California State University, Monterey Bay student Erika A. Perez Montes is queer, part of the “Latinx” community, and wrote a senior Capstone project on microaggressions in the LGBTQ+ community, reported The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The abstract says “This autoethnography is about different points in my life where I committed microaggressions towards the LGBTQ+ community specific to different genders, sexual orientations and/or how people in the community present themselves.”
As though the term “microaggression” weren’t enough by itself, Erika divides it into three categories: microinvalidations, microinsults, and microassaults. I’m guessing her paper would be a macroassault on all of our intelligences. So for her first microaggression, she apparently took a picture of her friend’s “goofy” smile and put it on Facebook with the caption “haha, look at this faggots [sic] weird ass [sic] smile.”
She says “At the time I did not think anything of it. I can also recall that I said the word ‘faggot’ a lot as a term of endearment, even though now I don’t think there’s anything endearing about it….A lot my ‘friends’ at the time said that word and somehow I adopted it. I can’t say that word without doing a big gulp before I say it or even type it now.”
Erika proceeds to confess that she assigned a gender to a drag queen and unfairly made distinctions between gay and “too gay.” And you know, okay, that’s great to hear, Erika, but I’m not your friend and I’m not your priest. This is like me writing an academic paper on how I, a schizophrenic, only flicked the light switch on and off 19 times before bed instead of 20 times. I’m someone who wants to learn something from your work, something other than your missteps in being nice to others or adhering to paranoid leftist dogma.
Antifa Vs. Pro-Life ‘Christian-Fascist’
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, is visiting California State University this week and Antifa is not…too…pleased, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“NO! Kristan Hawkins! Resist the fascist anti-women agenda!” says Refuse Fascism. “This week, fanatical anti-feminist Christian-Fascist Kristan Hawkins, who has ties to the very top of the Trump/Pence Regime will be touring campuses to spew her misogynistic, anti-women poison.”
I love how they say she has ties to Trump/Pence like that’s a stand-alone insult — talk about preaching to the choir; at least TRY to win me over. And then the anti-woman agenda and poison…you know, the anti-woman agenda and poison supported by…oh, I dunno…50% of women. The group says “WE WILL BE MEETING IN THE QUAD – Look for the black and white NO! Signs.” You know, black and white are very fitting colors for a group that sees every issue through such a schizophrenic black-white binary — either you’re a goodthinking comrade or you’re a Nazi.
“The anti-choice agenda being pushed by Trump/Pence and their fascist movement is nothing less than preparing…the ground for a real-life ‘Handmaid’s Tale,’ with women completely enslaved and subordinated to a patriarchal order.”
But okay, let’s take a look at this Antifa group orchestrating the protests. Here’s Refuse Fascism’s really innovative Facebook profile picture: “Immigrants stay! Trump Pence must go.” That’s right. There’s a war on immigrants. Not illegal aliens, not even undocumented immigrants, but immigrants. By the way, I think these kinds of lazy, deceptive rhetorical tactics make immigrants who put in the time and effort to come here legally pretty upset because you’re lumping criminals into the same group as them. Refuse Fascism’s motto seems to be “in the name of humanity, we REFUSE to accept a fascist America.” Well, I’m sorry, but as we’ve already established, even your leading academics can’t agree on a definition of fascism, and so I kindly reject you as the spokesman for humanity.
