The liberal propaganda has gone too far
Listen, I’m all for being politically correct, but I think there’s a point where it becomes a bit over the top and starts to get ridiculous. So I’m a high school teacher and over the Mardi Gras holiday I assigned an opinion essay for my class. Anyway, this one kid, who would be considered an SJW snowflake on here, writes an essay about how madden ultimate team offends him and how the video game should be banned because it promotes the selling of human beings. He argued that putting prices on different player cards is just an animated version of slavery, objectification, and makes it seem as though the players are property. Needless to say, I gave him a C- for his horrid use of textual evidence to support his claim and his poorly formulated argument. I just can’t believe people get offended by crap like this! Seriously, it’s a damn game!

ETA: thinking back on it, he actually does make a decent point, I just think that he’s taking it to an extreme. I gave him that grade not because of the topic, but because of his lack of following the guidelines on the rubric.

You sound like a real dick. I think he made a pretty decent point.

I understand what he’s saying but, seriously? It’s just madden. That’s clearly not the intention of the game.

re: The liberal propaganda has gone too far
So you disagree with his opinion so he gets a C-?

Why not grade him on the merits of his argument?

I said I understand his opinion, I gave him a C- because he completely disregarded my directions on how to write the paper. This was his topic sentence: “Madden represents the common American Motif for the upper class to enslave and imprison both people of color and of Caucasian decent to aggrandize their own economic state.”

So, if you don't suck up to the teacher and talk points the teacher likes, you get a bad grade.
Thanks for letting your objectivity get pushed aside.

High probability that the boy is not the product of an intact nuclear family.

But if so, the dad sounds like he could be Joe Alleva.

Why is it the conservatives on this site make conservatism sound like the douchebag approach to politics?

Did he follow proper TEAT format? I remember Teat in my english class junior year and that writing tip paved the road for the rest of the papers I wrote. Best tip imo.

Why does everyone hate on the conservatives on here until I make a thread and then suddenly I’m the douche bag?

re: The liberal propaganda has gone too far
Did it ever occur to you that maybe he really isn't that offended, but it was a topic that he was familiar with (Madden) and he could write the paper and make an argument? I would write papers and take a stance that I may not necessarily agree with but could come up with a strong or at least believable argument that may not have been considered by others? C- is harsh unless his paper was written poorly. To me, and I'm no English teacher, the paper should be graded on the merits of his writing and not whether you agree with what he is saying.
