Gettysburg College has postponed a paint-and-write event hosted by its Gender Sexuality and Resource Center for people “tired of white cis men.”
The private Pennsylvania College offered the event as part of a Senior Project for Peace and Justice, or “P&J,” but postponed it after it was shared online.
The event, originally scheduled for Saturday November 12, urged people to “draw and write about” how they are fed up with straight white men.

The pieces from the event would then be displayed in the school dining room for the campus.
An anonymous Gettysburg alumnus told Fox News Digital that he was “pretty upset” by the event and that “as a white cis man, the fact that people are fundamentally allowed to be discriminated against based on sexuality and race wasn’t something that was ever in was the Gettysburg I was taught.”
“Even as a conservative, Gettysburg has always strived for diversity, equity and inclusion, but in a really good way that you could have conservatives, you could have liberals, you could have real conversations,” he said. “They might have this academic back and forth as a liberal arts college.”
The alumnus told Fox News Digital that he believes the event was postponed because “they thought they’d get away with it” until “it was shared on an Instagram thing with 2 million people.”
“And a bunch of people saw it and said, ‘What the heck?'” he said, adding that he believes the event sends a “negative” message to Gettysburg alumni and potential donors.

“I hope they take this as a learning experience and push back some of that vigilance that you’ve seen, because the primary focus of school should be educating the next generation and making sure we have a society that continues to function and think critically,” he said.
A current senior at Gettysburg College, who spoke about anonymity for fear of punishment, told Fox News Digital that they were “not at all surprised that a poster like this would be distributed around the college, considering that in the middle of campus three there’s one.” public drag show took place or four weeks before.”
“Typically, the rhetoric on posters of this type tends to be more inclusive and welcoming to the student audiences. But that rhetoric is just divisive,” the student said. “Faculty on campus always preaches unity among students on campus, but never really does anything to actualize that unity.”
“The school should not allow this type of rhetoric as it openly and boldly contradicts what the college wants from its student body,” the senior continued.
The student said that “this incident, like many other incidents that have occurred at Gettysburg College, makes me feel that the school is incompetent” and that the “school no longer allows students to speak freely, they only allow it.” Listening to students’ ideas and concerns that fit with the ideas that the school wants to promote.”

“The school doesn’t have a clear picture of what students really think about college,” the student said. “Most are upset and discouraged that the school is improving not only from this event but from many other events that have taken place before it.”
This is not the first such incident on a college campus in America. In 2019, Yale student Isis Davis-Marks wrote a comment promising to monitor white males on campus and collect dirt to undermine them at possible future later-life confirmation hearings.
“I’m watching you white boy,” the student wrote.

At the University of California, Berkeley, whites were barred from the public areas of off-campus student housing last August. Other colleges in America have seen similar initiatives aimed at white people.
Neither Gettysburg College nor the student organizer responsible for the event responded to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
