Stony Brook University to Host ‘Diversity Cupcakes’ Event

“cupcake toppings will represent different aspects of each individual’s intersectional identity”

You couldn’t make this up. No one would believe it.

Campus Reform reports:

Students use cupcakes, tie-dye in diversity talk

Stony Brook University in New York invites students to express their diversity through cupcake decorating and “tie-dye-versity” in October.

Students can attend an Oct. 15 “Diversity Cupcakes” event, designed to make them aware of “how different each individual can be, without even realizing it.” Attendees will decorate cupcakes “which best defines [sic] their identity.”

Different cupcake toppings will represent different aspects of each individual’s intersectional identity, such as race, sexual orientation, class, and even relationship status. Each frosting color will also signify a certain hobby. Event organizers call it “a fun, colorful, and tasty way” to “create an appreciation” for differences.

Stony Brook also invites students to an Oct. 19 event, titled “Tie Dye-Versity,” where they will “[focus] on creating a conversation on diversity while making tie[-]dye shirts.” Attendees will participate in activities that “make them think on their own identities, explore ideas of diversity, and enjoy a fin [sic] day outside while making their own shirt.”

“These types of events seem like wastes of money,” Stony Brook student Justin Ullman told Campus Reform. “Placing dialogue secondary to a fun event like tie-dying shirts or decorating cupcakes takes away needed focus from the actual dialogue.”

Is it evil to pray for an order mix-up which has only blue and pink shirts delivered to the site?

Woe be to anyone who obliterates the identity of one of these cupcakes by actually eating it.
