Yeah, this is a GREAT idea for a university

The University of Northern Colorado (UNCO) has decided it’s time to prohibit "Bias Motivated Incidents." When you hear about a “bias motivated incident,” maybe you’re thinking about a cross burning, or something of that nature. But at UNCO the “bias motivated incident” could simply be an "inappropriate joke" that is motivated by some form of bias.

The UNCO policy also says that “Any discriminatory act is a violation of the Housing & Residence Life Student Code of Conduct.” Well, what do they mean by “any discriminatory act”? According to the UNCO handbook this includes, but is not limited to, “racism, ageism, sexism, and/or homophobia.” And (get ready for this!) included in the definition is “intentionally, recklessly or negligently causing physical, emotional, or mental harm to any person.”
Got that? All anybody has to do to shut you up and get you in trouble is be ''emotionally harmed' by something you say. Or you 'disturb their mental peace' or some other idiot complaint.

Just freakin' wonderful. And the clowns consider this part of 'higher' education.

If I wasn't deeply in love with my wife, I might head to UNCO and enroll.

Since I can't and don't want to take advantage of the Politically Correct garbage, here is an idea for those older folks who can.

Enroll in classes, pick out a young hottie of the proper orientation/gender for you.

Attempt to pick up said young hottie and then claim ageism if they don't sleep with you.

Discuss filing a complaint unless the situation is remedied.

Of course the ethics of it may be a little wonky but hey, it's their code they are willing to live by, right?
