Identity Theft–gender benders–‘some of you answered the ‘Gender’ questions with terms that are not related to gender identity.” Translation: students refused to use the approved words from the “Working Glossary of Terms.” From that long list, students can self identify as: “ftm/f2m”. a “male lesbian” (a male-bodied the person who identifies as a lesbian), Berdache (a third gender person, woman livingman), a “stone butch” (don’t ask), among dozens of other choices. “Male” and “female” have been replaced by “cisgender.” In the brave new world of a thousand genders, such straight students just haven’t evolved yet to their real sexual identity.

Wall of Shame– A free-speech “graffiti wall’ was designated by Ohio University in Athens, OH. What could go wrong?

HIs article title “WHY Conservative Women Are So Pretty,” was bad enough. Scanlon’s subtitle was enough to make a red-diaper baby see redder: ‘The women of the right are allowed to believe things that the women of the left are not. It sets them free to be themselves. And that’s beautiful.” Fighting words to Ms. Kelly, who tore into Scanlon with a savagery last seen when Khomeini issued a fatwa on Salman Rushdie. Kelly, a true woman of the left, diagnoses Scanlon’s problem as, you guessed it: “patriarchy.” He only thought the conservative gals were pretty because they were “conforming to a classic standard of beauty, one that Scanlon as a man has been socialized to find attracitve.
