As you are likely well aware, we live in the day and age of the “snowflake,” those delicate individuals who have their nose to the ground looking to sniff out some “wrong” to protest about so they can self-righteously annoy the pants off of pretty much everyone with their virtue signaling and fake outrage.
The latest example of this nonsense comes to us from the University of Wyoming, where their new slogan “The World Needs More Cowboys” has come under fire by the kind of individuals mentioned above who say it’s “sexist” and “non-inclusive.”
The marketing campaign, set to launch in September, was designed to increase enrollment and attract new out-of-state students, but according to The Laramie Boomerang, the UW Committee on Women and People of Color wrote a letter to university officials demanding that they “shelve” the slogan in favor of a new one that “represents the diversity of the people and cultures” at UW.
“I am not the only person for whom the word ‘cowboy’ invokes a white, macho, male, able-bodied, heterosexual, U.S.-born person,” associate professor of kinesiology and health Christine Porter told the Boomerang.
“The history of cowboys, of course, is much more diverse than that racially, and presumably also for sexual orientation,” she conceded. “But the image—what the word ‘cowboy’ means off the top of almost everybody’s head in the U.S.—is the white, heterosexual male.”
The university, however, is undaunted by the criticism, emphasizing that the term is intended to evoke “the spirit of the cowboy that we all kind of share in.”
It’s surprising to see the university continue to boldly stand against the criticisms its receiving. Perhaps there’s hope for this defunct culture after all?
The kind of person described by Christine Porter in the quoted bit above is more or less the average American which makes up the largest portion of the population. Yet, for some reason, leftists think the majority are supposed to cater to the minority, elevating them up to some sort of protected class.
That’s not quite how things work.
Wouldn’t it be nice if people just got over themselves and stopped majoring in the minors?
