It's indicative of a trend.
It is a culture in universities and colleges that relies on emotion instead of reason, on bullying instead of debate.
It is a problem and we are speaking up about it.
More vague nonsense. I'm not avoiding any discussions. But you're not actually saying anything at all.
This safe space you talk about, a complete figment of your imagination. Or do you care to provide some evidence for its existence?
It's a movement that is almost completely reliant on mass appeal, too big and too popular to be easily refuted or discredited. Tens of millions of parrots all spreading the same gospel, like a stubborn factoid that just won't go away no matter how many times it's refuted.

Pretty soon all words will be offensive in some way. We will only be allowed to communicate in small sighs, nods and interpretive dance.
What an intellectual. It's actually almost offensive that this excuse for a human thinks ADHD is such a pain.. it's not a mental illness, hell, it isn't even a real affliction. The philosophy of the times; the complete inversion of stoicism. Where weakness is a virtue, maybe the meek already inherited the Earth. F*ck...
So you guys are using the word snowflake now too? You know, it's not working out for you guys because there is no substance behind it. It simply comes off as unoriginal stupidity. We all know these people are emotionally fragile and unfit to handle the World around them, not catering to their tantrums and telling them to go f*ck themselves is not being emotionally fragile snowflakes just because you guys say so. You're like petty children going.. "Well, you guys are special snowflakes too!" Without explaining why or even defending any of these ridiculous positions. "Well, not really.. you're just saying stuff now." - "Nuh-uh!" Once again, having a problem with emotionally disturbed people is not the same as being emotionally disturbed oneself. The fact that you people are not even reasonable enough to realize this tells me all I need to know, you're not fit enough to construct any type of serious view of the World. And to let such intellectually impaired children into positions of authority is actually a threat to the well being of our civilisation. "Nuh-uh! Snowflake! Snowflake!" Ughh...............
Reacting to stupidity is not the same as being stupid. Likewise, challenging people that are offended by everything and that wants to micromanage everything in the World to cater to their delicate sensibilities is not the same as being offended by everything. I see this worthless argument all the time, it is without substance.

Good job conforming to the stupidity I just explained.
Of course, there's nothing behind the glib comment. Just a vacant non thinking vessel.
No one on our side ever mentioned a safe space, you guys talk about it all the time.. Your comment is meaningless trash.
