Thought this was photoshopped because no one could actually be this insane

The article is REAL. Read it here.
The author of the article is feminist Leslie Kern.
Leslie is an academic coach. She wrote a book called “Feminist City.”
She tweeted about having her first article published in The Guardian. Her tweet:
Oh, what a day. My first piece in The Guardian. My first piece of misogynist hate mail. My first time using the advanced notifications filter in Twitter.

Is it any wonder why she reacted this way when the first paragraph of her article is the following:
“Glass ceilings and phallic towers. Mean streets and dark alleys. Road names and statues of men. From the physical to the metaphorical, the city is filled with reminders of masculine power. And yet we rarely talk of the urban landscape as an active participant in gender inequality. A building, no matter how phallic, isn’t actually misogynist, is it? Surely a skyscraper isn’t responsible for sexual harassment, the wage gap, or even the glass ceiling, whether it has a literal one up top or not?”
Oh, you bet it can be!
I would expect nothing less from the “Director, Women’s and Gender Studies Program, Mount Allison University, Sackville, NB, CANADA.”
