The Democratic Socialists of America National Convention was held this weekend in Atlanta,
Georgia... It was as 'entertaining' and solutions-based as you might imagine...
Thank you comrades for an exhausting, frustrating, empowering, inspiring, and necessary weekend at #DSAConvention #DSACon19. No matter whatever infighting or factional division we've faced, we are all united for democratic socialism. Solidarity Forever 💪 🌹 pic.twitter.com/YHjJsiNoAt— Asheville DSA (@AshevilleDSA) August 4, 2019
Except - as we note below - if you use gendered language, mumble, wear 'heavy' scents, or misuse doors??!!

A chipper young gentleman (who identified himself as James Jackson from Sacramento and said his preferred pronouns were he/him) stepped up to the mic offering what he called a "quick point of personal privilege"...
"Guys... can we please keep the chatter to a minimum? I’m one of the people who’s very prone to sensory overload. There’s a lot of whispering and chatter going on, it’s making it very difficult for me to focus. Please, can we just... I know we’re all fresh and ready to go, but can we please just keep the chatter to a minimum? "
The moderator replied, “Thank you, comrade.”

But, it appears the sensitive Sacramento-an's words triggered another 'comrade' who exclaimed (sounding angry):
“Point of personal privilege,” the person said.
“Please do not use gendered language to address everyone!”
“Ok,” the moderator replied, with what appeared to be a resigned look on her face.
But Sacamento-man was not done...

And that was not enough for these snowflakes. Convention rules were extended to include:
No “aggressive scents” in the quiet room
No misuse of doors
No interacting with cops
No talking to the press
