We at the Babbling Bear do not know how to process the fact that Cornell alumnus Bill Mahar awarded President Martha Pollack the Cojones Award for rejecting Student Assembly Resolution 31: Mandating Content Warnings for Traumatic Content in the Classroom. Resolution 31 would have prevented students with PTSD from experiencing anxiety, fear, irritability, flashbacks, and panic attacks. In short, Resolution 31 would have prevented violence and harm.
President Pollack’s decision was so wrong that it was unanimously supported by right wing extremist organizations, including the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression, the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, and the Cornell Review.
We at the Babbling Bear prefer to think that President Pollack rejected Resolution 31 just so she would win the Cojones Award as part of a gender reassignment process pioneered by John Money at John Hopkins University so that she could become the first Ivy League Trans president.
