Feathered Dust Up
PIG News Wire [05/31/14]
Siberian Americans have their feathers frazzled over the antics of certain University of North Dakota inmates. According to a University Daily News story, the 'tribal' leaders' are pounding their war drums, demanding that the inmates in question be expelled. What's their problem? They're outraged by a t-shirt worn at an off campus party:
Several tribal leaders, many of them former students of the University of North Dakota, met with representatives of the institution and the North Dakota University System on Monday at the state capitol in Bismarck about the issues. They also discussed creating an atmosphere of "respect n university campuses throughout the state."
"Expel them. Expel the students. Zero tolerance," Standing Rock Tribe Chairman David Archambault said during the meeting, according to Campus Reform.
The controversial shirts have a picture of the school's old mascot, the Fighting Sioux, drinking out of a beer bong. The shirt also bears the words "Siouxper Drunk." Students wore them earlier this month to Springfest, an event at a public park near campus.
Siouxper Drunk? I like it.

The talent show did go on, at North Dakota government school, but one group of performers were thrown under a school bus thanks to a whining bitch who deemed it offensive. The first-grade class at Bennett Elementary School (Fargo) got black flagged, when one parent, Elaine Bolman, pinned an "OFFENSIVE" label on the plan to dress up like the Village People to sing 'YMCA'.
Is she a holy roller whining about DA GAYS? Nope. She's a Progtard who is whining about young 'uns dressing up like Siberian Americans.
The kids were supposed to come up dressed up like members of the '70s group - a policeman, a cowboy, a biker, a construction worker and a Native American.
Parent Elaine Bolman found it offensive that her daughter or her classmates would be asked to dress up like a stereotypical Native American caricature.
"I'm not in a position to do anything for these educators, and hopefully those people that are can make the right choices so all students of any culture and race won't feel singled out or like their race is being stereotyped against," Bolman told Inforum. [UPI]
Someone at this cess-school needed to man up, sprout a pair - even if womyn are in charge - and tell this whining, hypersensitive twat to STFU. Someone who didn't have the stones for that went gutless and girlie, instead.
Whoever is responsible for this crap be it male, female, or 'other' has parlayed their empty sack into PIG's Girlieman of the Week.

Minnesota State Senator John Hoofman has his head shoved up his ass to an alarming degree. Horrified by the destruction perpetrated by three species of carp, State Senator Hoffman took legislative action.
Before I tell you want he did, I need to share some pertinent tidbits. Since the three invading species, the black carp (China), the Silver carp (Vietnam) and Grass carp (China) all stem from the Far East, they are known by the collective, geographically correct, name 'Asian carp'.
Since the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are all ready locked in battle with the carp, you might wonder what's left for John Hoofman to do. He doesn't sweat this small stuff, he's too busy changing the collective name ASIAN carp to INVASIVE carp, because calling it ASIAN might give some pinhead a boo-boo.
Wow, he got that done just in time. I hope nobody tells him about the PRAYING Mantis. If they do, I have it all figured out for him:

Her name is Melody Hensley and she's a real piece of work. A self-proclaimed outspoken feminist and atheist, she wrapped herself in victimhood. She claims that she got PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) due to Twitter, and the cyberbullies who lurk there.
In an interview with DailyDot.com, Ms Hensley says she became a target for 'atheist misogynists and men's rights activists' a few years back, following her open status as an atheist and feminist activist.
One man in particular has waged a two-year hate campaign against her by publishing her tweets using Storify, others have cut-and-pasted her tweets into YouTube videos, belittling her claims of PTSD.
She claims to be harassed by a cybermob of 'more than 400 people' which led to her diagnosis.
On her Twitter feed Ms Hensley outlines her history of PTSD in several posts, saying she was bedridden for the first six months following her diagnosis, and that she has been so distressed about the online hatred she fears leaving her house unaccompanied. [Daily Mail]
A cybermob? Why wasn't I invited? If I dwell on that deliberate insult I might get PTSD.
A Compelling Race Card Drama
Source: PIG News Wire [04/12/14]
Foreign born students attending Warwick University in Coventry (J.O.E) are outraged due to what appear to be racially-motivated by whitey. The reaction from foreign born students is predictable:
*A 24 year old student from India deemed whitey "very annoying and the students feel as though they're being bullied." "Whitey attacks me especially. Whitey focuses straight on me."
* Italian student Albertina Crocetti, 24, accuses whitey as follows: "[Whitey's] behavior is bezarre. Whitey doesn't seem to like foreigners...Whitey "is a true right winger that's for sure - they certainly seem to be racially motivated incidents."
Is Whitey a racist? I'd ask her, but like all SWANS, whitey doesn't speak English. That's right this dastardly 'racist' is a 4 foot tall SWAN. The 'racist' incidents occur whenever someone strays too close to the nest she's protecting.
A RACIST swan? I don't think so.
Racists of the Week

When some Korrectniks at South Puget Sound Community College perpetrated a diversity confab, the organizers definition of 'inclusiveness' didn't include whitey. The name of the group should have been enough of a hint: 'Staff, Faculty and Administrators of Color'. Leaving nothing to chance the invitations told whitey to piss off, in no uncertain terms:
School officials were asked to reply to the invitation to find out the confidential date and time of when the event would be held. According to [a local TV station], the invite made it clear white people were not invited.
"If you want to create space for white folks to meet and work on racism, white supremacy, and white privilege to better our campus community and yourselves, please feel free to do just that," the email read.
Diversity and Equity Center staffer Karama Blackhorn helped write the invitation and said she stands by her opinion that staff members of color would have a more honest discussion about race without white people there.
"When trying to explicitly talk about race it can be a really difficult conversation for a lot of people," she told the station.
"That space is not for white people. That space is for people of color," she said of the center.
School officials - prompted by the media coverage, no doubt - nuked the confab, then issued an apology.
"[T]he campus community immediately responded to the lack of inclusion," the apology read. "Within minutes, the Center apologized, the event was cancelled, and if rescheduled, will of course be open to anyone who wants to come. It was simply a mistake by someone new to our community."
Korrectnik racism thrives in academia.
When they negotiated a contract extension thru 2017 for the teachers union, the racism was bold as brass.
"Special consideration shall be given to women and/or minority defined as: Native American, Asian American, Latino, African American and those of the non-Christian faith," reads the text of the contract. [CI]
Like roaches, the racists scurried for cover when The Mackinac Center and the Daily Caller exposed this crap to the light. The relevant Educrats pinned an 'antiquated' language label on the racist clause, then yanked it.
As written, it seemed likely that the contract violated several laws. Michigan voters passed a constitutional amendment prohibiting the consideration of race in public contracts and university admissions. That law is currently being adjudicated by the U.S. Supreme Court — and experts expect that it will be upheld.
The contract's special treatment for non-Christians may be even more obviously problematic. The Federal Civil Rights Act — as well as Michigan's own civil rights law — prohibits employers from discriminating on the basis of religion.

I'm tired of the Progtards declaring war on words which give them a boo-boo. The latest word to set their hair on fire is 'bossy'. That's right, 'bossy'. If 'bossy' gives them crotch rot, that's their personal problem. They should know this, because we warned them in our PIG Doctrine:
Since a word is nothing more than an ethically-neutral sequence of sound waves, it only has as much power for good or evil as the listener bestows upon it. There are no intrinsically 'offensive' sound waves, there are only hypersensitive listeners who are predisposed to being offended by them.
According to the politically correct Word Nazis,'bossy' is out.
So be it.
Henceforth that bossy bitch will be deemed memorably magisterial.
Or...you're authorized to deem her definitively dictatorial.

Rabid Moonbat: Harvard University Senior Sandra Korn
Magic Moonbat Moment: In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism.
"If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals?" asked Korn in her column.
The column's subtitle was even more direct: "Let's give up on academic freedom in favor of justice."
Gender Bending Bullshit

What's wrong with this picture? As a freshman, he was dude enough to play on the baseball team at Azusa High School (Mexifornia). So what? So nothing, because there's nothing noteworthy about a biological male playing on a boy's sports team. That was then, but something has changed, because this year HE is going to play on the girls' softball team.
What happened? He still has the same set of dude nads, but now that he's a senior, he has his head up his ass, thanks to one of those gender bending, gender identity brain farts. Identity also includes transsexualism:
[Fox News] A California high school student who believes he is a girl trapped in a boy's body just made the girls' softball team.
Pat Cordova-Goff, 17, a strapping senior at Azusa High School, in Azusa, an hour east of Los Angeles, can play with and against girls because of a September change in state law went into effect last month. The law requires that, "a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil's records."
Goff, who is a cheerleader at the school, played freshman baseball when he considered himself a boy. He found out Friday that he made the cut.
He made the cut? Yup, but he had some help from his lawyer.
The team roster was to be originally posted on Wednesday, but unnamed sources at the school told the Valley Tribune it was held up because Cordova-Goff was not going to make the team, and he only did so after meetings involving an attorney and school district officials. School officials denied this was the case.
He used a shyster to coerce his way onto the girl's softball team? What a scumbag. I'm not willing to call this clown a 'girl', but this shyster shit makes one thing clear: he's not a man!

Determined to take the fun out of Valentine's Day, NO-NADs insist on calling it V-Day (Vagina Day). Instead of cheesy greeting cards, flowers and candy, the centerpiece of this NO-NAD blight is a womyn only whine a thon called the 'Vagina Monologues'.
Since men don't have one of those, it's a womyn only gig. In fact, in some NO-NAD infestations, it's a 'women of color' only gig. White chicks need not apply.
At UCLA, some fun-seeking dudes decided to strike back. College Insurrection describes the festivities this way:
You've heard of the The Vagina Monologues? Well … penises want some of that V-Day action, too.
Student activists at UCLA recently debuted the inaugural Dick Dialogues, a production that aimed to fill the gap left by The Vagina Monologues, which take place across the nation in February.
"The hard and fast rules about The Vagina Monologues is that you have to have a vagina in order to perform," junior Alec Moore told Daily Bruin Radio. "So we wanted to create a forum where all those who'd be excluded from The Vagina Monologues could stand up in front of an audience and put up their own opinions and feelings."
During their performances, male and transgender students stood on stage and talked about their privates' private struggles. The event took place Wednesday at the public Southern California-based university as an open-mic night that featured storytelling, song, dance, slam poetry and rap – expressions that touched on sexism, transgender struggles and masculinity pressures, the Bruin Radio reported.
The event was inspired by The Vagina Monologues, a 17-year-old play that consists of various vignettes performed by women on topics such as sexual encounters, molestation, rape, orgasm, menstruation, lesbianism and child birth.
UCLA's Dick Dialogues is not the first time this school year that The Vagina Monologues has faced criticism for being too narrow in focus. This year's Columbia University and Barnard College's joint production of the venerable play excluded white vaginas – only vaginas of color were allowed onstage.
"The Vagina Monologues has historically overlooked the empowerment of women of color, queer women, and trans* folk, among others—often replicating and perpetuating the same systems of power and privilege that prompted the playwright, Eve Ensler, to write The Vagina Monologues in the first place," producers had stated in announcing their decision. "The marginalization and erasure of these groups in such a generative and influential feminist play speaks to a failure to consider the effects of power structures outside gender within the feminist community."
Along those lines, producers of UCLA's performance said they wanted to give a platform to the rainbow of sexual and gender preferences that struggle with similar issues.
"The Dick Dialogues challenges traditional perspectives of gender roles, especially their impressions that the conventional definition of masculinity imposes on men," reported Laila Vinson of Bruin Radio. "Throughout the event it became clear that this was more than merely a dialogue about dicks, but rather a discussion about the implications of modern gender roles as a whole."
It sounds like the Dick Dialogues wins the coveted 'most inclusive' award.

Valeria Jones must be a nonstop bundle of joy, a fact her former Oregon-based employer - Bon Appetit Management Company is learning the hard way, now that Valeria is suing them for $518,000. What's Valeria's problem? Valria is a genderally confused twat, who does not want to be referred to with female terms.
That's right, Valeria is one of those gender identity freak-a-zoids, who flatly rejects 'he', 'she', 'heshe' and is mired in 'it'.
Valeria Jones alleges in a lawsuit that co-workers repeatedly called Jones "miss," "lady" and "little lady" despite explanations that Jones "was not a female or a male and that the term was unwelcome."
Workers also directly said Jones looked like a woman and made female celebrity comparisons, the suit states.
The lawsuit, filed this week in Multnomah County Circuit Court, says Jones preferred to be addressed by a general neutral pronoun. The suit doesn't identify the term.
The term "they" -- rather than "he" or "she" -- is sometimes used to refer to a gender-neutral individual in the LGBTQ communities. [Oregonian]
In a rational world, a black robe would tell Valeria "get over yourself, BITCH".
We the PIGs covered this shit in our PIG Doctrine: The exaggerated sensitivities of others are not my responsibility, nor do their hurt feelings empower them to abolish my right to free speech.
Victocrat Brainfart of the Week
February 15, 014
: The 2-acre parcel in the Melanin-Enriched section of Portland (Oregon) has been vacant for years. That seemed destined to change when the Portland Development Commission made a deal with Trader Joes to build a store there as the key attraction in a 10-shop outpost of capitalism.
The deal would give the construction project to a firm that had a Melanin-Enriched (black) owner plus good paying job for denizens of the hood. Happy days are here again? Nope.
The Portland African American Leadership Forum, along with the Mayor Charlie Hales, sent letters to Portland Development Commission citing that they were "contributing to the destructive impact of gentrification and displacement of the African American community." They also said that they would remain opposed to all development of the land that doesn't solely benefit African Americans. (Oregonian)
Trader Joes gave the Ethnocrats exactly what they wanted. They said, in essence, "Since that's the way you feel, so be it. We're not going to taint your ghetto with the $8 million we have earmarked for this project. Happy now?"
Okay, here's what they really said: "We run neighborhood stores, and our approach is simple," said the grocery chain. "If a neighborhood does not want a Trader Joe's, we understand, and we won't open the store in question."
Admit it, I had it nailed. Sort of...
Steaming Load: Microaggression Is Victocrat Crap [02/08/14]
[National Review] As a group of students begins studying for a calculus exam, a white student turns to an Asian peer and says, "Hey, would you mind helping me solve this problem? It's really difficult, but you can probably do it." The Asian student agrees to help, but for some reason feels uncomfortable with the way the question was asked.
Is the Asian student being oversensitive? Was the white student subtly and subconsciously displaying racial prejudice against Asians? Could both be true?
According to Dr. Derald Sue, a professor of psychology at Columbia University, the Asian student may have been the victim of a microaggression — an "everyday slight, putdown, indignity, or invalidation unintentionally directed toward a marginalized group."
Sue has been researching microaggression since 2007 and has written two books on the subject. According to him, the person delivering the microaggression often does not know he's doing it and might even think he is complimenting the other individual.
"When you try to bring the issue of microaggressions to the attention of people who are completely unaware that they have delivered a microaggression, they get defensive and deny it and tend to say that you're being paranoid or you're being oversensitive," Sue tells me. "Many microaggressions are so subtle that neither target nor perpetrator may entirely understand what is going on."
According to Sue, there are many types of microaggressions, based on race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or any other factor that can make a group "socially marginalized." These microaggressions can be expressed verbally (as with the white and Asian students), nonverbally (as with a woman clutching her purse when a black man walks by), and environmentally (as with an educational curriculum containing few books by female authors).
Originally coined in the 1970s by Chester Pierce, an African-American psychiatrist at Harvard, the term "microaggression" has made a comeback in recent years. "It has become one of the most researched areas in the professional literature of psychology," Sue says. "It's now going into popular literature as well."
Racial minorities in particular have taken to the concept of microaggression because, Sue says, the taxonomy of his research "provided a language for how people of color could describe the experiences that they've had with well-intentioned white people unaware that they were delivering insulting putdowns."
The term has become particularly popular on America's college campuses. In November at UCLA, a group of minority students claimed that their professor committed a microaggression when he corrected a student's grammar in a research paper by repeatedly changing the word "indigenous" from upper- to lower-case. At the University of Michigan, a member of the Black Student Union said that the group's Martin Luther King Day protest last month was in part an effort to "combat microaggressions" on campus.
Fordham has a web page devoted to training educators in what microaggressions are and how to avoid them, and Fordham students have taken photos with signs on which they have inscribed the microaggressions they believe have been inflicted on them.
Websites abound with self-reported examples of microaggressions.
"My MCAT instructor keeps referring to the writer of our passages with male pronouns when they do not list an author by name," one woman writes, citing this as a gender microaggression.
When a gay man's sibling said, "You won't have a normal family," the man argued that saying a gay family isn't normal is a sexual-orientation microaggression.
According to another respondent, saying, "You can't be a woman if you can't reproduce," is a gender microaggression.
Microaggression is anything whitey says, does, or thinks that makes a properly-hyphenated pinhead uncomfortable? That's a ridiculously low bar that encompasses anything, everything whitey says, does, writes, or thinks.
Race Card Retards

Located in Concord (Northern Mexifornia), Carondelet High School is a private school for Girls. Since it's in the Libertard heartland, the Educrats running the school should have known they were faced with a no-win situation.
The Korrectnik trap waiting to share them is Black History Month, a minefield of race card retard meltdowns waiting to happen. School officials stepped in it, when they perpetrated their lunchtime celebration. Their menu - fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon - 'outraged and offended' inmates and their parents. If that's racist food, what would they prefer?
I view this as a no-win situation. Any food choice would elicit a similar response. Racially 'neutral' food would be condemned as 'too white. They should have known better, but they didn't so they're holding diversity assemblies, apologizing to anyone who would listen.
It was an obvious trap and the stepped in it. Was there any way to avoid it? Yup. Make it a pot luck meal where melanin-enriched inmates would provide properly-ethnic foods. They'd find some way to make it 'racist', but it would be harder than normal, making it a 'teachable moment'.
Maybe the officials at this school now have the big picture on Black History Month. It's a game of 'gotcha' which you are required to play, despite the fact that the rules make it impossible for you to win. Welcome to the Victimhood.

According to an item I found at the 'Legal Insurrection' web site, the backstabbing cretins leading the pachyderm punk majority in the U.S. House are poised to stab every American citizen in the back with a comprehensive immigration reform debacle.
How do I know that's what they're doing? I have my ways. Such as? Such as, more word games.
Illegal alien was the first term jettisoned in the name of political correctness.
Illegal immigrant had a short lifespan, until it, too, was deemed racist and insensitive.
Next came undocumented immigrant, a much kinder, gentler term, we're assured.
The scribblers at Politico spilled the beans when they posted a 'draft of the House GOP Standards for Immigration Reform, which contains this egregiously correct title for the ensuing paragraph:
Individuals Living Outside the Rule of Law
Our national and economic security depend on requiring people who are living and working here illegally to come forward and get right with the law. There will be no special path to citizenship for individuals who broke our nation's immigration laws – that would be unfair to those immigrants who have played by the rules and harmful to promoting the rule of law. Rather, these persons could live legally and without fear in the U.S., but only if they were willing to admit their culpability, pass rigorous background checks, pay significant fines and back taxes, develop proficiency in English and American civics, and be able to support themselves and their families (without access to public benefits). Criminal aliens, gang members and sex offenders and those who do not meet the above requirements will not be eligible for this program. Finally, none of this can happen before specific enforcement triggers have been implemented to fulfill our promise to the American people that from here on, our immigration laws will indeed be enforced.

How twisted are NO-NADS? It's off the scale, now that the sick bitches have debase normal, no frills, hetro boinking as - TA DA - RAPE. Here's now Moonbattery served up a vile tidbit from a NO-NAD site named Radical Wind:
You can tell by how liberals react to that which is normal, healthy, and sane. Take normal heterosexual intercourse, the kind that serves the purpose of sex by resulting in procreation. Feminists call this PIV (penis in vagina). According to their rhetoric, it is always wrong, because it is always rape. Quoting the liberal site Radical Wind:
Just to recall a basic fact: Intercourse/PIV is always rape, plain and simple. …
First, well intercourse is NEVER sex for women. … [A]t the very least, men use women as useful objects and instruments for penetration, and women are dehumanised by this act. It is an act of violence. …
Through an all-pervasive and powerful male propaganda, they stuff our minds from infancy with the idea that PIV is normal, desirable and erotic, before we can even conceive of it as something horrifying…
Yet the enlightened come to realize that normal sex is awful, because it makes womyn live in the "heterocage."
But, you might ask, if intercourse is wrong, where are babies supposed to come from? The moonbat response: Exactly!
[I]ntercourse is inherently harmful to women and intentionally so, because it causes pregnancy in women. … Reproductive harms of PIV range from pregnancy to abortion, having to take invasive, or toxic contraception, giving birth, forced child bearing and rearing and all the complications that go with them which may lead up to severe physical and emotional damage, disability, destitution, illness, or death… PIV is therefore intentional harm / violence. Intentional sexual harm of a man against a woman through penile penetration = RAPE.
Only a fiend would want a woman to be "punished with a baby," as Obama famously put it.
Even liberals know that if no one has babies, one day there will be no one left to tax. It's just that they never had that talk about the birds and the bees.
[Intercourse is] not meant to be. The vagina's primary function isn't to be penetrated by a penis but to eject a baby for birth. They are two muscle tissues / sphincters pressed against each other to help the baby be pushed out. Penetration of the penis into the vagina is completely unnecessary for conception.
That's right libs. Go on having perverted sex with appliances and members of the same sex. Enough children will be conceived by magic to keep your friends at Planned Parenthood in the black. Just leave the horridly politically incorrect PIV to conservatives.
Parting shot: There's nothing new here, because more than a decade ago, Andrea Dworkin spouted this crap:

A dozen years ago, I wrote this tongue-in-cheek, fictional news item. It never landed in PIG, because I thought it was too detached from reality.
The Multicultural Heritage Federation has declared certain gender-based nouns and pronouns as divisive and proposes new, gender-neutral pronouns, carefully selected to be more 'inclusive' than the traditional, sexist, Euro-centric terms.
He/She becomes soun [social unit]
Him/Her becomes sount
His/Hers becomes soun's
man\woman becomes socon [social consciousness]
P.I.G.'s editorial staff is currently debating whether we should adopt this new standard. For now, P.I.G. shall continue the existing policy of deleting gender-based nouns and pronouns whenever possible. P.I.G offers our heartfelt apologies to our more socially sensitive readers, asking them to be patient with us, a little longer..
Twelve years later, it's uncomfortably close to this:
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The weekly meetings of Mouthing Off!, a group for students at Mills College in Oakland, Calif., who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, always start the same way. Members take turns going around the room saying their names and the personal pronouns they want others to use when referring to them - she, he or something else.
It's an exercise that might seem superfluous given that Mills, a small and leafy liberal arts school historically referred to as the Vassar of the West, only admits women as undergraduates. Yet increasingly, the "shes" and "hers" that dominate the introductions are keeping third-person company with "they," `'ze" and other neutral alternatives meant to convey a more generous notion of gender.
"Because I go to an all-women's college, a lot of people are like, `If you don't identify as a woman, how did you get in?'" said sophomore Skylar Crownover, 19, who is president of Mouthing Off! and prefers to be mentioned as a singular they, but also answers to he. "I just tell them the application asks you to mark your sex and I did. It didn't ask me for my gender."
On high school and college campuses and in certain political and social media circles, the growing visibility of a small, but semantically committed cadre of young people who, like Crownover, self-identify as "genderqueer" - neither male nor female but an androgynous hybrid or rejection of both - is challenging anew the limits of Western comprehension and the English language.
Though still in search of mainstream acceptance, students and staff members who describe themselves in terms such as agender, bigender, third gender or gender-fluid are requesting - and sometimes finding - linguistic recognition.
Inviting students to state their preferred gender pronouns, known as PGPs for short, and encouraging classmates to use unfamiliar ones such as "ze,'"sie," `'e," `'ou" and "ve" has become an accepted back-to-school practice for professors, dorm advisers, club sponsors, workshop leaders and health care providers at several schools.
My alleged humor is based on gross exaggeration. The Moonbats have strayed so far into their insanity, it's getting much harder to deploy suitable exaggeration.
