Apparently college students aren't mature enough to read certain stories, or write them.

A violent, disturbing story written by a student leads to the student being expelled. The student complains that he was inspired by a reading assignment from the class, so the teacher who assigned it gets the boot. And in fact, the whole issue gets turned over to the authorities- and ends up on the SFPD Homicide Division. There was never a homicide!

And again, we have people hyperventilating and overreacting, all sound and fury, signifying... nothing. A young writer with a predeliction to slasher flicks writes a slasher story. A really icky one at that. People do that. ::sigh::
  • To create a thing is to give it some existence in the world. That's serious. The person you are once you've read certain things, or written them, is different than the person you were before.

    But to...compound that? Wrong word. It's the worst kind of superstition to treat these symbolic actions as actual actions. Actual firings? Actual expellings? How are people supposed to have a reasonable relationship with the contents of their minds when gets pulled shit like this?

    Ugh. File under 'I guess we actually are becoming a selective New Testament theocracy.' Except, given our politicians and their predilictions, I can't imagine the adultery-in-your-mind bit will ever be more than a misdemeanor. If, you know, that.
