Women Are Fragile Creatures That Must Be Sheltered from Life say Feminists

A gang of six professors at Wellesley College (cough “Asylum” cough) (Annual cost of attendance: $66,966) calling themselves “the Commission for Ethnicity, Race, and Equity (CERE)” have authored a policy that would ban speakers from the college if their views are so controversial (i.e. conservative, libertarian, or anti-socialist) that snowflakes might be offended by them.

The nut of their argument is that the presence of speakers presenting opinions that social justice wankers disagree with traumatizes the minority groups privileged white people always claim to be concerned about — womyn, people without pale skin, and of course the LGBTQs — who then must (because they can’t just let these things go) — MUST invest valuable time and energy in making signs, smashing windows, putting together giant vagina costumes, making tearful YouTube videos and suchlike.

I am not making this up.

There is no doubt that the speakers in question impose on the liberty of students, staff, and faculty at Wellesley. We are especially concerned with the impact of speakers’ presentations on Wellesley students, who often feel the injury most acutely and invest time and energy in rebutting the speakers’ arguments. Students object in order to affirm their humanity.

  1. This site could easily be called “I am not making this up.”

  2. Who knew, the “weaker sex” wasn’t a pejorative after all. Soft bigotry, soft racism and now soft anti feminism.

  3. Faculty taking the position that free speech reduces liberty. That students shouldn’t have to rebut arguments with which they don’t agree. I don’t even know where to begin. I just hope that at some point all this snowflakery gets so extreme that the pendulum will swing back in the other direction.

  4. The actual thinking person today avoids these over-priced jokes at all costs. There is increasingly no good reason for these places to exist.

  5. But, hey, remember:

    we are the fascists posing as conservatives.

    I mean, isn’t that obvious?

    Translation:

    The intolerant, self-congratulating nutjobs we are, do not want Wellesley students to be exposed to content that may make them recover or restart their neurons, in such a way that they would find out about the rotting (since circa 1917) brainwashing we’ve been unabashedly subjecting them to, in total impunity, since in plain sight, from our academic ivory tower providing for us with nicely fat paychecks.

  7. When I read stories like this with the noun “professor” in them, my bourgeoisie hurts so bad I start craving to pay more taxes.

  9. So, once again, the mantra, “Your words hurt me, so you shouldn’t be allowed to say them.” Have these 2-year-olds never heard anyone say anything mean? Do they think that we should all live in a place where we all naturally agree with them because they believe in community thought rather than individual expression? Words are causing them distress? So, why don’t they just not go hear them spoken? If you only want to hear your point of view then only go to symposiums where they speak what you consider to be “your truth.” My beliefs are not going to change because you don’t like them. I thought institutions of higher learning we’re supposed to promote the notions of logic and discussion and debate not Calatayud to peoples feelings. I guess maybe I should be glad I decided not to continue on to try to become a professor .

  10. **we’re= were…Calatayud = cater to… I am so tired of my ridiculous voice recognition that never recognizes anything correctly…

  11. do the so-called feminists care if people are offended by their words?

  12. @11

    Per the peculiarly sophisticated deductive rule system (patented in Amherst college, btw) of their,

    Liberally Regressive Logic Promoting A Better One Big Village World Of Multiculturally Engineered and Intercontinental Piling Up Of Backward Self-Differentiating Gendered Plebes That We Must Forcefully Save From Themselves Of Not Understanding Our Superior Capabilities In Virtuous Social Justice Applied — And They Like It Or Not,

    the answer is obviously,

    “Well, of course not! Why should they?!”

  13. So many Wellesley alumnae from many years* ago would be horrified at what their alma mater has become.

    *pre-1960s

  14. @13 some may have put their diplomas in a carefully chosen hiding place in the attic.

    And who would blame for that?

    Certainly not I!

  16. Next will be the return of the fainting couch, the “Ladies Lounge”, and the Vapors.

  17. This has been going on for a long, long time. Decades, literally.

    In a year or so, there won’t be a sort of pause in the sjw hatred.

    They won’t actually give up any of the Tyranny they have imposed, but they will quiet down.

    Conservatives will note the relative silence, and say something like ” things are getting better, Liberals are changing…” and they will go back to supporting left-wing institutions.

    And the cycle will start over again. The ratcheting only goes one way. It never stops.

  18. $66K+ to attend a school, if one uses the term loosely, where opinions with which the students disagree will be banned ? You might as well just set the money alight. In the workforce these young ladies are going to invest time and perhaps money researching and perhaps, if they go into, say, law or politics, rebutting opposing opinions and statements. These professors are doing their students a serious disservice. Not everyone is going to agree with the worldview of these young people, and the sooner they learn to defend their opinions the better off they will be.
