Political Correctness has jumped the Shark

Mount Holyoke College cancels “The Vagina Monologues” because women who don’t have vaginas got their feels hurt. (source)

No. Fucking seriously.

“At its core, the show offers an extremely narrow perspective on what it means to be a woman…Gender is a wide and varied experience, one that cannot simply be reduced to biological or anatomical distinctions, and many of us who have participated in the show have grown increasingly uncomfortable presenting material that is inherently reductionist and exclusive,” the email, obtained by Campus Reform, said. (source)

This is the same All-women’s Mount Holyoke College that recently decided to admit men who “identify as women.” (source) That sorta makes sense to me, but it helps put the issue in context.

But, I can assure you, if I see “graduate of Mount Holyoke College” on a resume that comes across my desk, there will be a rebuttable presumption that someone who chose to go there is not mentally qualified to handle the remote control for the TV, much less have a real job.

For more on this, Simple Justice has a way better post than this one.

    Yet you somehow managed to hire Jordan, who is not only incapable of writing pleadings, but even reading what he signs.

    Sorta makes it a fucking low threshold.

    • An interesting assessment of one a guy who is 10 times more successful than you are — and who is kicking ass at 32 years old, both in terms of respect from judges and other lawyers (as well as having great rainmaking ability).

      Meanwhile, you’re still butthurt and obsessed over getting caught stealing a porn movie what, 8 years ago?

        Well, I wish Jordan all the best. Specifically, to become 20 (or even 30) times more successful than me. Maybe then he will learn how to read pleadings filed on behalf of Prenda-like sham “clients” before signing his name. To be honest, I don’t really care if you employ him or not: as a Polish saying goes, Nie mój cyrk, nie moje małpy (Not my circus, not my monkey).

    What about the transmen with vaginas? Where do they stand on this issue? Inclusivity, you know.

    Who the hell wants to go to a mono-gendered college? How afraid are you of the outside world and of having your preconceptions challenged? Holy shit you fucking whiners, just write your OWN DAMN MONOLOGUE YOU CENSORIOUS TWITS.
