+OverSword Posted March 23 #1 Share Posted March 23 Quote The president of West Texas A&M University has canceled a student drag show after accusing the performances of mocking women and exhibiting “derisive, divisive and demoralizing misogyny.” Walter Wendler said drag shows “stereotype women in cartoon-like extremes for the amusement of others and discriminate against womanhood,” in an email to students and staff on Tuesday. “Does a drag show preserve a single thread of human dignity? I think not,” he wrote. He went on to claim that drag shows go against the university’s mission to “treat all people equally.” “Drag shows are derisive, divisive and demoralizing misogyny, no matter the stated intent. Such conduct runs counter to the purpose of WT,” he wrote. “A person or group should not attempt to elevate itself or a cause by mocking another person or group.” Link 6 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
