When Cooper Union student activists forcibly removed the gender identifiers on restrooms around the small campus last fall in the name of transgender solidarity, its acting president did nothing.
Now he’s rewarding their vandalism by making it policy.
Inside Higher Ed reports that the New York college has made all its restrooms gender-neutral and replaced the gendered signs with layout descriptions: “Restroom With Urinals and Stalls,” “Restroom With Only Stalls” or “Restroom Single Occupancy.”
Acting President Bill Mea is also warning students not to practice “gender policing” – that is, having the common reaction of surprise and discomfort when seeing someone of the opposite sex in a multi-user restroom.
He wrote to the community:
We have always been ahead of our time and we must continue being leaders on issues of social justice.
We, who are in positions of power, have the obligation to not only stand with those without power, but to stand in front of them, clearing a path for them to walk. I cannot change the outside world and how it treats transgender and gender non-conforming people, but I can change the Cooper Union environment to help everyone feel safe when they are inside our buildings. Please know that my decision comes from a personal sense of obligation to others, which is a reflection of my beliefs and, I believe, an extension of the beliefs held by our founder.
He said he didn’t put the names back on the restrooms after they were vandalized by activists “in order to see how we all reacted,” which was mostly no reaction. (Lesson to activists: If your rulebreaking is popular, you’ll get away with it.)
Mea hints that students could face disciplinary action if they make those of the opposite sex or transgender students feel uncomfortable in the newly “degendered” multi-user restrooms:
I also ask that none of us practice gender policing, where we attempt to restrict someone from using the same restroom we are using or make them feel uncomfortable for doing so. If you feel uncomfortable sharing a restroom, then the single-occupancy restrooms will now be available to you.
The policy doesn’t extend to locker rooms because Cooper Union doesn’t have any, Inside Higher Ed says.
Campus Pride, the LGBT college activist group, said Cooper Union was the first college it knew of that had made “every campus restroom in academic buildings gender inclusive.”
Cooper Union’s move stands in contrast to the George Washington University law school’s decision to convert a multi-user men’s room to “all gender” but add a lock and encourage students to use it one at a time – a change that brought its own vandalism.
You’re gonna think this came from The Onion, but I assure you it didn’t. This really happened here in America. This is the level we are at.
People are always talking about how they are afraid of terrorism. Or economic collapse. You know what I’m afraid of?
The younger generations of college students who have apparently been socially engineered to be complete and utter pansies who run crying to authorities any time someone disagrees with them and who beg to have everyone stripped of their First Amendment right to free speech because they apparently have the backbones of garden slugs.
These are the young adults of America’s “future”??
Look at this picture from the Emory Wheel, Emory University’s student-run newspaper:
You would think just by glancing at this that someone died.
Nope. This is a student response to someone chalking campus with “fear-inducing” pro-Donald Trump messages like… wait for it… “Trump 2016” on the campus of Emory University.
Check out this harrowing tale… if you dare!
The chalkings that generated such controversy appeared overnight throughout Emory’s campus. College junior Harpreet Singh said that, initially, he did not find the chalkings significant. “I saw one big one, ‘Trump 2016,’ so I thought it was an isolated incident and I didn’t think much of it,” he said. “I thought, ‘Okay, it’s just a guy who wants to write whatever he wants to believe in for his political campaign.’ I was like, ‘Okay, I’m fine with that, to a certain extent.’”
Singh reported having seen multiple chalkings that read “Trump 2016” between Cox Hall Bridge and the Dobbs University Center (DUC). “What I also saw on the steps near Cox [Hall] Bridge was ‘Accept the Inevitable: Trump 2016,’” he said. “That was a bit alarming. What exactly is the inevitable? Why does it have to be accepted?”
“I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here],” one student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well… I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school,” she added.
And also this:
“How can you not [disavow Trump] when Trump’s platform and his values undermine Emory’s values that I believe are diversity and inclusivity when they are obviously not [something that Trump supports]” one student said tearfully.
This story, in all actuality, has nothing to do with Trump. Or even politics.
These are adult-aged manchildren and womenchildren who apparently cannot handle it when people have opinions that differ from their own, opinions which fall outside of the sphere of allotted politically correct opinions they have been propagandized and programmed with since their tiny tot days in the brainwashing centers that pass for American public schools these days.
Back to reality, we’re talking about CHALK.
Chalk writing on university sidewalks.
Chalk that disappears with the first hint of rain or eventually just wears off on its own.
Instead of getting their own chalk and writing their own message, or just simply ignoring someone who they disagree with politically, these college students began a protest and ran crying to the university president in fear trying to shut down free speech – a common scene on college campuses these days.
The students demanded that the university to publicly, officially disavow Trump (meaning, they wanted a university to openly take a political stance) and everything Trump stands for. The university would not because universities are not supposed to endorse political ideologies.
Here’s a picture of the meeting about it in the president’s office:
Look at how serious they are, as if sidewalk chalk is a real issue.
The university did respond by changing the campus chalking policy, however. Now if a student wants to write something on the sidewalk at Emory in chalk, they have to reserve the right through an online platform so it can be pre-approved.Way to uphold the First Amendment there, Emory.
In addition, the university is reviewing security footage to attempt to find the dastardly devil who dared to chalk “Trump 2016” on the sidewalk and terrorize these precious little snowflakes.
One wonders what happens to these “adults” once they leave the hallowed safe space that is their campus and they have to deal with the real world where no one cares if they are scared of chalk. A world where someone might – GASP! – put a “Trump 2016” sign in their own front yard, for example? A world where the news media might show pro-Trump rallies in the 2016 election coverage.
Do they fall down on the sidewalk and ball into a fetal position and weep? Drive their cars into a tree?? Do their heads explode like in the movie Scanners???
On a side note, these students are okay with seeing the words “Trump 2016” physically together without bursting into tears and cowering in fear so long as the word “stop” is with them.
Then that’s okay, apparently.
Notice the word “gently” in this paragraph… Better wrap up the meeting gently. Better not hurt these poor darlings by wrapping up the meeting like adults…
Bowdoin College, a private liberal arts college in Maine, has offered counseling to students who felt “injured and affected” by a group of classmates who attended a Tequila-themed birthday party on campus wearing miniature sombreros.
Two members of Bowdoin’s student government, Duncan Cannon and Claire McInerney, are now facing impeachment after the college administration launched a crackdown.
“This has to do with our social code and the context of other issues we’ve been dealing with as a college,” Bowdoin’s president, Clayton Rose, told the Portland Press Herald.
Michelle Kruk, a senior and vice president of student government, told the paper “It’s not about tequila or sombreros.”
“It’s about casual racial and ethnic stereotyping and cultural insensitivity at a school that has seen far too many examples of both.”
The General Assembly of Bowdoin students issued a “statement of solidarity to stand by all students who were affected by the ‘tequila’ party”. The General Assembly recommended that the administration acknowledge the “deep hurt” caused by the event, and set up a “safe space” for those affected.
According to the statement, the college president has already “undertaken to develop a process by which responses to acts of racial and ethnic bias and stereotyping are improved and institutionalized.” The statement can be read in full here.
This is the latest incident of American students being offered therapy after being offended. Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ tour of U.S campuses has led to a string of such events, at Pittsburgh, Rutgers, and the University of Michigan. University of Pittsburgh students reported they were “in tears” and “feeling unsafe” following Yiannopoulos’ visit to campus.
The problem of coddled students, described in-depth by Foundation for Individual Rights In Education President Greg Lukianoff and social scientist Jonathan Haidt in a longform Atlantic essay last year, appears to be getting worse rather than better.
Nearly 10% of college graduates surveyed in a poll believe Judith Sheindlin, aka “Judge Judy,” serves on the Supreme Court.
Sheindlin is an American lawyer made popular as the judge on a court show by the name of “Judge Judy.” The show features Sheindlin handling small disputes in a courtroom, but Sheindlin does not serve on the Supreme Court of the United States.
The poll, conducted by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni in August 2015 but released in January 2016, concluded from the 1,000 surveyed that college graduates “are alarmingly ignorant of America’s history and heritage.”
The survey also found 28.4% of college graduates correctly identify the father of the Constitution as James Madison. About 59% of college students surveyed believe the father of the Constitution was Thomas Jefferson, who was actually the principle writer for the Declaration of Independence.
Even Alan Dershowitz – a liberal lawyer who moves in the same criminally degenerate social circles as Bill Clinton – has had enough of the totalitarian political correctness that prevails on college campuses:
Political correctness (a.k.a. cultural Marxism) is a poisonous ideology explicitly intended to degrade and destroy our culture. The only way to maintain it as the prevailing ideology is through thuggery. Unfortunately, most people are weak enough to submit to intellectual intimidation, rather than thinking for themselves.

How radical, weird and out of touch have liberals on college campuses gotten since Obama came into office? It’s worse than you ever thought and although there is an almost unlimited number of problematic incidents to choose from, these 15 are particularly effective at getting across how bad things have become.
1) “College Students Say Remembering 9/11 Is Offensive to Muslims… The everything-is-offensive brand of campus activism has struck a new low: Students at the University of Minnesota killed a proposed moment of silence for 9/11 victims due to concerns – insulting, childish concerns – that Muslim students would be offended.”
2) “Portland State University Offers Course Teaching How to ‘Make Whiteness Strange’… According to Portland State University Professor Rachel Sanders’ ‘White Privilege’ course, ‘whiteness’ must be dismantled if racial justice will ever be achieved. The course description states that ‘whiteness is the lynchpin of structures of racial meaning and racial inequality in the United States” and claims that ‘to preserve whiteness is to preserve racial injustice.’ Students taking the course will ‘endeavor to make whiteness strange.’ In order to make whiteness strange, the description says students must ‘interrogate whiteness as an unstable legal, political, social, and cultural construction.’”
3) “A University in the San Francisco Area Actually Told Students To Call 911 if They Were Offended… Administrators at a Catholic university in the San Francisco Bay Area have rescinded an official school policy instructing students to clog up the regional 9-1-1 emergency reporting system to report ‘bias incidents.’
The school is Santa Clara University, reports Campus Reform… Until this month, however, Santa Clara administrators have been instructing students to report ‘bias incidents’ using the emergency service reserved for dispatching police, firefighters and ambulances.
‘If the bias incident is in progress or just occurred: ALWAYS CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY,’ the Santa Clara website instructed students in fierce, all-capital letters.”
4) “Educators in the Volunteer State are very concerned that students might be offended by the usage of traditional pronouns like she, he, him and hers, according to a document from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
…For all you folks who went to school back when there were only him and her – here’s a primer: some of the new gender neutral pronouns are ze, hir, zir, xe, xem and xyr.”
5) “A Professor at Polk State College has allegedly failed a humanities student after she refused to concede that Jesus is a ‘myth’ or that Christianity oppresses women during a series of mandatory assignments at the Florida college. According to a press release from the Liberty Counsel, a non-profit public interest law firm, Humanities Professor Lance ‘Lj’ Russum gave a student a ‘zero’ on four separate papers because the 16-year-old did not ‘conform to his personal worldviews of Marxism, Atheism, Feminism, and homosexuality.’ The law firm has called for a full, private investigation of the professor and the course curriculum.”
6) “College Codes Make ‘Color Blindness’ a Microaggression… wait, what? …UCLA says “Color Blindness,” the idea we shouldn’t obsess over people’s race, is a microaggression. If you refuse to treat an individual as a ‘racial/cultural being,’ then you’re being aggressive.”
7) “The phrase ‘politically correct’ is now a microaggression according to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The university’s ‘Just Words’ campaign is the work of UWM’s ‘Inclusive Excellence Center’ and aims to ‘raise awareness of microaggressions and their impact’ – microaggressions like ‘politically correct’ or ‘PC.’”
8) ) “‘American,’ ‘illegal alien,’ ‘foreigners,’ ‘mothering,’ and ‘fathering’ are just a handful of words deemed ‘problematic’ by the University of New Hampshire’s Bias-Free Language Guide… Saying ‘American’ to reference Americans is also problematic. The guide encourages the use of the more inclusive substitutes ‘U.S. citizen’ or ‘Resident of the U.S.’ The guide also tries to get students to stop saying ‘Caucasian,’ ‘illegal Immigrant,’ ‘mother,’ ‘father’ and even the word ‘healthy’ is said to shame those who aren’t healthy.”
9) “Late yesterday afternoon, ACLJ filed a lawsuit on behalf of Brandon Jenkins against officials of The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) in Maryland for denying Brandon admission to its Radiation Therapy Program in part due to his expression of religious beliefs. As one faculty member explained to Brandon, on behalf of CCBC, the ‘field [of radiation therapy] is not the place for religion.’”
11) “According to Coastal Carolina University, sex is only consensual if both parties are completely sober and if consent is not only present, but also enthusiastic. This is a troubling standard that converts many ordinary, lawful sexual encounters into sexual assault, and it should frighten any student at CCU.”
12) “Clemson University apologizes for serving Mexican food… Students took to Twitter to call the event culturally insensitive and to question the school’s efforts to promote diversity… Clemson Dining issued an apology to ‘offended’ students after hosting a ‘Maximum Mexican’ food day.”
13) “All-Women’s College Cancels ‘Vagina Monologues’ Because it Excludes Women Without Vaginas.”
14) “The ‘Black Lives Matter’ leader who landed a teaching gig at Yale University delivered a lecture this week on the historical merits of looting as a form of protest, backing up his lesson with required reading that puts modern-day marauders on par with the patriots behind the Boston Tea Party.”
15) “Assistant Dean (at Cornell) Tells a Project Veritas Investigative Journalist that the University Would Allow an ISIS Terrorist to Hold a ‘Training Camp’ on Campus, Saying: ‘It Would be Like Bringing in a Coach to do a Training on a Sports Team.'”
Via Campus Reform:
Administrators at Vassar College and Oberlin College agreed to personally shred a pocket Constitution after an undercover reporter posing as a student complained that she felt “triggered” by its distribution on campus.
The video was produced by Project Veritas, a non-profit established by conservative journalist James O’Keefe, and employs a similar style to the undercover ACORN videos that first brought him to prominence.
“Last week something kinda happened on campus that kind of really upset me and I ended up having a panic attack,” the reporter tells Vassar College Assistant Director of Equal Opportunity Kelly Grab. “It’s just I’ve been kind of hiding out in my room ever since kind of scared, so, finally somebody told me I should maybe come talk to you about it and see if there’s anything that can happen or anything… They were handing the Constitution out on campus.”
“Oh, CATO Institute,” Grab murmurs while looking the booklet over.
“They were handing it out and as soon as I saw it you know I started to not be able to breathe, hyperventilating,” the reporter elaborated. “My vision went blurry and I just – kind of just lost control.”
After establishing that the reaction was triggered merely by the offering of copies of the Constitution and not by anything the group had said, Grab offers her sympathies to the reporter.
Dorothy Bland, dean of the journalism school at the University of North Texas, was recently out walking one Saturday morning when she was pulled over by two cops, cops she now accuses of racism.
Bland penned a piece in the Dallas Morning News in which she stated that she was caught “walking while black.”
Bland wrote: “I stopped and asked the two officers if there was a problem; I don’t remember getting a decent answer before one of the officers asked me where I lived and for identification.”
She went on:
I remember saying something like, ‘Around the corner. This is my neighborhood, and I’m a taxpayer who pays a lot of taxes.’ As for the I.D. question, how many Americans typically carry I.D. with them on their morning walk? Do you realize I bought the hoodie I was wearing after completing the Harvard University Institute for Management and Leadership in Education in 2014?
She stated in her column that “I guess I was simply a brown face in an affluent neighborhood.”
Bland used her iPhone to capture the two officers and then their license plate in her picture.
Bland wrote she thought of “dozens” of blacks “who have died while in police custody,” and then posted the article to Facebook “for safety’s sake.” She then stated that she “posted the photo of the officers on Facebook, and within hours, more than 100 Facebook friends spread the news from New York to California.”
Little did Bland know that there was a camera installed in the police vehicle which captured the entirety of the incident.
Corinth Police Chief Debra Walthall replied to Bland’s comments about the incident in a column posted beneath Bland’s in The Dallas Morning News.
Walthall said that the stop was about safety, not race, and that the video from the camera installed in the police vehicle proves it.
In the video, the police officers clearly state the reason she was being pulled over – impeding traffic while walking and listening to her earbuds.
Walthall wrote: “My officers, a field training officer and his recruit, observed Ms. Bland walking in the roadway wearing earbuds and unaware that there was a pickup truck directly behind her that had to almost come to a complete stop to avoid hitting her.”
She also wrote: “Impeding traffic is a Class C misdemeanor, and it is our policy to ask for identification from people we encounter for this type violation.”
Walthall said that after people watch the video, they will be sure that the officers were concerned about keeping her safe.
President Barack Obama enjoyed NCAA women’s college basketball tournament action on Saturday as approximately U.S. 100 troops evacuated a rapidly deteriorating and chaotic situation near the southern Yemen city of al-Houta.
The soldiers – many of them elite special forces commandos – had been stationed at al-Anad air base in the war-torn Arab country, reports BBC News.
The proximate cause of the hasty Saturday exit was a Friday attack on the city of al-Houta by al-Qaida fighters. A quick counter-attack by the Yemeni army has since reportedly minimized al-Qaida gains.
Friday also saw a suicide bomb attack in Sana’a, the capital of Yemen. At least 137 people died in the bombing, for which Islamic State-associated combatants have claimed credit.
Obama sat in a prime seat at the first-round NCAA tournament game at XFINITY Center in College Park, Md. He was surrounded by a group of fans festooned in orange and black — the colors of fancypants Princeton University.
Obama’s niece, Leslie Robinson, plays on the Princeton women’s team, which is currently undefeated for the season.
Princeton, a #8 seed, beat the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay, a #9 seed, by a score of 80-70 on Saturday afternoon.
Fans at the game chanted “four more years,” notes Yahoo! News.
In the fall of 2014, Obama touted Yemen as a War on Terror success story.
Yemen is currently undergoing what amounts to a civil war involving several armed and vigorous elements including al-Qaida and ISIS.
A number of weeks ago, U.S. Marines allegedly destroyed their weapons or simply left them to Yemeni factions before leaving in the midst of an Iran-backed coup.
From the New York Times:
A Bid for Guns on Campuses to Deter Rape
By ALAN SCHWARZ | February 18, 2015
As gun rights advocates push to legalize firearms on college campuses, an argument is taking shape: Arming female students will help reduce sexual assaults… [L]awmakers in 10 states who are pushing bills that would permit the carrying of firearms on campus are hoping that the national spotlight on sexual assault will help them win passage of their measures. “If you’ve got a person that’s raped because you wouldn’t let them carry a firearm to defend themselves, I think you’re responsible,” State Representative Dennis K. Baxley of Florida said during debate in a House subcommittee last month. The bill passed.
Talk about being hoisted on your own canard [sic]. This is the kind of jujitsu that conservatives should do more often.
The sponsor of a bill in Nevada, Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, said in a telephone interview: “If these young, hot little girls on campus have a firearm, I wonder how many men will want to assault them. The sexual assaults that are occurring would go down once these sexual predators get a bullet in their head.”
“Hot little girls”? That isn’t very PC. Ms. Fiore must not be a card-carrying feminist. Therefore her opinions on such matters are meaningless – even mockable.
In addition to those in Florida and Nevada, bills that would allow guns on campus have been introduced in Indiana, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming.
So only red (neck) states really want to protect young women? How telling.
Opponents contend that university campuses should remain havens from the gun-related risks that exist elsewhere, and that college students, with high rates of binge drinking and other recklessness, would be particularly prone to gun accidents.
And yet we let them vote.
Some experts in sexual assault said that college women were typically assaulted by someone they knew, sometimes a friend, so even if they had access to their gun, they would rarely be tempted to use it…
Huh? Then it doesn’t sound like rape rape. (To quote the political sage, Whoopie Goldberg.)
Other objectors to the bills say that advocates of the campus carry laws, predominantly Republicans with well-established pro-gun stances, are merely exploiting a hot-button issue. “The gun lobby has seized on this tactic, this subject of sexual assault,” said Andy Pelosi, the executive director of the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus. “It resonates with lawmakers.” …
How dare conservatives seize upon a made up crisis to advance their agenda? Only Democrats are allowed to do that.
Tell us how you really feel, Donald.
American businessman Donald Trump tweeted out on Tuesday,
“The last thing this country needs is another Bush.”
He’s obviously not alone on that.
The Donald spoke to a crowd at the Marriott Marquis in Washington this week. He has hinted that he will travel to Iowa to test the waters.
Donald Trump charmed hundreds of suits Monday night at the Marriott Marquis in downtown Washington. It was the “Winter Dinner” for The Economic Club of Washington, D.C. Wearing a dark suit, one of his own Trump-branded blue striped ties and the infamous bird’s nest hairdo, he sat for an on-stage interview with club president David Rubenstein, who he periodically showered with compliments.
Rubenstein began with a burning question: “It’s rumored that you’re thinking of going to Iowa soon,” he said, alluding to Trump’s ongoing presidential aspirations.
In fact, he is. For politics and real estate.
No, we do not need Jeb in 2016, or Romney and Trump is using that to play attention whore again. That is what he does, and sadly some people see to actually consider him sincere. I have said it before, I would not trust Trump as far as I can throw his massive ego. Sure, he is saying the obvious, acting as if he has struck some brilliant piece of insight. But he has not, he is about himself, period! As bad as Bush in 2016 would be, Trump would be worse. We have some REAL genuine men of convictions that may run, Perry, Walker, Cruz, to name a few. The last thing we should do is give any thought to taking Mr. Look At Me seriously
