Georgetown University drops Arianna Pattek down the memory hole

A racist, sexist blogger writing as "feministconservative" told of her employment in a university admissions office where she boasted of throwing applications from white males in the trash:
For instance I can’t tell you how many applications I saw that were just dripping with white male privelege. Any of those that I saw basically went straight to the garbage can regardless of how good their qualifactions were. If I saw an application from a white male that basically was just good test scores, and activities like chess club or math club or what not then it shows me this person is not interested in a diverse environment. Obviously he made no effort in integrating with minorities or to sympathize with them and is counting on male privelege to get in. So that kind of application should get ignored. In their place I admitted a female student. This goes double especially for math/science majors.


I’m happy to say that I approved nearly 90% of all female minority and 80% of all (white female applicants especially if the girls want to study math or science) while rejecting over 50% of white males this week and hope this trend holds out.
Imagine the sick educational environment that would lead someone to believe there was absolutely nothing wrong with writing something like that.

After web sleuths tentatively identified the blogger as Arianna Pattek and the university as Georgetown University via details about her senior thesis that she posted online, Georgetown's response has been odd. They have denied via Twitter that Pattek was employed in the admissions office, but have not released an official statement. Odder still, they have scrubbed any mention of Pattek from the University web site.

Google or Bing her name and you'll find multiple stories on the Georgetown University website, all of which have been dropped down the memory hole, as has her senior thesis. Some are still available on archive.org.

Feminists aren't known for their sense of humor, but anything's possible.

I have to ask, those white males who find an interest in chess or math, have you no shame?!? Has UCSD's 250K+ diversity officer made any comment on this yet? Also, just random thoughts here, aren't half the pieces on a chess board black???

By that standard, she would have sacked any applicant who was a Jesuit. Rather ironic.

To any white male applicant who has been denied entry during her time there - time to go see Aaron Schwartz and Associates about settling up. Schwartz & Associates can figure up a monetary value on woulda' coulda' shoulda' and see if they can shake Georgetown's money tree. Don't get mad, get even.

hold the phone - she has a doctorate?.... from Georgetown?.... and took a job there as opposed to moving back in with Mommy and Daddy? Hahahahaha .... and she denies male applicants if she detects even a hint of "privilege".... hahahahahaha!!!! Talk about your double standard!!???!! This culture has produced more people of all types that are world class contortionists… By that I mean they belong in Cirque de Solei because people would line up to pay good money to see them bend backward and blow smoke up their own asshole ….or in this chick’s case…her own twat. What a fucking clown. If this bitch has ever broken a sweat doing an honest week’s work for pay, I would be absolutely fucking stunned. Grow up already you little My-Little-Pony loving bitch.

In response to inquiries regarding Georgetown University alumna Arianna Pattek and the Admissions Office at Georgetown University:

Georgetown University confirms that Arianna Pattek graduated magna cum laude from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service with a bachelor's degree in 2012. On April 18, 2013 she was mistakenly identified as the author of an anonymous blog, and as a result became the target of threats on several Internet discussion boards. Out of concern for the safety and well-being of our alumna, the university removed information about Ms. Pattek from the university's website. Georgetown University further confirms that Ms. Pattek is not now, nor has she ever been, employed by any of the admissions offices at Georgetown University. The unethical admissions practices described in the anonymous blog post do not reflect the careful and comprehensive admissions procedures at Georgetown University. Ms. Pattek has confirmed that she is not the author of the blog in question. Further, the blog in question does not reference Georgetown University.

Everything on the internet is doubtful. I wonder how much money the people who perpetuated the WH attack on Twitter made when the market reacted and then bounced back.
