Canon Fire

It is your right to be a shrinking violet. It is not your right to wilt the rest of the flowerbed.

Disrupting others' exploration of the Western canon to soothe your tender brow was, in another time, another place considered rude and boorish. No longer.

Colleges were once separated by gender and by race. Mandatory segregation is barbaric. Mandatory integration is an improvement, but an imperfect one. Students wishing to study the classic canon without being molested by the Valkyries of feelz deserve their own safe space.

Do you have suggestions on where we could find more examples of this phenomenon?
