Five lies they teach your kids in freshman orientation

Today’s freshman orientation serves as a crash-course on how to navigate the politically correct halls of higher education, where words are violence, gender is a choice, and all whites are racist.

So writes Jennifer Kabbany, editor of The College Fix, in a piece published by the Independent Women’s Forum.

Kabbany breaks down what freshmen can expect from these welcome-to-college trainings, “the first step in a four-year indoctrination process that aims to ultimately warp everything you’ve taught your kids to believe.”

Lie No. 1: White privilege is real: Skin color is treated as the most important factor about a person on campus.

Lie No. 2: Words are violence: The First Amendment is one of America’s greatest achievements, but on campus it’s anathema.

Lie No. 3: One in five co-eds will be sexually assaulted: One of the most oft-repeated higher education stats is that one-in-five women will be sexually assaulted or raped in college — a figure that’s been fully debunked.

Lie No. 4: Gender is a choice: One of the first experiences students encounter is the complex and confusing world of preferred gender pronouns, such as “ze,” “hir” and “xem.”

Lie No. 5: Being colorblind is racist: For the student who wants to take a stand against critical race theory on campus, the road will be difficult.

Freshman orientation is a landmine for young, impressionable teens away from home for the first time in their lives. And that’s exactly what college leaders bank on.
