Students Feel Unsafe!

I know that this is by now about as blogworthy as a squirrel running across a yard, but at the University of Pittsburgh, a lot of students (and some administrators) are whining about how a talk by Milo Yiannopoulos made them feel unsafe.  One student declared that they felt “a literal sense of danger.” Read about it in this Breitbart piece.

College students used to at least sometimes try to make counter-arguments after hearing someone present ideas different from theirs. Now they mostly race to cry about how they feel so offended and scared. Take this as further evidence for the proposition that college no longer helps young Americans mature, but instead prolongs adolescence.
