    That is the exact type of mindset that makes us the biggest collection of self centered, thin skinned lemmings in the history of mankind.

    Everyone is so sensitive (just breaks my heart), everyone's offended, everyone thinks they are the king or queen of England when they walk into a retail store to be waited on. I am suprised they do not have jobs to roll out a red carpet every time someone walks into the door.

    That is why I would last about thirty minutes as a waiter. The first time someone said, "you did not fill up my drink quick enough" I would proceed to get the pitcher and dump it over their heads.

    You are nothing today or less you can picture yourself as a victim. With that in mind is where we come up with these way out deals.

    UNC Chapel Hill is a very large campus in a very liberal area of North Carolina so the news does not surprise me at all. As a college teacher myself I did an unscientific survey of first and second year college students about this issue and none of them (male or female) found the term "freshman" or "freshmen" to be offensive in anyway. Let's keep in mind, however, that the policy only refers to official university documents and departments. It has nothing to do with individual students.

    Is wussification a word? Because that's the level political correctness is at in the U.S. if this becomes the norm.
