There are more items and fewer items that constitute this student purgatory. Many students, and most of their assailants are on anti-depressants, opioids, and anti-stress drugs both prescribed and not. Sexism and racism pervade schools as they do society so your p.c. hardly pertains…

This is what Tamika Brent said after having her skull broken in a MAA fight with transgender guy Fallon Fox: “ I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right…"

This why sports are filled with segregation as in boxing where h…
