49 percent is now a private blog.

This week, an anonymous reader managed to dig up real-life, privileged contact information and used it to harass my family in an attempt to threaten and silence me. I believe this person may be affiliated with my institution and will be pursuing the matter.

This is a clear example of the kind of silencing academic women of colour face when we refuse to present ourselves as ingratiating, conformist simpletons.

My blog is intact, though I have moved it to another URL and converted it to an invitation-only space. Please contact me at 49percentblog[at]gmail[dot]com if you would like access.
