Remember this little booger?
He’s the Hampshire College nudnik who forced their school’s lawyer to send Turtleboy Sports a cease and desist to stop calling out their students for being morons. His name is Xavier Torres De Janon, and a turtle rider recently sent us this hilarious blog post that the social justice warrior in training wrote about his oppressive school in their student newspaper:
Hampshire College has exploited me. I have done too much free, invisible, unrecognized and unappreciated work for this neoliberal institution. Too many meetings that end in me doing all the work; too many Doodle Polls that I have to beg participation for; too much planning, organizing, supporting and showing up; too much problem-solving for disconnected higher-ups, myopic due to the students and stories they decide to surround themselves with. Too much putting up with the ignorant whiteness and masculinity that dominate circles of power, my energy, time and emotional capabilities drained repeatedly to the indifference of staff, supervisors, faculty, committee members, students, peers. Exploitation with no financial compensation: a neoliberal culture of unpaid internships and volunteering, of erasure and slavery. All I have are CELs and Ingenuity Awards, hollow networking and references, and a strange, erratic reputation out of my control.
So let me get this straight. This little shitstain is going to a very expensive, ultra liberal college in Amherst. While he is there he is doing some sort of internship and getting involved in school activities, which of course is unpaid. As a result he received awards and networking references that will help him get a job after college. But instead of appreciating this he is whining that this is some sort of “slavery” at the hands of “ignorant whiteness and masculinity.” LOL. Masculinity is definitely the enemy of poor little Xavier.
And yet, despite this, Hampshire College no longer invites me to its administrative, suit-and-tie events, common occurrences of first-year Xavier. I am no longer considered in the countless top-down committee appointments, or asked to attend tea with the President, or dinner with the Trustees. You see, despite my sacrifices and incessant work for this ungrateful school, my presence has become too disruptive, radical and ‘illiberal’ for meetings and discussions. Despite the fact that I hold extensive unwritten knowledge and insight given my own unpaid involvement, I am not welcome in governance spaces. Staff members actually have to advocate for me being part of panels and talks, because administration naturally cannot take criticism, although it is essential for this school to ever evolve. This, of course, does not bother me as much as dissapoint and ostracize me, my value unrecognized to the point of silencing, censoring. My graduation will be a sigh of relief, and my return to this school will be questionable.
LOL. This poor thing. He is the face of modern day oppression. What kind of savages don’t let perpetual whiny SJW’s have tea with the school president? I mean, just look how oppressed he’s been!!!
You could say it was my fault, and I agree: I put myself out there, said yes too many times, I agreed and ‘sold out.’ But why must I, again, be the one pointing my finger to this reality? Why must I remind others of my existence, of my body, of my humanity? I digress.
The best part about this kid is that he thinks he actually has value. Newsflash moron – you are worth nothing. They didn’t need your help for doing whatever useless thing you did. They gave you an opportunity to pad your resume, but for some reason you thought you should be paid for their generosity.
Please do not send me an apology email, or an invitation to talk. These are too late, and I no longer care. Unless you can promise me a job, food or a paycheck, I am not interested in furthering these exploitative structures. My Hampshire spirit can only take so much. I simply advise you to resist exploitation and interrupt these processes. I have learned, as always, through experience.
Hey fuckstick, your wealthy parents are already paying for you to go to college. Then you raised even more money with a GoFundMe:
Being a college student is your one and only job, and many people do not have that opportunity. But please, tell me more about why the college should pay you money while you take this four year vacation from reality.
We’ve gotten a million emails about this kid from people at Hampshire College who are sick of him and his SJW friends’ bullshit. Because political correctness turns into fascism and bullying pretty quickly when you don’t agree with them. Evidently the kid started harassing students at a schoolwide meeting on April 19 in a threatening manner. At the meeting he called several students out by name said they were rapists. These students weren’t happy about being called rapists, because rape is a bad thing and evidently they did not rape anyone. So they reported him to administration. Xavier was none too pleased when he found out that he would no longer be the speaker on commencement day:
Once again, he is the victim. Poor kid. He should be allowed to call anyone a rapist in a public forum. If you are a white cis-male then you have no choice but to be reminded every day what a raping piece of shit you are.
Here’s something else we got in an email that made our day:
An email was sent to all of the students complaining about your articles from Joanna Olin at Hampshire stating that there was no longer anything they could do and they were free to seek further legal means on their own accord. This includes Xavier and Jennie.
This makes it all worthwhile. And honestly, they’ll be thanking Turtleboy in a few years. We gave them a cold, hard dose of reality. We taught them that their actions have consequences and free speech gives others the right to criticize their behavior. They thought that by going to their school’s lawyer she could make it all go away. And she tried. But at the end of the day we laughed at her and she realized there was nothing she could do to stop us. And neither can you Xavier. Lesson learned.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
