Safe Rooms At College Include Play-Doh And Coloring Books

At Brown University a debate about "rape culture" was considered to be threatening because of a speaker who could "invalidate people’s experiences". What to do? Create a safe room:

The room was equipped with cookies, coloring books, bubbles, Play-Doh, calming music, pillows, blankets and a video of frolicking puppies, as well as students and staff members trained to deal with trauma.

They do not mention Crayola crayons. But surely there were crayons, right? I hope so.

Children in college aren't ready to grow up and face the mean world of ugly and evil facts. They want to only get exposed to social truths which social justice warriors have agreed to, not real factual truths and not disagreements.

This is pathetic modern childish feminism. The right of certain groups to not have their feelings hurt has become paramount. American society is sick.

Any ideas on how healthy people can separate from society and form a parallel society? Preferably one that won't be shot up by federal agents on some sort of pretext.

The Amish have managed it but the Amish luddite alternative lifestyle doesn't threaten the system.

Agree 100%.

To me all this social outcome doesn't seem the natural process of things. It would seem as if a few very powerful people would have the purpose to exasperate things with all sorts of absurdities. They can buy politicians of course. The question is WHO are they that benefit from all this new obscurantism...

Time to reverse all those stupid trends, crazy movements, wild ideas in education, freedom-snatcher laws, etc, from decades ago and get back to Basics 101. If that were possible.....

And yet the cuntification of America continues and accelerates. All this is bad enough, but when it shapes our foreign policy it will positively be lethal. Consider the possibility of a president who thinks we have to empathize with our enemies, or a once and possibly future house speaker who was completely distraught and tears came to her eyes after hearing Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu speak before Congress.

This is, quite frankly, mental illness. The universities are promoting mental illness among the young people. This, I believe, is a direct cause of why female employment has declined below European and Japanese levels in the past 10 years. We no longer hear talk about the "mancession" because it is no longer a "mancession". There are a higher percentage of women, particularly young women, out of work now.

If those in charge get that weak than a ruthless few could take power from them. Aim to be those ruthless few.

I would but I'm too old.

I started laughing out loud while reading and hovered over the link thinking surely the excerpt was from The Onion. Coloring books and Play-Doh for college students?! I'm introducing both of those things to my 15 month old son now. This is almost beyond parody.
