I’ve been reading up some more on the career of “They,” the Berkeley Latinx / Chicanx Studies major and campus activist currently in the pokey on charges of murdering one woman, attempting to murder another, and home invading a third.It seems like a story that a Berkeley journalist like Michael Lewis could use to illustrate How We Live Now.I’m struck by how competitive the Social Justice Warrior pre-career track has become. The SJW worldview is of course particularly attractive to the unattractive, like They.On the other hand, the competition in college to get a paying SJW career after college is so fierce that perhaps the winners in the SJW sweepstakes at Berkeley tend to be pretty much the same kind of people who succeed in other competitive fields, such as pharmaceutical sales and marrying rich guys: good-looking conformist go-getters.As I pointed out a couple of days ago, the LGBT Studies major coed They is accused of attempting to murder got perhaps more attention at a campus protest against sexual violence than They got, even though They was the official co-leader.That isn’t surprising because she’s more striking looking than the average lady LGBT major.She’s a slender part(?)-East Asian with dyed blonde-grey hair and Joan Crawford-sized socially constructed eyebrows.Poor They was just out-hustled by this Tiger Daughter.And then there’s They’s co-leader at They’s big protest, a South Asian Gender Studies major who is a wonderful example of Tiger Daughterism.She’s pictured above and below.(I’m going to leave names out.)Here she is posing with a poster of herself as part of her campaign for student government.Her Facebook page looks like an Ole Miss sorority leader’s Facebook page, with lots of pictures of herself looking fetching.But the photos of her looking adorable also often come with denunciations of cis-heterosexist whites, suitable for getting ahead in Berkeley’s social climate.
For example, here’s her Facebook post announcing auditions for an anti-cis-heterosexist-white version of Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues:
I particularly like how she posts numerous pictures of herself snuggling with her tall, square-jawed fraternity bro boyfriend, just like an Ole Miss sorority sister … but, being a Berkeley student, her exultation over her success in the heterosexual mating market is all, purportedly, in the name of LGBT Awareness:
And this one:
How is a tiny mestizo man like They supposed to compete with these Tiger Daughters in the SJW business?It’s just not fair.As I wrote a few years ago:
Have you ever noticed that basically everything you are supposed to believe in these days—feminism, diversity, etc.—turns out in practice to just be another way for hot babes, rich guys, super salesmen, cunning financiers, telegenic self-promoters, and powerful politicians to get themselves even more money and power?[Comment at Unz.com]
