#METOO HYSTERIA: Texas Governor Greg Abbott Creates Campus Sex Joke Gestapo

Even Republicans are now enforcing social justice dogma through the law.

Published

on

Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently signed a bill into law that will effectively allow law enforcement to jail any university employee who does not report a joke to a Title IX official that they hear about sex on campus.

The legislation, which is an egregious abuse of freedom of speech, is based largely off of Obama-era federal standards of sexual harassment:

Unwelcome, sex based verbal or physical conduct that: in the education context, is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that the conduct interferes with a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from educational programs or activities at a postsecondary educational institution.

SB 212, now signed into law by Gov. Abbott, would allow the termination of any official on campus who “witnesses or receives information” that may count as sexual harassment. Abbott is essentially allowing the ‘Me Too’ gestapo to reign supreme in his state’s higher education system.

The conservative watchdog, The College Fix explains how damaging this new law will be to freedom of expression on campuses.

“Those staggering employment and criminal penalties practically ensure that Title IX offices will be flooded with sexual harassment reports, and that students will be subjected to wide-ranging administrative investigations for constitutionally protected speech,” Greg Piper of College Fix wrote.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), an organization that protects civil liberties on campuses nationwide, is sounding the alarms about the new law too.

“Without an objective requirement, students and faculty are held hostage to the personal feelings and opinions of their accusers, no matter how unusual or even unreasonable. Given the offense taken by people on both sides of arguments about sexuality and gender generally, the list of victims of “sexual harassment” under this broad definition is functionally endless,” Joe Cohn wrote for FIRE.

FIRE’s Tyler Coward, who works as the legislative counsel for the organization, believes that the law will ultimately be shot down by the courts. He wants people who are targeted by the new law in the mean time to contact the organization for assistance in fighting back.

Social justice dogma is pernicious enough to even be supported by top Republican officials, as the Overton Window continues to shift toward the feminist left.

YOUR NEW MASTER: Twitter’s Head of Conversational Safety, a “Young, Queer Asian-American Businesswoman,” is “Rethinking” the Concept of User Safety

Do you trust someone like her to make Twitter “a safer place”?

Published

on

The media company Protocol, a sister site of Politico, recently published an article about Twitter’s new “head of product for conversational safety,” Christine Su. It claims that Su, a “young, queer Asian-American businesswoman,” is revolutionizing what “user safety” on social media means.

Twitter hired Su around six months ago to be in charge of “what might be the most difficult task on Twitter,” despite having no apparent experience in politics, programming, and media relations. But Twitter seems to like her for her “creative” and “somewhat radical new ideas” about user safety.

“As a queer women of color who is an Asian American in tech in rural America, that experience is a very intersectional one. I’ve had plenty of experiences moving through spaces where I wanted more safety,” Su said.

Protocol writes that Su’s vision incorporates “transformative and procedural justice.” Transformative justice ostensibly refers to a non-retributive form of repairing harm done to someone and preventing it from happening again; procedural justice to enacting a set of rules that “make harm rarer in the first place.”

This all sounds nice and dandy—but beware. So-called transformative and procedural justice will not benefit you, but will crush you. Anything that’s perceived as “harmful” against “women and people from marginalized groups” can and will be used to censor you. Christine Su may reassuringly claim that “the point is not to make the entire world a safe space,” but she’s open about the fact that she will help give the Coalition of the Fringes more control over what people are allowed to do and say on Twitter.

Examples from the article:

  • Creating an audio hangout feature called “Spaces,” which will allow users to determine who is allowed to participate, as well as who can speak and when. (Note that it’s being tested on “women and marginalized groups of people” first.)
  • Potentially doubling down on functions that “encourage people to read content before reposting it.” (Which is exclusively done to censor or limit the reach of conservative and other right-wing content.)
  • Building tools that “create private pathways for apologies, forgiveness and deescalation.” (The finer details are still a work in progress according to Su.)
  • Defining what a “meaningful conversation” is. (Would people like Su think that anything right-wingers say or believe belongs in a “meaningful conversation”? Let’s just say I wouldn’t bet money on it…)

You know full well that a company like Facebook would shortly follow suit. After all, it’s not just Twitter that Su is “revolutionizing,” but the concept of social media itself. Figure out where all this is heading.
