Student Files Bias Complaint Over University Event Celebrating Peanuts

Student Files Bias Complaint Over University Event Celebrating Peanuts

“Peanut allergies can be life threatening to some”

There’s a complaint for everything, isn’t there? The student isn’t even allergic to peanuts.

The College Fix reports:

Student files bias complaint over university’s ‘Peanut Day’ event

Back in April, a University of Northern Iowa student — who is not even allergic to peanuts — filed a bias complaint with school officials over a campus event celebrating peanuts.

It was one of 38 complaints filed with the UNI Campus Climate Response Team during the 2018-19 school year. The reports were recently obtained by The College Fix through a public records act request, and the names of the individuals involved were redacted by the university to protect their identities.

Other complaints included an increased police presence at a rap concert, a student who was upset they were directed to the international line because of their accent, and a complaint that a campus book group called White Fragility was entirely made up of white women.

As for the springtime peanut complaint, it stemmed from an event situated around a table at Rialto Dining Hall where students could learn all about peanuts.

They were treated to samples of a variety of peanut products, from ice cream sprinkles to pad thai noodles. Students were able to purchase blue shirts adorned with the words “PEANUT ENVY.” (According to the dining hall’s Facebook page, wearing one of these shirts would make one “the envy of everyone on campus! [winky face emoji]

But not everyone was amused with such a bold celebration of America’s most cherished legume.

The day the event was held, a UNI student contacted the school’s Climate Response Team to file a complaint, saying peanut allergies are a “huge concern” for some students at the school.

“Peanut allergies can be life threatening to some,” wrote the student, adding, “and even when the day is over their [sic] is still risk the air and other surfaces will still be contaminated.”

Celebrating peanuts? Or, celebrating Peanuts, with Charlie Brown, Lucy, Schroeder, PigPen, and Peppermint Patty?

Well, if you have to be outraged over something I guess this will do as well as anything.

The student isn’t even allergic to peanuts.

An excellent example of virtue-signalling: faux outrage on behalf of others.

I wonder if one can still get the T-shirt.

Some people will not be happy until everybody else is unhappy.

Why isn’t this fool filing bias complaints about ice cream socials on behalf of diabetics?

Somebody needs to drop-kick the dogshit out these sort of people.

Bar of Ivory Soap, a sock, let’r wail.

Somebody’s nuts.

Good, flood the bias response system with some different sorts of complaints than the ones they intended to handle.

One of the first black scientists made himself famous by producing many useful products from the lowly peanut and i am forever grateful for peanut butter.

people with peanut allergies never go anywhere w/o their Epi-pen… unless they are suicidal, of course.

as someone who has survived THREE anaphylactic allergic reactions (w*rkplace exposure to a certain class of antibiotics) i am an SME on the issue.

the self-absorbed AH who filed the beef needs a wall to wall counseling session, with “Clue by Four” enhancement, so they might learn the error of their ways…

Being WOKE….the extreme ever present fear and dread that someone or some group somewhere may be happy and/or successful
