Where Do We Get Such Men?

 

As you may have heard, there’s been slightly more than the usual amount of drama at the Washington Post the past few days.  In the midst of the ongoing, junior-high quality drama, a young employee and Stanford graduate named Holden Foreman decided to white knight on behalf of the women generating the drama.  He did this by tattling on male Washington Post employees who agreed with a different female employee that everybody should give it a rest, put the drama behind them and get back to work.

So, who is this courageous Generation Tide Pod person, Holden Foreman, standing up for the right of women to create and sustain workplace drama? As I said, he is a graduate of Stanford. While at Stanford, he apparently published an article … I am not making this up … complaining that he had to go hungry at college because eating food from a cafeteria was too traumatizing for him and he lacked the ability to determine for himself how much food to eat. The remedy he demanded … still not making this up… was that the university should cut and portion his food for him individually so he would be spared the trauma of eating at a buffet.

Coping with the Trauma of Free Speech

 

A sign at Colorado State University offers 17 separate campus resources for students who can’t even and are literally shaking because someone expressed an opinion they disagree with.

Yeah, it’s real. Colorado State University offers 17 separate campus resources for students who “can’t even” and are “literally shaking” ( a “Victim’s Assistance Hotline”) because someone expressed an opinion they disagree with..  They didn’t even have to hear the “offensive” opinion to be traumatized by it. Just knowing that someone, somewhere on campus may have expressed an “offensive” opinion is enough. And even if the opinion wasn’t directed at you, you can be offended on behalf of “someone you know” who should have been offended by it.

School Diary: How to Anger a Budding SJW

 
A small eruption of social justice warfare erupted today at the start of class. Thoughts, critiques, suggestions, etc…all warmly welcomed.My class was waiting to begin when a chatty Hispanic student- call her K- said: “well, I read this article in the Washington Post…but I shouldn’t talk about it now…”

K has been my student for a year and a half so I should have known better than to take the bait. Most of her tuition is paid by a fund that sends “promising” students from public schools to independent/private schools in the state. We know this because she speaks about it constantly, to everyone. She’s generally cheerful, inarticulate, and uninformed (“Ok, so this Helen Keller person… I don’t really know who she was, but anyhoo, so… my sister said that she was blind and deaf. And she couldn’t talk either? But how… like I don’t wanna be mean or, like….well mean I guess but I mean how is that possible? Like at the same time?”)

“Did you get up this morning knowing there are mountains to climb, and deciding that you are going to climb them? Or did you wake up whining about safe spaces and trigger warnings (Caution: The following may be offensive)?

Why oh why?  If we need a viable, sustainable health care program with universal coverage, then we need those young, healthy “invincibles” to pay SOMETHING into the system when they are least likely to take something out.  Instead, we give a free pass to those snowflakes who are staying in Daddy’s basement, and staying on […]

A dingbat leftist attempted to defend Generation Snowflake, and ended up proving why the “snowflake” label fits them perfectly. The reason modern children (and these are “children” in their twenties and thirties) need “safe spaces” is because… this is her actual argument… they can’t cope with the ordinary realities of life (and if you tell […]
