Gettysburg College has postponed a painting and writing event hosted by its Gender Sexuality and Resource Center for people who are “Tired of White cis men.”

The private Pennsylvania college offered the event as part of a peace and justice, or “P&J,” After it was shared online, the senior project has been postponed.

The event, originally scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 12, told people to “come paint and write about” How they are tired of white straight men.

The pieces from the event would then be displayed in the school’s dining hall for the campus to view.

Fox News Digital was told by an anonymous Gettysburg alumnus that he was “pretty upset” That and the event “as a White, cis male, the fact that basically people are being allowed to discriminate based on sexuality and race is not something that was ever in the Gettysburg that was taught to me.”

“Even as a conservative, the one thing Gettysburg used to always strive for was diversity, equity and inclusion but in an actual good way that you could have conservatives, you could have liberals, you could have actual conversations,” He stated. “You could have that academic back and forth as a liberal arts college.”

Fox News Digital was informed by the alumnus that he believed the event had been postponed. “they thought they were going to get away with it” until “it got shared on to an Instagram thing with 2 million people.”

“And a bunch of people saw it, and they went, ‘What the heck?’” He said that he believed the event sent a message. “negative” message to Gettysburg alumni or potential donors

“I hope that they take this as a learning experience and push back on some of this wokeness that you’ve seen, because the primary focus of school should be to educate the next generation and make sure that we have a society that continues to function and think critically,” He stated.

Fox News Digital was informed by a Gettysburg College senior who spoke anonymously out of fear of punishment. “not surprised at all that a poster like this is spread through the college, considering there was a public drag show in the middle of campus three or four weeks prior to this.”

“Normally, rhetoric on posters of this nature tends to be more inclusive and welcoming to the target student groups. But this rhetoric is simply divisive,” The student replied. “The faculty on campus always preaches unity among students on campus but never actually do anything to enact this unity.”

“The school should not allow this type of rhetoric as it openly and boldly defies what the college says they want to achieve from their student body,” The senior continued.

This was the student’s response “incident, like many other incidences that have occurred at Gettysburg College, makes me feel as if the school is incompetent” And that’s it! “school no longer allows students to speak freely, they only allow ideas and concerns of students to be heard that fit their ideas that the school would like to promote.”

“The school does not have an accurate grasp of how students truly feel about the college,” The student replied. “Most are angered and discouraged that the school is improving not just from this event but many other events that have occurred before this.”

This is not the first time this has happened on an American college campus. Isis Davis Marks, a Yale student wrote an editorial in 2019 that promised to track and collect dirt about White men on campus in order for them to be undermined in possible future confirmation hearings.

“I’m watching you, white boy,” The student wrote.
