First They Came for The Skinny Bitches Wearing Yoga Pants

Student leaders have pulled the mat out from 60 University of Ottawa students, ending a free on-campus yoga class over fears the teachings could be seen as a form of “cultural appropriation.”

Jennifer Scharf, who has been offering free weekly yoga instruction to students since 2008, says she was shocked when told in September the program would be suspended, and saddened when she learned of the reasoning.

Staff at the Centre for Students with Disabilities believe that “while yoga is a really great idea and accessible and great for students … there are cultural issues of implication involved in the practice,” according to an email from the centre.

The centre is operated by the university’s Student Federation, which first approached Scharf seven years ago about offering yoga instruction to students both with and without disabilities.

The centre goes on to say, “Yoga has been under a lot of controversy lately due to how it is being practiced,” and which cultures those practices “are being taken from.”

The centre official argues since many of those cultures “have experienced oppression, cultural genocide and diasporas due to colonialism and western supremacy … we need to be mindful of this and how we express ourselves while practising yoga.”

        A group of my friends sends out a weekly 5 minute stress break email. I could forward it to BCF so he can send it on to you.

          Sure!

          • Exile1981

            I’ll send him the complete last 8 months of them for you.

            Just sent the 30 stress break emails to BCF for forwarding.

    Perhaps if everyone agreed to wear bourkhas during Yoga sessions the “objections” might just melt away?

    Is there anything beyond WTF?

      Without actually resorting to a combination of sacrilege and profanity, your answer is NO.

      But I share your consternation.

        How about WTFF? (What the F***in’ F***?)

    I just lost a whole whack of sympathy for students with disabilities, didn’t you?

    • Exile1981

      Actually it wasn’t the disabbled students that complained
      It was a single annonymous complaint told to the interim student prez… who then started this witch hunt.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Yeah, disabled was a smokescreen for some cultural studies major who was appointed to a position of authori-tay in the student union on an affirmative action acclamation to exert his twisted view of the world on reasonable people.
        Or as Olivia Chow would say, peepoe.

        • Exile1981

          Since the class has done tons of good for the disabled students over the years maybe the complainer just hates disabled people. Or reallylikes bitching about made upcrap.

    I am ashamed to say I have two univerity degrees from U of Zero.

    • Waffle

      I lived there one summer while working for the Feds and getting my degree at York. Highlight — seeing Tommy as a rock opera at the National Arts Centre and getting a contact high. Or maybe it was the rock ballet version. I forget.

  • ontario john

    Are there more pictures so I can get a firm opinion ? Perhaps they should replace it with a whiny indian class on how to get to the nearest liquor store.

    • Xavier

      I already have a firm opinion.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I try my best for my wife, but my firm opinion doesn’t last as long as it used to .

  • tom_billesley

    They’ll suspend use of reading and writing until they can establish from which cultures those practices are taken.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      Hmm, if they started forbidding any activity that didn’t originate from one’s own cultural group I think I’d only be able to study Beer Brewing 101.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Don’t forget math and science.
        And everything else that made the rise of Western Civilization possible.
        The only thing I’ll give the Indians is that they had some guy smart enough to think of zero.

        • tom_billesley

          They’ve been contributing zero most of the time since then.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    They should hold a mass pro-yoga protest outdoors in the centre of the campus; call it a “Stretch-In.”

  • Kathy Prendergast

    Next they’ll be going after tai chi.

    “there are cultural issues of implication involved in the practice,”

    Stupid left wing fascists. Now they are arguing against their own argument for multiculturalism – that the diversity of practices it brings to us enriches our culture.

    If we can not take the good from these cultures and make it our own, then there is ZERO reason for allowing multiculturalism and all of its negatives.

    We should start deporting them now. Multiculturalism is a failure and is detrimental to social cohesion.

    • Exile1981

      good points.

  • Ed

    All you “black lives matter” “cultural appropriation” idiots… Stop appropriating our central heat. That’s OURS. Turn the thermostat down. By February we can talk about whether yoga is ok.

    • Carlos_Perera

      Actually, Ed, the Romans had a form of central heat, the hypocaust:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypocaust

      Please send a $5.00 check to a resident of Rome, randomly selected from the telephone directory, every time your thermostat turns on the heat.

      No need to thank me for acting as your multiculturalist conscience.

      • tom_billesley

        Roman citizens were mostly white.

        • Carlos_Perera

          Yeah, but their heyday was two millennia ago (give or take a century) . . . and they weren’t part of Anglo-Saxon civilization. Don’t tell me you’re trying to appropriate their culture!

          • tom_billesley

            Most of Britain was occupied by Celts who took on a Romano-British culture during centuries of Roman rule, then Anglo-Saxons accepted Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church with Latin rites, and Latin was the language of all official and legal business and records until the late 14th Century, and beyond that in science and diplomacy. Latin was the lingua franca throughout Europe.
            European culture in general directly descends from Greek and Roman civilizations. Heck, civilization is a Latin word. More than half of the vocabulary in modern English is derived from Latin either directly or through Norman French. New worda are coined from Latin roots.
            The Latin moto still prevails in western civilization, for example “A mari usque ad mare”

          • Carlos_Perera

            Tom, Tom, get a grip. We know all that. My remarks were made tongue-in-cheek, to mock the demented campus multiculturalists who do things like suspend a yoga class because it might be be an instance of cultural “appropriation,” as if that word even makes sense in the context of cultural interactions.

            Ave atque vale.

  • Shebel

    That lady sure don’t look like a Muslim.

  • Cat-astrophe

    For just a brief moment reading the Trump story about the black lives matters guy getting the boots on the ground, I felt that was maybe inappropriate. Maybe….
    Now reading this I realize, no, it was justified.

  • Hard Little Machine

    White people pretty much invented the English language. Ban black people from using it.

    • Cat-astrophe

      They speak English?

  • Cat-astrophe

    Maybe they can ban public Muslim prayer, I find it very offensive when they block the streets with their cultural yoga.

    Best headline I’ve seen in a while! Lol
