Report: University Offers “History of Karen” Class on “Weaponizing” of “White Womanhood”

Florida State University will offer a class titled, the “History of Karen” which will examine the “weaponizing” of “white womanhood,” according to Campus Reform.

The flyer for the summer 2021 course also includes a quote about white women from New York Times columnist Charles Blow, which reads: “The activation of white terror is a white woman’s soft power. We like to masculinize white supremacy, to presume it reeks of testosterone, when in fact, it is just as likely to be spritzed by perfume.”

Campus Reform reports:

The course advertises a syllabus of books including Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall, Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman by Anne Helen Peterson, and Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower by Brittney Cooper, on whom Campus Reform previously reported after she said “F*ck each and every Trump supporter.”

The course will be taught by Megan Martinez, whose profile states, “she primarily researches the history of racial violence and racial inequality in the US and its legacies.”

Conservative Groups At The University Of FL Get Suspended Over COVID-19 Rules

Three conservative student organizations at the University of Florida have reportedly been suspended for allegedly violating the school’s COVID-19 policies.

The three organizations, Turning Point USA, Young Americans for Freedom, and Network of Enlightened Women chapters were told by Heather White, who is the University of Florida Dean of Students, that they “were observed not complying with” the school’s rules and regulations surrounding COVID-19 and were indefinitely suspended “pending resolution of the allegations.”

Daily Caller reports:

In a letter obtained by Campus Reform, White alleged that the Turning Point chapter had violated university policy by hosting an unsanctioned and unregistered event on “Norman Field,” an outdoor public field located on the university’s campus. White also stated that some chapter members were observed not wearing “appropriate face coverings” or maintaining “appropriate physical distance.”

The suspension means that, according to the letter, the groups will lose “all privileges and access to all campus resources and services, for a period of time, including, but not limited to, the use of University space, participation in University programs, activities, events and services, and registration of gatherings and events.”

Abigail Streetman is the secretary of the University of Florida Turning Point chapter and she told Campus Reform, “The event in question took place outside in a big open field with people wearing masks. Given such circumstances, the university’s decision to suspend all of the clubs seems extreme.”

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.), commented on the story saying, “Leftist at universities have always wanted to silence young conservatives. STAND STRONG!”
