She the North

Instead of a "We the North" message, as in, we, of all genders, ethnicities, religious beliefs, etc., a new speaker series, She The North, looks to empower women in the sports industry. As quoted in the CTV article, "it's inclusion, it's opportunity, it's diversity."

funny it's said to be "inclusion".. but right off the start it already removed half of the population with the "she" from "we".

I sometimes wonder if one's being a troll for pointing these things out, or, if things like this are legitimate issues we should all be concerned about. The impact of these messages on the younger generations are not likely to be felt until years from now.

For a group that likes to call others snowflakes, it’s hilarious how many of them get so easily “triggered” or seek out things to be offended by

I'm curious how things will unfold when all these "women-only" things finally collide with the non-binary-self-identified-as-anything crowds.

You have to be kidding, right? I'm pretty sure Dynasty12345's "triggered" comment was made as a joke vis-a-vis the left-leaning crowd. This was also not sought out. It was literally on the front page of the Metro paper, today. The sheer irony of this subject is benumbing, i.e. let's celebrate inclusion and diversity by excluding others. Mind explodes!

and you were so triggered by it you decided to start a new thread. People like you are doing the same as you claim the so called "SJWs" are doing. Getting offended by everything that does not go along with your world view. The funny thing is that you and others like you have become what you bash the most, you're SJWs, just for another team. SAD.

This.

As per my other posts, left-leaning, SJW ideology calls for attacking the messenger directly, without actually confronting the issue. This is a prime example. Am I offended by "She the North"? No. Am I pointing out the hypocrisy of it? Yes. How wonderful it would be to have a meaningful debate, without being accused of being who knows what.

You want to see a simple, real, sought out "triggered" SJW example? Here:

- costumes for Amazonian women in movie, produced by a woman, showing shoulders and legs = good.
- costumes for Amazonian women in movie, produced by a man, showing shoulders, legs and abdomens = bad.

Need I explain more?

Yes, but when one side likes to go around and make fun of people being triggered, it's nice to call them out on BS

Okay, okay, but I think I found a solution. Here's a critic's view of a white dude who identifies as a Filipino woman. It is very educational. The proper term is transracial. Original video of the white man who identifies as a Filipino woman, here. So, there is a solution to include all of us, in She the North. Smiling Face With Open Mouth
