A female professor at The University of San Francisco is promulgating an idea that should enrage feminists, but probably won’t: she wants colleges to compensate female faculty members for their “emotional labor.”
On Friday, Natalie Hopkinson of Howard University wrote a piece for Huffington Postsuggesting that school choice was — you guessed it — racist. Why, pray tell, is it racist to remove your children from failing public schools and attempt to place them in schools where they are likely to receive a better education? Because the real reason you want your kids out of those schools is to avoid black and brown people. Or something.
A university lecturer has cancelled a class due to be held in a church for fear it would offend his LGBTQI students.
University of Technology Sydney communications lecturer Dr Timothy Laurie emailed his students two days before lectures were due to begin saying class was cancelled due to ‘the suitability of a church as a venue’.
In this episode, Steyn talks to Lindsay Shepherd, a young Teaching Assistant at Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada who became a cause célèbre across the Internet at the end of 2017, when three members of the faculty attempted to destroy her life for having the temerity to show a short Jordan Peterson public television clip to her students. Miss Shepherd pushed back, with great success, and has since become a popular speaker across North America on issues of freedom of expression.
“The University of Southern Maine is hosting a lecture next month on “reproductive justice in the age of Trump” and how supporting abortion counters “white supremacy and male supremacy.”

Do the parents footing the bill for their idiot offspring know about this?
KINGSTON, Ontario, March 6, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — A mob disrupted a presentation by bestselling author and freedom-of-speech hero Jordan Peterson yesterday afternoon.

Here we have a CND university, Trent, holding an event titled: “It’s OK to be against whiteness”. Events like this belittle and villainize whites in the name of “diversity” and “social justice.” Thus, events like this are recruiting tools for the far-right. Wake up, Trent U! https://t.co/HIG8h6rY9u
Pilloried for her politically incorrect views, University of Pennsylvania law professor Amy Wax asks if it’s still possible to have substantive arguments about divisive issues.
There is a lot of abstract talk these days on American college campuses about free speech and the values of free inquiry, with lip service paid to expansive notions of free expression and the marketplace of ideas. What I’ve learned through my recent experience of writing a controversial op-ed is that most of this talk is not worth much. It is only when people are confronted with speech they don’t like that we see whether these abstractions are real to them.
Too few Americans are qualified for the jobs available. Male working-age labor-force participation is at Depression-era lows. Opioid abuse is widespread. Homicidal violence plagues inner cities. Almost half of all children are born out of wedlock, and even more are raised by single mothers. Many college students lack basic skills, and high school students rank below those from two dozen other countries.
We then discussed the “cultural script”—a list of behavioral norms—that was almost universally endorsed between the end of World War II and the mid-1960s:
Get married before you have children and strive to stay married for their sake. Get the education you need for gainful employment, work hard and avoid idleness. Go the extra mile for your employer or client. Be a patriot, ready to serve the country. Be neighborly, civic-minded and charitable. Avoid coarse language in public. Be respectful of authority. Eschew substance abuse and crime.
A presentation at the University of Michigan will deal with the subject of pederasty, or sex between men and boys, with the professor giving the speech apparently hoping to “dignify and redeem” what he calls “intergenerational modern pederastic relationships.”
The workshop, scheduled for today and titled “Pederastic Kinship: Deidealizing Queer Studies,” will be presented by Kadji Amin, assistant professor of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Emory University, according to an event listing on the University of Michigan’s website.
Hosted by the university’s Doing Queer Studies Now “interdisciplinary workshop,” it will explore the “kinship form” of “modern pederasty.”
A professor who teaches a “white racism” course said there is “no such thing as black racism,” in an article Monday.
Florida Gulf Coast University professor Ted Thornhill teaches a course entitled “White Racism” and defended both the course and his assertion that black racism did not exist, in an op-ed republished on The Conversation.
Thornhill quoted American Sociological Association President Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, who said that racism constituted power plus systemic privilege.
A study conducted at the University of Saskatchewan claims that a lack of diversity in video games has a negative effect on players that’s akin to facing “everyday” racism.
CBC reported on Sunday that Cale Passmore, a researcher at the university’s Human-Computer Interaction Lab in Saskatoon, believes that a “lack of diversity” in racial and ethnic representation in video games has a negative impact on players. To that end, he released a 92-question survey to “almost 300 Americans” to solicit feedback for his study.
