Exclusionary Inclusion

I promise, folks, I didn’t make this up:

“[Cambridge] is an inclusive environment and we expect all our staff and visitors to uphold our principles. There is no place here for anyone who cannot,” a spokesperson for the university said.

We are so inclusive that we’ll exclude anybody who isn’t our ideological clone. Makes total sense.

    1. It’s like these business establishments who boast of being “Hate-Free Zones” displaying signs like “HATE DOESN’T LIVE HERE”
      …and alongside it on the front entrance another sign: RESTROOMS ARE FOR CUSTOMERS ONLY. VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED.
      And should a customer say something “hateful” or discriminatory to someone or to one of the employees ……


  1. OK, you’ll have to laugh. I was explaining the term cis-het to my father, aged 94.5. I told him he was cis-het.
    He asked: But does it matter that I was already married to a woman by the time I started graduate school? That I had not realized it was a problem?
    Me: That you had not realized it was a problem is Privilege.
    Of course this was after hours conversation but still I found it funny because he, 94.5, slightly cognitively impaired and hard of hearing, instantly decided this was a problem specifically in The Profession.
