Parental Guidance Requested
College students want warning labels on literature.Reading can be dangerous, some young people seem to believe.
But, really? Kids are afraid of triggers related to the points above in literature but don't mind watching Miley Cyrus or some of the music videos that we know are out there? Or how about the many really violent films full of gratuitous and sometimes violent sex and murder, too? Is it only in the classics in literature they're offended?
What do you think.... How can we have a strong country with kids who need TRIGGERS in literature? This is not that widespread, I'm sure, but add this to incidents like not allowing pictures to be taken with camels on HUMP DAY (Wednesday) because it might insult muslims, etc etc.........(by the way, why would it be considered RACIST against Arabs? Why not interpret it as celebrating Arabs with camels? :-)......are we REAL anymore?
