Snowflake Watch

 

Citizens have 911. Employees have the EEOC. Distressed sailors have the Coast Guard. But what do America’s college students have? Where can they turn when they find themselves outside campus “safe spaces” and suffering a “microaggression”?

Fortunately, the University of Arizona has an answer. It recently distributed a 20-page booklet suggesting to faculty that when a student is victimized by a microaggression the appropriate response should be saying “ouch.” And the correct response for the offender should be saying “oops,” according to the guide.

“If a student feels hurt or offended by another student’s comment, the hurt student can say ‘ouch.’ In acknowledgement, the student who made the hurtful comment says “oops.” If necessary, there can be further dialogue about this exchange.”

The guide is a laugh riot. It would probably take a year for the typical Humanities/Liberal Arts degree seeking snowflake to fully digest the case scenarios, and the approved reactions to them. It was authored by Jesus Treviño, vice provost of the big taxpayer-funded university, whose salary reportedly is $214,000 per year.

For those unfamiliar with the apparently epidemic scale of microaggression and thus not able to spot such offenses, the booklet offers a definition: Microaggressions are “the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.”

The University of Arizona isn’t the first to suggest the “ouch”/”oops” protocol. Iowa State University, among others, has also urged a similar approach.

I too have a word, actually an acronym, for these poor little easily traumatized swishers :

    If you are suffering form a “micro-aggression” it might be because you have a puny brain. Here Snowflake, put on this “Make america Great Again ” tin foil hat and everything will be okay.

    • Terry says:

      Those MAGA hats ain’t made out of tin foil. They’re made out of U.S. Steel ! The hats the snowflakes wear are made of lead…NOTHING seems to penetrate them.

  2. If micro-aggressions become a crime, you realize we’ll ALL be arrested, right?

    My rising from bed begins with expletives (oy, f**k!) and my day is filled with tormenting everyone I encounter. For example: who did your hair, a squirrel?; nice wig – Walmart?; good morning, hair lip!; what’s that cologne, eu d’ diaper?; nice dress, matches my shower curtain…etc. No one, no thing is sacred! NONE!

    I greet folks with “hey, shitbag” and bid everyone a rotten day on parting.

    Do I qualify for the “Snowflake Adjustment” Class?

    • Terry says:

      You sure do HEA. If you can find a teacher who can stand to be around you. Heeheheheheee….

      • I’m just as good at flattery as I am insults, my friend. After a plethora of compliments is when I ask them “why are you so stupid”. That’s when their short-circuit begins, (Johnny 5-style), and I walk away, smiling…

  3. Hardnox says:

    Oh for crying out loud. This is absurd. As I have said before, we need to remove the warning labels on everything and let circumstance remove the dumbasses from the gene pool. Meanwhile a cup of STFU is in order.

  4. Skip says:

    Dear Hadenoughalready, Yes you do qualify for the “Snowflake Adjustment” Class.

    When can you start and the $2,557 enrollment fee can be paid by Paypal, CC or VIA student load.

    • That’s great! I’m looking forward to the parties, aka, protest classes. Do you accept EBT cards? If not, will Pesos or Rubles suffice (I’m all out of Canadian Loons)?

      • I.R. Wayright says:

        Loonies would be perfect for paying tuition for a class full of Loons.

        • Well, it’s a shame I gave them to the Benevolent Order of HN&F Employees Fund ’cause Terry absconded with the entire account, sending it to his Nigerian Banker.

          I’ll gather my Rubles and Pesos and print what I’m short of A.S.A.P.

          • Terry says:

            HEA…you just wait until I collect the 500% return he promised. We’ll see who is laughing then !

            • SafeSpace says:

              Hey Terry: Just send HEA one of those Nigerian prince-type emails, promising him $6MM provided HEA sends you an earnest money payment of, oh, say, $5K….

              • Terry says:

                I’d be happy to, SS. First HEA has to send me his SS# , bank routing #, check acct. #, DOB, and a copy of his BC.

              • He already did and when I tried to open it my security went haywire. So, without thinking, I automatically filed a “phishing scam” complaint.
                I hope this didn’t hurt Terry’s chances at that elusive and fictitious banking scheme… I’d hate to see a grown man wail like a paid mourner at an Italian funeral…

                • Terry says:

    Until colleges are purged of these so called educators, I think parents should use their hard earned money to buy a car or take a vacation. These losers won’t be employable anyway.

  7. Uriel says:

    You guys are too funny – maybe a YouTube HNF “You Know You Are A Snowflake When” show…..like minds here guys see my trillion dollar “bailout” ‘report, it will make you puke.

    • Oh, honey, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet, kid! This only get’s better.

      Where Terry’s moderately imbalanced, and I’m not right in the head, these conversations could well go over the top; even for those on Prozac. Haldol, even…

      And who needs YouTube? We’ve got Hardnoxandfriends, which should be renamed to “Hardtoherdcatsandbathethem”, instead.

      As for your “bailout report”, I’ve got half a bottle of brandy left – go for it. I’m ready…
