The Doctor’s Den – Insights: The Absurdity of Safe Spaces

In this edition of Insights, Dr. D. Light has a bone to pick with safe spaces.

In which I express my vehement displeasure with the idea of safe spaces and how they are manifesting and being abused on campuses today. Basically, I blow my top and tear into safe spaces and trigger warnings, arguing that they are bad for society – and that it time for the moderates to take those spaces back and make them places where we encourage people to trigger each other – safely.


Academia used to be the place for this to happen. It was in academia that people challenged and re-challenged core ideas.  Knowing that they were trying to make a better society by working together despite their differences. The moderates need to take academia back…and if not that, at least the safe space that academia once represented.
