The learned students of Pembroke have got their knickers in a twist over the theme of a forthcoming dance (BOP). Initially it was going to be themed Around The World in 80 Days. However, for reasons that only students could come up with, the theme has been banned.
It seems that Pembroke were worried about offending ethnic minorities.
Well you see, people would come in costume.
Still not with you?
The costumes would be from various parts of the world.
Pembroke feel that cultural appropriation may be offensive. Hence, they have banned it.
Here is an extract from the University online newspaper The Tab, explaining this nonsense.
Students divided into two camps over whether the JCR is restricting their freedom of expression or preventing offence towards ethnic minoritiesPembroke JCR decided to change the theme from “Around the World in 80 Days” due to a fear of the “potential for offense” [sic].
In an email sent to Pembroke students earlier this week, the Junior Parlour Committee said a lengthy debate preceded the decision to change the theme of the bop.
Yet again students are displaying all the traits that university is meant to knock out of people, namely:
2 Narrow mindedness
5 Dictatorial tendencies, and
6 Lousy spelling......"offence" is not spelt "offense".
I dread the day when these embryonic dictators assume roles of power and influence in the world.
Pembroke JCR, well deserving Prats of The Week!
