Last Friday, it was reported in this space that a group of students at Seattle University occupied the dean’s office to call upon the school to “decentralize whiteness.” Their lengthy list of demands was punctuated all the necessary buzzwords for a twenty-first-century campus revolt, including “marginalized,” “people of color,” “queer,” “sexual orientation,” and, of course, “gender.”
With all that enlightenment, you might suppose that this future generation of leaders could answer the simple question “What is the difference between males and females?” To test that proposition, the Family Policy Institute of Washington took its cameras to the Seattle U. campus.
The results are captured in this video:
In their determination to be politically correct, none of these young people can explain the fundamental difference between men and women that this even younger student is able to articulate.
Maybe the student coalition is focusing on the wrong demand. Maybe what they should be insisting on is a course in the birds and the bees.
