Harvard Sorority Goes Gender-Neutral, and The Reason Why Is Infuriating

Published

This was bound to happen sooner or later.

Once the top university in the nation, possibly the world, Harvard has been reduced to a cesspool of confusing intersectional politics and cultural Marxism, and it’s honestly impressive that single-sex Greek life still existed on campus.

The sorority, once a part of the national Kappa Alpha Theta will rename Theta Zeta Xi after announcing they will be accepting new members regardless of gender (and gender identity, presumably.)

In a statement, club members tied the decision to go co-ed directly to the College’s social group penalties, writing they are acting “in good faith with Harvard’s social organization and nondiscrimination policies.” The College’s sanctions—which took effect with the Class of 2021—bar members of single-gender final clubs and Greek organizations from holding student group leadership positions, varsity athletic team captaincies, and from receiving College endorsement for prestigious fellowships.

“This decision reflects our commitment to supporting our members as they take full advantage of the academic and leadership opportunities available to them as Harvard students, which we believe is central to our mission,” the statement reads.

Theta members voted unanimously to go co-ed, according to the statement.

To be honest, I think we may begin to see conservatives and feminists find more common ground, as campus leftists and other gender theorists seek to destroy exclusively women’s spaces in the name of progress.

The development of sororities during a time when few women sought higher education was seen as huge advancement for women’s equality, but, like so many other aspects of our culture today, they seem to be stamped out to make room for men who feel like women.

The transgender movement, at the end of the day, sends women back to a time when they’re individual interests as members of society who are often marginalized and shuttered out of the national conversation, only now they’re called “bigots” if they object to gender neutrality in the name of women’s interests.

But this is exactly how the gender theorists have been able to effect such dramatic change in such a short amount of time–by bullying anyone who disagrees as Harvard has done to their gender-exclusive organizations.

This sorority is just bowing to the pressure of an insane idea that gender is neutral. It isn’t, and it won’t ever be, and it’s frightening to think what may happen before society learns the hard way we really, really don’t want to go down this path.

Trump Weighs in on Cleveland Baseball Name Change…and It’s Not Pretty

The former President was NOT happy!

Published

Donald Trump, like a great many conservatives around the nation, isn’t all that thrilled with the way in which our national culture is changing.  Of course, this isn’t terribly surprising given that this is the nature of conserving, to allow things to remain the same or to work to bring the nation back to the way it was. So, almost predictably, Trump had plenty to say about the recent change announced by the Cleveland Indians baseball team. In a statement, Trump wrote that he is a “FORMER” baseball fan and said “a small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage.” The name change came after years of protests from Native American groups and baseball fans. The former President had a far different opinion than many. Trump’s statement said he thought the name was an “honor.” However, the Lake Erie Native American Council released a statement supporting the team’s new name, WTOL reports. “We are pleased the Cleveland baseball team took a comprehensive approach to listen and learn and show it is possible to take steps toward change,” the statement read. The name change came just months after the Washington Redskins dropped their own mascot to temporarily become the “Washington Football Team”, just until a new moniker could be decided upon.

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

Published

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…
