Saying 'On the Other Hand' Got a Student Reported to the Campus Bias Police

Making too much of a swastika / pumpkin incident at Colby College.

At Colby College, a student informed the campus's Bias Incident Prevention and Response Team that someone had carved a swastika into a pumpkin.

According to the college's bias incident logs, the student was mistaken. The carving wasn't actually a swastika.

This was not the most absurd bias incident in Colby College's archives. Earlier this year, someone filed a report with the BIPR Team after overhearing an offensive figure of speech. The offending phrase: "on the other hand." The BIPR Team's files note that these words were flagged for targeting people on the basis of "ability." I must therefore presume that the person offended by the phrase "on the other hand," possessed only one hand, or thought that a one-handed person might feel triggered by such a proclamation of dual-handedness.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education shares my (growing) concerns that college Bias Response teams—which exist on more than a hundred campuses—are threats to free expression on campus. Heat Street recently noted two cases at the University of Northern Colorado where the bias reporting process made it possible for students to file formal complaints with professors who had broached controversial subjects in the classroom. These professors had to meet with campus administrators about their behavior.

As I wrote recently in an article about bias response teams for The Daily Beast, "A campus where students live in constant fear of becoming the subjects of formal complaints—where everyone is encouraged to collect information on each other and turn it over to the authorities—is not a healthy community."

  1. Sounds like a troll, but clearly a successful one if it made it into the lists of incidents

    1. I am reporting you to the bias team for disrespecting Under-the-bridge-living-Americans.

      1. psshh nobody cares about those goat eating jerks anyway

        1. That’s cabrito round these parts, pilgrim, and it’s mighty tasty done up al pastor.

          1. Pastor shows CLEAR Pro-Christian and anti-Muslim bias…

      2. And I am reporting you for country bias.

    2. If I was in college, I would be making a past time out of fucking with these Nazi’s.

      Dear BIPR, the other day in the cafeteria, the white rice was in a separate, but equally sized container than the brown rice. The same sort of segregation was going on at the milk machine. I don’t know what kind of what supremacist is stocking the buffet, but this matter needs to be resolved post-haste. In addition, I was being fat-shamed by the offering of diet soda and skim milk in the beverage area, as well as low-fat (!!!!) dressing at the salad bar. We clearly need to change these practices or establish a “safe space” within the cafeteria for those who are clearly vulnerable to being triggered by these labeling practices.

      Respectfully yours,

      LAH

      1. You mean chocolate milk and white milk were segregated? Shameful! There oughta be a law!

        1. I blame the cows that only make chocolate milk!

    3. Start making cash right now… Get more time with your family by doing jobs that only require for you to have a computer and an internet access and you can have that at your home. Start bringing up to $12000 a month. I’ve started this job and I’ve never been happier and now I am sharing it with you, so you can try it too.

  3. A campus where students live in constant fear of becoming the subjects of formal complaints?where everyone is encouraged to collect information on each other and turn it over to the authorities?is not a healthy community preparing students for living in future America.

    FTFY

    1. Brilliant!

    2. Stat Polizi…You go far enough left you end up very far right…

  4. We need to bring back Lenore’s Friday contests so we can do one that is “Come up with a phrase that would not get you reported to college bias reporters (and “fuck white men” isn’t allowed because it’s too easy)”

    1. I think she did do that one.

      1. Did they stop because they ran out of ideas?

  5. “A campus where students live in constant fear of becoming the subjects of formal complaints?where everyone is encouraged to collect information on each other and turn it over to the authorities?is not a healthy community.”

    There used to be popular terms to describe communities like this, but they’ve been lost to history.

    1. Such words are ungoodthinkful anyway.

    2. Maybe the folks in Havana have a word for that?

      1. National Socialist Democratic Arbeiter (Workers) Party? Worked like a charm in Italy and Germany.

  6. Lets look at the list for some more…

    THEY NO CAN DUNK, BUT GOOD FUNDAMENTALS. THAT MORE FUN TO WATCH.

    A person reported that a student in response to the ref making a call that a certain student did not like at the men’s basketball game, he screamed out in reply “What the hell is this? A women’s basketball game?” He continued to make multiple comments about women’s basketball and the WNBA.

    1. And this one, 11 days earlier. Probably the game guy. He should be shunned.

      A person reported that during the Colby v. Bowdoin men’s basketball game, a person screamed statements about women and the WNBA to degrade the referee.

      1. Why doesn’t he just call the ref a faggot like at every other sporting event?

        1. A person reported that they were watching a basketball game where Colby students were yelling “fag” at players on the opposing team.

          1. I guess I left myself wide open for that.

            1. That’s what they said about the ref.

              1. I’m confused. Is the ref a fag or is it the other team?

        2. I wonder, if such innocuous musings get you reported when will people just start saying actually awful things.

          “he said the ref was near!”

    2. This person should be commended for promoting inclusion.

      A person reported that two students were in conversation when they heard, person 1 say “What does ashy mean?” and person 2 “You need to hang around more black people!”

      1. This person should be commended for promoting inclusion.

        No, no, no. He was clearly implying that the first person needs to participate in more lynchings of blacks.

        Hang around more black people” is clearly a suggestion that he should lynch blacks. I’m reporting you the BIRT and then hiding in my safe space the rest of the day.

        1. Ah, the classic KKK dog whistle.

        2. …is clearly a suggestion that he should…

          Oh, person 2 is a “he” now? Even if zhe’s a racist, zhe deserves to not be inappropriately gendered. Reported.

    3. “A person reported that the Catholic Chaplain’s office on the ground floor of Lorimer Chapel was defaced and [pro-life] flyers were taken.”

      Heh. Fight fire with fire I guess.

    4. “Two students were on the patio when another student approached and, while giving them his middle finger, told the two students that “there are no lesbians allowed at my party”.”

      What kind of idiot doesn’t want lesbians at a party??

      1. No shit, get ’em drunk enough and they might start making out. Everyone gets a show and no one can claim rape since, as everyone knows, lesbian sex is the only form of sex that isn’t rape. That’s a win-win.

    5. “Two students, while attending a party reported that a student looked at them and said “hey, I don’t want to see any of that around here”. The students reported that they are a bi-racial couple.”

      Your opposition to PDA is only allowable if the offenders are not bi-racial, apparently.

    6. “A student was asked by another student if he spoke Spanish. The student reported that the other student was persistent in telling the student he wanted to speak Spanish with him even though the student repeatedly indicated he did not want to engage with him using his native language.”

      I like to think the “offender” here was a confused Spanish-speaking student from abroad who is having trouble with the English language and is desperate for someone they can have a clear conversation with.

      1. It’s hard to tell what’s going on in that word salad. Is the offender the one insisting on speaking Spanish to another student whose native language was Spanish but wanted to speak English instead, or is the offender the other person who was being spoken to in Spanish but either didn’t or couldn’t speak Spanish? Sadly, I can see either case setting off some sno-flake.

        1. I took 2 years of Spanish in high school, and 2 semesters in college, the equivalent of 4 years of high school coursework. I couldn’t converse in the language for pintos at the end of all that. Nowadays, my go to phrase when a Spanish-speaking customer calls is: “Lo siento, no. Hablo solamente un poquito de espa?ol . Perm?tame para transferir su llamada, por favor.”

          It saves me a lot of trouble. My grammar’s not bad, but my vocabulary is poor and my grasp of idioms sucks. ?Que lastima? – Kevin R

    7. “Dana third floor bulletin board was defaced with the message ‘I hate the papists, they worship a man in a pointy hat.” Similar anonymous posts were made on the Facebook Confessions page.”

      Silly papists thinking they are a protected class…

      1. I hate small curious monkeys, for they worship a man in a yellow hat.

  7. So I guess the phrase “Let me think about it” now is triggering because it targets dumb people?

    1. Writing down bias reports is itself ableist against the illiterate, and reporting them vocally is ableist against the deaf and mute.

  8. Future Facist of America

  9. It reminds me of The Simpsons Mayor Quimby’s frustrated question during the “Bear Patrol” episode: “Are these morons getting dumber or just louder?” and the aide replies “Dumber sir”.

  10. The rallying cry of the SJW.

    OFFEND ME!

    PLEASE!

    1. SJW masochist to SJW sadist: Don’t offend me, please.
      SJW sadist: I self-identify as you.

  11. A person reported that two students were in conversation when they heard, person 1 say “What does ashy mean?” and person 2 “You need to hang around more black people!”

    \

    Which is the actionable offensive phrase?

    1. “black people”?

      I thought we weren’t allowed to use that term when referring to African-Americans.

      1. “It’s the Blackness that scares everybody”: Why white people favor “African-Americans”

        The word “Black” can be disruptive, disarming and political. Here’s what it really means when I choose to use it

        The Shame of Rutgers says otherwise.

        1. Just make up your damn minds already.

        2. They’re not African-Americans. The term always struck me as empty.

          They’re black Americans – or better yet just plain damn AMERICANS – and I don’t give a shit what they say.

          /waves torch.

        3. I remember as a kid blacks wasn’t appropriate because they want to be called African Americans. Now the new generation thinks we stopped saying it because we are afraid of blackness? No jacktard, it’s cause your dad didn’t like it and called it racist.

          Sort of like how dark green and light green Marines is a racist term now. Evidently we are all just green and if you have a couple Browns you gotta come up with another descriptor.

      2. I thought African American was pass?. After all, it’s not call AALM, is it?

      3. What do you mean “we”?

        1. WE, short for ‘White Evangelicals’

        2. Nobody knows what to make of you.

          1. You’ve clicked my forum handle link, I see.

            1. Actually, never. Perhaps later in the safety of my home.

      4. I still remember the Negro College fund commercials back in the 70s/early 80s.
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARmw4D4pzIw

        can’t use that word anymore, can we?

      5. “African-Americans”?
        What do they become when they migrate to Australia? Great Britain? France? Brazil?
        If Euro-centrism is bad, how much worse is America-Centrism [or whatever the hell the proper shaming descriptive portmanteau is].

        1. Oh, there have already been a few hilarious incidents where reporters covering the Olympics or such said mindless stuff like “Smith is Britain’s first African-American competitor in this event”.

          1. Dunno how to search for it, but I’m pretty sure some news talking-head was in Africa and mentioned all the African Americans he had spoken with about the issue at hand.

  12. You know who else liked swastikas?

    1. Hindus?

    2. Indians? Both kinds.

    4. Winston’s mom, made up of penises around her face?

  13. From what I’ve seen, Trump’s full-on assault on Hillary was epic, and packed with stuff that should get a lot of people around here cheering (regardless of what you think of Trump).

    Hillary Clinton has perfected the politics of personal profit and theft. She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund ? doing favors for oppressive regimes, and many others, in exchange for cash. She gets rich making you poor.

    The Hillary Clinton foreign policy has cost America thousands of lives and trillions of dollars ? and unleashed ISIS across the world. No Secretary of State has been more wrong, more often, and in more places than Hillary Clinton. Her decisions spread death, destruction and terrorism everywhere she touched. Among the victims is our late Ambassador, Chris Stevens?.She started the war that put him in Libya, denied him the security he asked for, then left him there to die. To cover her tracks, Hillary lied about a video being the cause of his death.

    Then there are the 33,000 emails she deleted. While we may not know what is in those deleted emails, our enemies probably do. So they probably now have a blackmail file over someone who wants to be President of the United States. This fact alone disqualifies her from the Presidency. We can’t hand over our government to someone whose deepest, darkest secrets may be in the hands of our enemies.

    Here’s hoping for some coverage at Reason.

    1. Yeah, I heard some of it. Totally on point

    2. Even Michelle “Mom Hair” Goldberg was impressed.

      Trump’s Speech About Hillary Was Terrifyingly Effective

      1. She still thinks it’s full of lies though. Oh well… some day the two halves of her brain will come together and there will be a reckoning.

      2. Trump Disturbingly DESTROYS Hillary

      3. That factcheck.org link in the article was less than convincing. They claim that Schweizer couldn’t come up with direct evidence that the donations led to her decision. All that proves is her team had enough cleverness to avoid incriminating themselves.

        1. Course not, the proof was in a deleted email

    3. Damn, that man knows how to go on point and eviscerate someone. It helps when that someone has a million different targets that everyone else is to scared to touch, but that was a good speech.

    4. Powerline wrote This:

      The AP can’t wait any longer before telling the reader: don’t you believe it!

      Yet his remarks included erroneous statements and distortions about Clinton’s record, and he frequently referenced sources of information that have been widely questioned, including the book “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer.

      Wow! Nothing like a little up-front editorializing. Curiously, however, the AP fails to cite a single alleged instance of an “erroneous statement” by Trump. And Schweizer’s book is meticulously researched; it is the definitive work on Bill and Hillary Clinton’s corruption. Has it been “questioned”? Well, sure: by Hillary.

      I think the media campaign to defeat Donald Trump and elect Hillary Clinton will exceed anything we have ever seen.

      1. Yeah, I have Clinton Cash. It has a citation every paragraph.

        Yeah, if you think they were in the tank for Obama, you haven’t seen anything yet.

  15. I know I wouldn’t have the patience to deal with this crap, but it would be delightful to troll these clowns, to report incident after incident of the most petty nature until they expelled me. 99% would be false, but the fun would be making up such trivial petty nonsense that they could not prove them false.

    “I overheard two womyn talking about their manicures (ability and gender bragging).”

    But I really don’t think I have the patience to keep doing it until they expelled me.

  16. For more ridiculous oversensitivity

    2. ‘You Can’t Eat or Drink All Day? Not Even Water?’

    No eating or drinking. No, not even water.

    Please, spare us the reaction of extreme shock and disbelief.

    When fasting during Ramadan, Muslims don’t eat or drink from sunrise to sundown. Yes, this includes water.

    While this may come as a surprise to you, it can be othering for us to experience your reaction of shock and disbelief. It implicitly communicates that you perceive our practice as a deviation from some norm (probably Christian hegemony).

    5. ‘I’ve Fasted Before ? I Know What That’s Like!’

    Um, do you?

    Fasting is a part of many faith traditions, and it varies in its practice and purpose.

    Fasting during Ramadan is unique. Please do not equate it to other fasts.

    1. If you actually have to ask these questions, you should do so while eating a BLT.

      1. A couple of decades ago some church decided it was going to try and convert Jews by standing outside temples during Yom Kippur and eating.

    2. While this may come as a surprise to you, it can be othering for us to experience your reaction of shock and disbelief. It implicitly communicates that you perceive our practice as a deviation from some norm

      This is othering me, as it implicitly communicates that I’m a moron who does not understand that my reaction of disbelief is meant to convey that. Yeah, not drinking anything while the sun up is not normal.

      Fasting is a part of many faith traditions, and it varies in its practice and purpose.

      Fasting during Ramadan is unique. Please do not equate it to other fasts.

      Way to other other religions and fasts, dirtbag. smh

      1. Way to other other religions and fasts, dirtbag. smh

        This reminds me of one of my favorite moments when I was visiting Mesa Verde in CO. The ranger was going on about the wonderful culture of the local Native Americans and related a story about a wise elder woman who told her “you know, the problem with white people’s culture is that you people are exclusive, while we’re inclusive.”

        1. And how the fuck do you take offense that your custom is considered abnormal while also bragging that it is unique? Idiots.

          1. They mean the same thing, but it’s negative connotation vs positive connotation. Feelz all the way down.

      2. Way to other other religions and fasts, dirtbag. smh

        No shit. That highly triggering and microagressive. If i were a student at that shithole I’d report his ass for that just for the lulz.

        “Turnabout is fair play. How do you like it, dickbag!”

        1. Q. I understand that Catholics ages 18 to 59 should fast on Ash Wednesday and on Good Friday, but what exactly are the rules for these fasts?
          A. Fasting on these days means we can have only one full, meatless meal. Some food can be taken at the other regular meal times if necessary, but combined they should be less than a full meal. Liquids are allowed at any time, but no solid food should be consumed between meals. – United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

          So, if a Catholic is doing it right, a Muslim can eat much more in the dusk-to-dawn hours than he does.
          A culture where water is scarce – the desert – instituted a ‘no drinking until sundown” rule. Gee, you think that might have something to do with waiting until the caravan made it to the next oasis, to make the water last? Lent occurs in the month of the year (roughly) when the store of food from the last harvest is getting short. Coincidence?…Me, I’m a total religious skeptic. i always figured fish wasn’t considered “meat” for purposes of Catholic fasting, because so many of the apostles were fishermen,* so, jobs for the boys, right?- * Self-reporting microaggression: we’re supposed to say fisher folk acc to the PCrowd. – Kevin R

          1. Only one *meatless* meal? I’ll drink to that.

    3. a deviation from some norm (probably Christian hegemony)

      Um, do you?

      Please be my friend so I can listen to your snarky put-downs all day!

  17. Jaime Lannister hardest hit.

  18. “The long and the short of it” triggers me because…

    Anyone else ever notice how much college campuses resemble the Soviet Union and other communist countries? Citizens there were expected to snitch on each other too.

    04/14/15 On-campus/social media Race/ethnicity/ natural origin

    A series of anonymous racist comments were posted to YikYak in response to a civil, organized protest aimed at raising awareness about issues of race in America.

    Three separate complaints about comments on a social media service no one is required to read and is not in any way supported by the university. Someone people need to be given much more homework.

    1. SOME PEOPLE DON’T HAVE HOMES!

      1. SOME PEOPLE ARE ALLERGIC TO WORK!

        1. SOME PEOPLE NEVER LEARDED TO READ

          1. So now journalism school graduates are running the spell check programs? We are doomed.

    2. Homework is stress-inducing and people of color suffer disproportionally from its demands. I’m reporting you to my landlord.

    3. They want the uni to block the site from the school’s internet connections, WiFi, etc. Like the social media addicts won’t run up their own data plan if they really have to post. – Kevin R

  23. Who could have predicted this?

    1. They’ve tasted freedom.

    2. And what was the City of Austin’s rational and helpful response to this? They set up sting operations to try to bust the people participating in the plan.

      So, on the bright side, I assume that all of the real, actual crime in Austin has been dealt with since the cops have this much free time on their hands… /sarc

  27. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education shares my (growing) concerns that college Bias Response teams?which exist on more than a hundred campuses?are threats to free expression on campus.

    Counting just traditional 4-year institutions there are 3,039 campuses. This means, that BRTs exist at only 3.3% of campuses.

    1. *reports HM to BIRT*

      1. Math is patriarchy.

  28. bias incident logs

    This is a thing? Ye gawds.

    1. I’m assuming that refers to the logs of shit that members of the BIRT pinch off in the toilet bowl everyday.

  29. The carving wasn’t actually a swastika

    When all you’re looking for is swastikas, everything looks like a swastika.

    1. The Bias Log didn’t say what it was, just “not a swastika.” I smell a cover-up.

    2. That must make oral sex very awkward for these people.

      1. They have to fill out some forms for consent for that first anyway, and then wait for the ministry of oral sex to give them permission. I would think that would sort of ruin the mood, but I’m just a grouchy old curmudgeon anyway, not one of these enlightened snowflakes. I don’t know how any of them could stand to even be around the other ones, let alone want sex.

    1. Who?

  30. I don’t have much to say about this beyond the fact that Blake Lively simultaneously bores, annoys, and fascinates me.

    But I’m totally going to write about it anyway.

    1. Gorgeous actress, totally miscast as Carol Ferris in Green Lantern. Did some teen show for the CW before that. Has a new movie out, so, shilling.

      She could have at least died her hair black for the role. Same, same, Amy Adams Man of Steel. Lana is the redhead. – Kevin R

  31. “A campus where students live in constant fear of becoming the subjects of formal complaints?where everyone is encouraged to collect information on each other and turn it over to the authorities?is not a healthy community.”
