    The question should be when did "not being an a$$hole" equate to "moral failing", and when did "political correctness" gain negative connotations.

    This is only going to get worse.

    I call them cowards. If something needs to be said you say it. Don't go on the internet whining to people that your opinion isn't respectable and should be. You say what needs to be said, work to fix a problem, and accept the consequences. Society is under no obligation to humor your opinion.

    I'm not sure where you work or where you grew up. However, thins aren't the same as they were even ten years ago. This isn't about internet whining, its about safe spaces, hurt feelings, and ppl being shut down because of their ideas don't go with someone elses.

    again, this isn't about being a coward. its about being punished for having a point of view. When a university professor can punish students because they don't go along with the HIS/HER opinions/narrative/agenda we have a fukking problem.

    When governments can set policy to MAKE you do something you don't believe in we have a fukking problem, whether you agreew ith it or not.

    Universitys have HR departments that you can talk to if professors are being unprofessional. I have seen multiple students threaten legal action for their grades over perceived discrimination of thier beliefs.

    People literally have the right to say what they want. Most of the time they are just to cowardly to say it in public due to social stigma.

    The federal government is a entirely different conversation though.

    the problem Is when HR or the universities themselves fall in line with that same thinking.

    How is that a problem. They disagree with you. People disagree all the time. Like I said earlier having the right to free speech doesn't mean others are under the obligation to listen.

    A teacher punished over evolution? | NCSE

    :usure:

    What about punishing professors because they don't go along with the students opinions/narrative/agenda?:patrice:
    Is this political correctness run amok as well?:jbhmm:

    "believe" is kind of loaded in this context, but any examples of this?

    The problem with the PC and anti-PC brigades is that at the extremes they are a bunch of people who can't deal with the fact that the truth is complicated.

    The truth is not wholly politically correct

    The truth is not wholly politically incorrect

    It has a bit of both as well as blends that can be more or less correct given the context. People who are PC and don't want hurt feelings and the anti-PC who want to give license to their darkest musings tend to not get this...
