Great article on college in the age of the "safe space"

http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/0...s-colleges

Quote:This spring, at Oberlin, I tracked down Cyrus Eosphoros, the student who’d worried about the triggering effects of “Antigone.” We met at the Slow Train Café, a coffee joint on College Street, one of the two main streets that make up Oberlin’s downtown. (The other is called Main Street.) Eosphoros is a shy guy with a lambent confidence. He was a candid, stylish writer for the school newspaper and a senator in student government. That day, he wore a distressed bomber jacket and Clubmaster glasses. His hair was done in the manner of Beaver Cleaver’s, with a cool blue streak across the top. Eosphoros is a trans man. He was educated in Mexico, walks with crutches, and suffers from A.D.H.D. and bipolar disorder. (He’d lately been on suicide watch.) He has cut off contact with his mother, and he supports himself with jobs at the library and the development office. He said, “I’m kind of about as much of a diversity checklist as you can get while still technically being a white man.”

Yale English students call for end of focus on white male writers

Undergraduates at Yale University have launched a petition calling on the English department to abolish a core course requirement to study canonical writers including Chaucer, Shakespeare and Milton, saying that “it is unacceptable that a Yale student considering studying English literature might read only white male authors”.

The prestigious Connecticut university requires its English majors to spend two semesters studying a selection of authors it labels the “major English poets”: “Geoffrey Chaucer, Edmund Spenser, William Shakespeare, and John Donne in the fall; John Milton, Alexander Pope, William Wordsworth, and TS Eliot or another modern poet in the spring”.

Its intention, the university says, “is to provide all students with a generous introduction to the abiding formal and thematic concerns of the English literary tradition”. The poems the students read, it adds, “take up questions and problems that resonate throughout the whole of English literature: the status of vernacular language, the moral promise and perils of fiction, the relationships between men and women, the nature of heroism, the riches of tradition and the yearning to make something new”.

But students have launched a petition calling on Yale to “decolonise” the course. They want the university to abolish the major English poets requirement, and to refocus the course’s pre-1800/1900 requirements “to deliberately include literatures relating to gender, race, sexuality, ableism, and ethnicity”.....

^^^^^

Seriously, this is affirmative action for shit black poets.

Let's do a comparison.

Shakespeare's Sonnet 18:

Quote:Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to Time thou grow'st.

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

In place of that, the yokels of Yale would substitute token blacks like Maya Angelou, who traded off her pigmentation her entire career:

Quote:Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Fucking doggerel. It's the sort of shit a low-esteem 15 year old girl writes while she watches LaQuaysha and Miranda get followed around by every player on the football team.

One interesting thing I've learned in philosophy is that morality and aesthetics (ex. beauty, art) are linked in a metaphysical way.

Therefore just as leftists jettison morality in favor of "pervert rights", they also jettison all traditional notions of art and beauty as well, to the point that "art" can simply mean whatever the person "feels like it mean's".

To the point that while masterpieces like the Creation of Adam used to be considered art; today a Kindergarden quality doodling of Jesus menstruating is "art".

Just as the far left wants to do with morality, they also want to do with art. I'm sure they'd love to burn Michelango's paintings while idolizing a giant statue of Santa holding a butt-plug:

Quote:Ithaca College launched a weekly diversity discussion circle in response to last fall’s student demands, but not a single student has attended either of the first two sessions.

Reminds me of when rape awareness reared its head on the campus where I went to college. Volunteer 'safety patrols' were organized to escort any women home who requested our services. No lone males could do the escorting. We had to be accompanied by a woman as well. I reported for duty one night a week for a whole semester. Not a single escort request every came in.

Thank Christ most of these people, especially that tranny thing, will never reproduce. It'll help eliminate this insanity from the gene pool.

RE: The Campus Protest Master Thread
The NYT reports that Columbia University (home of mattress rape girl) is suspending the wrestling team for private group messages that were said to be lewd, misogynistic, racist and/or homophobic.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/15/sports....html?_r=0

The actual texts are never shown so we have no way of knowing what this is really about. The campus news service claims they are not releasing them for the protection of those targeted in the messages (not the authors of the messages). Haven't they heard of redaction? They could at least mention some of the specific language used. The fact that they aren't releasing them suggests that we're talking about relatively tame language. Or may they don't want to launch a campus-wide triggering.

To those who take a narrow definition of free speech and say that universities and public employers are within their rights to police speech, remember: these were private messages by students. It's about the kind of society we are moving towards. Free speech Isn't Free.

I call for all Columbia university officials to immediately release all their private text and emails communications (redacted as necessary by a third party). How the heads would fall!
