I wonder how much of the “oh, those pathetic college students, wanting to be sheltered” is accurate, and how much of it might just be trickery – like the Samoans who pulled Margaret Mead’s leg about their culture. I’m sure some of it is real – students thinking that they shouldn’t have to hear upsetting things. The college students I recall were a hardier, more obnoxious bunch. Though, “college friends” is certainly an example of a self-selected sample.
At any rate, I’m warning any Columbia students who agree with the Multicultural Affairs Advisory Board to avoid any of my posts on trickster goddesses. Naughty things might be described. Or shown.
