Ohio State Offers Students An Inauguration Day "Safe Space"

Tyler Durden's picture

As America's precious millennial snowflakes continue to wrestle with the fact that Donald J. Trump is now the President of the United States, irrespective of how many tears have flooded college campuses around the country, Ohio State University has announced they will be providing a "safe space" for students to gather to contemplate and internalize Trump's inauguration.  Hosted by "The Women's Place", the "safe space" activities will include "poetry reading workshops, a community mural art project, and campus teach-ins"...because when you can't handle a loss there's no better cure than a group coloring project.

On January 20, 2017, the Student Life Multicultural Center (SL MCC) is hosting “I, too, am America” Inauguration Day 2017. Inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem “I, Too” this one-day event will include poetry reading workshops, a community mural art project, and campus teach-ins. The purpose of this event is to foster a safe space for the Ohio State campus community to connect with one another, support aspirations, and empower growth and change.


The MCC is currently reaching out to graduate students, faculty, and staff to host 45 minute teach-in sessions. After attending one of the programs, attendees will be able to:

  • Define social justice and identify at least two social justice issues
  • Identify at least one lesson, idea, tool, or strategy to apply to their academic and personal experiences
  • Meet at least two new people as well as reconnect with at least one old friend/acquaintance
  • Describe one point of inspiration, motivation or empowerment



According to the College Fix, the event will actually host several separate "safe spaces" with one reserved for viewing the inauguration festivities and another set aside to give OSU's snowflakes the opportunity to “pause, reflect and share."

The “I, too, am America” event is set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will include three concurrent offerings from noon to 3 p.m.: a screening of the inauguration festivities in one room; another room set aside to “pause, reflect and share”; and a third swath of rooms for teach-ins by grad students, faculty and staff.


The event was reportedly inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem “I, Too,” and will also include poetry reading workshops and a community mural art project.

Of course, OSU isn't the only university forced to coddle their perpetually sensitive students today as the University of Connecticut and many others will host similar events all around the country.

Ohio State is not the only campus offering such a venue. The University of Connecticut will host “The People’s Inauguration,” slated to be held at the same time as the swearing in ceremony, oath of office and inaugural address.


Like at Ohio State, the goal of the UConn event is to promote social justice and solidarity as Trump takes office, event organizers said.


Other students plan to express themselves in a more aggressive manner. A student socialist group has organized a nationwide walkout on Friday to protest the presidential inauguration, claiming Trump is planning to “unleash a storm of attacks” on various segments of the American population. Students at dozens of colleges are expected to participate.

Enjoy your "safe spaces" while you can, millennials...at some point you'll have to hop out of the playpen.

And Roberts didn't fuck up the oath this time.

Does a deep-freeze meat truck qualify as a Safe Space?   ;-)

These snowflakes are going to be run over by a loaded Mack truck.

Farmer in Wisconsin said "safe spaces in colleges" infuriated him since his children started working as toddlers and this is the reason he voted Trump.

Everything these brainwashed fools do help us, we should be grateful.

not long from now these spineless fuks will find out life is not accomadating 

...it will be anyone but their fault for being entirely unable to cope with the brutal reality of life.

It should. If not I can arrange to mob a 230 series trackhoe to the middle of nowhere to dig as many holes as you need.


I'm showing off my chest hair today to celebrate on behalf of you all. ItT's the year of the boss in America.

Let the beatings begin!!!!

The world has no safe spaces so they need to remove such stupidity. Need to MAN UP these wussies and not look back.

Ohio State.   They needed a safe space after Clemson whacked them 31-0.  A'holes.

It's Ohio, the state bird is a squirrel.

Remember when the "alt" news was Obama wouldn't take the oath on the Christian Bible- low and behold when Roberts did the oath do- over in the White House "map room", there wasn't a bible to be found.

"Roberts then led Obama through the oath without any missteps. The president said he did not have his Bible with him, but that the oath was binding anyway."

my kids' junior high is doing the same thing.   disgraceful.

Syrin's picture

So take your kid out of that indoctrination center.

onewayticket2's picture

found out an hour ago.....give me a break.

Syrin's picture

I'm giving you advice.   Get defensive all you want, that is not the environment you want influencing your child's impressionable mind.

SmackDaddy's picture

Fuck that- we've been retreating far too long.  Raise your kid the right way and we'll take back these institutions when the time is right....

Raffie's picture

Will he get an A if he sucks his thumb in the SAFE SPACE class?

Used to be called Study Hall and now it is called SAFE SPACE. Oh how times have changed.

established education degrees will be a detriment in the future resulting in being passed over for employment.

would you hire one of these entitled regressive juvenile fvkin idiots?

Sudden Debt's picture

Well, I had.

Whenever they don't "like" their job anymore, and that's when they are asked 2 things at the same time, they just quit. They just don't show up anymore.

Ambitions? "MANAGING PEOPLE"... telling what others should do and do wrong while they make mistakes like a clock ticks away seconds and can't do much themselves.

And they wanted "powernap chairs"... I mean... for the love of god... if you can't stay awake for 8 hours... maybe stop binchwatching crap into the middle of the night? I work 12 hours a day and I need to chill down when I come home, I don't need a powernap because I checked my mails 4 hours in a row!

I only hire 30 plus. I can't handle all that emotional behavior.

Better up that another 10 years soon...

MaxDemon's picture

I can't see ever wanting to hire some one with a gender studies degree, or several others I could think of (and probably a lot I've never heard of and would not believe some one could get a degree in). 

Dave5150's picture

Fuck off, snowflakes, and grow up.

flaminratzazz's picture

colleges are rewarding this behavior, put some blame where it belongs as well.

Snowflakes to the left of me , cannons to the right; turn those cannons on those safe-spaces.

Other students should just participate.  Go to the solidarity/set aside spaces wearing Trump shirts, All Lives Matter shirts and such.  Then take a turn giving a speach about how threatened they feel due to the anti Trump hate, who afraid to walk alone due to their skin color and so on.  How can they be kicked out of the safe spaces?

These so called safe spaces are for all students to feel safe. 

MaxDemon's picture

Sounds like a good ROTC or frat activity!

MaxDemon's picture

The bright side is this keeps them from making trouble elsewhere, and their safe places will soon be defunded.

I also see a business opportunity in training interviewers how to trigger them during an interview, to see if they explode.  (If they explode you don't wnat to hire them.)

TwelveOhOne's picture

Several jobs back, we were invterviewing for a tech support job in a software company.  Standard practice in an interview is to ask questions until you reach the edge of the interviewee's knowledge, then continue asking to see how they respond when they don't know the answer.

This candidate started threatening the interviewer and had to be escorted off premises!

That was back in the 90s.  Glad I'm no longer doing that sort of thing...

LOL,,, And everyone wonders what happened to the American male...

Back in my younger days my safe space was  a bar.

TwelveOhOne's picture

That's just fucking awesome.  I posted the Back to the Future 3 second clip, "Better get used to these bars, kid" -- and I had the thought, that as college-age children these snowflakes might actually be able to get into a bar that serves alcohol.  Wanted to riff on it, but see that you did. :)

Those snowflakes can go fuck themselves.
