After High Schoolers Walk Out Offended, University Adds Trigger Warning to ‘The Fantasticks’

High school students attending a University of Wyoming pre-college summer camp are already engaging in activism, walking out of the theater department’s summer musical because they considered its content deeply offensive and triggering.

The Department of Theater and Dance is performing The Fantasticks, a famed Broadway show that debuted in 1960.

    State schools are an abomination. Q.E.D.

    Intersectionality will destroy itself.
    It has to

      hopefully it will, and the sooner the better

      They will certainly do that themselves. Unfortunately, they’ll take the rest of us with them too.

    They’re just kids trying to act sophisticated and “advanced.”

    The assholes teaching them this is how you do it need to be fired.

      I told my kids to never do this.

      Don’t be a social justice snowflake.

        You/your wife have to review with each kid what happened at school that day, what they learned etc. Then, you CORRECT anything that is outright ideologically progressive, carefully explaining why what they were told at school is inaccurate/wrong. Make a note of EACH correction you make, and CONFRONT educators, school administrators etc. at every available opportunity. The alternative is private schooling which costs upwards of $15K/yr for each. Also, purge your social Rolodex of anyone employed in the public education sector. These people are insidious, and will corrupt your children on their own time if given the opportunity.

          I do the best I can.

          I shouldn’t do this but this was us at Pisew Falls last September.

            Very nice, Dance. But you shouldn’t do that. BTW, my wife scrapes her way to just passed five feet tall as well. Before her, I had always dated tall girls, so I really had no warning that I was going to be overwhelmed and overtaken by this little Japanese girl I happened to meet in a queue at a variety store. I think the term is “gobsmacked”. The IMPACT of meeting her was the only event in my life that I can still only barely describe with words. Like you, I still can’t figure out what the hell she saw in me/my future to even bother with. I have had a few lucky breaks in my life. She is the biggest one of all (and she hasn’t grown an inch since we married!)

          My wife was delivering me to Gillam.
          She’s five feet tall and I’m five foot ten.
          She’s taller than me in so many ways.
          She’s scrumptious.
          She loves me.
          I’ve never quite figured that out.
