Stanford Student Senate: Matt Walsh Visit Would Produce an ‘Unsafe Environment’

Stanford Student Senate: Matt Walsh Visit Would Produce an ‘Unsafe Environment’

“The protection of marginalized communities is a priority of the 24th Undergraduate Senate”

This is a stupid argument and conservatives should force the left to retire it.

Campus Reform reports:

Student Senate claims Matt Walsh will create an ‘unsafe environment’ on campus

Stanford University’s Undergraduate Senate (UGS) voted 13-0 for a resolution on December 1 to oppose the university’s chapter of College Republicans hosting Matt Walsh in Spring 2023.

The resolution is titled “Resolution to support Queer Students and Address UGS Funding Decision.”

“This resolution mentions transphobia, misogynoir [misogyny directed towards black women], violence, and suicide,” the document warns.

Stanford’s UGS condemns Walsh for a variety of purported moral infractions, such as “creat[ing] a children’s book and documentary that invalidates trans identities and continues to spread harmful messages putting trans and queer people at risk.”

It continues, “The protection of marginalized communities is a priority of the 24th Undergraduate Senate… the UGS has been in contact with student and faculty leaders in Queer Student Resources (QSR) and the Women’s Community Center to decide the best course of action to support queer students on campus in light of this event.”

According to the resolution, the UGS donated $1000 to the Trans Day of Remembrance event in November of 2022.

USG proceeds to emphasize that they do “not stand for transphobic, homophobic, or any form of anti-queer or gender marginalized discrimination on our campus,” and that they believe Walsh’s “presence will create an unsafe environment on campus.”

$1000 was promised to be reserved for “counter programming.”

Walsh’s tour faced protests and unhinged opposition at many other colleges and universities last year.

No, his visit would cause petulant man-girl children to create an unsafe environment.

It would only be unsafe because the alphabet people would pitch a fit and protest/harass Walsh and the folks who invited him. It’s saying “you can’t bring him or we’ll cause a disruption.”

Have a cooler counter-ralley. Make *them* feel left out. This dictatorship of the self-dis-possessed (dis-self-possessed? dissed of self-possession? self-dissed?) is no way to run a social movement.

An identity so strong, everything they hear must support it, or they’re reduced to wails and tears.

A calling so inspiring, everything they encounter must advance their utopia, or they’re reduced to wails and tears (in the unbearable tension of having to know how or why.)

A community so robust, this allyship must make the path ever smooth before them, or they’re reduced to wails and tears (by their toes stubbed on difference.)

A conviction so strong, they must by no means explain or illuminate, or they’re reduced to wails and tears (while they quit, because thinking hard.)

A commitment so strong, the doing must be carried by others, or they’re reduced to wails and tears (after declaring what they want, to everyone around them who want exactly the same thing. Up-twinkles. Go, you.)

Whatever happened to “You, do you.” and “Let your freak flag fly?” You’re not invited to some other kids’ thing, go have a better party. I have myself felt pretty dispossessed from time to time, so far only to find in hindsight that we were having a way better time than the objects of our envy. They just had better PR.

“The protection of marginalized communities is a priority of the 24th Undergraduate Senate… the UGS has been in contact with student and faculty leaders in Queer Student Resources (QSR) and the Women’s Community Center to decide the best course of action to support queer students on campus in light of this event.”

I suspect these people self-marginalize for attention.
