DAILYKENN.com -- The University of Chicago has a message for campus-bound students this fall: No safe spaces!
American universities have been plagued with left-wing twits who pretend they are so oppressed by the white majority that they require places to escape; aka 'safe spaces.'
The university isn't buying into the politically correct bull.... er, uh, nonsense.
As the majority of American universities take a vague, middling approach to the intensifying national debate over campus political correctness, one school is opting to be utterly blunt—and uncompromising.
In preparation for the new fall semester, the University of Chicago has sent all incoming students a letter declaring its disapproval of anything that shields people from social discomfort. Chicago’s dean of students John Ellison wrote to the class of 2020:
We do not support so-called ‘trigger warnings,’ we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with our own.
The comments allude to several instances in the past year—such as Williams College’s rescinded speaker invitation to a mathematician who wrote a racist blog post—in which US colleges have shied away from provocation.
