The Ivy League Is Decadent and Depraved: Teaching Hatred at Yale University

  After the 2016 election, Isis Davis-Marks published a column in the Yale Daily News in which she declared: “I cannot even function right now.

UCLA and the ‘Diversity’ Cult

Mike LaChance at Legal Insurrection observes: “Diversity is higher education’s unofficial new religion and those who don’t demonstrate enough faith will be punished.” The University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) recently “began requiring all prospective faculty hires to fill out an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion statement, which involves applicants mentioning their past, present and future contributions […]

A World Without Norms: The Influence of Judith Butler’s ‘Gender Trouble’

Feminists protest in Los Angeles, January 2017. “When did feminism go completely bonkers?” That question is sometimes raised when I relate the latest outburst of madness from academia (e.g., “How has the form of your child been culturally interpreted?”) or from popular culture (e.g., Gillette’s advertising attack on “toxic masculinity”).

Too Tall or Too Black? ‘Intersectionality’ in Missouri Harassment Lawsuit

Jeremy Rowles (left) was accused of harassment by Annalise Breaux (right). The increasingly weird world of Title IX enforcement: An official at Mizzou indicated during a deposition that a male student who was physically larger than the female student he asked out may have violated the school’s Title IX policy because his physical size gave […]

Transgender Rage: You Can’t Have a Women’s Symbol at a Women’s College

Mount Holyoke College is a “prestigious” women’s college, in the sense that “prestigious” is a synonym for expensive ($64,658 a year, including room and board). It’s one of the so-called “Seven Sisters” colleges of New England, so if you’re rich and your daughter is a radical lesbian with a mania for social justice, Mount Holyoke […]
