When It Feels So Good to be Offended

Just in case you were thinking it’s only American colleges and universities that have been built up into fortresses for the defense of idiocy, here’s a howler from one of the most ancient and respected universities of them all–Cambridge, in England.

One of the Cambridge University colleges was all set to have a costume party, with a theme of Around the World in 80 Days, when whining petulant ninnies forced its cancellation–on the grounds that dressing up in costumes of other lands is “cultural appropriation” and therefor “racist” ( http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/03/11/cambridge-students-cancel-around-the-world-in-80-days-themed-party-due-to-cultural-appropriation/ ).

Sorry, kiddies, no costume party. If you get dressed up in a sari or something, you will traumatize some poor fragile nitwit, violating his or her safe space and committing microaggression by doing something he or she doesn’t like.

I defy you to propose any activity that won’t be called “racist” on any college campus anywhere in the Western world.

I mean, who even cares whether some college students have a costume party? What kind of life is this, obsessing over trivial things that a normal person wouldn’t even notice, just because it feels so good to be offended?

And there, I think, we’ve solved a mystery.

These people get off on being offended. Having discarded the true and living God, and stumbled into self-worship, they now demand to be shown fear and deference that they have never shown to God Himself.

If they had to go a day without being offended, their heads would probably explode.

  1. Sometimes, when the absurdity gets so overwhelming, I revert to my standard ‘Oh my nerves!’ (my children and their friends get the biggest kick out of it). This phrase applies here.

  2. Well, Linda, I admire your response. At least you have thought of something to say! I am so overwhelmed with this idiocy that I am totally speechless. Wow, …

    1. We come from a different time, Erlene, and for that I thank God every day.

  3. Good observation! Never thought about it but it does seem like these whiners are getting off on being offended. Self-worship. Yep! Their focus is all wrong because of rejecting the Lord.

  4. “Exploding Heads” might be a good name for a hard rock/heavy metal band. There’s a book coming out titled “Woke; A Guide to Social Justice” by a male English comedian using the pseudonym Titania McGrath that mocks PC standards to the nth degree. McGrath (via a phony account) tweets about how to be virtuous without even trying. “I would go so far to say that all knowledge is a patriarchal construct, because it has been acquired over centuries of male totalitarianism. Every time a man speaks, therefore, he is contributing to a culture of androcentricity. ‘

  5. Leftists can’t tell the difference between cultural appropriation (which is an actual thing and can be a problem) and cultural appreciation. One has to be racist in the first place, to be able to see cultural appreciation as cultural appropriation. Their hissy fits serve only to expose that they, themselves, hold other culture in contempt, and can only project their own feelings onto others, because they are not capable of appreciating other cultures.
