Next, It’ll Be Compulsory…

They are the university workshops designed to inform new students about sexual consent in an effort to tackle the rising number of assaults on campus.
But in a sign of a growing backlash against such events, not a single fresher attended an hour-long session at a top Cambridge college.

Heh! The feminists be fewmin’…

The angry women’s officer (Ed: Is that describing her state, or is she the officer for angry women?) at Clare College later posted pictures of the empty auditorium on social media and lambasting freshers for snubbing the event. She described the move as a ‘huge step backwards’.

Oh, I don’t know. I find it rather refreshing.

In a post to accompany the picture of the empty venue, she complained: ‘This is the number of Clare College freshers who thought it worth their time to show up to the consent workshops this morning, who thought that an hour out of their morning in Freshers’ Week was too much to ask.’

Awww, dry those tears, honey.

Speaking to student newspaper Varsity, Cambridge University Students’ Union women’s officer Audrey Sebatindira also expressed her disappointment.
She said: ‘In the 2014 Cambridge Speaks Out survey, 77 per cent of respondents had experienced sexual harassment while at Cambridge.
‘Given how pervasive the problem is, there’s no doubt that the consent workshops are necessary and more people should appreciate that.’

Put on something worth appreciating then. Why should anyone appreciate a lecture by people with no sense of humour, or any visible sense of proportion?

    Dear Lord, may you grant me strength.

    In lala land – student world where the brotherhood…. has taken over the NUS, the University campus and student life has become an irrelevant sojourn into a dark dystopian dreamscape.

    I posit. I beseech, can the NUS their idiot ‘safe space’ advocates ever be part of the real world, realpolitik and imbuing useful social skills, or, it that too much of an ask?

    I think these workshops, for their evah so right on advertisers and promulgators, those very twee PC girlies, would it not be a good idea to take their ideas and workshops out into wider society?

    Because I am so certain that, a few ‘students’, inhabitants of Rotherham and a myriad of other UK northern and midland, southern townscapes those of a certain subcontinental heritage living in close knit enclaves, in minority circles – would greatly benefit from lessons in civilized decorum to seeking consent on aught, let alone sexual gratification.
    Furthermore and being, yes, involuntarily indoctrinated, taught behaviours demanded by those majority citizens – who are, to almost limitless extent and considerable forbearance and indeed who pay via their taxes which provide the not inconsiderable benefits, afforded the accommodation, built the institutions, built the nation that, these new arrivals seek shelter herein.

    Perished already is, that thought and is Theresa listening?

    Well I would have considered anyone needing such a ‘workshop’ to be far too immature to attend university.

    But as an elderly (66) white heterosexual male, my views are totally irrelevant these days.
