Princeton University is now encouraging students to report “problematic experiences based on their identity

identity

Princeton University is now encouraging students to report “problematic experiences based on [their] identity,” encompassing behaviors ranging from the “unpleasant” to the “disturbing.”

Posters distributed across the Ivy League school’s campus by the Office of the Vice Provost for Institutional Equity and Diversity note that “not every experience can or should be addressed through a disciplinary process,” but reassure students that “there are always resources available to help you manage your experience.” They encourage students to “consider reporting your experience.”

“Even if you do not want to pursue disciplinary action, or your experience is not appropriate for disciplinary action,” the posters proclaim that reporting negative identity-related incidents “helps Princeton monitor behavior on campus and identify opportunities to improve it.”

Princeton University allows its students to record their gender identity—or identities—in official university records.

The choices include “Cisgender,” “Genderqueer/gender non-conform[ing],” “Trans/transgender,” “Man,” “Woman,” and “Other,” and students may select multiple options if they wish.

The flyer lists several reporting options, such as the opportunity to “talk to someone informally” at the Carl A. Fields Center for Diversity and Cultural Understanding, the Women*s Center, the LGBT Center, the International Center, the Office of Religious Life, or the Office of Disability Services.

“These offices are not confidential resources,” the poster cautions, though it states that students may “consult a confidential resource” such as the Ombuds Office, the chaplains in the Office of Religious Life, Counseling and Psychological Services, or the Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources, & Education (SHARE) Office.

There is also “coaching on conflict resolution or mediation” available from the Ombuds Office, “if desired.”

For the most serious offenses students are encouraged to “file a formal complaint”. “The appropriate office may then conduct interviews, gather evidence, and make a determination of responsibility.

Finally, students are reminded they may file complaints with a law enforcement agency or “external regulatory agency” such as the Office for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights.

I am not sure I could go to a University today. I am certain that I would end up in some sort of diversity or sensitivity training. At which point I would ask them where the safe space was located so I could go color in my “I’m so sick of white people” coloring book. Or maybe I would make a transgender man out of the supplied play dough.

• Princeton University now allows its students to record their gender identity—or identities—in official university records.
• The choices include “Cisgender,” “Genderqueer/gender non-conform[ing],” “Trans/transgender,” “Man,” “Woman,” and “Other,” and students may select multiple options if they wish.

Princeton University now allows its students to record their gender identity—or identities—in official university records.

In a recent update to TigerHub, the university’s student services interface, administrators have added an optional form entitled “Update Gender Identity.”

“You may select multiple gender identities.”   

Upon opening the form, students are presented several gender identities to choose from, including “Cisgender,” “Genderqueer/gender non-conform[ing],” “Trans/transgender,” “Man,” “Woman,” and “Other,” the last of which allows students to fill in any phrase as their gender identity.

Multiple options may be selected simultaneously. For example, one may select “Man,” “Woman,” and “Cisgender” together.

The form states that “[y]our gender identity is confidential and is not generally available,” but does not indicate how the information will be used.

The new form was apparently added unannounced; at the time of publication, there was no statement regarding it published on Princeton’s website, nor was there any notification emailed to students. The exact date when the update was made is not clear.

Neither the Office of the Registrar nor the media inquiries office responded to Campus Reform‘s request for comment.

As previously reported by Campus Reform, Princeton’s Office of Human Resources issued guidelines last fall for “gender-inclusive language in official HR communications, policies, job descriptions, and job postings.”

Following nation-wide backlash against the policy, Princeton redacted several portions of the guidelines. While it blamed the controversy on “misinterpretation and incorrect media reporting,” the school nevertheless “streamlined the guidelines to eliminate any misunderstanding of their purpose and scope.”

Social Media and video games reducing children to mentality of 3 year olds, as parents hire video game coaches in search of riches

video games

A new study says that social media and video games are reducing children to a mentality of 3 year olds. This as many parents are hiring video game coaches for their children in search or riches and fame.

Albert Einstein is attributed to the quote “I fear the day when the technology overlaps with our humanity, the world will only have a generation of idiots.” It is debatable if Einstein did in fact say this but it is no less true. Think about how technology has reduced this generation to a group of people relentlessly looking at their cell phones and computer screens.

Teenagers are experts at Fortnite and other video games. The have thousands of followers on social media. Put the same teenager in a fast food restaurant and they can’t make change on $1.90 if you give them $5.00.

Baroness Susan Greenfield, a senior research fellow at Oxford University and former director of the Royal Institution of Great Britain, said that the instant gratification offered by devices means children are losing their ability to think for themselves and to communicate.

“What I predict is that people are going to be like three-year-olds: emotional, risk-taking, poor social skills, weak self-identity and short attention spans,” she told The Telegraph.

 

Greenfield pointed to a study by Harvard and Princeton universities which showed that students opted to give themselves an electric shock rather than spend 10 minutes alone thinking.

She said that the need for constant stimulation from our environments affects our ability to think and the author of Mind Change previously warned that new technology may lead children to have lower self-esteem and be more likely to suffer from depression.

Greenfield advises parents to encourage children to do things with a beginning and end such as playing sports or reading books. Greenfield says reading gives children “a better attention span.”
