Castration Complete

Not a single testicle in the room.

An armed man who burst into a classroom at Elizabeth City State University was role-playing in an emergency response drill, but neither the students nor assistant professor Jingbin Wang knew that.”I was prepared to die at that moment,” Wang said Tuesday.

The Friday drill, in which a mock gunman threatened panicked students in the American foreign policy class with death, prompted university officials to apologize this week to Wang and offer counseling to faculty and students.

OK, they’ve accounted for at least one wang, but still no balls in inventory.

Not one take charge guy in the room?

Every guy in that room should have to wear a Scarlet “C” so as to let all females in the immediate area know he’s a wuss. I understand that some women enjoy their men subservient and unable to think for their own survival, and there is a reason why I don’t know any.

Think I’m being harsh?

The mock intruder, a campus police officer, carried a red plastic model gun, according to a university news release.

Wang, who teaches history and political science, said Tuesday in a telephone interview he was having a discussion in his foreign policy class when the man came to the door and said he wanted to talk with him.

“Suddenly the man pointed the gun at me,” he said. Wang said he did not know whether the gun was real. “I saw the gun but didn’t have too much time to think about that,” he said. “The man was serious.”

Seriously stupid to be pointing a fake gun and ordering me against a wall.

The odds were eight against one. If even 25% of the people in that room had any survival instinct beyond appeasement, that campus security officer would have needed EMT’s. Books, chairs, ballpoint pens, or *gasp* a closed fist. Why are these people so willing to talk until they die? Where in the hell does that come from?

I guess “PoliSci – Why Try” is still an accurate catchphrase at American colleges.

    Actually, if, say, a fellow in the front row had jumped up and hit the mock intruder with his chair, everyone would say he over-reacted, that the toy gun was obviously a toy gun and not a weapon of massive destruction. The poor fellow would have had to undergo reeducation in a women’s study group as an evil patriarchal oppressor and would never see his T’s or his wang again.

    WNDY understands the game of Academic Gotcha, and its consequences. One reason they cannot possibly have CCW on campus is because it would interfere with this kind of activist political theater – a device that’s used both to hammer-home Marxist “Teachable Moments” and to inflict neuroses and double-blind terrors in the student population.

    “having a discussion in his foreign policy class…”

    Something seems ironic about that, perhaps they’d be discussing some theoretical means of conflict resolution (which when applied practically will have the exact opposite of the intended result), theory which has a basis in the idea in mankind that there really aren’t evil people… and then an evil man could burst through the door and start shooting.
