Non-par­ti­san pipes

THE (Times Higher Education) - - LETTERS -

I’m sure the writer of the ar­ti­cle “Uni­ver­si­ties must walk their de­colo­nial talk” (Opin­ion, 25 Oc­to­ber) has her heart in the right place. How­ever, I have dif­fi­culty with the idea that “pipe­line” is an of­fen­sive term. Surely pipe­lines are, in them­selves, morally neu­tral, and those who protest against a par­tic­u­lar pipe­line may quite hap­pily en­joy the ben­e­fits of pipe­lines in other con­texts.

I for one am quite happy to have pipe­lines to bring me fresh wa­ter and carry away foul. In any case, if the Tiny House War­riors ob­ject to the term, pre­sum­ably they can speak for them­selves rather than hav­ing the writer take of­fence on their be­half. lang­to­nian Via timeshigh­ere­d­u­ca­
