Precious Snowflakes at Yale are Revolting (UPDATED)

Apparently someone has taken away their precious “safe space” – and by that, I mean voiced an opinion with which they disagree. Because you see, precious Snowflakes at Yale are entitled to wrap their little feelings in bubble wrap to insulate them from any kind of dissent! And if you dare voice an opposing view, Precious Yalian Snowflakes get so much sand lodged in their collective snatches, they simply walk out. And screech. And demand action to destroy the dissenters

How could the Precious Snowflakes of Yale possibly be expected to attend class and learn in a “safe” environment if a member of the faculty fails to take into consideration their fragile feelings?

This is the state of Ivy League education, people.

First, a little background.

On Wednesday, October 28, Yale Dean Burgwell Howard sent an email to Yale’s entire undergraduate student body from the university’s Intercultural Affairs Committee, a 13-member group of administrators from the Chaplain’s Office, campus cultural centers, and other campus organizations. The email, titled “Halloween and the Yale Community,” implored students to be thoughtful about the cultural implications of their Halloween costumes and how they might offend or degrade others, pointing to costumes such as feathered headdresses, turbans, “war paint,” and blackface as examples of inappropriate “cultural appropriation and/or misrepresentation.” Howard sent a similar email to the Northwestern University community in 2010 when he was the dean of students there.

While the committee’s email acknowledged that students “definitely have a right to express themselves,” the committee hoped they would “actively avoid those circumstances that threaten our sense of community or disrespects, alienates or ridicules segments of our population based on race, nationality, religious belief or gender expression.”

Translation: You must give due consideration to anyone who may become butthurt by your costume. No, you will not dress up as anyone from another culture. You may not dress up as an animal, because that’s insensitive to our “otherkin” friends (I just learned the definition of that particular SJW assbaggery, and Holy Fucking Shit in a Blanket! You just don’t want to know! Trust me.  Click that link at your own risk! Seriously! You’ve been warned.) Basically, you may dress up as something innocuous, like a tomato… no… wait. Vegetables have feelings too. Nope. Don’t do that. Just dress up as a white hetero male. That’s acceptable.

Seriously… what in the everloving, breathing, farting fuck?

At least one faculty member chose to challenge the Precious Snowflakes of Yale.

Just after midnight on Friday, October 30, Erika Christakis sent an email to the Silliman community in response to the Intercultural Affairs Committee’s Halloween email. Christakis explained that she and her husband Nicholas had heard from a number of students who were frustrated by the committee’s email. Although the email was allegedly supposed to serve as a recommendation rather than a formal policy, to some, its length, tone, content, and the list of 13 signatories seemed to indicate otherwise.

Christakis drew on her experiences as a child development specialist to question whether a university should dictate what students should and shouldn’t wear on Halloween:

I don’t wish to trivialize genuine concerns about cultural and personal representation, and other challenges to our lived experience in a plural community. I know that many decent people have proposed guidelines on Halloween costumes from a spirit of avoiding hurt and offense. I laud those goals, in theory, as most of us do. But in practice, I wonder if we should reflect more transparently, as a community, on the consequences of an institutional (which is to say: bureaucratic and administrative) exercise of implied control over college students.

In addition to expressing concerns about how policing students’ costumes can limit the exercise of imagination, free speech, and free expression, Christakis asked:

Is there no room anymore for a child or young person to be a little bit obnoxious… a little bit inappropriate or provocative or, yes, offensive? American universities were once a safe space not only for maturation but also for a certain regressive, or even transgressive, experience; increasingly, it seems, they have become places of censure and prohibition.

cry_baby_1_-_iStockphotoWell, as you can imagine, the response was EPIC! The Precious Snowflakes of Yale (I think I’m going to trademark that shit) began collectively hyperventilating, clutching their pearls, and birthing kittens… hell… full grown fucking cattle at this egregious challenge to their precious FEELZ! Worse yet, when Christakis’ husband stood up for her, the Precious Snowflakes of Yale™ went into full turnip mode and began accusing the couple of racism and discrimination. That’s right – RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION – for daring to suggest that maybe the university should lay off controlling its students and allow these ostensibly legal adults some freedom to form associations, make mistakes, mature, and grow, as well as discuss their issues like, you know, adults.

A heated crowd of students encircled Nicholas Christakis after 3 p.m. and accused him of racism and insensitivity, with many in attendance demanding an apology for the email statement, which admonished the censure of Halloween costumes deemed culturally appropriating. They also criticized Erika Christakis’ behavior during an open forum hosted at the Afro-American Cultural House Wednesday night — in particular, her attempt to leave the room before speaking or answering questions directed toward her.

Nope! The nefarious offender needs to be fired at the very least! Yale needs to do something to protect the feelings of its Precious Snowflakes! Their fragile feelz need a safe space – safe from dissent, safe from things they might find offensive, safe from diverse points of view, safe from criticism, and safe from having to adult.

The Washington Post also covered this story, quoting the Precious Snowflakes of Yale™ at length. The entitlement mentality of these sad, inconsequential rodents is beyond unbelievable! They’re entitled to never be offended by anything. They’re entitled to demand everyone bow to their emotions, no matter how unreasonable or irrational. They’re entitled to ensure that anyone who disagrees with them or even voices a slightly dissenting view of their demands is fired. They’re entitled to never have their views challenged.

And if someone does dare to point out that maybe – just maybe – facing adversity, discussing their issues like adults, and working toward mutual understanding are more desirable than thought control, attacks on those who have the temerity to disagree with your point of view, and attempts to destroy the livelihoods of dissenters, they’re entitled to demand retribution due to their butthurt!

Apparently asking college students to act like adults is equivalent to racism.

Apparently treating all college students equally, regardless of skin color, race, gender identity, or sexual orientation is discriminatory, because every special snowflake deserves his/her/its own special treatment, and colleges are just not equipped to handle that daunting task!

And apparently, asking the Precious Snowflakes of Yale™ to be tolerant of others’ views, especially when those views were presented respectfully and in the spirit of tolerance, not just for the Chafed Cunt Club, but for all Yale students, will result in infantile screeching and refusal to accept a diploma from the “offender,” as well as deep and emotional hyperventilating to the press.

Fortunately both Christakis stood their ground and demanded that adults act like adults, and not like petulant children whose daddy refused to buy them a pony making him THE. WORST. DAD. IN. THE. WORLD. “I apologize for causing pain, but I am not sorry for the statement,” Nicholas Christakis said. “I stand behind free speech. I defend the right for people to speak their minds.”

Good luck with that, Dr. Christakis.

The screeching SJW rodents will target you until your lives and your livelihoods are ruined.

They don’t want freedom.

They don’t give a rat’s flying fuck about people’s right to speak their minds.

yoda-wisdom-feminism-sjwsTheir precious rubbed raw labia are much more important than anything you have to say – right, wrong, or otherwise. Your rights, your freedoms, and your insistence on being an individual and thinking independently do not matter in light of their precious butthurt.

This is the society they desire. One day, their shrill screeching will be silenced by another, MOAR underprivileged, victim who will be offended and demand their censorship.

The carnage will only stop once these destructive, authoritarian fools have eaten one another.

UPDATE: The Atlantic… No, really, THE ATLANTIC agrees. 

As students saw it, their pain ought to have been the decisive factor in determining the acceptability of the Halloween email. They thought their request for an apology ought to have been sufficient to secure one. Who taught them that it is righteous to pillory faculty for failing to validate their feelings, as if disagreement is tantamount to disrespect? Their mindset is anti-diversity, anti-pluralism, and anti-tolerance, a seeming data-point in favor of April Kelly-Woessner’s provocative argument that “young people today are less politically tolerant than their parents’ generation.”

Young people today are not just intolerant, they’re bullies, who believe they are entitled to insulation from life, from reality, and from being challenged. 

Voraciousness for learning, for free and unfettered discussion, and for diverse views has turned into a voraciousness for victimhood. 

They believe the volatile emotions they experience outstrip others’ rights and somehow justify their abuses. 

They are embarrassing, not just to their schools, but to this country, and I hope my son is strong enough to stand up and face them like a man as he makes his college journey.

  8. These people (and I use the term “people” loosely) are so invested in the SJW culture they’re completely blinded to the opposite effect they produce. By screeching about “inclusiveness” and “sensitivity” in the manner they do, they are actually creating multiple sub-cultures completely separate and non-inclusive. When people avoid them for fear of somehow further offending them, they use that action as more fodder to screech louder about “inclusiveness”.

  9. Oh, wow. I don’t know how long or how far this PC movement will stretch (maybe indefinitely, until we have no discernible right to free speech or tradition).

    “Worse yet, when Christakis’ husband stood up for her, the Precious Snowflakes of Yale™ went into full turnip mode and began accusing the couple of racism and discrimination.”

    I’ve found knee jerk progressives to be at their most intimidated around intelligent/educated Republicans, so the above response is disappointing but not surprising.

    While I can see some obvious common sense measures (don’t go to a church Halloween festival dressed as a penis, for example), there’s nothing wrong with dressing like an Indian (does this mean little girls can no longer be Pochahontas?) and what have you. Halloween is all about playing dress up and getting to suspend our realities and try something different for just one night.

    “Young people today are not just intolerant, they’re bullies, who believe they are entitled to insulation from life, from reality, and from being challenged.”

    I agree. I’m disgusted by it, confused, and quite frankly don’t understand that level of hypocrisy. One young, entitled person I’m dealing with, for instance, takes an aggressive stand against bullying, infidelity, lying, and discrimination, but engages in the very same behavior themselves. Compounding the problem with people who fly off the handle over stuff like this is perhaps their hypocrisy about it.

  13. RE: I Blame the Vaunted American Public Education System

    For decades now—ever since Jimmy Carter established the so-called Department of Education—public education has been going into the tank. It is so bad now that there’s a report that in one of Pennsylvania’s largest school districts ONLY 19 students taking the SAT scored high enough to be accepted by any college.

    That, combined with the ever-present efforts to boost students self-esteem to astronomical levels, has lead to a generation of self-absorbed infants that are incapable of coping with ‘The World of the Real’, as Morpheus would say.

    As a result, these immature adults think that whining and acting-out will get them what they want from Life.

    It ain’t gonna happen.

    When these people get out of this creche called ‘college’ and into the ‘World of the Real’, they’re going to fail. And then they’ll act-out even more aggressively. But it will avail them not. And many of them, incapable of coping with the harsh realities of Life are going to ‘quit’, e.g., suicide.

    Doubt this?

    Look at the horrific suicide rate in the US Armed Forces. Especially amongst the ground-gaining, combat arms.

    You wanna see the ‘World of the Real’ up close and personal like? Go Airborne-Ranger. Out there, they REALLY ARE ‘out to get you’. And those who have not been mentally/emotionally toughened by the hard knocks of Life are suffering for it.

    Education is supposed to replace an empty mind with an open one. That’s not what is happening in the vaunted American public school system. Instead, these schools are failing to teach History and Civics. This leaves their students with no solid frame of reference from which they can make sound decisions. Especially about electing good people to high office. Look at Obama…..😉

    Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive. Easy to govern, but impossible to enslave. — Lord Henry Brougham

    These people are ready to be enslaved….

    And Obama is just the sort of person to do it for them.

  14. In recent years, about 34,000 high school students apply to Yale each fall; under 2,000 are admitted, to form a class of 1,300. (Other 700 go to Harvard, Stanford, etc.). So for every student standing around a professor, M-Fing him/her, there are 32,000 kids who would like to have that Yale slot. And that’s part of the problem. It’s soooo competitive to get in to Yale that the school is filled with self-important, over-achieving, jealous, stuck-up, hateful kids who’ve been raised in an environment of never being told to STFU. Never had to live under someone else’s rules. It’s all about each “precious snowflake,” to borrow a phrase. Then add the issue that it’s very hard to get into Yale, but harder to get thrown out — unlike, say, Army Ranger or Navy SEAL programs. In a sense, for all the difficulty of getting accepted into Yale, once one is inside the walls there are few standards anymore.

    1. I think you are right about this being a huge factor, Fox. Many Ivy League students have spent their childhoods being hagridden by the fear of ever making a mistake that will cause one of the Authority Figures to lock them out of the “inner ring” (in C.S. Lewis’ sense). Once they’re inside, the temptation to go nuts must be everywhere.
