You may have heard that the Harvard soccer team has been forced to forfeit the rest of their season as a matter of disciplinary action. The alleged offense is that the entire team was involved in producing “vulgar and explicit documents” rating the female soccer team on their sexual appearance. So basically these guys were working on a start up to compete with Tinder. Of course after I read this I was immediately in a state of apoplectic rage and bewilderment that a group of young men would dare spend their time ogling women running around in booty shorts. When I heard they reportedly put some of this on paper I collapsed at my desk and nearly fell into a coma. Alas, I was able to regain composure.
Unfortunately for these guys (who may very well be a bunch of reprobates, that’s beside the point) this sort of story is cat nip to the neo-progressive statists running college campuses, so they’re automatically screwed. There are two things in on a college campus that give you license to say anything you want and simultaneously be offended by everything else anyone says or does within earshot of a human being – 1) have tenure, 2) have fallopian tubes. Meet one or both of those qualifications and you can spend your afternoon reading smut like Fifty Shades of Grey with Magic Mike on in the background, all while the men’s soccer team are undergoing re-education training from the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response, who I bet are just oodles of fun at parties.
So, to the guys on the soccer team, I don’t know what you did and frankly I don’t care. It sounds like you didn’t hurt anybody beyond their feelings, making your only real mistake the attendance of a school that has made that a near capital offense. May be the truth is you were all inspired after a rousing movie night of Mean Girls to produce your own burn book and said some nasty things about the girls’ soccer team. Maybe you didn’t. It’s really beside the point for me, a random blogger on the internet. What I would recommend, plead, downright beg of you, is that you not roll over quietly and turn into stooges for these militant imbeciles. Expose them for their hypocrisy and bias or this will only get worse, and worse, and worse.
It took me literally five minutes to find – on the very same website that is currently lambasting the men’s soccer team with shame and disgust – material that objectify women for their looks, casually discuss (GASP) sexually explicit activity, and a variety of other material that, gosh almighty, I just don’t recall getting branded with scarlet letters in the national court of public opinion. Funny how that works, eh?
This piece at Harvard’s own TheCrimson.com, from barely a month ago, is entitled Young Joe Biden Was A Hottie. Why isn’t the author of this currently scrubbing “HOW DARE YOU OBJECTIFY MEN” graffiti off of their windshield? I guess I forgot one of the qualifications for having limitless authority on speech and action without getting excommunicated from humanity – being a loyal Democrat. Joe Biden, in all of his stupidity, has proven just that. He can ogle women, grab other men’s wives, and ethnically stereotype convenience store attendents all day long without anyone giving a rip.
Here is a highly produced and extremely offensive piece AT HARVARD entitled Fifteen Hottest Freshmen which goes on to showcase who Harvard’s magazine believes is the most visually appealing and diverse group of incoming 2017 freshmen. Many of these students are still in high school and they’ve already had college students ogling them and determining which are attractive enough to ‘make the cut’.
Here’s one that starts out empathizing with the young Harvard whipper-snappers who have run out of Tinder swipes. The piece goes on to recommend a list of other hook-up app suggestions, providing the necessary tools and encouragement to spend your afternoons sexting young Jewish boys (their work, not mine) instead of studying for that $60,000/year degree. Yes, these apps exist for the sole purpose of swiping through pictures of people and evaluating them on their appearance, mostly so you can tease and day dream with each other over the possibility of an eventual hook-up, but what the men’s soccer team did is unforgivable and, err, totally in line with what we’re posting on our own school website.
The evidence is clear. Harvard University doesn’t give a damn about objectifying women. They, and their students, are blasted with this crap about “micro-aggressions”, and “safe spaces”, and statistically disproven garbage about “rape cultures” to the point that every time a straight white male walks into a room and sits down, someone immediately starts writing a death sentence for their ‘man spread’.
Honestly Harvard, this is why your students couldn’t get into Yale.
