An Ivy League what? Education? Get real.

Dartmouth students demand; president promises more talks

“The demonstrators had a 72-point manifesto instructing the college to establish pre-set racial admission quotas and a mandatory ethnic studies curriculum for all students. Their other inspirations are for more ‘womyn or people of color’ faculty; covering sex change operations on the college health plan (‘we demand body and gender self-determination’); censoring the library catalog for offensive terms; and installing ‘gender-neutral bathrooms’ in every campus facility, specifically including sports locker rooms.

….

The president “left after an hour and told the little tyrants that he welcomed a ‘conversation’ about their ultimatums. They responded in a statement that conversations—to be clear, talking—will lead to ‘further physical and emotional violence enacted against us by the racist, classist, sexist, heterosexist, transphobic, xenophobic, and ableist structures at Dartmouth.’ They added: ‘Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack.’"

Sometimes you want to say: You want to be a martyr for your cause? Step this way.

Search for number of students involved: One site said about a dozen.

said “more than 30.”

My diploma has “State University” in the title, but I still learned some stuff.

It is to laugh. And laugh.
