Defining normalcy down

From the Washington Post:

Sexual harassment is common on campus, according to a national online survey by the American Association of University Women released yesterday, with 62 percent of college students saying they had received a comment or gesture they found inappropriate.

This is a shocking statistic.

We’d expect that somewhere near 100 percent of college students had received “a comment or gesture they found inappropriate.”

The real problem of course is calling a comment or gesture “harassment.”

The roughly 2,000 18- to 24-year-old college students who responded to the survey in May were told that sexual harassment was unwanted behavior and could include anything from suggestive glances to spreading sexual rumors and forced contact.

What these people are doing is “defining normalcy down,” calling normal human behavior “harassment,” to create the illusion of a larger aggrieved victim group. What leads so many liberals to preach being “non-judgmental” about any sort of bizarre and deviant behavior, yet so intolerant of entirely normal behavior?
