A year in review of crazy
A lot of things happened in 2017 including a lot of being offended.
It was hard to narrow it down, but here in no particular order are the eleven most politically correct moments of 2017:
1. It was declared cultural appropriation for a white woman to wear hoop earrings.
A resident assistant at Pitzer College sent out a campus-wide email declaring that it was unacceptable for white girls to wear hoop earrings because wearing them was culturally offensive to the black and brown bodies who typically wear hooped earrings.
This did not stop me from continuing to wear hoop earrings. Why? Well, for one thing, I understand that humanity has been around for so long that theres really no such thing as an original idea anymore, anyway. Everything goes back to someone elses idea including hoop earrings, which were initially worn by people in ancient cultures. For another thing, I recognize that bombarding an entire campus with your feelings on jewelry is completely bananas, and a hoop earring is literally just a piece of metal twisted into a circle. No one owns circles, kids certainly not you.
2. Berkeley students claimed they did not have enough privilege to take their exam in class.

Is it appropriation if non-people of color are on public assistance?
I’m going to make a prediction. In 20 years (maybe less) these “ridiculously PC moments” won’t raise an eyebrow.
Because they will all be generally accepted behaviors.
Okay, but the United States is NOT one of those cultures.
In all seriousness, I would like to hear someone try to explain how math has been used to oppress people. I bet it would be hilarious.
Microagression Alert!!!!!! Microagression Alert!!!!!!
That term should be "people of non-color". How insensitive of you. /s
Well, here’s one for 2018. The Wall Street Journal has an article today about professors at the University of Northern Iowa asserting that civility on campus must be stamped out, as it is “whiteness-informed civility” and reinforces “white racial power.”
8. A British student union tried to ban clapping and cheering because it was not inclusive to deaf people.
More likely, they'll be law!
No wonder why these people end up living at home until they’re 30. How do they function in the corporate world, where you actually have to show up on time and perform?

Well, Ma and Pa Kettle did use math to drive some poor guy crazy.
The epitome of absurdity.
Higher education in the US is an effing joke with a crappy punchline.
“A Seattle councilman expressed concern that hosing down some filthy sidewalks that smelled of excrement might be insensitive because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.”
4 out of 5 black inferiorists would agree!
Yes it was. Report to the nearest convenient reeducation camp immediately!
LOL! Calvin and Hobbes were the best.
And snowflakes are going into debt to pay for this nonsense.
These people need to be very careful what they ask for. My “whiteness-informed civility” is the only thing keeping me from going full-Road-Warrior on their ivory-towered a$$es..
