    Even though I live in Australia (and am very familiar with how far Left the place is) and once attended university here (and thus had to put up with many ignorant, misguided teachers and lecturers who liked to spout crazy Marxist drivel), this story is just... too much. It just can't be true.



    Banning sarcasm. Are they actually serious, or are they just being sarcastic, and this is all just a bad joke? Is there anyone else here who has heard of this? Is it actually real?

    I hope you have several decades worth of supplies in your Fallout shelter, because it looks like you’ll have to wait a while for this brand of crazy to blow over.

    Can't be serious. Is it? I live near a University that is very much into the safe places and sensitivity.

    I figure it's not really hurting anyone, the safe places.

    But it is hurting someone if you get in trouble because you have a tendency to roll your eyes and talk a certain way.

    Some people who have been traumatized ARE sarcastic.

    "Oh, really?! You want me to seek help?! Ummmmm, that sounds like a grrrrreat idea, Bucko!"

    Authorities: "Oh, here you are. You are now under suspension for being sarcastic."

    What?!

    Manifestations of "political correctness" can go in some pretty strange directions. Sometimes it can make sense, and sometimes up to debate. And on occasion...go figure. o_O

    Probably a joke, even the Australians government aren't THAT daft.
