Trigger Warnings, Pronouns, & Safe Spaces: Episode 7

October 24, 2016

Today we talk about the culture of political correctness that has grown to a ridiculous level in our nation. Has the expectation for trigger warnings become out of control? Should students be warned about potentially controversial topics and be encouraged to go to their “safe space” if they do not agree?

This year the University of Chicago sent a letter to their incoming freshman proclaiming their lack of support for “so-called trigger warnings” and encouraging students to engage with ideas that might be different from their own. Mark shares how he deals with controversial issues in his own college classroom, and Shawn shares a story about a favorite professor that loved to argue with his students (especially the Christians).

We close with some Biblical encouragement – “to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.” (Tit. 3:2)
