TRAGICALLY, IT NOW SEEMS THE LUNATICS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE ASYLUM

(The P.C. Brigade invades our universities).

By Marcus Honesta. 

It’s becoming all too dreary to continually have to keep saying; “things were a lot different when I was a boy”. However, tragically, wherever I turn evidence is mounting that things seem to be spiraling completely and totally out of control. The lamentable truth is that Australia, the nation where I grew up, is heading for moral and cultural oblivion.

Take for example the universities. Unlike the school system where learning was highly regulated, creativity almost never encouraged, and freedom of expression got you either ten laps of Queen’s Park (under the watchful supervision of the ever suffering Christian Brothers), or a couple of hours on your knees in the chapel to contemplate the frivolous nature of your thoughts, and to pray for your immortal soul.

The transition from school to university was almost a coming-of-age. A great opportunity to throw off the conventional shackles of rote learning, rusted on Dickensian schoolmasters, and bells that dictated school policy like a straitjacket does to an inmate; to move into a realm of exploration, freedom of expression, and a whole new social intercourse. This proposition for me caused a giddiness that sent tingles down my spine.

As I went to an all boys’ school, the potential to interact with the fairer sex not just at school dances or debating functions was an opportunity that filled me full of excitement, fear and trepidation. What would it be like to have females / girls in the same room all the time?

The University I remember challenged you to break the conventions and thoughts you held as tightly as Linus clutched his blanket. It encouraged you to look at things in a different way, consider other options, and indeed demanded that you started to think for yourself rather than just follow the herd. It was a sanctuary between the conformity of the school system and the gravitas of adult life to come.

Imagine my shock to learn this week of the parlous situation that the once bastions of free speech, creative development and spirited inquiry have apparently spiraled into. Institutions that now treat students like preschool toddlers, teaching them to avoid embarrassing words in sex education, pat dogs to understand racism and keep quiet in classes if they are shy. This claptrap is peddled under the seemingly innocuous guise of ‘diversity’.

From the Sydney University’s website they describe diversity as:

Diversity has become one of the most important issues in contemporary society. Increasingly communities and workplaces encourage us to support diversity. This unit introduces students to a range of diversity issues informed by race, ethnicity, gender, class, sexuality and dis/ability and the importance of cultivating understanding and respect for difference. It will appeal to students interested in social, economic and cultural marginalisation”. But more on these matters later.

As part of this diversity indoctrination they endeavour to brainwash the undergraduates in left wing cultural Marxism at every turn, and sex is always a good place to start.

Amazingly if you search Sydney University’s website courses on consenting sex you’ll find there are 1724 individual listings. In these courses students learn about the importance of clear communication on consenting sex (some of them are compulsory courses, in this I mean you cannot get your marks for the year unless you have answered a multiple choice test on consent and sex; something like the RTA publishes to get your drivers license). During some of these classes students  have been advised to use words such as “joystick” and “vajayjay” in place of anatomically correct terms such as penis and vagina so as not to offend others.

The “Consent Matters” course features slides of different pick-up scenarios and voiceovers telling students the use of “normal” language makes it easier to discuss sex and consent.

Yet Sydney University consenting sex web site describes in part the process in the following way:

Although sexual health might not be something you’re familiar with discussing, it’s important to know how to stay sexually healthy and safe whether you’re in a relationship or not”.

Above all, understanding consent and acceptable behaviour is essential before you engage in any sexual encounter”.

“What is consent”?

Consent means freely agreeing to do something, or providing permission for something to happen. It has to be by choice, where someone has the freedom and ability to do so”.

“Whenever you participate in any sexual activity, everyone involved needs to give their full consent”.

“This means that everyone is entirely comfortable with the situation and freely able to agree, give permission or say ‘yes’ to participating in a sexual activity (this includes kissing and touching)”.

“Sexual activity without consent is sexual assault and is always a crime”.

“Consent needs to be able to be communicated openly and clearly, every step of the way and should never be assumed. It needs to be given for each and every sexual activity, every time, with every person. It should never be assumed based on past sexual activity and can be taken away at any time. Everyone has the right to change their mind, and if this happens, you no longer have consent and should stop”.

Consent is never ambiguous. If someone is not able to offer an enthusiastic ‘yes’ to questions about sexual activity you do not have consent.

Consent is verbal and physical. Body language may indicate that a person is not certain about the sexual activity. If someone indicates in a non-verbal way that they are unsure, for example they pull away, cover their body or eyes, push you away, you do not have consent and you should stop and talk to them. If you are unsure, then you do not have consent”.

“Clear communication is important. You need to listen to what the other person is saying and how they are behaving. If you aren’t sure or are getting mixed messages, you should stop and ask for clarification”.

To this end a picture show has been created to assist the befuddled undergraduate on what just he / she / or non-binary, might expect during one of the brave new encounters.

I have renamed them things, it is a lot easier to talk about them when they have normal, less intimidating names,” the voice-over says.

Thank God….. it’s all clear now!  Job well done!

What is truly terrifying is some idiot academic believes that they are doing the right thing by our most impressionable of young minds. It would of course appear that simple common sense and decency has no role to play in this new Orwellian pantomime that is being rolled out across our modern university campuses on a daily basis.

Then of course, just when you thought things couldn’t get any more absurd, enter Professor Park. She takes her dog to lectures and tutorials. When the class takes a break, students pat the dog, which sleeps under a large desk at the front of the room. The undergraduate course is compulsory for students who want to minor in “diversity”.

The class is told that diversity is not just about “hating men and white people” The puppy in the pouch represents “white privilege”.

University of Sydney course Introduction to Diversity Lecturer Prof Jane Park with her dog Jae as a student approaches to pat it.

 

She says the pampered pooch identifies diversity as “one of the most important issues in contemporary society” and examines race, ethnicity, gender, class sexuality and “dis/ability”.

“It is not just about let’s hate all men and white people. That can be fun for like five seconds and then it gets boring. Also my dog is white. It is about white dog privilege. The idea of divide and conquer which brought us here — colonisation, capitalism, patriarchy … our identity and our value is defined by our commodification as being valuable in a capitalist society that has become something else, that has to become definable.” I suppose you can follow this mumbo jumbo and make sense out of it, you deserve to graduate from her class.

Now there you go, I thought it was just a DOG. This would be funny if not for the extraordinary damage that it is doing to the very minds and institutions that it is supposed to nourish cherish and develop.

In another Sydney University class, called Screen Cultures and Gender: Film to Apps, Professor Catherine Driscoll told students they don’t have to utter a word during weekly tutorial discussions if they do not feel “confident” or are “shy”.

Instead, they can submit their thoughts to the course’s online discussion board after class.

“You might just not be someone who feels very confident, especially in the beginning of the course with volunteering your ideas, though afterwards you might think they were as good as everyone else’s, — even though discussion counts for 10 per cent of their grades” she said.

But the university promises prospective employers that all its graduate will be able to: “Confidently and coherently communicate, orally and in writing, to a professional standard in major fields of study.” That is of course unless you are doing Professor Catherine Driscoll’s course.

Safe Spaces abound at Sydney University including The Wom*n’s Room.

The University of Sydney is plastered with bright red posters urging students to complete their mandatory sex course if they want to graduate.

At the other end of the spectrum, there is Dr. Fiona Martin. Whilst teaching Journalism students, in an Internet Transformation Course that looks at the history of the ­internet, how it has changed the media landscape and ­impacted on journalists’ work. She attacked the late great cartoonist Bill Leak of The Australian. ­Describing his work as “vile”, before saying “may he rest not in peace”.

She said the Internet had opened the way for an explosion of diversity and activism, going on to show Leak’s cartoon about an indigenous ­father who would rather drink a beer and doesn’t know his son’s name, published in 2016 in the wake of publicity about juvenile crime in the Northern Territory. “This vile cartoon here by Bill Leak. That to me kind of ­encapsulates the possibilities of counter speech on the internet,” Dr Martin said.

The truly sad part is Dr Fiona Martin is clearly too stupid to see the point of Bill Leaks breathtakingly insightful cartoon. Dr Martin the real tragedy is that the father hasn’t taken responsibilities for his family or his own addictions. Leaks comments directly relate to the breakdown of the cultural structure of the community he is satirising.

One might have hoped a doctor teaching journalism might have twigged to this point. But alas you can’t put brains in statutes. God help all her students.

A University of Sydney spokesman said the university was committed to academic freedom and free speech. “As a university, we encourage freedom of expression and robust debate of a wide range of issues, conducted with mutual respect.”

Rival Australian Catholic University lecturer and education commentator Kevin Donnelly said there was now no room for alternate opinions. “I argue universities are no longer places of open rigorous debate where people can engage in a dialogue, a conversation where they’re confident to put a point of view and argue in terms of the evidence,” he said.

“It is part of the PC movement, where we have safe spaces, victimhood, and students are no longer able to have robust debate because everyone is part of some victim group.”

The time has come for our political leaders to stand up and be counted. To encourage discussion, but put and end to the spiraling decline of our established Judeo — Christian heritage.

Although Australia is a secular society, where there is a division between church and state, to deny the significance of Christianity is to deny the nation’s heritage and culture and to ignore what underpins our political and legal systems.

It’s time for leadership to step up and say enough is enough.

  1. Get over yourself mate. You came to uni from your sheltered high school environment. Try learning from others who disagree with you instead of expecting them to hold the same view as yours. Bill Leak was a shill for Murdoch anyway.
