stealth jihad in the form of an eyesore

avoid talking to these spoiled sheltered, privileged brats if they insist others use “gender neutral” pronouns when addressing them.

colleges and universities delaying adulthood in the name of social justice. who would employ these perpetual children?

OAKLAND, Calif. — The weekly meetings of Mouthing Off!, a group for students at Mills College in Oakland, Calif., who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, always start the same way. Members take turns going around the room saying their names and the personal pronouns they want others to use when referring to them — she, he or something else.

It’s an exercise that might seem superfluous given that Mills, a small and leafy liberal arts school historically referred to as the Vassar of the West, only admits women as undergraduates. Yet increasingly, the “shes” and “hers” that dominate the introductions are keeping third-person company with “they,” ‘’ze” and other neutral alternatives meant to convey a more generous notion of gender.

If you thought government sponsored segregation was a thing of the past, look no further than Tukwilla, Washington.

Over the past few weeks, the  gender-exclusive swimming hours at Tuckwilla’s public pool has ignited a heated debate about whether or not special accommodations should be made for certain groups of people.

Every Sunday afternoon the city pool closes its doors to men, and allows women, many of whom do not want swim in front of men for religious reasons, to swim in private for a 90-minute time slot.

Katy Perry was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s show Monday night and made some controversial statements.

It started it out pretty innocently.

“I am obsessed with Japanese people,” Perry said. “I love everything about them and they are so wonderful as human beings.”

But then she took it up a notch.

“I’m so obsessed I want to skin you and wear you like Versace,” the pop star said referring to a Japanese person she said she was obsessed with.

The pop singer was obviously joking when she said she wanted to skin Japanese people but just minutes earlier she was talking about how many of her fans at concerts are so young they have to be escorted by their parents which makes her joke all the more controversial.

Viewers of the American Music Awards got a real treat. A real racist treat.

During the awards show, pop star Katy Perry performed her hit single, “Unconditionally,” in yellowface. Donning a chest-baring kimono, black shellacked hair, and pouty red lipstick, Perry turned her performance into a caricature of Japanese people and icons — complete with parasol twirling, backlit shoji screens, and a bevvy of geisha backup dancers.
