    You must reap what you have sown, since the Vietnamese people were respecting for the American democracy, the American justice, and the American freedom, you did betrayed the South Vietnam - and therefore, the Jordan and Afghanistan soldiers betrayed you.

    Harassment or ignorance to the full facts about waxing, there is a difference, and provocative, i.e., to provoke the mind to think and reason, isn‘t this the real objective to what legal learning is all about? Maybe the administration (or others) have a hidden agenda? Truth be told, one doesn‘t need to be asleep to learn that while being waxed the waxing technician made a mistake, it happens all the time! Pulling the wax is like pulling a bandaid, it occurs in an instant (or at least it‘s supposed to) and placing the wax on the skin, although it is warm, the human mind is not that attuned to pinpoint the exact milimeter or two, which is pretty much what we are talking here. Time to lighten up and let professors teach with a little bit of leadway, or at least go get a bikini wax first and then judge him for his lack of precision.

    So there are snowflakes at Howard Law School. What a whiny group of younger lawyers we are turning out. What happens when they get a real case out in the real world that offends their moral sensibilities?

  • Just Saying...

    The professor was trying to be provocative but his true ignorance shows quite blatantly. I doubt that there is any person out there (woman or man) who has ever gotten a wax of any sort (particularly to the private regions of the body) that has slept through it- unless, perhaps, they were medically sedated. He posed a stupid question. This is a very painful procedure. If he is going to ask a provocative question, then he should know what he‘s talking about. Otherwise, like in this instance, it does just look like harassment.
