Leftists like to use scholarships to reward feckless dweebs for… being feckless dweebs. That’s about it. That’s why said scholarships are based on irrelevant details, like skin tone or how many times you cried while watching Blackfish. Or in this case sexuality. Say, that sounds a lot like discrimination right? Yeah, that’s because it is. Sonia Kruger delves into that more below.
It sort of feels like reverse discrimination to me in a way. You’re asking somebody about their sexual preferences, and I find that that’s a really odd thing to do, in any kind of capacity, whether it’s a job or whether it’s a scholarship. I don’t think it should have anything to do with the awarding of a scholarship. I think a scholarship should be given on merit.
She hit the nail on its soft-skulled, liberal head. As her co-host would go on to inadvertently point out, these scholarships exist to seek out the most “disadvantaged” people and reward them. The problem? It creates an arena in which ninnies compete to be the biggest victim. The bigger victim you are, the more dough you rake in (see Yes, Democrats Need You to Stay Poor and Helpless, Here’s Their Twisted Strategy…).
This contributes to a bigger problem within the liberal world of education. For instance, qualified Asian-Americans are being denied entry into Ivy League schools. Meanwhile pansexual, septum-pierced, man-lady Astrid gets to go major in women’s studies at Yale. Hey, ze earned it. By being crappy.
The moral of the story? If you’re a student, start identifying as an “ethnic,” gender-fluid amoeba with nary a nickel. Pump up the disadvantaged factor. Just kidding, that’s only relevant if you want money for college. Double kidding. See, there are other options for non-basket-cases. Like regular scholarships (see Mike Rowe Offers New Scholarship. Wimpy Socialists Need Not Apply…). Remember those? They’re based on grades, abilities, hard work… Mostly stuff that leftists hardly bother to concern themselves with.
Or hey, just don’t go to college. It’s a crapshoot no matter how you slice it.
