If you’re lethargic due to light-shaded human beings, you have comrades at Gettysburg College. The same goes for frustration over folks who were born with penises and are coincidentally men.
Hence, a protest of sorts was recently planned at the private Pennsylvania school. As part of a “Peace and Justice” senior project, the Gender Sexuality and Resource Center was set to host a painting and writing extravaganza for those “tired of white [cisgender] men.”
A social media post exhibits the event’s flyer. To all those interested:
A P&J Senior Project
Tired of White Cis Men?
Come paint and write about it.
Saturday, November 12th, 7-9 p.m.
According to Fox Digital, the resultant art would be displayed in the dining hall.
An anonymous alum told the outlet he was “pretty upset.” As a white cis graduate, he found the idea egregious:
“[T]he fact that basically people are being allowed to discriminate based on sexuality and race is not something that was ever…taught to me. … [T]he one thing Gettysburg used to always strive for was diversity, equity and inclusion but in an actual good way that you could have conservatives, you could have liberals, you could have actual conversations.”
He’s wrong about discrimination — concerning potential event participation. In fact, judging from headlines, many white cis men are sick of white cis men. It’s an inclusive ailment:
If Gettysburg is a typical school, it should’ve expected a terrific turnout. However, the woke program is being reworked.
The alumnus told Fox News Digital that he believes the event was postponed because “they thought they were going to get away with it” until “it got shared on to an Instagram thing with two million people.”
“And a bunch of people saw it, and they went, ‘What the heck?’” he said, adding that he believes the event sends a “negative” message to Gettysburg alumni and potential donors.
More from the maligned melanin-missing man with male unmentionables:
“I hope…they take this as a learning experience and push back on some of this wokeness…because the primary focus of school should be to educate the next generation and make sure that we have a society that continues to function and think critically.”
Circulars have been scrubbed, and the school has washed its hands:
A spokesperson for Gettysburg College told Fox News Digital the “College became aware of a flyer posted by students on the afternoon of November 10th” and that the “flyer advertised a senior project conducted by a student in the Peace and Justice Program.”
“The flyer was made for a student project and was never endorsed by the College or by Peace and Justice Studies,” the spokesperson said. “The faculty leaders of Peace and Justice Studies have asked the student to reflect on their objectives and restructure their project accordingly. The event is no longer taking place as scheduled or initially constructed, and the flyers have been removed.”
But one senior isn’t surprised by the socially-conscious project:
“The faculty on campus always preaches unity among students on campus but never actually do anything to enact this unity.”
Well, there was this in 2020:

As for “unity,” it depends upon your perspective. America has become increasingly unified — against white cis men. And that doesn’t rely on an event at Gettysburg College.
Across the country, there’s a dawning age of enlightenment:
