Trigger Warnings Are For Sad, Little Babies Who Can't Handle Life

That's pretty much it.

I don't know why it would be seeming to be a screeching little thin-skinned non-contributor who hates dad more than his or herself but in this day and age when being is better than doing, it is.

How far we've fallen.

These poseurs aren't even being original. It's been done before.

It makes one wonder what academics view as the reason for education. How does a person develop a rounded understanding of the world as it exists if he or she is to be sheltered from awareness of any views that person doesn’t already hold? How do you learn the world’s 7.4 billion people embody many differences if you’re too afraid to confront anything different?

It is the educational equivalent of parents who so obsessively shield their children from germs that they fail to develop the ability to resist disease. Academics who isolate students from learning are the equal of anti-vaxxers who refuse to inoculate a child against measles, leaving the child more vulnerable to the actual disease.
