University Bans The Phrase “Trigger Warning” Because It Might Be… Triggering

Also bans ‘picnic’, ‘rule of thumb’ and ‘take a shot at it’ because they are ‘racist’ or ‘violent’… or something

An arts college in Waltham, MA has banned the use of words and phrases it deems to be ‘violent’ or ‘racist’, replacing them with bland alternatives in an effort to prevent anyone from being offended.

The Daily Mail reports that Brandeis University has “created an anti-violence resource called the Prevention, Advocacy & Resource Center which provides information and advice to students and staff.”

Among the phrases to have been banned are, ironically, ‘trigger warning’ which had to go because of its association to guns, along with ‘take a shot at it’ for the same reason.

Similarly, ‘take a stab at it’ and ‘killing it’ have been described as ‘oppressive language’ and replaced by ‘try’ and ‘great job’. “If someone is doing well, we don’t need to equate that to murder!” the college’s explanation reads.

The University also claims that the word ‘picnic’ is “often associated with lynchings of black people in the United States, during which white spectators were said to have watched while eating, referring to them as picnics or other terms involving racial slurs against black people.”

Picnic is derived from the French ‘pique-nique,’ which means bringing your own food or wine to a meal.

Nevertheless, the college has decided it’s racist and dangerous and suggests ‘outdoor eating’ as a replacement.

 ‘Rule of thumb’ is another phrase that the college has banned because they claim it derives from “an old British law allowing men to beat their wives with sticks no wider than their thumb.”

That isn’t true, but facts don’t matter when the woke mob is offended.

In addition to the ‘oppressive language’ category, the college has also compiled hit lists of ‘identity-based language,’ ‘language that doesn’t say what we mean,’ ‘culturally appropriative language’ and ‘person-first language.’

A disabled person should be referred to as ‘person with a disability’, and a homeless person must be called a ‘person experiencing housing insecurity’.

The report states that the university is encouraging students and faculty members to submit further ‘oppressive words’ to be considered for banning.

Many on social media immediately compared the university’s move to ‘Newspeak’ in Orwell’s 1984:

This policing of everyday language at universities is far from an isolated incident.

As we reported last week, Oxford University alumni have slammed attempts by the Student Union there to employ “sensitivity readers” to vet, edit and place trigger warnings (oops I mean ‘content notes’) on the institution’s oldest newspaper in order to resolve ‘problematic’ articles.

In addition, students at Manchester University have demanded that the word “black” when used as a negative expression such as the word “blackmail” should be banned because it is “divisive.”

This notion comes directly from race baiters like Ibram X. Kendi, who continually claim that anything with the word ‘black’ in it is racist against black people.

There are now ‘debates’ happening at universities where it is being suggested that using correct grammar is akin to white supremacy, and that ‘non standard’ language is seen as “linguistically, morally, and intellectually inferior” not because it is regularly grammatically incorrect, but because black people are using it (Many many white people also use grammatically incorrect language, but again, facts don’t matter).

recent study by leading education focused think tank Civitas, found that free speech at the world’s leading universities is being eroded at an alarming rate owing to the rise of “cancel culture”.

Universities are in danger of becoming breeding grounds for revisionist history based on extremist political movements made up of individuals who are obsessed with declaring everything racist.

‘Sexism’ Row Erupts Over Not Enough Parasitic Worms Being Named After Female Scientists

Clown world strikes again.

Published

A sexism row has erupted over concerns that not enough newly discovered species of parasitic worms are named after women.

Yes, really.

Concerns are being raised as to whether “gender bias” has played a role in naming the creatures after a team of scientists led by parasitologist Robert Poulin “scoured studies in eight journals published between 2000 and 2020,” reports Sky News.

“Of the 596 species named after eminent scientists, only 111, or 19%, recognised women, according to the experts from New Zealand’s University of Otago.”

According to the study, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, “We found a consistent gender bias among species named after eminent scientists, with male scientists being immortalised disproportionately more frequently than female scientists.”

Of course, the reason more of the creatures were named after male scientists is that men are more likely to choose to study science subjects in the first place.

Therefore there are more male scientists to choose from when deciding who to name species of creatures after.

It has absolutely nothing to do with “sexism,” just as more men working on oil rigs or on construction sites is due to natural biological differences between men and women and the choices they make.

The fact that any of this is even being treated seriously is another damning indictment of how mainstream science has been warped by intersectional nonsense and the culture wars.

Men and women are different. They have different primary character traits and as a result are more likely to want to pursue different careers and life choices.

That’s not “sexist,” it’s scientific biological reality. Deal with it.

Rafael Nadal Slams Wimbledon Banning Russian Players

“It’s not their fault what’s happening.”

Tennis legend Rafael Nadal has slammed Wimbledon’s decision to ban all Russian and Belarusian players from their tournament, asserting, “It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment.”

Last month, Wimbledon organizers confirmed that players from both countries would be barred from competing in the tournament even if they have vocally opposed the war in Ukraine.

The announcement means that top players like Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev will not be able to compete at SW19 this year.

Players had initially been expected to be given an opportunity to perform an act of ideological subservience by denouncing Russia in order to be able to take part, but now even this won’t be enough.

All-time grand slam wins leader Rafael Nadal criticized the ban as being “very unfair” on his “Russian mates” and colleagues.

“Poor them…It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment,” Nadal told reporters.

“In that sense, I feel very sorry for them,” he added, asserting that the organizers had taken a “drastic” position.

Nadal said blocking Russians and Belarusians from competing would also mess up the tennis ranking system.

“The 2,000 points, whenever we go to the grand slams, they are really important and we have to go to those tournaments. So we will have to see the measures that we take,” he said.

Nadal joins fellow generational talent Novak Djokovic in denouncing the measure, with the Serb calling the decision to ban Russians and Belarusians “crazy”.

As we highlighted last month, Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina demanded that Russian and Belarusian players be subjected to ideological purity tests before they are allowed to compete in international tournaments.
