The SJW war on us thread

Postby ed » Thu Jul 21, 2016 11:27 am

From Australia

http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/parent ... 1537b18ad6

CLAPPING has been banned at a Sydney primary school which has introduced “silent cheering”, “pulling excited faces” and “punching the air” to respect students who are “sensitive to noise”.
The school now only allows its pupils “to conduct a silent cheer” when prompted by teachers and says the practice “reduces fidgeting”.
Elanora Heights Public School, which is on Sydney’s northern beaches, announced its new “silent cheer” policy in its latest school newsletter.
The latest example of a political correctness outbreak in Australian schools, which have banned hugging, singing Christmas carols, celebrating Australia Day and singing the word “black” in the nursery rhyme “baa baa black sheep”.
The ban on clapping at Elanora Heights Primary School emerged on the same day that an exclusive girls school banned teachers from calling “ladies” or “women” in favour of “gender-neutral” terms.

Can we not use the word 'triggered' please???

It contains the word, 'trigger' which evokes a gun. It's too traumatizing.

Feminist conference says clapping ‘triggers anxiety,’ asks attendees to use ‘jazz hands’ instead

The NUS in the UK makes our campus SJWs in the US look sane. The NUS is actually organized around this nonsense.

Maybe that's where I remembered it from. For some reason I seem to remember the mustached bald guy from Arrested Development saying something like that. Probably my mind mixing that story and something else similar

Arrested Development is a fucking trip to watch. I didn't see it the first time, but discovered it on Netflix recently.

I have to admit I kind of have the same reaction to those photos. He is privileged little twat. Not his fault, but the photos are just oh so precious.

The State University of New York at Albany has canceled a basketball game at Duke University. Officials say the game would violate New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's ban on nonessential travel to North Carolina, a ban enacted because of a state law requiring individuals to use the bathroom matching the gender on their birth certificate in government buildings.


There is no major university less likely to discriminate against trans people than Duke, but once you accept the principle of collective punishment ...

Kinda like how people starve to death in North Korea while their portly leader gets fatter and we pride ourselves on being so hard on them?

Ithaca College Professor Stopped Teaching About Sexual Violence Because Students Complained
'This triggers me' is the new 'my dog ate my homework.'


"I had no way of knowing who in my class maybe had survived rape, had been subjected to some kind of sexual assault, who maybe had been subjected to something they had forgotten about," Plante said.

As it turns out, a whole lot of students claimed to be trauma victims. Eventually, Plante discovered that so many students were opting not to complete coursework because it triggered them that there wasn't a point to teaching the difficult stuff at all:


https://theithacan.org/news/ithaca-coll ... ng-debate/

Joan Bertin, executive director of the NCAC, said she thinks this has become a heated debate in recent years because millennials don’t understand how trigger warnings create censorship. Bertin, an advocate against trigger warnings, said professors see students’ demands for trigger warnings in the classroom as a way to avoid dissenting opinions — something the older generation has fought hard to voice.

“Trigger warnings also define specific content as ‘sensitive,’ although we know that people respond very differently to material,” Bertin said.

Some professors at the college, including Michael Smith, associate professor in the Department of History, let students know of sensitive material in the course but do not think of their actions as trigger warnings.

“At the beginning of the semester, I will say, ‘Look, we’re going to be studying U.S. history since the Civil War,’” Smith said. “‘There are lots of difficult things that happened in U.S history — there are lynchings and wars and violence — and that’s part of history, unfortunately, but that’s going to be part of this course.’”

Like Smith, Carlos Figueroa, assistant professor in the Department of Politics, said he provides a written statement to students before teaching controversial material, which he said many other professors do, too. Figueroa said he does not classify this as a trigger warning but thinks of it instead as a courtesy to students.

While Figueroa and Smith said they are willing to be flexible with students who do not want to participate, they tell their students that the sensitive material is important in learning about a particular subject.

It's just part of The Pussification of America.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

There are people who are genuinely psychologically scarred and who are triggered in the genuine sense of the word.

There are also people who have an unrealistic sense of entitlement, or who have not outgrown the lies we tell our children about the world, and they seem to want reality to be changed to what they imagine it should be. I suppose it is more complicated than that. A sense of fair play and justice may be at play but I don't really know. I do know that not talking about a difficult subject doesn't change reality.
