Section 6c of the safe space policy is defined as: 'Refraining from hand gestures which denote disagreement or in any other way indicating disagreement with a point or points being made. Disagreements should only be evident through the normal course of debate.'



Just when does the fucking insanity stop? 8O

It's not like she raised her hand to strike the morons she was debating with. ROTFL

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Edinburgh

Quote:
The University of Edinburgh (abbreviated as Edin. in post-nominals), founded in 1582,[1] is the sixth oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of Scotland's ancient universities. The university is deeply embedded in the fabric of the city of Edinburgh, with many of the buildings in the historic Old Town belonging to the university.[5]


Quote:
The university is associated, through alumni and academic staff, with some of the most significant intellectual and scientific contributions in human history, including laying the foundations of Bayesian statistics (Thomas Bayes), quantum mechanics (Max Born), nephrology (Richard Bright), the theory of evolution (Charles Darwin), the initial development of sociology (Adam Ferguson), modern geology (James Hutton), antiseptic surgery (Joseph Lister), classical theory of electromagnetism (James Clerk Maxwell) and thermodynamics (William John Macquorn Rankine); the discovery of carbon dioxide (Joseph Black), latent heat (Joseph Black), specific heat (Joseph Black), the HPV vaccine (Ian Frazer), the Higgs mechanism (Peter Higgs and Tom Kibble), the Hepatitis B vaccine (Kenneth Murray), nitrogen (Daniel Rutherford), chloroform anaesthesia (James Young Simpson) and SARS (Nanshan Zhong); and the inventing of the telephone (Alexander Graham Bell), the hypodermic syringe (Alexander Wood), the kaleidoscope (David Brewster), the telpherage (Fleeming Jenkin), the vacuum flask (James Dewar), the ATM (John Shepherd-Barron), the diving chamber (John Scott Haldane), and in-vitro fertilisation (Robert Edwards).
Other alumni and academic staff of the university have included signatories to the US Declaration of Independence James Wilson, John Witherspoon and Benjamin Rush, Prime Ministers Gordon Brown, Lord Palmerston and Lord John Russell (the latter matriculated at Edinburgh, but did not graduate), astronaut Piers Sellers, biologist Ian Wilmut, geologists Archibald Geikie and William Edmond Logan, physicists Sir David Brewster, John Robison and Peter Guthrie Tait, writers Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, J.M. Barrie, Sir Walter Scott and Alistair Moffat, economists Kenneth E. Boulding, James Mirrlees and John Hardman Moore, historian Sir Tom Devine, actor Ian Charleson, composers Kenneth Leighton, James MacMillan, and William Wordsworth, chemists William Henry, David Leigh, Guy Lloyd-Jones and Alexander R. Todd, botanist Robert Brown, surgeon James Barry, mathematician Colin Maclaurin, polymath Thomas Young, philosopher David Hume, pilot Eric "Winkle" Brown, former BP CEO Tony Hayward, former director general of MI5 Stella Rimington, theologians John Dickie and Robert Preus, mathematician and president of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Sir Michael Atiyah, and former Home Secretary and Chancellor of the Exchequer Sir John Anderson.


And after all those centuries of producing alumni that changed the world and moved the arc of the human condition upwards, this university (just like all the others) seems now only notable for the number of snowflakes it graduates every year.

I thought the babby boomers were bad but, bar none, the millenials are turning out to be the absolutely most wretched generation in human history. In the western countries anyway, which is why everyone from China to the Islamists are now laughing their asses off at us.

Yep, with kids like this coming up in the world, we're fucked. Image

Funny thing is that every single 'older' generation says the exact same thing about the kids. :lol:

I'm a Gen X'er, a generation most notable for accomplishing absolutely nothing and for driving Kurt Cobain to suicide by liking him too much. But even we aren't notorious for having the insane hypersensitvity and sheer cowardice that the millenials are displaying. Hopefully there's enough jobs at the universities for these kids because with the complete lack of heart and spine they're showing so far they simply aren't going be able to function at all in the real world. Not when presented with any sort of adversity and they fold up faster than a shirt at a Chinese laundry. :|

And I'm of the generation where boys started to wear their hair long... most of us experimented with drugs, "a pill" started the free love social movement and we rejected pretty much everything our parents held true.


So what's your point? :lol:

I agree with you... but I'm hoping that they'll prove me wrong.

I figure tuition at a place as prestigious as Edinburgh must cost like at least $100000 for four years. You'd think that the parents who had to pay that kind of money, no matter how wealthy their family might be, would kind of object to the end result being that their kid graduates with nothing but a degree in social activism, i.e. being a massive faggot (and, no, I don't mean that as an insult to gay people).

Not every place is the US. 1820 pounds a year if your home is Scotland or the EU.

So the same university that produced the man who theorized the Higgs-Boson particle that will open up the universe to humanity through the eventual development of a faster-than-light drive is egalitarian enough to also produce other graduates who want to nuke Israel and ban men from using urinals because it's unfair to women? Bravo, liberal arts department, bravo.

This is what happens in a everyone gets a ribbon society where we do everything we can to negate the benefits of natural selection just so progressives can pat themselves on the back for how nice they are.

This is the world we live in now. As witnessed by this redesigned Gadsden flag that was specially commissioned to not set off any millenial's trigger warnings and send them running for their safe spaces.
