Got my liberal reindoctrination! #7147210

Just finished a ten day virtual residency for my writing MFA program at the University of Southern Maine. Some of you guys that think I am liberal would have had a heart attack.

Among other things I learned some of my writing is sexist. I spent several decade working with female attorneys, and one of them should have corrected me on my thinking, no? No indeed.

What I wrote was a scene where the protagonist is dancing with a woman, she gets tired, and the protagonist observes to himself that she isn't in good condition. Apparently that was treating women as a piece of meat or head of livestock.

The low point of the residency came when one of the students broke down in tears after one of the instructors read a poem critical of a former president. She said she was a conservative, and the president in question wasn't so bad. She wasn't mistreated after that, but became an object of curiosity surrounded by so many liberals. One other student identified himself as a conservative. I said I was half and half, which probably didn't earn me any brownie points, but since when did James worry about approval of a crowd.

Other comments made aren't repeatable here, lest I earn myself a vacation. But I have to report that the liberal bastion of academia remains strong.

Good. Today's academia isn't in teaching, it's in classically conditioning. e.g. "entitlement"

There is something to what you say, SJA. I'd much prefer to keep liberal/conservative out of the program, but some of the instructors are real activists.

A liberal conflicted by his liberalism. That's what one would expect.

any person that hunts, fishes or traps that would vote for a democrat are just too dense to see the big picture of what they really want, which is 100% control of you

Iím pretty sure that like you and most people, they just want money. Youíre not so different, are you?

James, I always appreciate your opinion because it is backed by more than what your grandpa/uncle/father/brother/postman passed down to you. At least, that is what passes as wisdom on this forum. I donít understand them and if I havenít been, I will certainly be branded as a liberal. As you know, the real turd in the punch these people are drinking, is we donít care!

James, did you make sure you used all the proper pronouns in your writings?

and you say something like , how did you find out the dogs proper pronoun ?
