Christina Hoff Sommers gets Trigger Warnings at Georgetown

Christina Hoff Sommers gets Trigger Warnings at Georgetown

“Do these people call themselves adults?”

New Post – Oberlin Radical Feminists Freak Out at Christina Hoff Sommers.

——————–

You may remember Christina Hoff Sommers of the American Enterprise Institute as the Factual Feminist.

We’ve linked her outstanding work at College Insurrection many times.

Ms. Sommers spoke at Georgetown on Thursday night and some students took it upon themselves to label the event with trigger warnings.

Here are some more tweets via Twitchy:

On a related note, Instapundit points to a message for “straight white men” from an attendee of an event for the Association of Writing and Writing Programs. No trigger warnings here:

MESSAGE TO STRAIGHT WHITE MEN: “SIT DOWN AND LET US ABOLISH YOU.” The left isn’t even trying to hide its eliminationist fantasies any more.

UPDATE 4-20-2015 — by WAJ — I just learned that former Cornell undgrad and Legal Insurrection writer/intern Laurel Conrad, who now works for the Clare Booth Luce Policy Foundation, was the organizer of the Sommers event!

The event Facebook page is here, and a follow up blog post by the Luce Foundation here.

Laurel provided me with an email the opponents of Sommers’ speech sent out before the event. It read, in part:

Tonight, Republicans are hosting an extremist anti-feminist speaker that dismisses and denies survivors of sexual assault and the real harm of rape culture. Current College Republicans leadership has not been willing to do simple things like add a trigger/ content warning, or clarify why they felt it was appropriate to bring this speaker into our community.

“MESSAGE TO STRAIGHT WHITE MEN: “SIT DOWN AND LET US ABOLISH YOU.”

Well, no, honey. I might sit down, but I shoot pretty well from a sitting position.

You can consider that a real, actual “trigger warning”.

On the other part of the post, Christina Hoff Sommers is the hawtness. And, if you can’t listen to someone as nice and rational as she is, you really need some mental help.

Why does the image of someone sticking their fingers in the years and chanting “La la la! Nonny Nonny boo boo, I can’t HEAR you!” come to mind?

As for the “Sit down and let us abolish you” message, this comes to mind:

You don’t mind if I stand, do you?

    As far as they are concerned, an aspect of my male privilege is that I can pee from either the standing or sitting position. So if they approach me and say I gotta go, well then …

    Nah, it’s worse than that. They don’t just want to never have to hear you. They want to make you shut the hell up. By force if necessary. Because reasons.

    Humperdinck, Humperdinck!

You can’t abolish me, you dumbasses! I gots white privilege!

    Or you could tell them to consider what alternatives they are giving us.

    For example, if we were to become a Muslim, then we could join millions upon millions of me who think it is just fine to beat your many wives, have a woman killed with a public beheading simply because she is just accused of committing adultery, mutilate a woman’s genitals so she can’t enjoy sex, partake in honor killings, call for sharia law, and abolish any female privilege we can think of including driving a car because Allah thinks so highly of them.

    In a nutshell, pardon the pun, 50 shades of Islam.

Deny individual dignity. Deny intrinsic value. Narcissistic indulgence is a trigger warning.

I am a survivor. I escaped the occult’s abortion rites. I am more than a clump of cells. Pass it on.

I am more than the expression of my genes. I am not specified by the color of my skin. I am diversity personified. Pass it on.

Let’s see. Trigger warnings. Survivor. Color.

What these orchid-children need is about 8 weeks with a Marine drill instructor.

Isn’t the words “trigger warning” a trigger warning? Woah I think I just blew my mind!

And as far the snowflakes at AWWP, I think Obama needed white men (dumb ones at least) to get elected.

Why do I suspect none of the snowflakes at AWWP are actually able to support themselves through their writing?

Hey, sweetheart with the glasses: How about abolishing everything that was invented and created by straight, white men? (That includes democracy and freedom of speech, as well as electric power.)

I am deeply offended that they put their safe space in Maguire 101.

Asking if these people “call themselves adults?” is way behind the curve.

The questions should be, “why are we tolerating lunatics holding the highest offices in our nation?” and “why we are we tolerating the biggest cowards holding the highest offices in OUR political party?”

Spring break, Obama-style:

I am surprised that no one put out a trigger warning for the “rose Fitzgerald Kennedy”sign. After all, she did give birth to a number of boozers, philanderers, a murderer of a woman, adulterers, anti-feminists, etc. Oh wait, all of her offspring were democrats. Nevermind.

They are mollycoddled children who are going to doom this nation and western civilization in general.

Our enemy’s don’t give a rat’s for “trigger warnings” or any other psycho-therapeutic-babble so beloved of the left and whackademia.

Sooo glad I’m shut of that scene!
