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
Students deserve to have trigger warnings because universities have no idea what they may have been through individually. I do, however, believe in the discussion of uncomfortable and even "offensive" topics. One needs to become accustomed to discussing subjects that challenges one's point of view, and even how to support your held point of view.
Trigger warning for certain topics may be warranted, and "safe spaces" definitely depends on definitions. Given the amount of violence against LGBTQ+ people, for example, they could use a space where they are safe and accepted.
Yes by having all schools not just universities provide trigger warnings and safe space for students since it would help students who are not doing well mentally or just want to feel safe be more comfortable in their enviroment.
No, universities should not be forced to provide "trigger warnings" or "safe spaces" unless the board agrees to it; Universities should make the choice to include them; we need to better define safe spaces, as safe spaces are likely to discriminate against certain people groups
