IT’S COME TO THIS: University Cancels ‘Vagina Monologues’ Because a White Lady Wrote It:

Cancelling performances of “The Vagina Monologues” has become a bit of a trend on college campuses these days. For example, just last year, all-women’s Mount Holyoke College canceled its own performance on the grounds that the production was not “inclusive” enough to people who identify as women but do not have actual vaginas.

Earlier: Berkeley students call for “an occupation of syllabi in the social sciences and humanities,” demand Marx and Foucault dropped from curriculum, along with other philosophers, not because they’re far leftists, but because they’re “white men. The syllabus did not include a single woman or person of color.”

As Ray Bradbury predicted in Fahrenheit 451, books will be burned as much to protect everyone’s feelings as much as to block the ideas within them.
