Columbia University is planning six additional graduation ceremonies for students based on race, sexuality and income level.

According to the university’s website, they will be offering virtual ceremonies for Native American, Asian, Latinx, Black, first generation and/or low income students and a “Lavendar” ceremony for LGBTQIA+ students during the last week of April, described as “Multicultural Graduation Ceremonies.”

The virtual ceremonies do not replace the general commencement ceremony, but rather provides “a more intimate setting for students and guests to gather, incorporate meaningful cultural traditions and celebrate the specific contributions and achievements of their communities,” the website says.

Students must register by March 21 to get their “multicultural graduation gift,” the website added.

Mercy Muroki, senior researcher at The Centre for Social Justice and graduate student in social policy at the University of Oxford, tweeted: “Racially and sexually segregated graduation ceremonies. One of the ‘best’ universities in the world. If you want to know what going backwards looks like, this is it.”

Oregon’s Menstrual Dignity Act has layers of perversion. In July of last year, democratic Governor Kate Brown signed the “Menstrual Dignity Act” which requires schools k-12 to carry and provide free sanitary products to students with instructions on how they are supposed to be used. The installs have begun, according to a video posted be @libsoftiktok.

The Portland school district stated, “starting next year (2022-2022), products will be available in all restrooms (male, female and all-gender) in every PPS building where education occurs.”

Fox News reports that “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kits containing instructions and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.

Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
