocene" not the "Anthropocene." For much the same reason that you give. Check it out: https://vimeo.com/97663518

This guy is seriously the gift that keeps on giving. Now he's comparing his situation (being such an arrogant jerk and violating the ethics of the teacher/student compact to the extent that now people don't want him to be representing Seattle when it comes to literature) to writers who are imprisoned or worse in fucking Badgad? Stranger if you want to help this guy out, stop giving him new opportunities to exhibit what an ass he is.

You are right about one thing. You definitely don't belong on that list.

@179 Ilona Andrews makes some really good points:
"Writing is a creative pursuit and creativity is a critical aspect of being human. To be in the position of shaping and helping people become better versions of themselves is a privilege. Through one’s writing, you can see the very core of one’s person and by holding his students in contempt and by being nearly disgusted at their supposed ineptitude or desire to tell the stories of their lives, this teacher caused irreparable harm. If I were one of his former students reading this, I would be devastated."

Aaahahaha that picture. This guy looks EXACTLY like I imagined him. Those must be his "I'm the Real Deal" sunglasses.

Speaking of the wonderful Bhanu Kapil, she just urged Ryan to apologize to his former students in her beautiful, alarmingly kind and smart post here: http://jackkerouacispunjabi.blogspot.com…

The best rejoinder to this article is the existence of brilliant, inspiring, loving writing teachers such as Lidia Yuknavich, Justin Hocking, Bhanu Kapil, and legendary writing teachers like Tobias Wolff, John Gardner, hell even Charles Olson. All of whom absolutely tower over Boudinot as writers and as humans, and all of whom elevated the lives of those lucky enough to come into contact with them.

Reposting from a smart person on a facebook thread: "There's definitely a narcissist in this article, and it's not the students."
