List of demands

The Washington Post presents the case of a University of Virginia second-year concerned about the recent election.
It starts trying to present sympathy for his plight.
It ends with a list of demands to make him and his friends feel better.
The university must refuse to bend to any federal legislation that may be passed in the coming months and years that would directly harm its students. Female students deserve access to reproductive health services, undocumented students deserve access to education as well as protection from dislocation or deportation, and Muslim students deserve to learn at our university without fear. This school has the power to ensure these things, and it must take the side of student protection if it wishes to fulfill its mission of educational excellence.
It's my way or the highway, says the student.
He's got more learning to do.
