Nutty female says word 'too' is SEXIST

A young female student has written a powerful essay explaining why the word 'too' is often used as a way to belittle women - and should therefore be seen as a sexist term.

Cameron Schaeffer, a Philadelphia native and a freshman at The University of Vermont was consulting a friend about a new haircut when she had her 'epiphany'.

'There is no proper way for a woman to cut her hair, let alone do anything right in this world,' she wrote in an essay for Huffington Post.

'There seems to be an unobtainable one-millimeter-wide mark of perfection, and none of us can reach it. Everything is too this or too that.'

She added that she suddenly recognized how the word is seen all over tabloids in reference to women, in all kinds of extremes. It's also, she says, uttered frequently in reference to men. 

'I hear women and men alike each day describing women as too something. But what does it really mean when you call a woman too? I asked myself, "too what?"' she said.

'I have determined that too means you're calling a woman too far away from your idyllic vision of what a woman should be,' she added. 'Something as small as calling a woman's dress too long or her muscles too built has a much larger social construct.'

US colleges are now sheltered workshops for the mentally dyslexic run by no hopers who have never had real life experience outside of the isolated wards that are college campuses. Is this the real way to educate young adults to lead a fruitful life? I doubt it.

Regardless of the obvious stupidity on display here, if she admits that the word "too" is used in reference to both men and women, she has defeated her own argument. It can't be sexist if it's used to describe both sexes.

The University of Vermont used to be a place of good sense before it became "too" Politically Correct.
