Agree, there has been false equivalencies allowed for way too long, and I blame the "journalists" and talking tv "heads who lack the courage to challenge the "talking points". They dig for one example of a democrat doing what most repubs are guilty of. The goal is to get to the truth.
You know... Gitmo is for enemy combatants. These guys tortured aid workers and journalists. For money. Not to mention the beheadings. It's OK to be hard on the US government for mistakes, but here you're stating false equivalencies.
Anyone who has attended or taught at a community college (or any public university) and who bothered to observe the environment at all, can tell you that the students there have the same struggles, feelings, issues, etc. They just face them with less money.
It's amazing how many readers are happy to relegate all but the 1% to inferior education: "Live at home and go to community college." So much for the "Land of Opportunity."
What needs work is your ability to equate moral equivalencies and outcomes.Not being able to prevent rape due to intoxication is not the same thing as gang raping someone semi-conscious in public while laughing about it and taking videos.
David, just so you know, I teach at a community college and we do read Plato, Descartes, Hume, and Kant.
I sympathize with you but you posted a lot of false equivalencies. Surely you can't be surprised that people would call you out on them.
As a current Wellesley student, I'd like to emphasize that expanding Wellesley's definition to include trans-students is not something we all desire. Wellesley is a space for women to flourish, be challenged, and share a community. I wish we would stop pretending Wellesley is meant to include everyone, when we are explicitly a women's college for women (gender-selectivity is in our name). A plethora of opportunities exist for men to attend college, and we invite you to make use of those. Please keep Wellesley's traditions and purpose in tact.
