They’re Becoming More and More Foolish At Universities….

Rutgers students are told they should only speak when ‘necessary’ because otherwise they might offend classmates with ‘microaggressions’

Uh huh….

Students at Rutgers University have been advised to use language that is ‘kind’ and ‘necessary’ and avoid offensive terms such as ‘retarded’ and ‘that’s so ghetto’ so that they don’t commit ‘microaggressions’.  A bulletin board, titled ‘Language Matters: Think’, has been put on display in at least one hall of residence on the campus, in New Brunswick, New Jersey, telling them to question whether their choice of words is ‘true’ and ‘helpful’.    Failure to follow the guidelines could give rise to microaggressions – ‘little things that have a big impact’ – which fall into three categories: microassaults, microinsults and microinvalidations.

Uhmmmm…….  No, you don’t want the precious snowflakes to have to confront life.
