    The one with the green hair probably got triggered when the biologist brought up fat deposits.

    Not new, but the trend to shut down free speech on college campuses is growing.

    Are you kidding?? It sure wasn't like that when/where I went to college and I never heard of anything like that. That was a long time ago, admittedly. Things have changed for the worse.

    This is happening because there are no consequences. Expel anyone who shouts down a speaker or marches out Nazi-calling, and the next week there will be none of this.

    Schools are alllllllllllll going broke, however, so they can't afford to offend their clientele. I don't know the solution to that problem --- but I suspect it's commercial for-profit schools.

    I think the new unpopular idea is that there can be any differences among groups of people. ANY. It's why you see idiots come onto forums and say there is no such thing as race. Well, if there is no such thing as race, why do we talk about it so much? Of course there is, but if you admit blacks are dark-skinned, omigod, what can you rule out as a difference? Perhaps nothing! If you admit women have breasts and men don't, yow, are you actually saying men can't turn into women??? And that would be such a wrong thing to say......

    So anyone who admits there are ANYANYANY differences between anyone at all and anyone else, is just so dangerous. They might start saying that the differences are set in stone: that women can't become an NFL pro-football player or a Navy Seal, or men can't nurse a baby. (Yuck!)

    These kids want the world to be infinitely flexible and no doors at all shut for anyone. This is silly, and they won't get it, but I think that's the idea that is going on, and why they walked out. Say men are taller than women, my god, what ELSE might you say? The horror.

    When I went to uni, we had crazies on the far right and the far left.

    Not many, but they were there and at times acted stupidly.

    Toss them out of class and threaten to run em off campus.

    They eventually come down.

    In this climate, suggest something like men are taller than women, and to these leftist nuts, you are a misogynist, you are sexist, you want to suppress women.
    People like this need to be laughed right out of the room, and in fact instead of waiting for the moderator to say something, the folks in audience at this event, should have all stood up and challenged these fucks.

    I don't know if there was really much to challenge. The crowd laughed when one person said something about taking offense at the fact that men are taller on average than women, then there was some comment and the "protesters" left. I'm not sure what you think the crowd should have done. :dunno:

    Did anyone else notice that the protesters were anatomically uglier than sin?
