So after the election I heard a lot of people say that they didn't vote because they didnt want neither of the candidates, or that they wrote in Bernie Sannders or voted 3rd party. And that's fine, everyone is allowed to vote however and for whomever they want. What I wanted to get off my chest (and maybe begin a discussion) is that many of those people don't realize their privilage. They very consciously decided not to vote for the only other realistic option, Hillary. Privileged because most of those who would be drastically and directly be affected by what Trump was promising to do would not risk voting for anyone but Hillary. Yes, we all wish it handnt been between them two but not voting for her meant you weren't giving Trump your vote, but you shorted a vote from the only other optipn. I share many ideals with many of the people I've talked to who marked 3rd party, but they made that decision by weighting their options, and to them, they're options/circumstances allowed them to decide that, for others however, where their family, them personally, could be targeted by what they look like, their religion, deported etc many didn't have the luxury to make 3rd party or write something in just so they're could feel good inside and live with not voting for neither Trump nor Hillary. Just throwing it out there if your one of those people and want to start sympathizing with groups that are being directly affected by what's going on, I wouldn't recommend sharing your vote even if they ask. Because thousands like you could have made the difference. #AnyoneOverVoldemort #TheyMightHaveGoneGolfingLess

It's weird sitting across a table from my history professor, listening to him absolutely shredding my paper and just thinking "I could powerbomb your scrawny ass through this desk and make myself the alpha male of the history department."

I'm thinking about taking a big ole stinky shit in my pants while sitting at graduation. Any thoughts on that?
Admin- Well, I guess that takes "going out with a bang" to a whole new level

Watching all these YouTube videos on student debt is kind of comical. "I didn't know I would one day have to pay for my $100,000 degree in basket weaving"?????? ie. all liberal arts degrees at UNCO

I'm a white guy and it kind of disgusts me how so many on this page are turning a blind eye to when POC share experiences of how they are discriminated against. So much fragility. Yes, you can tell if someone is an asshole just by observing their body language and reading their subtle emotional reactions. Yes, it is fucked up that someone thinks that alllivesmatter should replace blacklives matter. Saying that liberals have gone "too far" and that they are intolerant is missing the point that social justice is about not tolerating ignorance or intolerance. So if you don't try to change quickly, you DO deserve to be treated like trash. If you've ever said "alllivesmatter", "liberals have gone too far". "Damn social justice warriors", and "people are just looking to be victimized", you are missing the point and all of this pushback from the left that many are experiencing is just a small taste of the lifetime of oppression that lots of women and minorities face every day of their lives. I'm also anticipating that I'll be called a "guilty liberal, white knight, cuck" etc in the comments, which says more about you and where you stand morally than it does me. Have a nice day.

I have to conclude that anyone outraged at "social justice warriors" MUST be morally compromised in some way, because why else would you get mad at a movement that is all about making the world a more ethical/moral place?

I'm tired of being treated as trash because of something I can't control. I didn't CHOOSE to learn racism when I was four or five years old. And unlearning it is a monumental challenge for me because of how long it has been a part of me. But I'm not treated as a person worth loving who is trying to change for their sake and the sake of those around them. I'm treated as trash who has ulterior motives and is pretending to be liberal. I don't WANT to be a trashy racist, but changing is HARD. I have to re-wire every thought and emotion I've had for most of my life. Do you realize how hard that is? You NEVER feel comfortable. I am prepared to never feel comfortable again because I don;t want to hurt anyone's feelings, but it is not easy. It would be nice to know what sympathy feels like now and then.
