Doofus Of The Day #732

Today's award goes to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) for this excess of political correctness at taxpayer expense.

The ... NEA has awarded a grant of $100,000 for a multimedia game teaming players with an alien who fights to improve women’s auras damaged by negative self-esteem, discrimination and eating disorders.

. . .

According to Inside Spelman, “The backstory of HERadventure begins when HER, a warrior woman and inhabitant of Earth’s sister planet, comes to Earth to investigate why it is causing her native planet to freeze and slowly die. HER discovers that the auras of Earth’s women are diminishing. Consequently, Earth and other parts of the universe are negatively impacted. HER enlists a corps of 'superheroes in training' (HERadventure users) to take meaningful action and offer solutions to issues such as negative self-esteem, discrimination, eating disorders, and depression, which are causing women’s auras to suffer.”

Those needing an additional infusion of insanity can watch a couple of videos of the HERadventure project at its YouTube channel.  I don't recommend watching them, mind you - and I refuse to embed any of them here.  I want to protect my readers' brains from the migraines that would be caused by such an overdose of moonbattery!  (It appears to be too late to protect those running the NEA . . . )

And yet the Establishment wonders why we out here in the sticks don't take them seriously as arbiters or taste and judgement. *snort*
