    Good grief

    President of the Southampton Student Union to stand down immediately

















    Daniel Lake started this petition to Southampton University Student Union and 1 other



    Emily Dawes, the Southampton University Student Union president should apologise and stand down immediately regarding her offensive comments made using her work-associated Twitter account. Dawes vowed to remove the mural in the university Senate room, threatening to vandalise it herself due to it depicting ‘white men’. The mural in fact depicts the young men who left Southampton University to fight during the First World War receiving their degrees which many of them did not return to receive. Not only that, but it is a memorial to all those who died during the conflict. Dawes’ comments, fuelled by the simple fact that the men in the mural are white, are unacceptable and offensive to the vast majority of students who choose to support remembrance. Therefore, this is an unacceptable abuse of an elected position to further her own political agenda, and, as admitted by the Student Union, is not in line with their ‘mission or values’.

    Reasons for signing














    David Tant·2 days ago

    I’m signing because this sort of toxic leftist propoganda needs to be be nipped in the bud, right at the source (higher education establishements). We collectively understand our social duty to fairly represent all in our society better than ever, which is a good thing. To do so at the expense of our history, our values and most importantly our forebears… Read more

    If media is to be believed, there seems to be an almost rabid anti white, male and anglo fervor in universities.

    Editor’s note: For the past year scholars James Lindsay, Helen Pluckrose, and Peter Boghossian have sent fake papers to various academic journals which they describe as specialising in activism or “grievance studies.” Their stated mission has been to expose how easy it is to get “absurdities and morally fashionable political ideas published as legitimate academic research.”

    To date, their project has been successful: seven papers have passed through peer review and have been published, including a 3000 word excerpt of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf, rewritten in the language of Intersectionality theory and published in the Gender Studies journal Affilia.

    The three scholars peer reviewed paper that got rave reviews from the nutcase professors/lecturers included one about male dogs
    acting like male doge at the off-leash park areas,as in annoying or humping bitches.
    So, in the nutjob femnazi University world it portrays how men are scum and violent.

    I blame dubbya, and latterly (and moreso) Trump. What worse examples of white males that hold supposedly esteemed positions?

    And trying hard for extra credits. But, to be fair, if she actually is, then she was insecere in her tweet and simply trolling.

    I suspect everyone's favourite orange chimpanzee is the consequence, more than the cause, of rabid anti-white-male political loonacy.

    Eh? I suggest you rephrase that. I think I know what you were trying to say, but I'm not sure.

    They do have a history, white guys and their minions, of this type of activity the world over.

    My sons friend whom attends a Qld university informs me that the students have been instructed to use He/She when referring to anyone that has not specifically informed them of their gender or their assignments could be marked down.

    Surely that's only when it's unclear of the subject's gender and thus normal procedure? It's not PC BS to write "he/she", but common decency and sense, and accurate writing.

    Subject's gender is always questionable, hence our urgent need for gender neutral. Not sure of the details but earlier this year in Britland a bloke was elected/nominated director of Women's something or other, by claiming he identifies as a woman on alternate Tuesdays, or some idiocy on those lines.

    At another level, could you be arrested or otherwise compromise your career and life by referring to a woman as a woman, even if she had earlier identified as a woman, but just before your comment decided to identify as a bloke? Think carefully before committing yourself, I would.

    They're seriously fcuked up, the madness of a few drives others mad.

    The point was the gentleman in question did it to highlight the stupidity of it all. The position was for a woman (only) and the rules said that the candidate had to "self-identify" as a woman. Think he got suspended by his political party for that little stunt.

    Seems to be a big thing nowadays this "self-identification" malarkey.

    As a side point, you could imagine the uproar if a position was only open to a man. Complete double standard.

    My initial thought was 'what the bejesus is a "university Senate room??"' quickly followed by 'I bet a lot of knob-heads hang-out in that sort of place' and rounded off with a 'meh'.

    This sort of thing has been happening forever at universities. I got elected onto the Law Students Society at uni via a vote from fellow students and then some slapper already on the committee decided that there were already to many males so unilaterally and unceremoniously ditched me for the chick I'd beaten in the vote.

    But if that sort of thing is the greatest challenge you face as a white male and you're whining about it you need to harden the fuck up... I only cried about it for a couple of days... three, tops.

    Humans with XY chromosomes are male.

    Humans with XX chromosomes are female.

    Humans with XXY chromosomes are intersex but we can make them honorary males for the purposes of simplifying things and to make female sport fair.

    Anyone can choose to identify as any gender, race, or species that they want to in the privacy of their own heads but no-one else has any moral obligation to recognise these effete ideas. They can choose to out of courtesy if they like.

    A Jamaican once told me that Red Stripe beer was “good for the wood”.

    What happens to women who drink it. Do they have cause to complain about incomplete specifications on beer?
