finally, someone who is able to explain how people with their “special snowflake status” are ruining both our higher education system and the ability to communicate as a society or social group. everyone immediately gets offended, refuses to even entertain the other side’s points, and now teachers and professors (liberal ones! open minded ones! the ones who, when i was in school, were my favourite teachers and broadened my mind the most) are backed into a corner of all discussion having to be neutral or just nonexistent.
i judge equally. my snarky bitch attitude knows no discrimination based on gender, colour, orientation, political party, whatever the hell it is you choose to identify as. as a group, human beings- no matter what the fuck they want to call themselves- are just plain awful.
“How many complaints will it take before chairs and administrators begin to worry that I’m not giving our customers — er, students, pardon me — the positive experience they’re paying for? Ten? Half a dozen? Two or three?”
listen up idiots, college isn’t supposed to be sweet and soft and easy. college is preparing you for real life, and putting down padding in our books (Mark Twain being seen as offensive rather than as the founder of modern American literature? are you fucking serious?) and lesson plans is just putting padding down into your brain. you shouldn’t stand for someone to preach against your beliefs, but if you are paying a school to let you earn a degree then you better buck the fuck up and learn what these well educated professors are trying to teach you: how to be an open minded thinker.
