4. Annual campus “Speedo Hike” canceled because it might upset sedentary people

California’s Claremont College’s outdoor club, On the Loose (OTL), canceled what was known as the Speedo Hike, where hundreds of students would show up in Speedos and climb nearby Mount Baldy. It was one of the most popular events on campus each year for obvious reasons. But because the attire — which is not required, by the way — could potentially exclude unfit individuals or even those with religious clothing requirements, it had to go.

OTL explained the decision on their Facebook page:

By having the Speedo Hike as our official welcome event each year, we unintentionally sent the message that to participate in OTL, you must be fit and comfortable with your body image. The name “Speedo” itself inherently implies bro-iness. OTL is so much more than just that, but many potentially interested students get turned off to our club each year because of Speedo Hike.

So at first, this highly popular event only “excluded” some people, but by canceling it, it excludes EVERYONE. Now that’s some liberal fairness.

    Alumni of these institutions need to deliver the message by withholding donations. I would guess that some of the absurdities provoked by Title IX can be clarified by “guidance letters” from the Admin undoing the “guidance” offered by Obama’s admin. But the most effective message will come from Parents electing not to send kids to these schools and alumni electing not to support them while they remain bastions of fascist leftism.
