Human Detritus

By the way, I stopped teaching Bauman after a student went full wokazoid on me and delivered a 20-minute presentation on Wasted Lives about how Bauman is mean and racist and thinks immigrants are trash. My attempts to explain that Bauman uses strong vocabulary precisely because he’s outraged by the relegation of many people to the ranks of human waste fell on deaf ears. It was clear that the entire group was utterly unconvinced by my arguments and agreed that if you use mean words, you must be a meanie.

After 40 minutes of “but this is such a mean thing to say!,” I gave up and moved on.
