    “Why y’all doing this free labor for white supremacists tho,” another said. Students on Moritz’s floor held a meeting about the content of her post, and after a discussion, she took it down entirely.

    Moritz told the English House Gazette, a Bryn Mawr student blog, that a low point came when she was approached by a peer mentor in her dorm, who instead of offering support began to vilify her. The peer mentor said Moritz had “personally attacked” other students by expressing support for Trump.

    Moritz told Philly.com the response was so hostile she ended up calling a suicide hotline for support. Later, she visited a campus counselor, who she says wasn’t very helpful.

    “She basically defended the people who had said mean things to me,” she told the English House Gazette.

    Bryn Mawr is a women's liberal arts college. Although I know little about is, it sound like a training grounds or Stepford wives.

    It says it is ""Bryn Mawr is for motivated, confident, aware, intellectually curious people." They should add "As long as they all think alike.:"

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Rockette says no minorities have signed up to perform at Trump's inauguration and claims dancing for president will cause women 'trauma'

    • Radio City Rockettes will perform at Trump's inauguration on a voluntary basis
    • An anonymous dancer spoke out - saying dancers felt obligated to perform or lose their position
    • Said she was incensed by Trump's Access Hollwood sexual assault boast and dancing for the president could cause some women trauma
    • Suggested the planned performance was hurting the company's bottom line
    • Another one of the group's dancers took to Instagram to voice her disapproval of Trump
    • Trump's inaugural committee has had difficulty signing big acts; the Rockettes are one of only three groups it's locked down




    'It's almost worse to have 18 pretty white girls behind this man who supports so many hate groups,' the dancer, identified in the article by the pseudonym Mary, said.

    Mary told Marie Claire the mostly-white group's lack of diversity is 'embarrassing' as it is and will be especially noticeable at the Trump ceremony next month in Washington.

    'They're going to be branded in history as one of those women,' she told the publication. 'How's it going to look?'

    Very Political WashPost Critic Robin Givhan Argues In Favor of a Fashion Blacklist for Mrs. Trump


    Robin Givhan, the liberal political columnist who plays fashion writer at The Washington Post, dominated the front of the Style section on Friday with a question: Can a fashion designer in good conscience agree to dress Melania Trump? Givhan argued that blacklisting the new First Lady is a good way to show a social conscience. The Trumps can buy off the rack, so it’s not really a blacklist.

    The subheadline explained: "When it comes to dressing the Trump women, a designer's most natural vehicle for protest -- and patriotism -- is the absence of their name." Would it be "patriotism" if a designer refused to dress Michelle Obama? Perish the thought. Givhan said dressing the First Lady – especially for Inauguration Night, has always been an honor, until Donald Trump inspired “new waves of racism and violence.”

    But this election cycle, nothing is as it has always been. President-elect Donald Trump ran a campaign that framed immigrants, minorities, women and Muslims as “other,” inspiring new waves of racism and violence. Whether to associate with him has become a moral question. Performing during his inauguration, marching in his parade and attending his swearing-in ceremony are all decisions that have caused personal and public soul-searching for people in the public eye.

    And so, catering to his wife quickly became an ethical dilemma for designers. Would doing so signal tacit approval of her husband’s scorched-earth tactics?

    [clip]

    Givhan implicitly argues against the conservative pushback without being forthright: So a Christian baker has to make a cake for the gay wedding, but the gay fashion designer can refuse service to the President of the United States? It’s not the same, she argued:

    Anyone with disposable income can buy a designer’s wares at retail — and even some red-carpet celebrities choose to do so. Hayden Panettiere purchased a Tom Ford gown for the 2014 Golden Globes. For the 2016 Globes, Bryce Dallas Howard picked up her Jenny Packham gown at Neiman Marcus.

    That’s why declining to dress a celebrity is not the equivalent of refusing service. In doing so, designers would in fact be refusing a favor, with all the publicity that goes along with it.

    What about patriotism? Should personal feelings and personal satisfaction be put aside out of respect for the symbolism of the first lady? Not necessarily. Protest that grows out of a desire to make the country better, to push it to live up to its ideals, is surely a form of patriotism….for those designers for whom fashion serves as their voice in the world, they should not feel obligated to say something in which they do not believe.

    Good grief, could these people be more petty and childish? This whole screed is the ravings of a mental case.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.d114628a95b9

    There are multiple considerations: How do designers view their work? What is the role of the fashion designer in the broader culture?



    This is how out of touch these people are and how they live in their own little echo chamber bubble. Nobody outside of Hollywood and a few uber rich elites gives a damn about fashion designers.

    I believe this woman is pissing in the wind. If she believes other designers will pay any attention to this silly idea, she is out of her head.
    For example dress designers are in the business to make a buck. Melania Trump as a clothes horse for their product, brings in the bucks.
    Some people I suppose just enjoy making a damned fool of themselves.

    I'm pretty sure that's why the baker didn't want to bake the cake.
