My son and I have had many conversations about SJWs (“social justice warriors”) on our college campuses and we share a common point of view: Colleges are where kids go to learn how to live away from home, how to get along with others, how to accept the responsibility for going to class and learning what they’re supposed to be learning — all this to be accomplished in relative safety and security before the final jump-off into the real world. Nobody promised “safe spaces,” “trigger warnings,” or freedom from perceived “microaggressions.” These are precisely the sorts of things college students should be learning to deal with before they graduate into the real world of grown-ups where nobody will have the time or inclination to give them trigger warnings or carefully tiptoe around their delicate, easily bruised sensitivities.
Carrying on the way they do, disrupting their college campuses for themselves and for everyone else on campus who might actually be trying to get an education, is unacceptable. I wouldn’t pay tuition for any “student” who was so disruptive and disinterested in getting an education. And I wouldn’t donate to or support any college or university that put up with such nonsense on their campus.
