Re: “SMU's pro-rape chant: a teachable moment

Jmmvan had a valid point in saying that the frosh week debacle is a punishable moment. However, it is clear that the "clueless" leaders would have benefited greatly had they been taught better. It is amazing how many university students are accepted to institutions of higher learning having had very little in the way of media literacy education, etc. I maintain that making critical thinking and media literacy mandatory in this, The Information Age, is crucial. Jean Kilbourne, anyone? Critical thinking is a skill;like any other, it needs to be taught. Those who have wondered where those kids left their common sense when ever so blindly continuing this practice by engaging in this asinine behaviour, it is evident that these kids are clearly missing the ability to analyse or even identify all that was wrong about this orientation chant. Heck, even some of those commenting here ask, "why so sensitive?" Blind leading the blind, I tell ya! Time to demand that critical thinking skills come to the front and centre of The Nova Scotian curriculum!
