Dartmouth faces new challenge

Remember how I said that, with respect to the political left, the fringe now constitutes most of the carpet? Dartmouth offers another example in the form of a gaggle of self-professed victim groups trying to extort special privileges.
…a bunch of students who refer to themselves as "Concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students" wrote a letter to administrators at Dartmouth to threaten "physical action" if the administrators do not respond to their list of demands.
Among their many interesting demands is one I find completely baffling: “Incorporate into each department at LEAST one queer studies class.” Really? Literally “each” department? Is there such a thing as queer physics? Queer math? Perhaps non-Euclidian geometry fills the bill.

Queer Phys Ed would be a hoot to watch.

BTW, just now I learn that I went thru my entire educational experience without the benefits I should have received for being Differently-Abled.

That does mean "nerd", right?

Queer Math is easy.

1+1=0 and you don't have to learn multiplication.
The division is hard though, everybody is divided by h8.

Queer Physics isn't bad.

Reading the list is instructive, to wit: it's just another grievance industry shakedown.

Just change the word "quantum" to "queer" in "quantum physics": these jokers wouldn't understand the difference

Well, quarks already have color, charm and spin, no reason a few couldn't be queer.

Could explain antimatter. The slightest friction and they go off.

Deborah.... I've had enough of this bullying nonsense. It is time to take action wherever it happens.Hopefully Dartmouth will file police action, and expel all members of this organization. If their parents are footing the bill, they need to be advised that their little darlings are disrupting the campus rather than engaging in seeking education.

How would horticulture work?

Business owners should post a sign in the window and behind the counter: "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone."

The Progs haven't realized that they are making the so-called "oppressors" into the "oppressed". Heads are sure to explode.

Clearly no LGBT types take physic or math.

I've got a queer foot at the moment. Does that make me homophobic or gowtophobic?

No, just a tramp.
