#2 If the syllabus consists of racial mathematics, pan-sexual chemistry, transsexual friendly engineering etc. with equal outcome grading systems - thanks.

Intelligent people are better off not going to politicized classrooms.

#3 Now identity politics is f---ing up the hard sciences, threatening to make them into the same kind of affirmative action shitshow that has destroyed the humanities and social sciences.

Heather MacDonald brings the appalling news. Read it and weep.

#4 Reality does not recognize gender (all 57 of them). A bridge works or it doesn't - it doesn't care who designed or built it.
This sort of thing could lead to disasters.

#5 I read it all. Depressing, infuriating and frustrating. MacDonald exposes it beautifully. Her article should be nailed to the UCLA doors.

Project Wakanda. Take over the institutions, agencies and administrations built over centuries of struggle with nature and adversity by the white man. Then use them to indulge in your tribal fantasies and nursing your inferiority issues.

#6 Destroy the Literature and Sociology departments, and our society and economy can still function.

But destroy basic and applied science in this society, and we will very quickly decline and cease to be a great nation.

This is not just appalling. It's terrifying. How do we get these fools out of their positions of power? When will this madness be stopped?

#7 This is why they're pushing STEAM (STEM with Arts) to get that sweet sweet funding for unemployable majors

#8 We need too have a purge, like a Stalinistic purge of all these nitwits who will never contribute too society.

#9 We need all the smart, hardworking people we can get to help invent the future. But a women-only program or special treatment like the extra time on exams as some professor proposed seems like a great way to permanently brand someone as Not The Real Deal when it comes to doing the job.

#10 My favorite bit of BS are the "Engineering Education" idiots. Think rejects from the Education schools coming into the engineering schools to tell the profs they're teaching all wrong.
