Hispanic Transgender Student Kicked Out After Faking College Hate Incident

Posted on | November 27, 2013 | 87 Comments

How predictable was this?

On Nov. 14, [Vassar College] sent a mass email to students advising them that Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT) had received at least six reports in the last few months of hateful and insensitive messages being scrawled and spray painted on student residences. Messages included “Avoid Being Bitches,” “Fuck Niggers,” and most prominently, “Hey Tranny. Know Your Place.”
“This is unacceptable and members of our community should be able to learn and work in environments that are free of hurtful expressions and behaviors,” wrote Edward Pittman, BIRT coordinator and dean of the College for Campus Life and Diversity, in an email to students. . . .
The task force had one student member: Genesis Hernandez, who is transgendered and was also a vice president of the Vassar Student Association (VSA), the student government.
Five days after the email was sent, Vassar President Catharine Hill sent a follow-up email announcing that the bias incidents were hoaxes perpetrated by two students. . . .
[The Daily Caller] has learned that one of the perpetrators was none other than Genesis Hernandez.
Informed sources within Vassar told The DC that administrators pinpointed Hernandez as a responsible party, forcing him to give up his position in student government and leave the college.

This is one of the best campus hate-hoaxes since feminist Meg Lanker threatened to “hate-f**k” herself.

    Bias Incident Response Team,????

    And with a suitable acronym no less. The jokes would seem to write themselves.

    Do they wear matching jumpsuits like Ghostbusters, or are they plain clothed just-the-facts types like Joe Friday? Do they have a special vehicle? Badges? A shoulder patch? Being Vassar I doubt they are armed, but sometimes you never know…

    Armed? Oh yes, with stacks of paperwork to warm any bureaucrat’s heart if they had one.

    BIRT. Talk about an overinflated sense of self-importance. You just know these were the kids that nobody paid any attention to when they were younger. And that, boys and girls, is where bureaucrats come from.

    The Left project and when they see nothing coming at them from the Right, they make stuff up to justify their position and victim-hood. Sad.

    I have taught my children the concept of “Love, Hate and Indifference.”

    All of us have heard of “Love & Hate” and most know what indifference is, but the three go hand-in-hand.

    “Love & Hate” take effort, but Indifference takes no effort.

    98% of all relationship between people are based entirely on indifference, which takes no effort whatsoever.

    “Hey Tranny. Know Your Place”

    Exactly who would waste the effort to scrawl that message on a wall ? First, it requires Hate which requires effort. It’s so much easier to just ignore the “tranny” .. indifference.

    On the other hand, not all liars are gays. Obama is a prime example. Oh, I won’t claim to know where he has poked Mister Happy, but he’s no more gay than he is straight – the only person he has ever loved is himself.

    Actually I have known quite a few gays who were well adjusted. But there does seem to be a strong statistical correlation between homosexuality and extreme histrionics. An interesting example is George Takei. Now, he was never the most butch person around, but since coming out he’s been playing the flaming queen and making Nathan Lane look like Chuck Norris.

    It’s not hard, really. You’re born with the dangly bits, you’re male. You start with the tucked in bits you’re female. Snipping them off or sewing them shut doesn’t change that.

    And now I hereby denounce myself. Self, to the gulags!

    I’m guessing rainbow colored jumpsuits. With long silk scarves. And heels, of course.

    Well, the guys wear heels. The female members wear comfortable shoes.

    You’ve gotta flavor it with a touch of irrefutable vagueness, e.g., ‘I blame the climate of mistrust engendered during the Bush Administration.’

    I don’t dislike gays for being gay. I dislike specific gays for being assholes. Much as I dislike specific Asians, blacks, hispanics, women, other white people, atheists, bible-thumpers, etc. Hell, I’m willing to assume specific Muslims weren’t involved in/cheered on trying to drop buildings on my family…twice. I leave broad-spectrum hate for my progressive betters.

    George Takei.
    I find it interesting that nobody knew he was gay (until he came out) but was claiming that being gay held him back in Hollywood.

    Now, that’s not true. But gays seeking the public eye through deceit, arrogance and self-entitlement really do bring a unique flavor to it.

    ‘The female members wear comfortable shoes.” I denounce you for sexism. All ‘non-penii bearing members wear comfortable shoes’ is the correct phrase.

    Bonus points if you reference a chilling effect. But watch the juxtaposition of “chilling” with “warming” or you risk losing credibility.

    Well, if you have any credibility.

    Does the phallocracy run purgatory? No, wait, on reflection your basic EEO organization is the only unit suited to do it.

    They manage to make most organizations up here resemble purgatory anyway.

    […] In August, I mentioned Peter Yu, who was expelled from Vassar College in what K.C. Johnson called  “The Dubious Rape Trial at Vassar.” And last week, there was another Vassar story: “Hispanic Transgender Student Kicked Out After Faking College Hate Incident.” […]
