Just read this article, saw links on my facebooks to other sources saying the same thing.

Before my head explodes, would the resident conservatives please walk me off the cliff and explain this to me in a way I might understand.

Cause honestly, my initial reactions are that this is exactly why my nation won't ever be great again.

Ok that is idiotic.

Indeed. And my experience isn't atypical. Though it seems to always happen in liberal arts colleges. You never hear about this shit happening in med school. Probably cuz they're too busy working.

I'd imagine it's a different breed going to med school as well.

Or because medical school curriculum is not social science, or opinion based. Nobody shouts down conservative opinions on Kidney function, because it's apolitical. 

There's politically charged discussion on brain function, though. 

That's a non-sequiter, since "capitalism" has nothing to do with liberal arts, as in humanities - it's related to economics, which is a social science.

So I'll venture that "liberal arts" in some schools is just a generic 'catch all term' which apparently can somehow now include rubbish such as postmodernism or political and economic theory, rather than actually having anything to do with the term in question.

Social science isn't "liberal arts' by any proper definition that I"m aware of. I've never heard of economics, psychology, etc referred to as "liberal arts".

There's plenty of politically charged discussions to be had in med school: race based medicine, euthanasia, abortion, vaccines etc.

Biological sex distinctions.  Transsexuality/ gender identity disorder.  Genetic IQ factors.

Sure, but largely that's within the confines of discussions about ethics and philosophy of medicine - not the science and practice of "how" rather than "why".

I don't know man. Questions like whether or not doctors should be obligated to prescribe birth control is less about medical treatment and more about ideology.

And I could see plenty of instances of people saying I don't give a shit about the Hippocratic oath; my oath(s) to God(s) supersede that therefore I can't do X.

What's a JW doctor to do if the only thing that will save a person's life is a blood transfusion?

Lumberjoe - yes, but again those are ethical and philosophical questions, that are more likely to be compartmentalized in a phlebotomy class where you are learning how to insert a central venous catheter - rather than dictating the discussion.

But what do I know.

Same. I'm just guessing.
