College campuses have had a go of it this past year, what with feeling the Bern, becoming Never-Trumpers and trying to accommodate students needing their safe spaces.
Our delicate little flowers, whom we protected growing up by allowing them ribbons for fifth place finishes, by never handing out Fs as grades and by encasing them in bubble wrap every time they rode their bikes, are off to college and need even more protection.
Safe spaces, or sometimes referred to as positive spaces, were created on college campuses at first to signal that anti-LGBT harassment or speech would not be tolerated, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students could feel secure.
It sounded so good and so very safe, that the idea was expanded to include any marginalized group, allowing them to gather and share their perceived marginalized experiences.
I'm pretty sure, however, none of this exists at Fort Lewis College in Durango.
