Some #yOUrbad Tweets I'd Like to See


It seems that some delicate souls at the University of Oklahoma, upset about gender pronouns and whatnot, have created their own hashtag: #yOUrbad. Surprisingly, there are several tweets these students haven't yet thought of, so as a proud alumnus I'm happy to do my part.
  • The OU student union has a Chick-fil-A #yOUrbad
  • Per @Newsweek, "Not all people who menstruate are women." Thus, Brown U. students putting tampons in men's restrooms. Why not OU? #yOUrbad
  • Harvard nixed the offensive title "house master" because of slavery connotation. Yet OU has them: http://bit.ly/2cL70iX #yOUrbad
  • OU employee claims "she has been discriminated against at work because she is black, a woman, and disabled" http://bit.ly/2ccRRDr #yOUrbad
  • Mental health services underfunded even as the microaggressed at #yOUrbad suffer DSM-5 Paranoid Personality Disorder http://bit.ly/2czTjAg
  • OU minority and female faculty outnumbered and receive less pay on average than their white male coworkers http://bit.ly/2cLrj1b #yOUrbad
  • OU agreed to pay $40K to a homophobic misogynist who is on record saying "you went to jail as a b*tch, came home as a dyke" http://bit.ly/1NPOlwQ #yOUrbad
  • OU employee earning $220,000 a year bewails "income inequality" in America #yOUrbad   
  • By allowing men to use the ladies' restroom, OU ignores the concerns of sexual-abuse survivors http://bit.ly/1WL2yBv #yOUrbad

UPDATES:
  • Staff name tags at Vanderbilt include preferred gender pronouns http://heat.st/2c1F3lr Why not OU? #yOUrbad
