Now, I don’t know how to categorise this…brings up so many questions…not just for me, I believe.
When I was young, I grew up in the late 90s, we used to cringe if parents, School, Uni try to make us follow rules. What went wrong in the matter of 20 years? How did everyone turn to such frail fairies?!
To be honest, it is an American thing…thankfully not that much in Europe, England, New Zealand, and definitely not in China or India. (Pro-Tip…if you go and cry in India because your fee-fees are hurt, goodluck…you just killed your chances to be ever taken seriously, until you essentially move to a different job, timezone, postal code, and hope no one from your past life finds out. Yes, it is a tough country for overly sensitive people.)
The thing is, sensitivity is subjective. Ethics are mutating. Rules are never good, as they can be misused, and ever increasing. Banning is never an option, safe spaces make people perpetually weak, echo chambers just reinforce the same views, and make a student completely unprepared for real world, which is brutal.
Here’s something personal.
