Meanwhile, Over at Tumblr
You simply won’t believe the quote you’re going to find at this link.
You just won’t believe it.
Come back and discuss “arbitrary standards.”

How are handicapped people being squeezed out of academic institutions? Seems to me the mentally handicapped are over represented in academia!
I can’t tell if this is satire.
Whining about the notion that the “able-minded” are catered to in higher education is what got me. For whom is education meant if not the able-minded? Those NOT able??
Judging by the graduates I’ve met, I would have to say yes.
“college is catered towards the able bodied and able minded. school applauds people who can stay up all night, skip meals, and work endlessly. that kind of extreme contribution is expected. why are disabled people being squeezed out of academic institutions? why should I feel inferior because of some arbitrary and ridiculous standard?”
– This person is mistaken in his/her assumption that college is geared toward the “able minded”. It is actually geared toward those able to pay, and since this individual has evidently been accepted to a college, it is testimony to that fact. Colleges have been degree mills since at least the 1970’s. There was a time when a person had to show academic excellence and above average intelligence to merit admission to an institution of higher learning, but those times are long past (except perhaps where the Ivy League schools are concerned, and even then not necessarily so if the aspirant is black). The sense of entitlement among our young people explains the remark about an “arbitrary and ridiculous standard”- the “everyone deserves an education” mentality at work here. The idea that reward and recognition should be earned by hard work has been washed clean from the minds of many of the young.
Some of us still grade fairly. We take abuse for it, though.
Why should I feel imferior because I am financially disabled?!
