So Much for a Tolerant Society

All of us have probably felt at some time that we were unfairly punished by a callous teacher, or picked on and teased by boorish and uncaring bullies…Unfortunately, this is part of what teenagers endure in becoming adults… (the law) is simply too crude and imprecise an instrument to satisfactorily soothe deeply hurt feelings…

Such was the ruling of a California judge in a case of a student who sued the school which punished her for using a phrase disliked by homosexuals.

This is doubtless correct, but it destroys the whole concept that a "tolerant society" is being enforced.  It adds credibility to the idea that the only thing being accomplished by political correctness is to move the goalposts to suit their own purposes, not to create a better world for us and for those who come after.
