Professor Potty Mouth Complains to College Republicans

(Iowa City, Iowa) In response to a general distribution email from the College Republicans announcing "Conservative Coming Out Week," a University of Iowa professor of women's studies, Ellen Lewin, impolitely expressed her displeasure.
Lewin responded to email by writing, “#*@% [F-Word] YOU, REPUBLICANS” from her official university email account.
Offhand, I'd suggest that "F**K YOU" is more closely associated with a bar fight than with measured civil discourse in academia.
