Professor to students: Drop class immediately if you’re ‘triggered’ by opinions that offend you

Via Billy

Please drop the class immediately if you feel entitled to censor the thoughts or words of others or insist they tailor their language or attitudes to your preferences.

A professor of English at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, fed up with the push to protect college students from ideas they don’t like or disagree with, has decided to take matters into his own hands, at least where his classroom is concerned.

Professor Duke Pesta has his students sign a contract at the beginning of class that asks them to “please drop the class immediately” if they are “triggered” by ideas that offend them.


  1. I've heard the term "Wild fire" is being dropped because it raises Millennial anxiety levels especially in California. To be replaced with: "Thermal Event". Ah, that lowers the stress level, alright.
