At least the school came down on her, it looks like. It's just too bad that people don't seem to realize that the end result of this kind of thing is the deaths of thousands or millions of people.

We are a doomed civilization. The planet is on it's final orbit around the toilet bowl before it is flushed away forever. Thank god I already had my fun, now I can just kick back and enjoy the show.

Personally, I would stay the hell away from any class that pulls this shit, and even whole colleges (if it's prevalent across the board). I don't care what "good intentions" they think they have; this is the indoctrination so many, dare I say it, "SJWs" claim to be standing against, yet are pushing for. Horseshoe theory at it's finest.

More PC totalitarianism. Watch what you say! Don't voice your opinion! Free speech is a myth in this country.

Ironically, suppressing people in this fashion implies there is something wrong with being a coloured person, a male, female, etc. It seems more sexist/racist/etc. to me this way.

Context time:

From the syllibus of a single class:

“Use of racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, classist, or generally offensive language in class or submission of such material will not be tolerated,” professor Selena Lester Breikss’s syllabus read. “This includes ‘The Man,’ ‘Colored People,’ ‘Illegals/Illegal Aliens,’ ‘Tranny’ and so on — or referring to women/men as females or males.”


The really ugly part starts here:

“If I see it or hear it, I will correct it in class since it can be a learning moment for many students,” Breikss wrote. “Repeated use of oppressive and hateful language will be handled accordingly — including but not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and — in extreme cases — failure for the semester.”


So no, the university is not banning anything. It's a single professor with stupidly aggressive methods for pushing their views of things, that possibly exceeds the campus policies.

*Oh, and it's an article from last year.

Thanks to the teacher's union, idiots like this can't be fired, so they sit there and indoctrinate kids with their idiotic views.

edit: Oh, and the year of the article rally doesn't matter... you can find one like it every September from the 1960's on I bet.

A quick search it seems that about the only result of this particular tempest in a teapot was the professor receiving some hatemail. Looks like she's still teaching at WSU.

edit: Dredging up old articles just means it's a slow day in the internet outrage machine.
