Yale is Crazy, But Oberlin is Barking Mad

, , ,

Baldwin Cottage, Oberlin College.

Hot Air:

Oberlin College is the pricey liberal arts school which lost a massive defamation lawsuit filed by Gibson’s Bakery back in 2019. Oberlin has a fancy house called Baldwin Cottage which was built in 1886 and which is currently home to the Women and Trans Collective. The school’s website describes the collective as “a close-knit community that provides women and transgendered persons with a safe space for discussion, communal living, and personal development.” Basically it’s a special dorm that has living space for about 30 people.

The student paper, the Oberlin Review, reported last week that the school decided to upgrade the radiators in Baldwin Cottage but, to the dismay of some residents, they sent “cisgender men” to do the work. [emphasis added]

    In general, I am very averse to people entering my personal space. This anxiety was compounded by the fact that the crew would be strangers, and they were more than likely to be cisgender men.

    Baldwin Cottage is the home of the Women and Trans Collective. The College website describes the dorm as “a close-knit community that provides women and transgendered persons with a safe space for discussion, communal living, and personal development.” Cisgender men are not allowed to live on the second and third floors, and many residents choose not to invite cisgender men to that space.

    I was angry, scared, and confused. Why didn’t the College complete the installation over the summer, when the building was empty?

    A day later, the moment came. There was a knock on the door and a group of construction workers had to be let in to make the repairs. The student left for class and when he returned they were done. But they came back the next day to check on the work. The author writes, “I felt mildly violated and a little peeved.”

When the author asked around he found that some residents shared his concerns. One person was even asked to “hurry up in the shower” so workers could perform repairs in the bathroom. The author concludes that Oberlin “should have taken measures to keep students comfortable and safe” especially the ones in this special dorm.

Oberlin’s tuition, housing, meals, and fees amount to $78,147 per annum.

Want to spend $312,588.00 to educate your offspring to be phobic about the slightest possible contact with straight normal men?

absofukinlutely pathetic. if my kid was like that i’d disown it.


Repairs and/or remodeling are always a pain. Apparently the “Special Princesses” have no ability to adapt to life’s inconveniences. Maybe they should consider moving out.

Some days I wistfully long for a solar flare to knock our society back into the middle ages. People like this would soon realize how trivial and false their little identity bubbles really are. Good times make soft men, soft men bring hard times, hard times make hard men, hard men bring good times. And there is nothing new under the sun.

This is why mandatory military service is Good!.

0 exceptions, even disabled & medically cared individuals can contribute towards military service in little to great ways.

For now its better to open a college that teaches techincal skills like hvac, carpentry, auto-repair, agriculture/poultry/farm steading, plumbing & electrical wiring/maintenance to cater to the needs of all Ohioan’s who have to rely on Oberlin for employment.

Oberlin can employ & fire at anyone on their “Unleashed” whims. That is their power, strike surgically & all action to starve oberlin will only be effective when the employees contracted are given a reasonable option for an alternative employer.

1 man can never move a mountain, 1 town can build ships that can move mountains piece by piece all over the world.

Perhaps a month of so of doing without any heat in January would help the little dears appreciate the sight of some quiet businesslike men carrying bags full of wrenches and hammers.

These people would be considered (if at all) as little more than comical, or quaint, if they weren’t so focused on making trouble for others.

On the bright side, some of that $300 thousand plus went to the workmen.

As we all know, you can’t fix stupid. Oberlin, however, is showing that, if you try real hard, you can teach stupid.

I think this is just good marketing on Oberlin’s part. There is a niche market for Loons With Money, and they’re trying to corner it.


Shouldn’t some evil conservative at Oberlin file a discrimination complaint against Young Mr. Feebles for his public castigation of straight guys? Surely this is material for the diversity office to take action.
