Far-Left University of Edinburgh to Ban... Raising Your Hands?
We at LwC like to keep you up to date with all the latest outrages that are sweeping college campuses across the globe (see College ‘Diversity Advocate’ Blames ‘Bigots’ for Spoiled Student Tantrums… and WATCH: College Employee Assaults White Student… For ‘Racist’ Dreadlocks.). It's turning into a full-time occupation. Today we bring you the latest outrage... raising one's hand. I tell no lies. I figuratively raise my hand in scout's honor. From Reason:
Granted, raising one's hand has long been the universal symbol of "I have a question," especially in educational environments. But sometimes hand-raising can denote disagreement with a speakers' position, or even exasperation, and that's where we get into dangerous territory, say University of Edinburgh students. The move could be viewed as disrepsectful—and thus a violation of the school's "safe space" policy.
Last week Imogen Wilson, vice president for academic affairs with the student association, was threatened with removal from her position after she "raised [her] arms in disagreement" during a council debate and shook her head disapprovingly.There has been a safe space complaint against @eusavpaa for inappropriate hand gestures. #eduni— Student Newspaper (@Student Newspaper) 1459448827.0Proposer: I can see @eusavpaa making a negative head motion again #eduni— Student Newspaper (@Student Newspaper) 1459451525.0
The "perpetrator" isn't taking this lying down...
Maybe people should be less concerned with my arm movements and more concerned that EUSA just passed policy to support BDS.— Stephanie Vallancey (VP Education) (@Stephanie Vallancey (VP Education)) 1459535512.0
Here's the punchline. Are you ready?
Imo Wilson (that broad whose tweet is featured above) actually supports safe space policies. Just not when they're being used against her. That's not bueno. So when she's busy enforcing her beliefs on someone else? Naturally they must obey. When used on her? Naturally, safe spaces are ridiculous. By what logic, you ask? Stop being
racist sexist transphobic privileged.
Let me rapid-fire this for any leftist SJWs reading, just to avoid confusion.
- There is nothing wrong with raising your hand in class.
- Raising one's hand, does not necessarily "denote disagreement with a speaker's position."
- Even if said raised hand did denote disagreement... well, see point #1.
- You give me great desire to cause myself bodily harm.
The fact that in 2016, I am even required to write out any explanation as to why college students should have the right to raise their hands in a free country is causing me to have what I can only imagine is a slight seizure.

Okay I think it passed.
Over here in America, our college students raise their hands in objections of words that displease them. Seriously, just don't go to college.
