In some progressive universities, professors provide “trigger warnings” to students before discussing sensitive topics, emotionally charged issues, or events that may trigger post-traumatic stress. “Safe spaces” are places where students can gather to avoid a speaker or event that offends them.
Every safe space should have a marine corps drill instructor in it to make sure they are safe
This is a loaded question. Most students are not sissies, but when discussing difficult, personal, hard-hitting questions, students should most definitely be warned beforehand. If a student has a negative reaction to a discussion in class, they can excuse themselves and calm down elsewhere. It’s common sense and common decency to be considerate to others reactions to difficult subjects.
I think you should add both but only for people who have a true medical issue such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD but you could also have people who will try to fake these mental illnesses, it's basically a blurry line.
Trigger warnings and safe spaces should exist, but students must also provide fair warning if they have any known triggers. Open lines of communication will help prepare them to have the courage to speak up once they're in the "real world".
Yes because many schools are not aware of how every student is mentally and by having trigger warnings and safe spaces is not just universities but all schools it would help make students feel more comfortable in their environment.
life is full of triggers, and people aren't just going to change things to make other people comfortable, but I do believe that there should be places where students that feel alienated or under-represented should be able to go.
