It seems increasingly evident that most universities today have become not much more than zoos where you can watch left-wing progressives fling poo at each other? Up at Wellesley, the leftist progressives are in convulsive outrage because a woman who claims to actually be a man wants to be a diversity bureaucrat.
Timothy Boatwright was born a girl, and checked off the “female” box when applying to the Massachusetts all-women’s school, according to an article in the New York Times. But when he got there, he introduced himself as a “masculine-of-center genderqueer” person named “Timothy” (the name he picked for himself) and asked them to use male pronouns when referring to him.
And, by all accounts, Boatwright felt welcome on campus — until the day he announced that he wanted to run for the school’s office of multicultural affairs coordinator, whose job is to promote a “culture of diversity” on campus.
But some students thought that allowing Boatwright to have the position would just perpetuate patriarchy. They were so opposed, in fact, that when the other three candidates (all women of color) dropped out, they started an anonymous Facebook campaign encouraging people not to vote at all to keep him from winning the position.
And if you find the whole thing a silly waste of time and can’t believe people get worked up about it, that shows you’re not of ‘the tribe,’ that means you are a hater, racist, homophobe, bitter-clinger.
One begins to think maybe Glenn Beck is right and maybe it’s time to boycott college.
If you’re not familiar with it, a college degree is a thing that we tell our kids to buy with money they don’t have, in hopes that it will help them make money they might earn, which will give them the ability to pay back the money they spent in order to make the money they’re paying it back with.
It seems that a college degree is often a way to spend four or five years pretending that it’s very important that a transgendered shemale not get a job in the multicultural affairs department while running up six figures of student loan debt. (A year’s tuition at Wellesley College is $45,000.)
