Actual quotes from the OSU Daily Barometer:
Student creates cartoon for social injustice awareness
These injustices were listed to the class as racism, sexism, heterosexism, looksism, ageism and ableism.
"We were actually discussing what kind of areas we could educate the student body and faculty on campus," Loanzon said. "We had a broad topic of educating 'isms' to choose from."
Everyone else's project focused on a certain 'ism,' but we wanted to challenge ourselves with all the 'isms.'"
Each cartoon demonstrates a couple of "isms" that people use in a negative manner. The hero of the comic strip, Captain Ism, shows up with a witty anecdote about the ignorance of "isms" and their lack of conscientiousness towards diversity of people.
You would think that Captain Ism would be a parody that the College Republicans would use to make fun of the PC crowd but no, they are serious.
I bet Captain Ism is a real girly man...
An open letter to my white LGBT siblings
This letter will be angry. I won't apologize for any vitriol or confrontation here. I don't believe that we can have honest public discussions without being confrontational.
My anger comes from hearing, with dismay, about a party last weekend themed "Cowboys and Indians."
I don't know a lot about this party, other than it was hosted by a visibly white student at OSU who identifies as gay.
I was already laughing at this point.
But to wait for a person of color to express outrage at these actions is to deny my responsibility as a white person to combat racism. It is to put the burden (again and again!) on people of color to educate white people.
And I believe that dressing up as "Indians" at a party harms a group of people's right to self-determination.
Poor Michael, (writer of this letter) you are such a sad angry boy. But look how "brave" it is of you to act offended and stand up to the white man at OSU. I'm sure that it's a real tough environment to do that in.
The whole letter is good for a laugh if you aren't on a college campus. If you are on campus then you probably are very worried about Indianisms.
