This is Hysterical and Heartbreaking: Feelzsplaining and The Constitutional Right to Triggerdom

Via Instapundit. 

I laughed out loud. 

It's all about Teh Feelzz, 24/7 for infinity and beyond:

"No, there is no constitutional right to feel safe in the classroom.  It is not the bottom line, top line or any line. It doesn’t exist. Some dumbass on the internet decided to call her preferred feelz a constitutional right, and some website named Vice is too short on editors and grown-ups to tell her that she can’t just make shit like this up."
"But this otherwise empty intellectual sinkhole of a post reflects a subtle shift in the rhetoric of feelz."

And I'm in love with this part:

"No, accusers are not entitled to due process, just like the accused. That’s not what due process is for, not how due process works. While creating the appearance of fairness, a word that inherently appeals to most people, it is not an equivalent situation. One points the finger and the other suffers punishment for it.  They are not equivalent positions, and there is nothing “fair” about it. Nor should there be."

"No, free speech does not end when it touches something that offends you, and you have no equivalent right to silence those who are insensitive to your feelings."

"No, you have no right to feel safe.  You have no constitutional right. You have no moral right. You have no right at all.  You have a right not to be physically harmed, but your feelings, just like everyone else’s, are fair game for bruising.  No one says you have to suffer in silence."

"Don’t like how your Columbia professor uses classic literature that “triggers” your unsafe feelz? Go to Dartmouth. Don’t like how other people on the internets call you stupid? Don’t be stupid. Or turn off the computer. Or only click on links to cute kitteh pics.

"Or just toughen up already, you special little snowflakes."
