I present two more reasons to consider college,

outside a a few fields, to be a waste of time and money.  Unless you want your kid turned into a whiny, screaming bitch.
In an email obtained by Campus Reform, a university employee with the school’s student housing department writes to a resident advisor, who wishes to remain anonymous, to explain to him that he cannot use an image of a gorilla for a routine floor decoration.

“I think it would be best if your floor chose a different theme animal to be more inclusive,” Assistant Complex Director Dale Morrow wrote in an email at the start of this academic year. “First, gorillas represent a very masculine image, and I feel that this would not be inclusive to all of our residents on that floor.”
“Second, this animal could be triggering to some people as their [sic] are stereotypes that surround this animal,” he continued, noting that all the RA would need to change “is the picture and the words.”

And from Wisconsin,
A University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student had a serious complaint for his campus’ official “Hate Response Team”: he was “very upset” by a Harry Potter mural in a college dorm.

The depiction of this metamorphosis “represents our ideal society and everything I am trying to fight against,” wrote the offended student, whose name is redacted. “It represents white power. Man power. Cis power. Able power. Class power. ECT [sic] ect. I am angry that I know the people who put this mural up, and I am anger [sic] because I know the people who let this mural be put up. Like I said earlier, maybe I am being a little sensitive, but it is how I feel. This represents, to me, our society, and I do not want it up on this wall. Why do we need a BEFORE and AFTER?”
Why do we need a oversensitive whiny pussy screaming over a bloody Harry Potter character mural?

Oh look there's an 800 pound gorilla in the room . That it is no more than an image is irrelevant my fears trump your joy. The whine of the overindulged is strong with this generation. There is some hope this year sees the start of an engineer and a veterinarian both women, some kids learn reality.

"[m]aybe I am being a little sensitive, but it is how I feel. This represents, to me, our society, and I do not want it up on this wall."
It's how I FEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeelllll! Honor my feelings by capitulating to them. This is my last chance before I have to go out in the cold, hard, cruel world.

So he does not want a representation of the society to which he belongs up on the wall where he might walk by and see it. What, is there only one way around the campus?
