If you don’t want to study white writers, don’t major in English

“The petition whines that ‘a year spent around a seminar table where the literary contributions of women, people of color, and queer folk are absent actively harms all students, regardless of their identity.'”

This is at Yale U., which costs more than $40,000 a year to attend. For some rich daddies that might be a small price to pay to get rid of the obnoxious child who would write this stupid petition for exemption from Shakespeare, et al. Not that there aren’t plenty of second- and third-rate queer, women and black and Hispanic writers to replace them with. A few good ones. Very few.

But face it folks most English majors are not only whiners, sloppy dressers, seldom bathers and nose-pickers, they are getting a degree that will require talking their way into a job. Any job. I remember. I majored in English.

  1. Watching nowadays students is the best theater of absurdity there is. Come back, please, corporal punishment.

  2. Haha, fat chance. Spare the rod and spoil the child, is the best known restating of Proverbs 13:24. Been far too much sparing of rods, obviously.
