This was a few years ago as part of the training they make you do when becoming an adjunct prof; not technically a DEI-named event, per se.

All the incoming instructors are given a slip of paper describing a person (I was a hispanic single mother who used to teach elementary school but had to quit because of post-partum alcoholism), and the room was split into two teams, each of which took turns picking 5 ppl apiece to put on two spacecrafts that would save these ppl from the apocalypse and leave them to repopulate the species.

Because I apparently lack a strong self-preservation instinct, I pointed out that we should pick 4 young women and 1 man -- in my defense, I figured that women were higher on the intersectionality hierarchy than men, and I also thought it would be seen as okay to be advocating for my own character -- and it was made immediately clear that this whole mode of thought (i.e., rational thinking) was *NOT* appreciated.

We ended up picking a MTF transperson, a menopausal woman in her 50s, and 2 dudes selected for their skills, one of whom was LGBT (but I guess will have to get over that shit, no?). A single early-20s woman, who ended up on board by the lucky chance that she was indigenous and politically active (and "we'll need that" in space), and who I guess will be mitochondrial Eve for the whole species.

As I was watching this process unfold -- and I swear to God it was being taken seriously by the participants who ended up being the decisionmakers (although, obviously, every white male / STEM person knew to shut tf up and nod along) -- I remember thinking I needed to make a thread about it.

A long-haired, visibly greasy, clearly gay dude who I swear to god couldn't have been more than 5'5" asserted to the group that "new technology" allows FTM transpersons to get pregnant so there is no reason to take that into consideration.

He was probably serious (and just retarded; I should mention this place isn't exactly harvard), but the statement is more interesting to ponder as a Dare. No one took him up on it.

the universities were always viewed as a place to silo these freaks. it was thought that they would be harmless there and just teach Moby Dick to retarded 19 y/os. it was a misake. they should all have been Pol Potted in a field.

Yeah. While it's hard not to view this experience as a metaphor/microcosm for how progressivism warps decisionmaking in more-important contexts,

the real lesson that should not be overlooked is that post-secondary education is complete and utter shit.

What's funny is that there's a real (rational) case for racial diversity here, particularly given that our fake population obviously did not exhibit the same racial correlations that the IRL population does (although it would have been hilarious if they passed out like 7 african-american slips and they were all like "gangbanger," "on welfare," "absentee father of 6," "goes fishing off side of overpass every weekday," "incarcerated", etc.).

But no: it's like rationality itself was the enemy to be defeated, and diversity is merely a weapon in furtherance of that end.

Neil Stephenson did a book on this called Seveneves. It's 180. The near menopausal POTUS shoots herself up into space and manages to crap out one baby. Her narcisstic descendants, ostracized by the descendants of the other 6 Eves who numerically dominate, then proceed to wage space war on the rest of the species.

Book ends with the space humans discovering the alpha males who didn't go up into space survived in bunkers in Alaska and built a totally different but vastly more primitive civilization under ground from the enlightened space civilization. Stephenson had to shit on the men folk that way.

imagine the mental landscape of a person, ostensibly trained in teenage psychology, and who has undoubtedly seen this exact same scenario play out in class after class, year after year, who becomes newly exasperated when it unsurprisingly happens again.
