The recent FEDS meeting has been heralded as an incredible success, as students unanimously voted to pass a motion opening up an office for students who are one-legged pirates or come from a one legged pirate background.
At the meeting, the FEDS President made a speech on the motion, saying “At the University of Waterloo, it is important that we are a welcoming and diverse community. Pirates represent a marginalized community, who have always been discriminated against by both the law and society. And we believe it’s very important to tackle the intersection of anti-piracy with able-ism and legalism.” His statement was met by a standing ovation.
Undercover naval officers, who were present at the meeting, spoke out against the service, but a majority of students present were unanimous in their support. Edward Teach, of the UW Pirate’s Association, gave a rousing speech in defense of the service.
“If you don’t support this service, you’re bigoted,” he said, flourishing his hook menacingly.
The motion was passed unanimously, with students taking to the Bombshelter afterwards to drink and sing shanties, but in a cultural appropriative manner.
