LOL. It has to be a satire. The irony of a SJW being offended by such picture is palpable.

One day you may wake up and realize you might be more center-right than you think you are.

Nope. I am an alt-leftist.

They were not offended by the picture, they were offended by the theory of sexual abuse lead to the artist drawing a vaguely trans piece of artwork.

Oh thanks for the clarification. Basically that person was offended by the idea that transgender people are that way because of sexual abuse.

They can find the theory offensive all they want, but they made a huge mental leap to assume that because the professor repeated it, that he thinks all transpeople are transpeople because they were abused. He was repeating a theory about why that particular artist created that particular work, no more, no less.

To get personally offended over that is to take it all way too personally.

Overlooking the sensationalism in this, I agree. The theory has nothing to do with trans folk.

Absolute insanity!
I am older but attending college. We just had several amazing professors resign at the end of last semester- they re getting out and saving themselves.
Will be interesting when NO ONE will teach these F***tards! I guess it will all be government run education systems- Don't forget to get your microchip upon enrollment!

It's called "Pre-Adult" Day care, and we already have places like that. (Looks at Evergreen college in Washington State)

This is how Secret Societies start:
1. First someone wants to learn, but the loud masses find facts so offensive
2. Instructors go about finding jobs that have little to do with their Academic Employment History due to the loud masses
3. Everyone ends up at the book store
4. Meetings are set up with code words to keep out he easily offended
5. A cool name is assigned with rituals to go with entry to weed out crybabies
6. BLAMMO!!! A Secret Society has formed

this is pretty crazy...a professor talks about the ideas of others, and this makes him some sort of anti-trans and rape loving bastard? why would you even be in the class if you did not want to learn about the material in the first place?

Because they are not there to learn. They are not even there to discuss. Aside from medicine and I guess engineering, contemporary tertiary university education is the exact opposite of education and if every one of them disappeared overnight the world would be a far better place.

“When I said the word ‘rape,’ the complaining student yelled, ‘Hey, where’s the trigger warning?’

real life does not come with " trigger warnings "

A quick punch to the lips would be a trigger warning that a bad word is coming.

I wonder how many trigger warnings it would take to desensitize the snowflake to bad words?

Like Pavlov did with his dogs.

Ring his bell a few times.

I have the #ing solution , one birth everyone's birth certificate comes with a disclaimer and terms and conditions for life
where the Trigger warning for ,life is in bold , underscored text , and thats the only one you ever get.
if you are hence forth triggered then its your own damn fault

that says life in general is unsafe and there is no such thing as a safe space, and that this is the only trigger warning you shall receive, if your parents don't agree to the terms and conditions you will be assigned a parenting unit who will explain this for you on behalf of the world.
if they agree to the terms you are therefore in their care and it is their responsibility to prepare you for the world.

seriously trigger warnings ? surely you can figure that # out yourself before reading it , based on its classification and certification !

I cant believe that someone has to hold their hands and tell them as adults they may be offended by life!

Nature is offensive , nature is unsafe , life itself requires some degree of toughness and fortitude to survive , so why are they being so offended by words and ideas , never mind the cold harsh unforgiving existence that is life itself!

These people must have awful lives of daily suffering to allow another persons opinions , ideas or actions control your own emotions , must be so awful , such a miserable existence living in their own ego's suffering away looking for someone else to acknowledge their suffering as being greater than people who suffer physically rather than mentally

I mean the gods forbid they have to get out of bed each morning and dress and eat and goto school to learn , but then dont learn because they have become offended , I mean they must have it tough compared to people who cant get out of bed ,because they have no bed, and dont eat because they cant afford to or dont have access to food, or even have a school to goto because they are either poor or their school was blown up!

and quite frankly until we have sorted the latter group of peoples issues then I wont listen to a group of egotistical self loathing , self indulgent fools .

"a book I read had an offensive word in it , my life is such a hardship"

"the water I drank today was full of toxic chemicals, the food I walked for over 20 miles to obtain was full of mites "

I think I'll be helping the latter group first !

Why is everyone allowing this?

They need a harsh rebuke.

I think people are generally biding their time and waiting to be allowed off the leash.

It sure does. Those kids with two parents working grew up on TV and now raise kids correct?

And no not all parents supported teachers and public schools had plenty of problems in the 80's. Also college campuses have always been home to strife and ideological protest. Look at the 60's for goodness sakes.

I think your "the good old days" rant is completely inaccurate.

Snowflakes used to be just rich kids, then middle class kids started living more like wealthier kids as both parents went to work to have material wealth for their kids, often times far beyond what is necessary. Meaning one of the parents could have stayed home at some point to help direct the rearing of the child rather than through nannies and after school programs that are often a half hearted attempt to keep kids occupied.

This is not a liberal issue. The country is about 50/50 so many of these hysterical liberal kids come from conservative homes.

My wife is a research professor and we have lived near campuses for about 12 years. The stories I have heard are incredible. It's not even just the liberal kids. Just the things kids are doing in general is disgusting. I know the prefrontal cortex is an issue at the age but the lack of decent child rearing from either political point of view is obvious.

I wouldn't worry about the progressive left

They eat their own supporters and after a while lose all credibility.

Where's my trigger warning BRAH

Do you think conservative parents create conservative children? Or do you think generally speaking youth are more idealistic and liberal?

I have kids. I teach youth wrestling, I know lots of hypocritical unconnected conservative parents. I know liberals that make their kids do chores,...and vice versa,....the solution to the problems is to actually debate with civility so you can find if libs are really the monolith the Republican party (and the democratic party) wants them to be. How do you know a young liberal snowflake didn't have ultra conservative parents? You don't.

The problem is a university would even allow such behaviour to be promoted and wouldn't protect the teacher and presenting ideas that may be personally uncomfortable. What's next taking down art at the met?

Good questions, looks like a thread in the making.

Jesus, the meek shall inherit the earth seems to be coming more likely every day.

Trigger warnings????

Perhaps we can ask the terrorists for 'trigger warnings'...

This stupid approach really needs to be stamped out, life offers no such warnings, its cold and brutal. These folk are trying to forge a reality that does not exist, books cannot be auto tuned to meet the reader each time, free speech on theories is a must lest we only talk on selected subjects which would turn us in to the very sheep we joked about.

Someone should have warned them about a scene in a comic book, what f'ing planet are they on but worse still, why did people go along with them?

The man was made to apologise for informing them of a common (to artists) theory, that is his bloody job, to teach.

These ignorant lazy gits make my blood boil, constantly complaining, demanding and causing trouble yet others pay the price. I don't care if you are gay, trans, green, pink or brown, you treat people with the same respect you yourself would expect, you follow the rules of the education system that has worked happily for every one else. The system isn't perfect but these people have no right to affect the education of others over stupid awkward demands that are made just to buck the system.

If you give trouble makers what they want they will not stop...

I think your a fairly independent thinker and you are a breath of fresh air to the true believers of any political party but, it seems to me the issue is not really a liberal one, but just a terrible leadership position of many universities. It's also unreasonable parents of every side who want everything for their kids then complain about the bill, and make these snowflakes. I know lots of deeply religious people who can't debate at all without getting crazy, similar to liberals in this situation. Maybe we should expose the problem but not try and divide the public any more. Plenty of liberals think this situation (op) is stupid.

Well said,

The dean gave credence to the sensitive trans who could not even let the theory of an artist being abused that lead to the painting of a what today would be considered child pornography.
And the Dean did not stop there, the teacher had to be re-educated.

The coddling of a very small percentage of people who are trans is a difficult subject to build a college's rules and regs around. As we can see the mind of some trans folks are based in boogey men of discrimination and shadows of anti trans sediments where there are none.
