[H]ere, in no particular order, are the 16 most ridiculously PC moments on college campuses this year:
1. A college had to provide counseling and a “safe space” because some students were so upset that a couple of their classmates were drinking tequila and wearing sombreros at the same time.
Some students at Bowdoin College threw a tequila-themed birthday party where some attendees reportedly wore sombreros. It was explicitly not a “fiesta” or “Mexican” themed party — but apparently, people drinking tequila and wearing sombreros at the same time is in itself an offense so egregious that it warrants administrative action. Note: It is not clear if the offended students were actually at the party, or if they had just heard about it and could not handle knowing that their classmates had been been drinking a kind of booze with a kind of hat on.
2. Students created a “healing space” to recover from a speech that they didn’t even attend.

3. An academic article claimed that ski slopes are “sexist.”
