* puts gun in mouth and blows brains out*

Why Timmy!!! Why!!? You had so much to live for!

Dammit Jim it was too late for him, he knew exactly what he was getting into.

Am I good enough for university in the creative autistic writing grand master ? May I get you another rack of lamb with your tiramisu.

Am I dead yet?

Am I dead yet?

That was my transcript, did you like it, I think it is bold yet brave, and speaks from within, and if you don't hire me I'll scream rape! You misogynistic pig.

#Uni # born this way # you can't judge me because my kid goes to Uni

I bet those classes are top tier edumacation.

Where am I going with this? Why is the sky blue? Why do they have 50% off sales on fruit?

Wake up Sheeple!

This is silly. First your not going to undo years of ingrained language in one semester class, and taking points away because someone wants to use terminology that others "don't like" is ridiculous.

Second this quote is part of what's wrong with everyone " To ‘earn’ the right to that word, Beck must first endure 500 years of racism". Who the hell has endured 500 years of racism? NO ONE that's who because live spans are generally under 100 years. People who are alive today have never experienced slavery, neither has their parents or grandparents, so why do they keep carrying this chip on their shoulders and making it some big deal to their children, instead of moving on, enjoying their freedom and civil liberties and just be an American instead of labeling themselves as something different by calling themselves African-Americans.

I'm sorry people you can't have it both ways, either everyone gets treated the same as humans with no labels, or you keep your labels and acknowledge everyone's differences and culture.

I am Jewish by birth, but I don't go around saying I'm being oppressed and require retribution because my ancestors were slaves a few thousand years ago.

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.


An overbearing, self important university professor? Well, stop the presses! Clearly this is end of democracy in America. >.>

The only one I don't understand is the skin color one. So you're singling out "white" people but then all the other colors are put into their own group, thus making them not seem important... wow. But this happens when I do research papers for psychology too, there's so many rules as those kind of terms can be adjectives or they're offensive, it depends.

Went straight from saying that we're all different and we should be proud to condemning people for pointing out even the slightest difference

So writing down your gender on a form that asks you if your male or female is offensive? All these years I never knew!


You can feel like whatever you want, but at the end of the day their are biological differences that are taken into effect when dealing with health issues which is why it needs to be documented.

Well high school football is already kind of at that point. There are limits in which you can win by for self esteem reasons.
If I have kids I'm going to be blunt with them, nobody is the best at everything and that's OK!

You know you can just move right? Strikes me as a slightly better idea than killing yourself.

It starts with words, then they ban any fiction with "challenging" material, and then they'll ban textbooks.

Did you seriously not tell that was sarcastic?
It's like you're trying to prove that you're smarter than you think you are.
