Safe zone, microaggression, offensiveness, etc. plague goes on, 'Try not to have an offensive Thanksgiving'


Great article by Frank Cerebino from the Dallas morning news.   It's worth reading. One quote below.
"Try not to have an offensive Thanksgiving.
It won’t be easy. These holidays are often trickier than they seem, and we’re already off to a particularly offensive holiday season.
It started early this year with Halloween. And as Yale University has shown, there’s no limit to the trouble that can be caused by an insensitive Halloween costume.
“Could someone take offense to your costume and why?” an email from the university’s Intercultural Affairs Committee asked students.
Dressing up in a way that might offend somebody isn’t a crime, faculty member Erika Christakis responded.
“Even if we could agree on how to avoid offense — and I’ll note that no one around campus seems overly concerned about the offense taken by religiously conservative folks to skin-revealing costumes — I wonder, and I am not trying to be provocative: Is there no room anymore for a child or young person to be a little bit obnoxious ... a little bit inappropriate or provocative or, yes, offensive?” Christakis wrote.
Apparently not. At least at Yale. The flap over Halloween costumes there is expected to last until Valentine’s Day."

One important point to stress. As Christakis notes.  It's only offensive if it offends left-wing political correctness.  Appaprently conservatives are not entitled to the same protection.  This hysteria threatens First Amendment values.

  6. i got this offer from local university to study law. i've always wanted to study law. but, the thing is, i used to be a science student. i realized it just not my thing, n i really wanted to be a lawyer. when my family know about the offer, the just shocked and seem disappointed. they said that lawyer is a risky job. you sometimes need to represent clients although you knew he's a bad guy. they said it just the same as being the bad guy. is it true? i mean, can't you just reject the case since you knew he's bad?

    1. Thanks to all for the positive comments,
      Jim:
      Unless you have political or personal connections (father has a firm) or are a hard-working, patient genius, who can pay for it without loans, I would not recommend law school. Too many under- and un-employed law school graduates.
