George Washington University Introduces Bias Incident Reporting System

George Washington University Introduces Bias Incident Reporting System

“to create an environment in which others can thrive without fear of hate or bias”

Now GWU students can report thought crimes with greater convenience.

The College Fix reports:

School’s bias incident system allows students to report ’emotional impact,’ ‘verbal harm’

The George Washington University recently rolled out a new bias incident reporting system, a tool that allows students to report a variety of offensive incidents on campus, including ones that have “emotional impact” and constitute “verbal harm.”

The school’s Bias Incident Report form is meant to “make the university aware of [bias] incidents,” according to the site. The school says it is “the responsibility of each person within the GW community to create an environment in which others can thrive without fear of hate or bias.”

Students filling out the lengthy form can do so anonymously or with their personal information included. Reporters must note the “nature of the alleged bias” and the “nature of the incident.”

Options for the “nature of the incident” include “Emotional Harm/Impact” and “Verbal Harm/Impact.” Other incidents on the list include “Offensive Picture or Image,” “Physical Assault/Attack” and “Bullying.”

Great. Now students can anonymously rat out people they don’t like and send the Stasi to harass them. This should be nearly as intimidating as the recent practice of SWAT-ting people you don’t like.

I guess the school needs something to replace the old sexual assault rules, where any girl could have any boy she didn’t like thrown out of the school by filing a phony sexual assault report. Now that DeVos has told them to actually look for some evidence of a sexual assault, that doesn’t work as easily. So now they can file an anonymous report of “emotional harm,” which is impossible to defend against.

“create an environment in which others can thrive without fear of hate”

Apparently, how this system can and will be abused by progressives wasn’t a consideration. Or perhaps enabling them was the point of the exercise.

Authoritarian acts like this are why I have stopped donating to GWU (where I attended law school).

I suppose reports naming the bias system itself and those who created and maintain it as a source of bias would be disallowed?

And what would happen if enough students reported the school’s Title IX apparat itself as a violation of Title IX, due to its all-too-obvious anti-male bias?
