Mary Atwater, a science and mathematics education professor at the University of Georgia will be studying microaggressions. That’s right. You read that correctly. Microaggressions.
The National Science Foundation has awarded Atwater more than $200,000 of taxpayer money to study butthurt – perceived infractions by the perpetually aggrieved that allow them to claim others’ fault for their failures.
This “high risk-high payoff” approach to supporting new, exploratory work will allow Mary Atwater, a professor in the mathematics and science education department in the College of Education, to develop a potentially transformative venue for reducing racial microaggression, or the subtle, indirect or unintentional discrimination against members of a marginalized group, in science education.
You see, promoting STEM education among minorities is insufficient, so this creature was awarded taxpayer money to find fault with white people for low minority participation in STEM fields.
Never mind that minority participation in STEM fields has been on the rise since 1991.
Let’s put aside the fact that the NSF itself acknowledged that one of the most effective ways to allay some of the apprehensions minorities have with regard to STEM fields is to provide coursework in middle and high school to give students a sense of what STEM courses entail at the college level.
Peter Arcidiacono, an economics professor at Duke University who has studied STEM degree completion rates, cited the need for a better sense of the workload involved with STEM majors.
“Students — both minority and not — don’t know that the sciences require more study time on average and give out lower grades,” says Arcidiacono. “Hence, many students start out in the sciences, both minority and not, but switch out.
“Those with worse preparation switch out at higher rates regardless of race,” Arcidiacono adds.
But no. Atwater seems to think that the reason for lower minority participation in STEM fields is because minorities are perpetually aggrieved snowflakes who apparently see racism and discrimination everywhere, and are failing because they’re just too upset to study… or something.
“This grant can have an impact on the number of African-American and Latino/a faculty members we have in science education,” Atwater claims.
Really? Handing her taxpayer dollars to study ways to to blame normal people for offending sensitive, perpetually aggrieved snowflakes – whether intentionally or not – will impact the number of minorities in science education? My guess is they’ll just find something else to get all butthurt about.
Hell, if I were a black or Hispanic person, I’d be offended by the mere suggestion that I’m too delicate to finish my studies because some white person unintentionally triggered my by asking where I was from!
But apparently, in today’s world, it’s en vogue to blame others for your failures – academic or otherwise – because no one wants to actually assume responsibility for anything.
Sure, it’s much easier to blame others for your shortcomings.
Sure it’s fashionable to play victim and demand compensation because of others who ostensibly didn’t take your precious feelings into consideration in the form of special privileges.
Sure it’s all the rage to blame your deficiencies on someone who offended your tender labia by assuming you were female, because your tits were falling out of your shirt, or someone who had the balls to show interest in you by asking where you were from.
But guess what! Creating blame for uber chafed cunt cakes’ failures to live in the real world and deal with other people as adults and getting taxpayer money for it? That’s a no-go in my book!
Honestly, I could have spent a billion happy lifetimes not knowing about this, but if I have to find out about it, you will know about it too!
Because I’m a giver that way, and frankly, you need to share my misery.
But first, a little bit of background.
Apparently, there’s some Brit named Gavin McInnes, who the left claims is a “Holocaust-denying Nazi,” whose scheduled lecture at NYU was canceled because
screeching leftist banshees tolerant progressives rioted and demanded violence. Now, knowing the tolerant progtards, McInnes probably said something shockingly outrageous like “I disagree with leftist politics,” and for that, he needs to be physically assaulted and prevented from speaking, natch.
Among the most strident voices demanding McInnes be subdued via government force was some psychotic cunt monkey claiming to be a “professor,” who cursed at the NYPD for not kicking McInnes’ ass.
shrieking harpy peaceful progressive lady demanded the police assault a man who was invited to speak to a group of students, because apparently she did not like what he was going to say.
Now, I don’t know McInnes, but apparently he has a history of making inflammatory statements. And once again, the
tolerant toddler left – much like they did in Bezerkeley last week when Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak there – wreaked havoc, set fires, and destroyed property in an effort to silence someone with whom they disagree.
But back to psycho twat.
After her squealing viral tirade, the Internet decided to do a little research into Rebecca Goyette.
And this is where I wish I’d never met the Internet.
Two words: lobster porn.
That’s right. Let that sink in for a moment. The alleged “professor” who screeched at police to attack a man for exercising his right to free speech is a lobster porn “artist.”
I made the grave error of clicking on this link today, which also features a photo of Rebecca sporting a gigantic set of claws. Apparently, this… uh… hobby involves wearing large lobster claws and writhing around on the ground pretending to have sex with men wearing giant cloth penises.
I got about halfway into the article, gagged on my own bile, managed to hold down my breakfast, closed the link, and tried to unsee what I saw.
It was impossible. It burned itself into my eyelids, and no matter how much I rubbed my eyes, I couldn’t get rid of the sight of this grotesque, repellent sea sow, sporting lobster claws and baring her sagging udders for the world to see.
I didn’t want to Google “lobster porn,” because then I would have found “lobster porn.”
I was informed that Goyette also apparently has a website, which I refuse to look up, and refuse to link to or click on. According to her resume, she’s an adjunct professor at Montclair State University in New Jersey. Someone pays her to expose impressionable young minds to her version of “art,” which apparently involves intercourse with pretend penises, while wearing pseudo bondage bands on sagging teats and gigantic lobster claws on her hands.
Please know crustacean coitus – no matter how “artistic” – is just not something I ever want to see. It’s bad enough I was subjected to Crusty McZucchini-Tits over here. Anthropod on human action is not my thing. Not even remotely curious!
But now I’ll never look at seafood the same way again, and you’ve joined me in visual hell!
The left ruins everything!
