As "safe spaces" increase - old "safe places" like schools become unsafe??

Was just listening to some young girl say that she wasn't going to be intimidated by "evil" in a place that was supposed to be "safe", meaning her school. When I was a kid, I didn't know of one "safe place" even my home, if I did something stupid and got a whoopin (by my parents, uncle, cousin, friend, etc), then that happened. Now kids cry and run to their safe spaces and ask "WHY, WHY, WHY!!??"..

So now this totally ridiculous "safe space" idea has become a sickness and kids have no clue about the world. Maybe this is the way the world reaches out to shake these kids awake and make them realize that there are no such things as "safe spaces" and bad things can happen anywhere. I think there is a balance in the world - the more "good" that is done, maybe the more bad/evil is also done - seen or unseen. The more "safe places" are demanded, the more places that used to be safe become unsafe.

Blaming the incident on a 1 in 350,000,000 guns is the definition of stupidity, when it could be blamed on 1 in 350,000,000 people in the US.

Agreed. Well said,.

Problem is people in control of the mass media are pounding stupid into everyones head until it sticks.

Gonna disagree here.
I think the entire west, especially America, but most western nations (and far east) are safe places overall (some more than others, and some areas more than others.)

A gated community in a nice part of town...a hell of a lot better growing up there than say, the bronx or urban #eshow chicago.

How that effects the world has a interesting cooralation. the lowest IQs on earth come from the most unsafe areas..the highest IQs in the safest lowest crime countries. I believe the two relate as people have less instinctual fear, thereby allowing their brain to process higher learning.

Thats a safe place...and yeah, if you do wrong, you'll be spanked, but thats not what a safe place is...a safe place is designed to protect you from outside threats...a schoolkid shouldn't be freaking out daily wondering if someone is gonna come in and shoot up the class. Its up to us to make sure that doesn't happen.

Safe space...now thats a different beast all together. That is a impenetrable thought bubble, and people seeking those out are mental midgets.

Not sure how the gun debate relates. I am without opinion there as its a complicated subject.

Oh looky. Another rabid anti gunnner with no real solutions, but tries to feel morally superior by blaming law abiding gun owners for everything.
Talk about bullsh**.

When I was a kid, weird kids got sent off to a special school.

These days you hear people crack jokes about the short yellow bus.

We need to seriously look at people who are on (or belong on) SSRIs. They (and their bleeding heart supporters) shouldn't be allowed within orbital range of society.

But do you have anything legible and logical that may in some form be construed as information ? Some quality added to the thread ?
What is a "human centipede" ? And how does that relate to firearm violence in the US ?
Please expound on your theory as some of us do not know.

People like you scare the the hell out of me.

You are an authoritarian, you want to lock people away you deem unsafe to live in society, that's a slippery slope you're treading and it ends in a dark place.

Worse is that you will expect others to do your bidding for you, you won't even get your hands dirty you will just point fingers and demand action.

Go ahead, lay it on us gun-nuts. But given how very unoriginal your post was, I doubt you have one.

gee when I was a kid, not only did I feel relatively safe at home, but I felt safe walking to kindergarden class.... alone. I felt safe roaming the neighborhoods after school with my friends till the street lights came on. and, I felt safe in school. I feel so sorry for the op that he had nowhere that he felt safe.

that being said, just what is the point of the op??? that today's kids are "snowflakes" because they don't like the idea that their school might be the next one to have some deranged nut walk in with a high powered assault rifle and get blown to bits? how many times have it happened so far this year??? the very short month and a half or there about of it? think it averages out to something like one every 2-3 days. it's not like their fear is unfounded is it??

The shooter wasn't old enough to legally buy himself a beer.
He wasn't old enough to buy himself a handgun either.....
But, oh no.... we can't come up with a law that would prohibit the kid that is deemed to young to buy beer from buying what is proving to be one of the deadliest weapons available for sale in the US!!! That would just go against his constitutional rights!!
but I can see why the conservative right in this country wouldn't want to do much about this. I mean, they don't like the public school system anyways... they'd probably be more than happy if parents became too scared to send their kids to school... who knows maybe there'd be a mass exodus of mothers out of the labor force flocking home to home school their little ones, right?

I don't know what the solution is, probably a combination of many solutions. But I do know that the current situation should not be acceptable to anyone!!! and to relate the desire that the kids be provided with a safe environment in school to the ops insecurity at home because mom or dad might smack his arse because he got himself into trouble is just insane to me!!!

I am indeed an authoritarian - guilty as charged!!

I guess you fear people like me more than you fear a monster, with an AR-15, in a school, with your kids.

50 years ago there were lots of us. 50 years ago mass shootings weren't common things. 50 years ago it would have been an uncommon thing to stand before a judge because a little discipline was physically doled out.

Now they hand out drugs that make people snap when they stop taking them. Now the people that would have stepped up and stopped a problem in its tracks stand by and let all manner of anti-social acts take place.

All because people like me scare the Hell out of people who are afraid of their own shadows.

No you're just a monster, there's simply no middle ground with types like yourself, you're so entrenched in your way of thinking you cannot see another way.

Lucky you have no power though, you are just another soundbite, espousing intolerance for anyone that thinks differently than what you have been programmed with.

Gun nutters are those like Obama speaking for legislating new "common sense" gun laws, as if criminally minded mass murderers will observe common sense when they arrive at their chosen target.

It's the same reverse idiocy that has them installing "gun free zone" signs at schools to let killers know they will be safe there when they attack.

That deserves a new kind of Nobel style Darwin prize don't you think?

Your idea of the middle ground is willingly relinquishing your rights and forcing me to give up mine without debate. Every conservative is familiar with the implementation of that type of agenda.

What floors everyone on my side of the fence, is the historically documented danger of letting your side 'get away with it'. Think Stalin - Think Mau. I know you'll just ignore that element of your 'slippery slope', so I'll leave you with the last word.

I don't like your solution either, you like me have no say in what others should and shouldn't do, I prefer to live and let live, you prefer to dictate to others what you think they should do....

Sorry it just doesn't work that way, your freedoms end where mine begin.

50 years ago we were playing with double barrel stotguns and single shot rifles out in the woods hunting squirrels...

the only thing in your post that has any relevance really is the point you make about the drugs.. it's just so much easier to pop a pill or two and forget your problems than it is to actually work you way through the problems... or help another work their way through them.
maybe in some, they really do have an imbalance and the pills help, but I really think that for many there really is no imbalance just a real crappy situation they need some help figuring out. for them the pills cause the imbalance. in either case, once the brain accommodates the imbalance, it doesn't do well without the drug. you'd think society would have an interest in ensuring that these addicted people have easy assess to the mental health system and the drugs, since quitting cold turkey can cause some drastic behavioral changes which includes violent acts against themselves and others.... but well.... what can we say..... NOT WITH OUR TAXMONEY!!! right??

I just observed such a situation firsthand... hardworker, functional, working, wasn't making a ton of money, but was functional.... now, in jail... I am caring for her cats... the only thing that we can come up with is that she stopped (or ran out of her meds) ....

the concept of 'safe places' was not construed by the conservative minded folks... the mystical SafePlace sounds like a excape-from-reality fostered by the libs who sing together 'We Are The World'


the only safe-place is a panic-room local, cleansed by a gun carry individual...instill that definition of safe-place to the youth that are under-the-influence of the Kum-bye-yah crowd...

a "safe place" is not another metaphor for a doper buzz or trip, nor an Alcoholics black-out zone...as the vocal minority of generations of post baby-boomers suggest... the head-in-the-clouds propaganda has disemboweled the present pop-culture of Americans & indeed most of Europeans also ("snowflakes" = 'I/We are all Unique & Equisite beyond Measure')
