UTK “diversity officer” delivers possibly the most ridiculous political correctness edict yet.
Maybe xe will change xir mind when xir job is eliminated by the legislature.
It’s hard to make this stuff up. Resident UTK political correctness hack, Donna Braquet, actually posted the article below on the unicersity’s information system. Even more remarkable was that Braquet was actually paid to do so. Read the whole thing. It’s hard to comprehend a more idiotic and asinine diatribe, even from the wooly-headed liberals at the state’s land-grant university.
Mrs./Miss/Ms./Mr. Braquet heads up something called the Pride Center for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (it’s right down the hall from Office of Stupid Services and the Dept. of Removing One’s Head from One’s Butt). Here is Braquet’s advice to students and faculty. RTP has helpfully highlighted the most idiotic passages. It was hard to choose which statements were the most stupid, since the entire piece is a politically correct pile of nonsense:
Aw, c’mon. Tell us she made those words up.
But, hey, maybe anyone can play the “let’s make up a word to prove our leftist ignorance” game. Here’s a new word: “bulitch.” Let’s practice using “bulitch” in a sentence.
“Bob finally tired of listening to his college professor try to indoctrinate him with zir Marxist bullcrap, so he bulitch-slapped zir just to shut zir the hell up.”
Here’s another gender-friendly politically correct phrase liberals should love: “nolegul alluns,” as in:
“Instead of securing our border, why don’t we let all the nolegul alluns who broke into our country stay here, put them on welfare, and make them vote only for Democrats? Man, wouldn’t that be bulitchin’?”
More from Mrs./Miss/Ms./Mr. Braquet:
“We should not assume someone’s gender by their appearance…. People who do not identify within the gender binary may use…pronouns of the gender identity, rather than the pronouns of the sex they were assigned at birth.”
Can anyone please tell us what the hell this chucklehead is talking about? Everywhere across the land, doctors in delivery rooms are saying things like, “The baby’s out and doing fine. It has a penis. So should we call it a boy, or should we just make up a third sex so as to show we are no longer the misogynistic racist homophobes the reactionary right-wing professors taught us to be when we were in med school?”
“Or we could just say: “Congratulations, Mrs. Johnson. It’s a Caitlyn.”
Our favorite line, though is this one:
“These may sound a little funny at first, but only because they are new. The she and he pronouns would sound strange too if we had been taught ze [them] when growing up.”
Yeah, sort of like how strange it would sound now if when we were little we had been taught the “N-word” was actually a term of endearment.
Oh, and what are Braquet’s qualifications for being UT’s Head Matron of Political Correctness? It’s probably not because she/xe is the librarian for the Biology Dept. (which she is), which requires an intimate knowledge of the Dewey Decimal system and frog dissections. No, it is undoubtedly because Ms. Braquet was also the director of the university’s LGBTQQ diversity center (yeah, we had to look that up too). The “QQ” stands for “queer and questioning” (swear to God we are not making this stuff up).
Well we got a question for Ms. Braquet. How about the 99.9% of the student body who are not “gender challenged?” Think they might need someone to be their advocate? Nah. They are probably too busy exerting their white privilege and “manspreading” to worry about what you freakin’ weirdos are cooking up down at the local LGBTQQ-WTF? bar.
Here’s another thought – let’s take these gender neutral pronouns to Neyland Stadium. Let’s see what happens when the Vol’s quarterback tries complimenting the defensive tackle for Alabama for delivering a good hit with a sporting comment like:
“Nice play. Xe sure grow xe big down in Alabama. Is your #2 parental unit at the game today? I bet ze is really proud of zir little boy/girl.”
After the Bama linebacker punches the snot out of our quarterback, he will likely double back and give the xyr a kick in xyr’s doo-dads just to punctuate his point.
Paying the salaries for intellectual imbeciles like Mrs./Miss/Ms/Whatever Braquet certainly justifies all those tuition increases, doesn’t it? Any legislator want to take this one on? It’ll be like shooting fish in a barrel.
As we go to press, we have still heard no condemnation or public comment of any kind from the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the university regarding the latest in a string of public relations disasters (remember Sex Week, butt-chugging and Lane Kiffen?). Who’s the chairman, you ask? Gov. Bill Haslam.
But seriously, knowing Haslam’s track record, did you really expect xir to say or do anything? It’s sort of like xe’s the state’s first gender neutral governor,
