The President Of Evergreen State College Speaks to Student Demands


No,'s the actual text.

That first thing would have probably been less humiliating.

"I’m George Bridges, I use he/him pronouns."

I couldn't read past that. And is there a better way to summarize what is wrong with PC than that clunky, Orwellian introduction?

Bridges can't even manage to say what he means. Of course he uses he/him pronouns, most likely everyday. What he means is: "I prefer that he/him pronouns be used to refer to me." Maybe I'm not being charitable. Maybe this is like when the POW's used to make deliberate little mistakes in their denunciations of American imperialism after getting captured by the DPRK...

And, yet again, most of the demands are for para-faculty jobs programs. How long until these kids realize they're getting used?

I did like the permission-free food foraging provision. Based on past instances of the ten-year-old-lawyer maneuvering, let me predict: student plants row of corn completely around the library. Hilarity ensues.
