I was researching social issues for my English class to write this youth voices post and I came across an interesting read here https://www.isidewith.com/poll/2905674286 about if colleges should start to offer safe spaces and trigger warning areas for students. It got me think on how this would be a good idea because it seems like nowadays people get offended over alot of sensitive issues, and it would be rude to throw those on them.
While reading it said that these areas would be designated to students to discuss sensitive topics, emotionally charged issues, and talk about events that may trigger post traumatic stress. In these areas students could choose to avoid topics or people that may offend them but it allows for voluntary discussion. I think this is a great idea because all the points stated are very valid and it would allow for discussion and people who don’t want to be involved don’t have to be.
In conclusion, these safe spaces for college campuses would be a great idea and would allow people to talk freely when they choose about sensitive topics that no everyone can handle. These safe spaces are being implimented into colleges very soon and I for one can’t wait to see them when i go to college.
