How sad, how ridiculous.

Zitat
A 22-year old female University of Utah student reported her business professor to campus administrators for, among other things, assigning too many historical texts written by influential male economists of the past.

“I understand the importance of studying the work of those before us and the importance of context,” wrote the student in a complaint to the university’s bias reporting system, where she labeled the professor’s transgressions “derogatory,” “degrading,” and “intimidating,” thereby causing a “hostile learning environment.”

The report also accused the professor of frequent sexist language, but the bulk of the complaint centered on his assigned readings for the business course.

“I believe it to no longer be necessary when teaching the foundations of our country’s economic system and those who helped build [its] ideals to be presented in conjunction with their sexist beliefs that have already planted their roots within our global and local communities,” the student stated in her complaint, filed in December 2018 and recently obtained by The College Fix through a public records act request.

The complaint was among 27 bias reports lodged at the public university in the Fall 2018 semester, according to the results of the request. The documents provided by the University of Utah redact all personal identifying information.

In the female student’s bias report, she stated that while her professor “never applauded these philosophers on their sexist beliefs,” he “never outright said they were wrong” and “continued to place them upon a pedestal.”

Maybe she'd be satisfied if these male authors had sex changes posthumously...

NYC leaders complain city has too few statues of women. Wait till you hear their proposed ‘fix’
By Howard Portnoy
June 2, 2019

Statue fever has come to the Big Apple. This time, however, the focus is not on tearing down or rewriting the past, but on “equal time” or — as New York’s first lady, Chirlane McCray, put it — correcting the “‘glaring’ imbalance in the city’s streets and parks.” McCray, who will be remembered by future generations of New Yorkers for her inability to account for the $850 million her husband, Bill de Blasio, entrusted to her for a mental health project, is quoted by the New York Times as having said:
[quote] We pledged to do better by the leaders, achievers and artists who have not gotten their due in the histories written by men.[/qupote]

So who will become future targets for the city’s legions of pigeons? Billie Holiday, Elizabeth Jennings Graham, Helen Rodríguez Trías, and Katherine Walker. Except for Holiday, a noted jazz singer, who indeed?

Graham, the Times writers inform us, was something of an early Rosa Parks, who in 1854 boarded a New York streetcar without noticing the sign refusing service to black people. Rodríguez Trías was a pediatrician who worked with sexually abused children and those susceptible to AIDS, and Katherine Walker was a lighthouse keeper (as opposed to a light housekeeper) at the turn of the twentieth century.

As has been noted in connection with Black History Month, when you have to go digging around in “Famous First Facts” for people to honor, you’re pushing the envelope.

But the best is yet to come. Yesterday, McCray was out speechifying again, this time in front of the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in Greenwich Village that Barack Obama designated a national monument, where she announced that two more women who “lived their truth” would be memorialized in bronze. The two, Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, were gay rights activists who made their living — wait for it — as drag queens.

And there you have it. A city with a shortage of statues recognizing women will celebrate the lives of two who were equipped with male plumbing.

No wonder we can’t have nice things.

DOAH!!!

Another example of DEMOCRAT logic, shamelessly and recklessly imposing itself on the rest of us.
