U. Central Florida Student Reported to Bias Response Team for Using the Term ‘Boomers’

U. Central Florida Student Reported to Bias Response Team for Using the Term ‘Boomers’

“This is clearly a violation of the student code of conduct and should not be tolerated by the university any more than calling someone a racial slur”

It was predicted that bias response team policies would be abused. Here you go.

The College Fix reports:

UCF student reported to administration for calling old people ‘boomers’

A student at the University of Central Florida was reported in September 2019 to the school’s bias response team for referring to older people as “boomers” on Facebook, which the complainant considered an “ageist slur.”

“This is clearly a violation of the student code of conduct and should not be tolerated by the university any more than calling someone a racial slur,” the complaint read. “Discrimination by age is clearly protected by federal law as well as your golden rule guidelines.”

This report to the “Just Knights Response Team” was one of over a dozen complaints reviewed by The College Fix. The JKRT complaints were obtained by The College Fix through an open records law request and the identities of the parties involved were redacted by the school.

The reports were obtained as The College Fix continues to investigate the types of complaints that are lodged through bias response teams at college campuses across the nation. More than two dozen universities have been included in the investigation so far since it launched in 2019.

The Fix is exclusively reporting on the bias complaints it received from UCF in 2020 in the wake of a recent court ruling that called into question the constitutionality of the Just Knights Response Team.

The complaints obtained from UCF also include students who were reported for using the n-word and a student reported for not using preferred gender pronouns.

Last week, a federal appeals court not only overturned UCF’s “discriminatory harassment” policy, calling the speech code “an overbroad and content-and viewpoint-based regulation of constitutionally protected expression,” and also suggested its “Just Knights Response Team” may not pass constitutional muster either.

A three-judge panel of the 11th Federal U.S. Court of Appeals unanimously sent a challenge to the school’s bias response team back to the district court for adjudication.

Was your mental stability disturbed by words? You may be entitled to compensation.

He should have said GROOMER!

Hey — I’m a boomer, nigga.
It’s “our word,” and you’re entirely free to use it!
You totally have my permission — which it turns out you don’t even need.

Herb Jefferson, Jr. and Grace Park were Boomers. There, I said it, and I stand by it.

The same institutions taxpayers are picking up the tab for after they provided a substandard education.

This was done by a conservative student as a model example of how uneven enforcement and even monitoring proceeds.

This is so preposterous, I wondered for a second if I was reading absurd satire on the Babylon Bee. Alas, these are actual demented nitwits, at an institution of higher learning no less, doing this stuff. God help us.

I don’t know how many times I’ve been called a boomer, but it doesn’t really bother me. It says more about the person using the term than it does me. However, with such a woke culture being forced down our throats from the young left-wing crowd, I think this is karma. It shows a complete lack of respect.
