More Stupid Shit That Happened Today

Harvard's house Masters unanimously vote to change their name from "House Masters," because #SafeSpaces.

The masters of Harvard’s 12 undergraduate residential Houses have unanimously “expressed a desire” to change their title--which some students have criticized as associated with slavery--Dean of the College Rakesh Khurana said on Tuesday.

Yes, every use of the word "master" is a reference to slavery, because of course there is no other meaning but that.

I wonder what they'll be renaming their Masters programs?

Another claim of racist threats against black students turns out to be a race hoax perpetrated by a black alum -- because of course it did.

In a minor victory in the war on stupidity, a dean at a Christian college got complaints that his sermon made a student feel bad for not being loving enough, and he tells them to "grow up," and informs them they're at "a university -- not a day care."

It's about time.

Oh, and can conservatives, who are supposed to be rational adults, please stop promoting 13 year old political firebrands as somehow relevant?

Isn't that the cheap shit the progressives resort to?

If I see another conservative website link a 13 year old idiot who "wowed the crowd at CPAC" or whatever, I'll hang myself.

Open thread. I'll be here watching the Flash/Arrow/Hawkman team-up.
