When a “diversity advocate” writes that it’s not the fault of whiny and spoiled college students running to their safe spaces because they can’t handle reality, but it’s really the fault of “bigotry”, you know this is going to be good. By “good,” I mean “train wreck that you don’t want to see, but can’t look away.” Or like that spider you stomped and you want to make sure it’s super dead, so you peep it from a far. Yeah, it’s okay to kill spiders if they’re in your house. They invaded your safe space. Also, they murder people. Spiders. Murder. People.
Sorry, here’s the actual news story from WashingtonPost. No spiders mentioned:
Whether one is suspicious of the merits of college as a whole or cynical about the existence of ‘safe spaces,’ the truth of the matter is that ‘coddled’ college students aren’t the problem. The real culprits — on campuses and in the real world — are the persistent effects of homophobia, income inequality, misogyny, poverty, racism, sexism, white supremacy and xenophobia.
The real world is full of anti-Semitism, homophobia, sexism and racism. The question is: Do we prepare students to accept the world as it is, or do we prepare them to change it?
When students refuse to accept discrimination on college campuses, they’re learning important lessons about how to fight it everywhere.
Let’s just state for the record that actual bigots are giant turdnuggets. No one is arguing that. Okay? Okay.
But whatever happened to the sing-songy adage of “sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me”? There used to be this radical idea that each individual was responsible for his or her feelings. Which, if you think about it, is pretty freaking empowering. Only you can decide if someone else’s words are going to bother you. Only you have the power to get upset or not upset over a jerkface who said mean things. Only you can decide how you react to chalk writing about Trump at Emory University. Only you can make a giant turdbomb out of your own self. #Empowering
Yet we’re in a time where professional victims see more value in starting marches over mean-but-not-meant-to-be-mean words, rather than just, I don’t know, acting like an adult. Professors like this are missing a huge irony. These SJW students are giving power to the very people they claim to be fighting against. By seeking out safe spaces whenever someone says something these students don’t like, guess who gets all the power? Hint: it’s not the babies with their security blankets.
Now look at some of our college posts and some of our PC Culture posts. The problem isn’t bigotry. The problem is whiny and spoiled college students not knowing the difference between actual hatred and someone who simply has a different opinion than them. Also, if someone actually hates you? Big freaking deal. Sometimes people don’t like you. Sometimes, you even have to deal with these people at the office, at the gym, or at the family dinner table. It’s called “being an adult.”
… no wonder these kids want to do away with the First Amendment. Watch below and be amazed…
