I am a student at MIT University (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). I am a full time student and i am so occupied with classes and therefore i have no time to find work. I asked around at the University if there are any partime jobs availabale so i can earn some extra income. I was told of one professor at the linguistics deptartment by the name of Noam Chomsky, who needed an office assistant becuase he was swamped with work.

I went to see Professor Chomsky and he agreed to let me work for him part time to do office work.

Everday after class i went to his office to organize his files, stack his papaers and help him out with his computer. The deal was that every two weeks he would pay me $300.

The day he was suppose to get paid i came into work that day and began organizing professor chomsky's files, he came in and put his chair in front of mine. He started telling me how he enjoyed having me around to work for him and how i am the best assistant he ever had.

The he proceeded to ask me why i dont have a girlfriend, and telling me how a beautiful boy like me shoud have one. He then started touching my foot with his foot, and then told me he would pay me extra if I helped him out with something else, I asked "what?" and he told me "he would pay me extra if i agreed to perform oral sex on him." I replied "no", but because i needed the money i told him "no" in a nice way, instead of barging out.

I went back to continue working on his computer, then i went into the bathroom for a minute, when i came back his door was closed, i knocked and he told me to come in, when i came in and opened the door his pant were down. And he said that i aint getting paid anything unless i perform the oral sex on him. I barged out this time. I was so sickened by him that i refused to see him ever again, and i screen his calls, or try to even persue my $300. I complained to MIT but so far no action has been taken.

Honestly...this is BS!

AUTHOR: Thomas Prebis - ()

A student at the lofty, vaunted, highfalutin Massachusetts Institute of Technology whom is careless enough to misspell such common terms like "available" and "papers?" To say NOTHING, mind you, of misspelling your own given name to close your diatribe...

It is indeed FAR more likely that you, 'Jerrrry,' are an agent of the international Zionist (Israeli) advocacy movement grasping at straws for any way you can find to discredit Noam, because his advocacy on the part of the Palestinian people has been a thorn in your side for the duration of the modern existence of your country (fifty-plus years)!!! -Tom

Not Suprising

AUTHOR: Jane - (United States of America)

I used to work at MIT, and I must say, after reading this blog I am not surprised, not even a bit. Chomsky would always hire all these high school boys, who were in the 12th and 11th grade to work for him as assistants. I and many other members of the faculty and staff of MIT would always wonder why he would constantly surround himself with all these young boys. We would also regularly witness him strolling with them on that boardwalk on Memorial drive, alongside the Charles River.

AUTHOR: Mariane - (USA)

Many years ago a friend of mine who attended MIT confided in me some traumatic events he suffered at the hands of Professor Noam Chomsky. He recanted how Chomsky would always want to spend time with him, and how he would always call him on the phone at his dorm (this was before cell phones existed). He would tell me of how Chomsky would always take him to his house and grope him and try to kiss him (it was no secret Chomsky's lust for boys, a lot of people knew about it). I remember in specific, of one traumatic experience he had with Chomsky, in which he refused to talk about, and he locked himself up in his room for 2 days. He swore me to secrecy, out of the fears that if this would be made public, he would risk loosing his scholarship.

He also suffered from depression before and after these events. A few years later he hung himself. Till this day I am convinced that those events were one of the factors which led to his suicide.

A "pedophile" is someone who preys on children
If you are indeed a student to MIT maybe you would know that but I suspect that you are not a student at MIT
Prove this - did you file a report with campus security? A report with the Dean's office? or maybe Academic Affairs??
That is what I suspected

NOT PEDOPHILIA BUT SAME-SEX WORKPLACE HARASSMENT...

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

AND IT HAPPENS MORE THAN MOST PEOPLE REALIZE.

THIS GUY HAPPENS TO BE FAMOUS, A BIG NAME LIBERAL ACADEMIC GIANT WITH A WORLDWIDE REPUTATION WHO THINKS HE IS G*D AND ALL OTHER PEOPLE ARE ONLY GOOD TO BE HIS PERSONAL SLAVE...

I NEVER HEARD OF HIM BEING GAY THOUGH BUT STRANGER THINGS HAVE HAPPENED, i GUESS, HE PROBABLY HAS TENURE WHICH MEANS IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FIRE HIM UNLESS FOR MORAL TURPITUDE. I AM NOT SURE IF BEING GAY AND ALLEGEDLY PROPOSITIONING A SAME-SEX STUDENT FOR SEX WHO IS OVER 18 CONSTITUTES MORAL TURPITUDE OR NOT.

I DID DO SOME RESEARCH ON HIM THOUGH AND I USED WIKIPEDIA WHICH IS FAIR USE AND NOT COPYRIGHTED AND THIS IS WHAT I FOUND ABOUT HIM;


Avram Noam Chomskyborn December 7, 1928) is an American linguist, philosopher,] cognitive scientist, political activist, author, and lecturer. He is an Institute Professor emeritus and professor emeritus of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.Chomsky is well known in the academic and scientific community as the father of modern linguistics. Since the 1960s, he has become known more widely as a political dissident, an anarchist, and a libertarian socialist intellectual.

In the 1950s, Chomsky began developing his theory of generative grammar, which has undergone numerous revisions and has had a profound influence on linguistics. He also established the Chomsky hierarchy, a classification of formal languages in terms of their generative power. In 1959, Chomsky published a widely influential review of B. F. Skinner's theoretical book Verbal Behavior, which was the first attempt by a Radical Behaviorist to provide a functional, operant analysis of language. Chomsky used this review to broadly and aggressively challenge the behaviorist approaches to studies of behavior dominant at the time and contributed to the cognitive revolution in psychology. His naturalistic[approach to the study of language has affected the philosophy of language and mind. Randy Harris, author of The Linguistics Wars, has described him as: "a hero of Homeric proportions, belonging solidly in the pantheon of our country's finest minds, with all the powers and qualities thereof. First, foremost, and initially he is staggeringly smart. The speed, scope, and synthetic abilities of his intellect are legendary. He is, too, a born leader, able to marshal support, fierce and uncompromising support, for positions he develops or adopts. Often, it seems, he shapes linguistics by sheer force of will."

Beginning with his opposition to the Vietnam War, Chomsky established himself as a prominent critic of US foreign and domestic policy. He is a self-declared adherent of libertarian socialism which he regards as "the proper and natural extension of classical liberalism into the era of advanced industrial society."

According to the Arts and Humanities Citation Index in 1992, Chomsky was cited as a source more often than any other living scholar during the 198092 period, and was the eighth most-cited source. He is also considered a prominent cultural figure.At the same time, his status as a leading critic of US foreign policy has made him controversial.

Chomsky was born to Jewish parents in the East Oak Lane neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the son of a Hebrew scholar and IWW member, William Chomsky (18961977), a native of Ukraine. His mother, Elsie Chomsky (ne Simonofsky), a native of what is present-day Belarus, grew up in the United States and, unlike her husband, spoke "ordinary New York English". Their first language was Yiddish, but Chomsky said it was "taboo" in his family to speak it. He describes his family as living in a sort of "Jewish ghetto", split into a "Yiddish side" and "Hebrew side", with his family aligning with the latter and bringing him up "immersed in Hebrew culture and literature". Chomsky also describes tensions he personally experienced with Irish Catholics and German Catholics and anti-semitism in the mid-1930s. He recalls German-American "Beer parties" celebrating the fall of Paris to the Nazis . In a discussion of the irony of his staying in the 1980s in a Jesuit House in Central America, Chomsky explained that during his childhood, "We were the only Jewish family around. I grew up with a visceral fear of Catholics. They're the people who beat you up on your way to school. So I knew when they came out of that building down the street, which was the Jesuit school, they were raving anti-Semites. So childhood memories took a long time to overcome."

Chomsky remembers the first article he wrote was at age 10 while a student at Oak Lane Country Day School about the threat of the spread of fascism, following the fall of Barcelona in the Spanish Civil War. From the age of 12 or 13, he identified more fully with anarchist politics.

A graduate of Central High School of Philadelphia, Chomsky began studying philosophy and linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania in 1945, taking classes with philosophers such as C. West Churchman and Nelson Goodman and linguist Zellig Harris. Harris's teaching included his discovery of transformations as a mathematical analysis of language structure (mappings from one subset to another in the set of sentences). Chomsky subsequently reinterpreted these as operations on the productions of a context-free grammar (derived from Post production systems). Harris's political views were instrumental in shaping those of Chomsky. Chomsky earned a BA in 1949 and an MA in 1951.

HE WAS MARRIEd AT LEAST ONCE. they ahd two kids. NO WORD ON WHETHER OR NOT HE REMARRIED.

In 1949, he married linguist Carol Schatz. They remained married for 59 years until her death from cancer in December 2008.[22] The couple had two daughters, Aviva (b. 1957) and Diane (b. 1960), and a son, Harry (b. 1967).

Chomsky received his PhD in linguistics from the University of Pennsylvania in 1955. He conducted part of his doctoral research during four years at Harvard University as a Harvard Junior Fellow. In his doctoral thesis, he began to develop some of his linguistic ideas, elaborating on them in his 1957 book Syntactic Structures, his best-known work in linguistics.

Chomsky joined the staff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1955 and in 1961 was appointed full professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics (now the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy). From 1966 to 1976 he held the Ferrari P. Ward Professorship of Modern Languages and Linguistics, and in 1976 he was appointed Institute Professor. As of 2008, Chomsky has taught at MIT continuously for 53 years.

In February 1967, Chomsky became one of the leading opponents of the Vietnam War with the publication of his essay, "The Responsibility of Intellectuals", in The New York Review of Books. This was followed by his 1969 book, American Power and the New Mandarins, a collection of essays which established him at the forefront of American dissent. His far-reaching criticisms of US foreign policy and the legitimacy of US power have made him a controversial figure: largely shunned by the mainstream media in the United States,[he is frequently sought out for his views by publications and news outlets worldwide.

Chomsky has received death threats because of his criticisms of US foreign policy. He was also on a list of planned targets created by Theodore Kaczynski, better known as the Unabomber; during the period that Kaczynski was at large, Chomsky had all of his mail checked for explosives.[He states that he often receives undercover police protection, in particular while on the MIT campus, although he does not agree with the police protection.

Chomsky resides in Lexington, Massachusetts and travels often, giving lectures on politics.

AND IRONY OF IRONIES, CHECK OUT WHAT HE HAS TO SAY IN HIS OWN WORDS:


That there isn't much difference between slavery, and renting one's self to an owner, or "wage slavery." He feels that it is an attack on personal integrity that destroys and undermines our freedoms. He holds workers should own and control their own workplace.

LIKE THE WORKPLACE YOU CLAIM HE PROVIDED FOR YOU.

HOW OLD IS THIS DUDE ANYWAY? MAYBE HE HAS ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE OR IS IN THE BEGINNING STAGES OF DEMENTIA?

HE IS NOT A PEDOPHILE AND I THINK YOU WILL HAVE A HARD TIME PROVING THAT HE IS GAY...I THINK MAYBE HE WAS JUST DOING THAT -- IF HE DID DO WHAT YOU SAY HE DID -- SO THAT YOU WOULD GET GROSSED OUT AND LEAVE AND HE WOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY YOU.

IF You have proof that he hired you, like maybe an agreement on paper or a W-2 form or something, maybe you should go to the Federal Wages and Hour commission office near you and tell them that he did not pay you, And on the way, maybe they have an office in the same building, you need to file a complaint with the EEOC
Equal Employment Opportunities Commission or whatever...

Sounds like this guy has plenty of enemies who would do something about this!
