Ithaca College has gone Full Blown Orwell. Using an on-line Anonymous reporting system to encourage students to report "microagressions". Yet another example of Progressive Dissociative Disorder.*
The whole concept of microagressions is so flawed it deserves it's own curriculum. Basically it boils down to - finding a way to take anything ever spoken or written as an insult. Intent is to be assumed by the victim, and nothing the "aggressor" says regarding intent matters:
"Are you feeling okay?" means, "You're too feeble to deal with life just go commit suicide and save yourself the grief."
"That's a nice haircut" means "Your so ugly that the only thing about you that isn't repulsive is the hair covering your appearance."
Even better it's anonymous so you can ruin other peoples lives without consequence - what power! The student administration has every student spying on every other student and every student is terrified to speak least they be persecuted. All in the name of safety. Ah, the brilliance of the totalitarian mind.
Were does this lead? I predict that Ithaca College will be bankrupt with in a few years as their attendence numbers drop and they are forced to raise tuition even faster to keep the administration in the lifestyle to which they've become accustomed.
Typical "feel good" politics with no thought to the resulting consequences. The totalitarian progressive left never sees how the system will be turned against themselves, their presumed moral superiority makes them immune - they would never microagress, so obviously no one would ever report them. In a way, they're probably correct, as straight white males will be the first victims of the system, followed by any white females who are insufficiently radicalized in the feminist movement. This will be followed by transgenders and gay men, assuming the college exists long enough for that to happen.
*progressives commonly exhibit symptoms of Dissociative Disorder as defined by the Mayo Clinic
Someone with a dissociative disorder escapes reality in ways that are involuntary and unhealthy. The person with a dissociative disorder experiences a disconnection and lack of continuity between thoughts, memories, surroundings, actions and identity.
