    Surrounding college campuses and events. Occasionally it bleeds over into the real world. If you really want to break the little morons you need to take away their funding. Turn college degrees into something that requires passing standardized testing, encourage remote learning and a drive to lower costs.

    Most of these people actually aren't on college campuses. They're centered around various blogs. Most professors know better than to get involved in such endeavors (because of a risk to their career if nothing else).

    This nonsense begins with gender studies and other nonsensical campus activism. You have a bunch of young people with way too much time on their hands (thank you easy liberal arts degrees and overly generous amount of 'free' money washing around the system) that can quickly be mobilized. Make it so student loans can only be used for tuition (not room and board, not misc expenses simply tuition), make degrees possible through testing and you eliminate the breeding ground for this idiocy.

    That might be how the whole mess started, but it's long moved on from there. Many of the most vocal members clearly have no relevant education. In fact, they attack education as a form of white/cis/ableist privilege. You do occasionally see people who've taken one class in gender studies and decide they're an expert in the field.

    "Occasionally it bleed over into the real world." I mean come on yes there idiocy has gotten into some weird places but the vast majority of people when confronted with it are like 'dude seriously? what is wrong with you?' The crazy left gets most of their air time because we on the right like to make fun of them.

    The NOT so crazy left are the real problem. The ones who push government control persuasively. Not the screeching fat positive 92 gender people.

    Hilarious you say this, but look at the google thread.

    Lewk, the easily offended are insinuating themselves everywhere and into positions of (modest) power. GamerGate thought they won, but really the SJW's moved too greener pastures.

    It's a circular firing squad because these kind of students tend to major in the kind of departments where this line of thinking dominates. The children cannibalize their parents.

    I feel bad for the professor, who seems like a nice guy who was doing his best.

    Nothing really wrong about outing undocumented immigrants. As far as the transgender item are you referring to Justine Kramer?

    All right, look, you disgusting little trollette--I'm going to stop you right there before you waste both our time cobbling together some slimy reddit-sourced defense that would make Martin Shkreli blush. If your moral and ethical standards are such that you see "nothing really wrong" with doing things that expose good people to abuse, harassment, and potentially even to physical harm, then it's almost certain that nothing of value can be gained from engaging you in a discussion about right and wrong.

    I'm just pointing out the fact that 'outing' someone typically involves a person who people didn't know was already trans...

    We're losing empathy and gaining stupidity.

    Then again, Hillary Clinton is the first presidential candidate I'm aware of whose platform called for re-writing the First Amendment. I'm not saying this in a "she started it" manner, but just to represent how high-up the rot can go.
