Very primitive attempt to mark clan territory. So much for inclusion. When will we ever learn?
I guess maybe my college wasn't as "Progressive" as Cal but I'm confused as to this safe space thing they're protesting. It sounds like from the article that the safe space is only for trans, gay, or minority students. What exactly is the deal with that. Is that just an area on campus that only students who meet that criteria can go to. If so that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of.
If those groups want to be treated the same as everyone else why should they expect their own area certain students can't access. That seems like it actually hurts their objectives of inclusion.
How absurd is it that a group is given their own space on campus that other students aren't allowed to access and rather than be happy with what they're allotted, since I'm sure they aren't giving others a special safe place, they say the space isn't good enough or whatever and we're going to punish other for that.
