Back in the 1960s students had lots of very weighty issues to protest about, most notably the potential of getting drafted and sent to Vietnam to get blown up by a mine out on a jungle trail or by incoming mortars fired by Victor Charlie. Nowadays, as this article listing college student protests of 2015 demonstrates, students are scraping the bottom of the barrel to come up with a way to rebel: 10. UC San Diego Students “Free the Nipple”
One organizer told News10 she wanted to, “normalize the female breast.”
Nothing new here folks. Bra burning was already done back in the 1970s. Men did not complain since nipples show up thru the shirt much more distinctly when not shielded by a bra. I say yes to more breast protests.
Oberlin students are reduced to protesting that General Tso's chicken was not serve with culturally authentic sauce. It is like they are competing with The Onion.
Young Muslim jihadists run off to Syria, Iraq, or Libya to fight for the Caliphate. They put their lives on the line a cause they believe in. Contrast that with great PC moments in 2015 on US college campuses.
1. Hating pumpkin-spice lattes was declared sexist.
2. A university language guide stated that the word “American” was “problematic.”
3. A university study declared that we have to accept people who “identify as real vampires.”
Life is too easy in America and the kids have gotten decadent and trivial in their moral outrage. Pumpkin spice lattes? These students are pathetic. Real vampires? Fantasy. Normalizing the female breast: what masculine American male is going to oppose well endowed women walking around topless?
Politically correct college students lack creative talent. They can't come up with a worthy cause. So they dream up caricatures of a worthy cause. Pathetic.
