sounds like a college kid or there abouts

she'll do better once she has a few years of actual adult life under her belt

It's much more likely that she'll double down instead. People stupid and cowardly enough to adopt that mindset in the first place rarely come to their senses at a later point.

I wouldn't be so dismissive... Especially if the person referenced actually is relatively young. Someone who cares enough to take a stand on an issue is more likely to encounter opposite viewpoints than someone who is totally apathetic.

The statement reflects a naive, not to mention dangerous and selfdestructive, worldview. Those who have studied history, read books meant to warn humanity of the dangers of censorship and authoritarianism, etc. are aware that dissent, free speech, disagreement, are the first things to go when someone tries to take power from the people. I'm 100% against discriminating based on right or left politics, however I am 100% for discriminating based on "up or down" politics, e.g. the libertarian/authoritarian axis. It's an issue of self-defense. Fortunately we here at Voat are not forced to tolerate their intolerance.

because reality doesn't give a shit about your protected agenda. Reality is cold, harsh and calculating. Reality is not politically correct, in fact it's the farthest thing from it.

Well, I suppose you need to justify spending $50k on a women's studies diploma. Could be this is a platform to put on a résumé and to spring-board into being a professional privilege checker.
