Milo Yiannopolous Speaks at the University of Pittsburgh to Tell Students They Are Intolerant Babies Who Cry at Disagreement, and They... Start Crying About Disagreement Like Intolerant Babies

Apparently we've gone from the code that men shouldn't cry to "men should cry even harder than little babies."

More than 15 students expressed their concerns at the meeting, focusing on issues of diversity and inclusion at Pitt, particularly in terms of race and sexual identity.

Marcus Robinson, president of Pitt's Rainbow Alliance, said after leaving the lecture on Monday, he felt unsafe on campus for the first time.

"So many of us shared in our pain. I felt I was in danger, and I felt so many people in that room were in danger. This event erased the great things we've done," Robinson said. "For the first time, I'm disappointed to be at Pitt."

Robinson suggested that the University should have provided counselors in a neighboring room to help students who felt "invalidated" or "traumatized" by the event.

...


"This is more than hurt feelings, this is about real violence. We know that the violence against marginalized groups happens every day in this country. That so many people walked out of that [event] feeling in literal physical danger is not alright," Claire Matway, a social work and urban studies major, said.

The group that invited Milo even acceded to the rule on campus that such events bear a "Trigger Warning" on fliers. They had the trigger warning. But the easily triggered came anyway, precisely to be triggered.

Meanwhile, three black female students made up a story about being racially assaulted on a bus, and it turns out... they racially assaulted a white student, and made up the racial assault claim.

The New York Times curiously pre-denounces any conservatives who might point to this episode as emblematic of a problem.

Are we not men? A commenter brings up the word "devolution."

I never understood Devo's schtick about devolution. Seemed to be an impossible thing to me. We'd always evolve, socially and technologically and economically. We wouldn't devolve.

The idea of mankind just devolving into lower animals was... a hateful idea.

But it's exactly what's happening.
