It’s exhausting work, being offended all the time. But is activism actually ruining college kids’ mental health? A report on the emotional state of Brown University student-protesters—who suffer from suicidal thoughts, sleeplessness, panic attacks, and failing grades as a result of their advocacy—paints a weirdly alarming picture.
Brown University’s inattentiveness to students’ demands for greater diversity is slowly killing them, according to The Brown Daily Herald:
“There are people breaking down, dropping out of classes and failing classes because of the activism work they are taking on,” said David, an undergraduate whose name has been changed to preserve anonymity. Throughout the year, he has worked to confront issues of racism and diversity on campus.
His role as a student activist has taken a toll on his mental, physical and emotional health. “My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now. (Counseling and Psychological Services) counselors called me. I had deans calling me to make sure I was okay,” he said.
As students rallied to protest two racist columns published by The Herald and the alleged assault of a Latinx student from Dartmouth by a Department of Public Safety officer, David spent numerous hours organizing demonstrations with fellow activists. Meanwhile, he struggled to balance his classes, job and social life with the activism to which he feels so dedicated. Stressors and triggers flooded his life constantly, he said.”
Boo. Fucking. Hoo.
“Latinx” by the way, is a new SJW term designating the ‘gender neutral’ status of a Latino/Latina.
College campuses have turned into a petri dish of bat-shit crazy dysfunction.
The current rampage of black thug activists (‘Black Lives Matter) and white liberal spoiled brats is a culmination of years of leftwing indoctrination poured into the malleable skulls of college students. Most of them have never been independent or self-reliant. Their world centers around sophomoric narratives and SJW drivel. “Safe spaces” from “microaggression” have become the norm. Just wait until these little snowflakes graduate, get out into the real world, and find out that no employer in their right mind will cater to their wild-assed fantasies.
If they’re that traumatized by their own obsession with “activism”, get the hell out of college. Their parents’ money or the scholarship as it were, is going to waste.
If these little cupcakes are the future of America, I’m afraid for this country.
