College Offers Discounted Prices at Sale If Students Identify as “Women, Disabled, Queer, or Black”
Pundit Press ^ | 5/9/14 | Aurelius

Posted on 05/09/2014 11:22:00 AM PDT by therightliveswithus

In order to bring light to "the gender pay gap," the University of Western Australia Student Guild had a bake sale early this week that offered discounted prices to people it believes are being oppressed by white males and "the system."

The UWA Guild posted prices at a cut rate for people who either "identified" as women or as a number of other things, such as "queer," "disabled," "a person of coulour," or "imdigenous [sic]."

The prices were then followed by the Twitter hashtag, "iamworthmore," which begs the question: if you are worth more, then why are you intentionally lowering prices for people like you?

Here is a picture of one sign advertising the sale:

or as a number of other things, such as "queer," "disabled," "a person of colour," or "imdigenous [sic]."

Twenty cents off for each checkbox? The crippled, lesbian aborigine could really cash in on this.

I remember the college Republicans at some schools getting into trouble for a sale like this in the US when they were doing it to illustrate the injustice of sex and race based admissions and pricing.

According to the United States Supreme Court, you are any gender or race that you "feel" you are.

Cha-Ching!

It’s all fun and games until a white guy walks up and says he identifies as a queer disabled aboriginal (by definition a person of color). Who are you to judge, bake seller? Check your privilege!

Would a woman trapped in a man’s body get the female rate?

Do these idiots have the slightest idea how ridiculous they are?

Tell ‘em you’re “trans-racial”, born white but identify as black. Should work.

Ridiculous - and destructive of a civilized society. But, having just returned from the local grocer — wow are food prices high now! — if the stores want to give discounts for just “ identifying as queer” — well, .........

Wait a minute. Isn’t this exactly what Stossel used as a demo of how unfair and absurd quotas and such are?

Guess he gave these people ideas.

So the illegals get it for free, the entitlement crowd get it for free, disabled women, gays, transgender, black and assorted ethnics get a discount and the whites pay for it all, yeah that seems fair!
