Political Correctness thread

I created this PC thread for examples and discussion of PC as opposed to straight political discussions found in the Politics thread.

Tonight I found this one and cannot believe the student reactions. I am 47 years old and feel like I am having the reactions 80 year olds had back when I was in college at the start of PC in the 1980's.

Pitt Students 'In Tears' and Feeling 'Unsafe' After Milo Yiannopoulos Event - Breitbart


Quote:
The University of Pittsburgh’s Student Government Board held a public meeting on Tuesday to discuss the traumatizing visit the night before from “dangerous” homosexual and Breitbart Tech Editor Milo Yiannopoulos, during which students described themselves as feeling “hurt” and “unsafe.”

“During his talk, Yiannopoulos called students who believe in a gender wage gap ‘idiots,’ declared the Black Lives Matter movement a ‘supremacy’ group, while feminists are ‘man-haters,’” according to the student paper The Pitt News, prompting a handful of twenty-something-year olds to feel upset.

“Just because we have to be neutral with our funding doesn’t mean we’re personally neutral,” announced board member Jack Heidecker at the meeting. “I hurt yesterday, too.”

“So many of us shared in our pain. I felt I was in danger, and I felt so many people in that room were in danger,” proclaimed Marcus Robinson, student and president of the Pittsburgh Rainbow Alliance. Robinson also suggested that councilors should have been provided in another room to protect students who felt “traumatized” by Yiannopoulos’s opinions.

“This is more than hurt feelings, this is about real violence. We know that the violence against marginalized groups happens every day in this country,” claimed social work and urban studies major Claire Matway. “That so many people walked out of that [event] feeling in literal physical danger is not alright.”
Quote:
The reactions of students over a non-compulsory and extracurricular event featuring a gay journalist expressing a difference of opinion are a worrying sign that academia is failing. These are students who are legal adults and on the cusp of entering the real world, yet they’re in tears over the fact that someone, who they need not even listen to, disagreed with them.

University is no longer a place for new ideas, discussion, and intellectual debate. It is a place of safe spaces, no platforming, and trigger warnings. Students are taught to believe and agree with a single narrative and doctrine, turning them into narrow-minded and unchallenged pawns, with any form of resistance or difference of thought being classified as hate speech.

Pittsburgh may be the steel city, but it appears its students are made of softer stuff.

Milo is coming to ND in a couple weeks, and I'm looking forward to it. I don't agree with him exactly politically, but I love how upset he makes liberals

Yeah, similar crap has happened with him at other schools. It's an embarrassment how soft minded some college liberals are... instead of trying to factually combat ideas they disagree with the default response is to feign "trauma" and curl up into a little ball playing the "victim."

I lean left on most issues, but I cannot stand this crop of losers who have no mental toughness... and I also can't stand the academics that enable them.

I wonder if some people have ever stopped to consider that maybe they are marginalized not because of their sexual orientation, or their skin color, or their religion, or their politics......... but because they cringe in fear from some nebulous "bogeyman" hiding around every corner, and society just doesn't have time to hold their hand, or dry their tears, every minute of every single day?

The wild part is they complain about violence against marginalized groups while fearing a gay republican. You gotta figure a gay republican is a kinda small group too, eh?
