‘Freshman’ is too gender-based for Yale. Now, they’re officially ‘first year.’

Published

Yale Snowflakes

For the sake of “greater gender inclusivity,” Yale University is ditching the words “freshman” and “upperclassman.” For the sake of sanity, I’ll officially declare I’m sick of the unnecessary changes being made at indoctrination centers, better known as colleges.

In the whole scheme of things, this isn’t a big deal. It’s all about homogenization. If we can prevent everyone from being offended by making sure inclusivity is the highest ethic to consider in all of our decisions, then we’re sure to make things better for everyone, right? If you even had to think about that question for a moment before answering “no,” you should probably be reading Slate or some other leftist publication instead of one of my articles.

We are creating a generation that is being trained how not to handle real-life situations. It’s almost as if the Dystonian world of Atlas Shrugged is somehow making its way into reality. Things change. I get that. These changes are ridiculous. We cannot continue to turn the future primary contributors in this nation into fragile snowflakes.

Okay, rant over. Let’s see what others are saying:

Yale College Dean’s Office staff members were told about the change in an email last week, according to Director of Strategic Communications for Yale College Paul McKinley. Chun informed Yale College faculty about the change in an email Thursday afternoon.

Emory University nixed “freshman” in 2015 and the University of North Carolina did the same in 2009. Several other colleges, such as Cornell University, Columbia University, Dartmouth College, and the University of Virginia also use “first-year.”

POLL: 75 percent of Yale professors identify as liberal | Anthony Gockowski, Campus Reform

Final Thoughts

Imagine a world where we could go to school and not have to deal with this level of weakness. At the end of the day, that’s exactly what it is. We are building a future filled with weakness where people need something to offend them just to have a reason to wake up in the morning. When that’s the case, eventually they’ll stop even trying.

Whoopi is right about the behavior of UCLA Basketball players in China

Published

on

Whoopi Goldberg

I’m not a big fan of Whoopi Goldberg, okay but I have to tell you that I agree with her regarding the following statement.  This is in regards to a couple of UCLA basketball players who thought they could take something from a store in China and not pay for it.

You embarrassed your families, you embarrassed the country, and you embarrassed the president. Now I’m not a big fan of the president, but the fact that he had to call and get your asses out of there is not anything to be proud of or think is cool.  If this isn’t the stupidest thing a young person has done, particularly if you’re over six-feet tall, and black… is this just the ridiculous stupidity of youth?

Let me add one more thing. You’re an embarrassment to UCLA itself, and their athletic department as well.  Now I am not a big fan of those who run academia, but if these jerks are given the right punishment, I shall give the university credit and praise for doing it.  All right UCLA, the ball is in your court.  Do something right for once.

Goldberg said their families and mentors had no doubt told them numerous times not to do things like this, and she said the foolishness of youth is the only explanation for something so dumb.

Alternative Math: This satirical look at America’s education craziness is sadly too real

Alternative Math

2+2=4. This is fact. Unfortunately, we’re heading towards a society that is so politically correct, we have to take into account feelings when it comes to facts. That’s the point of this satire by Ideaman, and it’s completely ludicrous…

…except that it’s no longer out of the question. With things changing so rapidly, can we really expect a scenario like this never playing out in the real world?
