The Angry Bird Iowa Professor

Last week, the president of the University of Chicago informed incoming students regarding of the expectations they can have regarding the university’s stance on freedom of speech. The president reminded students that the university was a place where differing opinions and views were welcomed. That there were no “trigger warnings” or “safe places” where students could expect to be free from ideas or views with which they may disagree or that offended them. The president of the University of Chicago was rightly praised for standing up for freedom of speech.

Now in contrast comes this story, also out of the country’s heartland. According to University of Iowa Pediatrics Professor Resmiye Oral, the Hawkeyes' mascot Herky promotes anger and violence by the look on his face. “I believe incoming students should be met with welcoming, nurturing, calm, accepting and happy messages,” she wrote to the athletic department, requesting that the mascot have a different expression. “Herky’s angry, to say the least, faces conveying an invitation to aggressively and even violence are not compatible with the verbal messages that we try to convey to and instill in our students and campus community. … As we strive to tackle depression, suicide, violence, and behavioral challenges and help our students succeed, I plead with you to allow Herky to be like one of us, sometimes sad, sometimes happy, sometimes angry, sometimes concentrated.”

Evidently, this professor sees the university as some giant daycare designated to protect the sensitive minds of college toddlers. To date no student has complained about being mentally oppressed by Herky, but we in our humble shop know of one toddling professor…

Whoah there! This is NOT the kids coming in who are playing at being easily injured by anything that upsets them. This case is a simple moron that somehow was allowed by a negligent school to obtain an advanced degree and then hired by another negligent school to teach.

It's a pretty ugly mascot IMO, not that I comprehend the whole mascot and prancing cheer squad stuff anyway. Must be an American thing.

Typical leftist/socialist stereotype. She demands indoctrination of incoming students rather than challenging them to explore their ideas across the free speech boundary. So typical of most universities across Western Society where leftist ideologues have infested the educational community. Time to end the infestation and let students think for themselves. Perhaps if the precious little petals had been exposed to free speech from the start the they would be robust enough to ignore any perceived insults when the get to college/university.

Often it's the Leftard students that ruin their own schools, by being suckered by Leftard teachers and parents. They're too lazy to self-educate.
