In recent days, a student attending Oberlin College in Ohio, an institute of higher learning that costs around $80,000 per year to attend, claims he was left "angry" and "scared" after "cisgender" (that would be straight) males were 'allowed' in to install radiators in a dorm that was dedicated to transgender students and women. Apparently, the school didn't look hard enough for technicians who were born men but now claim to be women.
Writing in the Oberlin Review, the school's newspaper, Peter Fray-Wentzer blasted school administrators for giving students just one day's notice Oct. 7 regarding the upgrades to the radiators at the Baldwin Cottage dorm.
“I was angry, scared, and confused. Why didn’t the College complete the installation over the summer, when the building was empty? Why couldn’t they tell us precisely when the workers would be there? Why were they only notifying us the day before the installation was due to begin?” Fray-Witzer complained.
“In general, I am very averse to people entering my personal space. This anxiety was compounded by the fact that the crew would be strangers, and they were more than likely to be cisgender men," the student continued.
When the work crew showed up on Oct. 8 to install the new radiators, Fray-Witzer said he asked if he could be exempt from having one installed in his room – but was denied the request.
Fray-Witzer said he was “mildly violated” and angry when the workers returned the following day to check the radiators were actually working.
The student said only women and trans students are permitted to live on the second and third floors of the Baldwin Cottage dormitory.
The student claimed that it was "clear" Oberlin College administrators had not made any special request that "male workers not be allowed onto the upper floors" of the dorm in order to carry out their work -- which, if that idiocy was carried to its logical conclusion would have meant those students, including Fray-Witzer, would be awfully cold this winter.
In addition, the student claimed that others "weren't entirely comfortable" with those alpha-male types coming into their dorm, either.
“I understand, of course, that installations like this are routine; the College needs to improve its facilities occasionally, and who am I to stand in the way of that? After all, I get a brand-spanking-new radiator, right in time for the cold weather,” Fray-Witzer noted, accurately.
“But why not finish the project during the four months of the summer semester, when the building was unoccupied? Why not alert us earlier to the intrusion? Why didn’t the College make a schedule detailing when the workers would be likely to arrive at each dorm and in each room?" he continued.
“They should have taken measures to keep students comfortable and safe — especially those who have elected to live in a specifically designated safe space.” Fray-Witzer concluded.
It's hard to fathom how someone like this made it to adulthood, much less how they will function as an adult in grown-up society. But unfortunately, people like him are becoming far more numerous thanks to our overly pampered, entitled Millennial population.
Young people like this waif have no idea what it is like to suffer, to be deprived, to have to fight hard or work hard to get ahead. And worse, they are the 'future' of our country.
Which means, we may not really have a future if we have to rely on triggered little snowflakes like him to defend our country.
