Clapping, they say, causes stress.
Going forward, participants in the The National Union of Students (NUS) Women’s Campaign will be expected to replace noisy applause with extended, open hands called 'jazz hands.'
Whooping is also banned.
• Neo-feminism is a cultural Marxism phenomenon that hijecked the 19th-century feminist movement. Today's faux "feminists" fill the role of the oppressed proletariat with males consigned to the role of oppressing bourgeois.
• Behavior modification -- such as replacing hand-clapping with jazz hands -- is a brainwashing technique often found in extreme religious cults. As cult members willfully submit to unusual but seemingly benign behavior changes, they are mentally conditioned to accept other cues from cult leaders.

“Jazz hands are used throughout NUS in place of clapping as a way to show appreciation of someone’s point without interrupting or causing disturbance, as it can create anxiety,” said Nona Buckley-Irvine, general secretary at the London School of Economics Students’ Union. “I’m relatively new to this and it did feel odd at first, but once you’ve used jazz hands a couple of times it becomes a genuinely nice way to show solidarity with a point and it does add to creating a more inclusive atmosphere.”
NUS sent out a similar tweet earlier in the day that also discouraged “whooping.”
“Whooping is fun for some, but can be super inaccessible for others, so please try not to whoop! Jazz hands work just as well #nuswomen15,” they said.
