The erosion of women’s rights continues.
The amazingly stupid thing is that these people don't understand where this road leads. Even if this particular person weren't a creep, this is an open-door policy for creeps everywhere. It will be the women's prison debacle all over again, but much much much much worse.
I had my first brush with "Social Justice" decades ago where I witnessed the introduction of the Trojan Horse called "Theory" into the Humanities, and then sort of kept an eye on it as it marched from victory to victory. It was obvious even in the prior century that the skeleton key that allowed Social Justice to open every door was the Bigotry Accusation, which was expertly crafted and honed to make just about any opponent quiver with guilt and shame until they surrendered or were defeated.
And the reason why the Bigotry Accusation has become the ultimate superweapon is because it is always aimed straight at the guilty heart of the Christian European, who (as we can see) would rather shower with and make breakfast for a rapist than make him cry or feel less-than. Social Justice has more or less hacked into the psyches of the Christian European, and our societies seem frozen in Act 5 of Macbeth, yelling "Out, damned spot!" in the hope that if we just give our enemies what they want (including our suicide) they will stop afflicting our guilty consciences.
But there is no end point in sight and what Social Justice is and what it wants becomes clearer every day: an Egalitarian steamroller where all differences are inherently evil, and the distinctions bw man/woman adult/child student/teacher cretin/genius fact/fiction rapist/lover citizen/foreigner etc are razed and replaced with a dreary Animal Farm world where we're all members of the same herd, kept in line by a commissar with a cattle prod.
The one thing I didn't foresee was the global corporate state patenting the cattle prod, wielding it in every jurisdiction, passing one out to every member of their team and encouraging them to zap anyone who gets in their way, even Wyoming sorority girls.
The rest of this decade will only get uglier, as Social Justice Inc has every intention of locking in a 1000-yr reign. Let's see if any Americans wake up and fight back...
I continue to ask myself this question... do women, in general, deserve this damage to their gender identity and rights? When I suggest this I get jumped on by others that the woke rot permeating campuses and hence society in general is the work of radicals and not women in general. However, I don't see much counter by organized women. There is some, but not enough to convince me that the movement to normalize biological males within the women's sports, bathrooms and sororities isn't broadly supported by women in general. It almost seems like a mass psychosis societal mutilation... like the urge is to cut one's arms, but instead let's join a mass movement to mutilate our gender identity. Just think about this... supporting biological men being welcomed... even encouraged... to participate in what are exclusive female institutions. What sane female mind would not be able to see the negative sides of that? I cannot come up with any rational explanation other than females, in general, have gone mad.
Why is this even happening? I truly feel like we’re all in the upside down or some alternate reality. It is pure insanity.
I am usually a calm and gentle peacemaker, but this actually made me want to grab this supposed person's [Artemis Langford] phone and jump up an down on it.
Why is 'he' putting himself in this position, knowing he isn't really a woman?
...and since I am a 70 year old woman...I have a question.
How does a man even know what a woman feels like?
That's the statement always made...'well I feel like a woman'.
No you don't...you can't feel like a woman unless you are biologically born a woman.
Just like I don't really know what it feels like to be a man!!!
We hear a lot these days about how the new gender ideology hurts women -- and it undeniably does -- and not so much about how it hurts everyday trans folk. A few decades ago a guy who felt that he was "born in the wrong body" could take steps to dress like a woman and medically transition if desired. Yes, it was a hard life. Yes, some people would make fun and even be violent. But most kindhearted people were willing to go along with it and call the person "she" and all the rest. By contrast, that same transgendered person these days is plunged involuntarily into a maelstrom of political chaos. A quiet transgendered life is getting harder to come by.
Easily solved. They should all move out. Let the douchebag stay there by himself. And the national organization can GFTs. The University of Wyoming has bigger problems. Enrollment is way down (a national trend for all colleges), and they rely heavily on out of state students to pay that bit extra tuition) most are from Colorado - Fort Collins is not far away. https://trib.com/news/state-regional/education/uw-enrollment-declines-strategic-plan/article_ed38992c-1d2a-11ee-8658-af20825bce9d.html. Laramie has brutal (and long) winters. It's not for most kids who want to wear shorts all year. I took one of my kids there on his junior-senior HS "college tour" (he is 30 now), and he was not interested considering we had to wear jackets in April.
I was born in Laramie, Wyoming and as an authentic Wyoming woman; I would have never tolerated this behavior! While we never associated ourselves with the flakes in the sororities, the real women of Wyoming would have gone across campus and wrangled that punk and taken him up to Lake Marie on the Snowy Range road to tie him to a tree for a few days until he fled to Los Angeles to hide and never return. We lived on Hill Hall (the most liberal of dorms with the graduate students).
Sadly, this is a personal tragedy waiting to happen.
Wyoming, like most, if not all states has a criminal statue defining punishment for when a man exposes his genitalia to a woman. When Mr. Langford exposes himself, have the pervert arrested & jailed. He & the school can pretend that he is a woman, but legally, if he exposes himself to any of these women, he is a man. And subject to fines & imprisonment.
Good lord, it's hard to absorb intellectually, conceptually the breadth and depth of this latest manifestation of the gender insanity virus infecting the culture....a hodgepodge of Kafka, Orwell, de Sade, Hunter Thompson, John Kennedy Toole etc...
You can’t make this stuff up.
In the right hands, this could be comedy gold on film. Of course, the woke mob would never let that happen these days.
But one day, this insanity will end, and truth will emerge victorous over the rabid ravings of these pea-brained imbaciles.
Until then, the inmates are running the asylum, and taking us all for a little ride on the bat-shit cazy train. All aboard.
Team Reality indeed
Imagine how absurd this situation would have seemed even ten years ago. It's crazy how fast society has shifted to where this is supposed to be 'acceptable'. I'd find it humorous if it wasn't so sad and damaging to the young women involved.
