Progressive students devour their own

This SJW alert makes for painful reading:

As you may have heard, a bizarre new “consent” regime is sweeping across universities. This is an instance of that fad:

A prominent student activist at Oxford University has resigned from a number of societies after admitting she had non-consensual sex with someone.

Actual non-consensual sex is called rape, and until recently was a capital crime. These people are talking about something quite different.

Annie Teriba, a third-year student at Wadham college, said she failed to establish consent during sex with someone she met the NUS Black Students’ Conference.

This person’s gender is unspecified, but Ms. Teriba is a lesbian.

According to student newspapers Cherwell and The Oxford Student, Teriba wrote a statement on her Facebook profile which has since been deleted. It read: “At this year’s NUS Black Students’ Conference, I had sex with someone. The other party later informed me that the sex was not consensual.”

“Later”? Did she mention it at the time? Apparently not. More.

Teriba’s humiliating apology torments have already begun. She has been informed that more is coming, as she is not sorry enough yet.

No one reading the story can fail to feel sorry for Teriba, despite the fact that she was part of the gang for so long. She sounds like someone who just does not have enough insight to see that she too could be squashed. One wonders if she will ever benefit from discovering the ultimate significance of that fact.

From Theodore Dalrymple:

In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

  • Don’t feel sorry for this broad. She is part of the problem.

    One must read “The Black Book of Communism”. Self-recriminations are reported in detail.

    I’m not sure I agree with the writer that the ridicule she’s being subjected to is “disproportionate”. She is a self-imposed victim of the poisonous ideology that she herself has put a considerable amount of effort into promoting, and most likely will continue to promote. I think she deserves every bit of ridicule directed at her. I do however think that an equal amount of ridicule should be directed at the idiot organization that seems to think she hasn’t publicly flagellated herself enough.

      Agreed! Ridicule both and don’t vote for either ever. It’s just painful to watch though. – the writer

    She’s not sorry! She’s bragging! Look at her! SHE had sex!

  • Hard Little Machine

    She should be stoned to death as a witch.

    Contributors who speak german may want to help me but isn’t this the perfect time and situation to use the word “schadenfreude”?
    I also note the total absence of the word “rape” in her apology. It was non-consensual sex. I thought pretty much any act a woman didn’t like could be defined as rape these days, e.g. stare rape but not for Ms Teriba, apparently. I guess we can all start reassuring our feminist acquaintances that there is no “rape culture”, just a non-consensual sex culture.
    Also, her apology sounds to me like a preemptive strike. ” I did this, mea culpa, I regret it and will choose my own punishment. I’ll read a few zines kindly provided by friends even more hypocritical than me and quit a few sjw whiner jobs but I won’t kick myself out of University or call the Police. After all, it was just non-consensual sex. Oh, and I was drunk, so barely responsable for my actions.
    Lastly, imagine if a Man, no matter how “ally-mangina-feminist-intersectional-blue pill” had tried the same stunt of minimizing the gravity of the act and his personal responsability for it.
