Think Campus P.C. Is Out of Control? Look at the Military.
it turns out that even the most macho youth, the people who sign up to fight in wars, don’t want to be the butt of racist jokes. And when they are, they turn to an authority to make it stop.
Most talk about millennials and political correctness has an old man yells at cloud vibe to it. Millennials don’t like to be made fun of. They don’t accept being the butt of jokes. Times change and what is acceptable changes with it. Millennials grew up in a consumer cultural with service economy where service is rated by customers. They expect universities being paid a lot of money to treat them like customers and meet their whims, not just their needs.
Looks like this is true in the military as well.
