Nice attempt to cover, but no…
LA CROSSE — A UW-La Crosse dorm director who offended some students and parents with an email tutoring men how to help women overcome an “orgasm deficit” has apologized and was reprimanded.
Drake Hall Director Jude Legiste sent the graphic email, which includes pejorative terms for men’s and women’s genitalia, to the nearly 300 students who live in Drake at 11:46 p.m. Wednesday with the subject line, “You Gone Learn Today!!” The contents of the email was not written by him but contained a short paper on the topic.
The 26-year-old Legiste has since learned that university officials have put a reprimand in his file, and he himself emailed an apology Sunday night.
“I didn’t think it through,” Legiste said Monday afternoon. “For me, a large part of it was to start a conversation about gender equity.”
Fired. Immediately. That’s how it should have been handled.
If, on the other hand, he’d sent something about how to use contraception correctly and responsibly? Reprimand.
What? There are limits to liberal hedonism?
What happened to the 1st commandment of liberalism: Thou shalt foster diversity in all matters.
Are you comfortable firing him because he is not a protected minority?
Would you say the same thing if this material was sent by a female?
What if it was a gay, black female, sending this? That would be the trifecta of discrimination on your part, calling for firing.
What if it turns out this Jude is really a transgender biasing toward female?
There are a lot of things to consider first in the liberal lexicon before you can just say “You’re fired!”.
“Are you comfortable firing him because he is not a protected minority?”
Legiste is black.
I think what this demonstrates is that your understanding of people like myself is deeply flawed.
How do you know he is “black”?
Have you talked with him?
Listening to David Clarke, I’m told by liberals all the time he is not “black”.
Of course, then there are white people who speak “black”:
I thought determining “black” these days was by listening to the person.
Let’s assume for a minute that Jude is “black” in action…you want to fire a male African American for this?
What happened to diversity?
Would you fire the cysgender, biasing toward female, for sending this?
I thought liberalism required a deeper understanding, sensitivity classes, counseling, investigations under due process, and appeals, before firing?
Would that because you want him fired for his race?
Or is this a case where “gender issues” trump “race issues? If so, why?
I find the liberal thought process on this fascinating.
Notice that the righty was the first play the race card on this thread.
But it’s liberals, not conservatives, who are obsessed by race, or so the legend goes.
“I find the liberal thought process on this fascinating.”
Perhaps you would–if you were even remotely familiar with it. Your wacky caricature notwithstanding, that is. If you want to know what a liberal thinks, just ask me. Don’t supply me with a handful of kooky nonsense and ask me to explain it.
I’m also curious why this became an issue about race for you, Kevin? Clearly you didn’t even know the man was black. Do you just have a bug up your butt about black people today or what’s the deal?
Or maybe your entire post can be summed up thusly: “Rather than talk about whatever this link is about–sexism or something?–I want to talk about how angry I am about liberalism with regard to race.”
Lately, liberals have been declaring certain black people, like David Clarke, and Ben Carson as not “black” and the Democrat Party Chair speaks “black”, when she is not.
So the conclusion that Jude is “black” is rather hasty in this current liberal environment on this.
How can we be certain?
Lately, conservative crackpots have been SAYING that liberals have been declaring that certain black people, etc.
Kevin, I am a liberal. I don’t claim to speak for anyone but myself, but I have liberal friends and I read some liberal media outlets. I think I more of a finger on the pulse of American liberalism than you do. And of the things you accuse? Never heard of ’em. Not saying some nut somewhere hasn’t said something like it, but as a general thing? It isn’t one.
This wouldn’t be the first time that your perception of the world around you is quite distorted from what’s actually true.
I’d really like that to be the last thing I have to write on the issue. What about the original story? You know, the guy who sent the inappropriate email? I don’t think it was handled harshly enough? What about that?
Hove you got the latest liberal academia memo?
Ben Carson is not black:
Is this black women wrong?
Who is black these days is not so easy to discern, unless we judge purely by skin color, which the liberal lexicon sometimes does, and sometimes does not.
Yeah, so I actually watched about a minute forty of that clip and I didn’t see where anyone said he wasn’t black. And remember above when I said “Not saying some nut somewhere hasn’t said something…”? There’s your nut. Good job, Fox News. You have now made people like Kevin dumber in that they now believe it’s a liberal thing to say things like that. It isn’t.
In fact, of all the disparaging (and perfectly true) things I’ve said about Ben Carson, I don’t think a single one of them had anything to do with his ethnicity.
Way to hijack a thread, though.
Not trying to hijack. Just trying to get to your knee jerk assumption this guy is black.
Maybe he doesn’t want to be identified by race.
Maybe there is academia out there questioning his race (his “blackness”) because of his actions.
In the new liberal political correctness era, shouldn’t we wait until we answer those questions before assuming he is “black”?
Then if he is, decide/debate whether to treat his perversions as protected victim hood, or simply as a pervert?
I was concerned for you, that as a self proclaimed liberal, you did not make that never ending inquiry, and investigation before saying this guy should be fired.
Saying that perversion like this should be fired, without inquiring into special victim hood status is a conservative’s job.
…..unless you are getting more conservative.
Kevin, you’re a man having an argument with nobody about nothing. Give it a rest.
The guy’s email sinks to a level of inappropriateness that merits immediate dismissal in my mind. You’re the one who brought up race for no apparent reason whatsoever. I guess it’s because you’d prefer to talk about than than the story itself. Whatever, dude. You’re not even actually engaging me–or anyone–on anything other than your own fictitious ideas about others’ opinions. Boring.
