…University of California Santa Cruz… bias reporting system to alert campus leaders that their feelings have been hurt or they have been called mean names by peers – complaints then probed by administrators.
…they will expand the program… with a seven-member administrative Bias Response Team deemed to be “the first responder to bias-related incidents.” (do they get a yellow and pink flashy light for their Bias Response Prius? V)
The team consists of the dean of students, director of counseling, campus chief of police, vice provost for academic affairs, associate vice chancellor of educational services, associate vice chancellor of safety services, and the campus diversity officer for students and staff.
An emergency response Bias Response Team. So what sort of things do they investigate?
a student upset because a peer said “You’re a guy. Dress like a guy.”…
a student upset because people “talk badly behind my back and text … mean things about me.”
a student upset because people clapped instead of snapped at a student govt. meeting…
Shit, I forgot that last idiocy. You’re not supposed to clap anymore and apparently, if you do, it’s a hate crime.
I guarantee that I will clap for the rest of my life. And if people tell me it’s a hate crime and I need to snap my fingers instead? I’ll applaud their efforts while laughing in their faces. Of course, I’ll probably be arrested over that. Such is life in this Age of Idiocy.
The first two I quoted are just dumb. Jebus. People talk about you behind your back and you need to call your university mommy to make it better?
Okay, that’s so utterly ridiculous I can’t even figure out how it makes me feel. Sorta laughing, sorta cringing, sorta just sad for the state of our civilization. These are the people who will be our next crop of “adults” who are supposed to keep the country working.
I guess I need to go to my safe space.
