Peter Fricke of Campus Reform brings us the latest in Special Snowflake Syndrome derangement – students at Brown University, who are complaining about being forced to do actual *GASP!* homework between their activism! No, I really wish I was kidding. Legal adults, complaining that having to actually study in college is making them stressed and upset, because they’re too busy being good little Howler Monkeys for social justice. Emotional outbursts, panic attacks, and other assorted asschafery has caused an inability on the Snowflakes’ part to actually do what they came to college to do – study!
“There are people breaking down, dropping out of classes, and failing classes because of the activism work they are taking on,” an undergraduate student going by the pseudonym “David” told The Brown Daily Herald Thursday. “My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now. Counselors called me. I had deans calling me to make sure I was okay.”
See what these little douche pickles want is a pass. They want a pass from having to work and achieve good grades. They want a pass from having to think and learn. They want a pass from effort. They want a pass from life.
They demand special accommodations, such as extensions on homework and tests, because it’s just stressing them out too much to have to live up to their obligations! They would rather be petted on their pointy little heads and told how special and different they are, and how their social justice
activism whining deserves special treatment. And if you don’t comply with the SJW demands…. RACIST!
Liliana Sampedro, one of the students who compiled the diversity ultimatum, argued that refusal to grant such accommodations “has systemic effects on students of color,” who she said may sometimes feel obligated to prioritize their activist work over their studies.
“I remember emailing the professor and begging her to put things off another week … I hadn’t eaten. I hadn’t slept. I was exhausted, physically and emotionally,” Sampedro recalled. The professor nonetheless insisted that she submit a previously-assigned research presentation on time, which she claims forced her to stay up late to finish the project after having already spent hours working on the list of demands.
For those of you who are shaking your heads in disbelief at the lack of fortitude and integrity on the part of these entitled Snowflakes, just know students at Brown aren’t the only ones whining about having to actually do the work they came to college to do. Whining bitch nuggets at Oberlin got triggered because a professor refused to grant them an exam delay for the Snowflakes who were too emotionally exhausted to take their statistics final. Meanwhile, Columbia Law School actually granted a delay to infantile fuckwits who were “traumatized” by the grand jury failure to indict police officers in the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Harvard and Georgetown students followed suit in their demands for similar special treatment.
Remind me to ensure that I never, EVER, hire anyone from Colombia, Harvard, or Georgetown law schools. I’m not even kidding. If these coddled morons can’t prioritize their work over their butthurt, they have no business in MY workforce!
Micro- or macroagressed? Too bad! I look for intestinal fortitude in my workers. I look for integrity. I look for an ability to balance work and life, and an understanding and respect for the priorities of the mission. If you can’t turn in an assignment by the suspense date, and insist that your employer’s priorities take a back seat to your own activism, you shouldn’t be working there!
If you claim that you are stressed, physically ill, and too upset to do the work you were hired to do, you need to go elsewhere.
If you cannot even take a simple exam on time, because you were too busy indulging your chafed labia and demanding that others follow suit, as a professor, I’d tell you to get the fuck out of my office!
Welcome to real life, Cupcakes! Now deal with it!
