Ms Imogen Wilson, 22, was subject to a “safe space complaint” over her supposedly “inappropriate hand gestures” during a student council meeting.
Thug life. No, wait. It wasn’t that kind of gesture.
Ms Wilson said she raised her arm in disagreement.
And such reckless provocation simply will not do.
According to the association’s rules, student council meetings should be held in a “safe space environment,” defined as “a space which is welcoming and safe and includes the prohibition of discriminatory language and actions.” This includes “refraining from hand gestures which denote disagreement,” or “in any other way indicating disagreement with a point or points being made.”
Ah, the student left and its adorable tendencies.
According to the [students association] safe space rules, only gestures that indicate agreement are “permissible”.
A complaint was made against Ms Wilson, who was then subjected to a vote on whether she should be removed from the room.
I can’t help thinking these students are just a tad overwound. But at least things can’t get sillier.
Although the vote went in her favour, with 18 people voting to remove her and 33 voting for her to be allowed to remain, she was later threatened with another complaint after shaking her head while someone was speaking.
Burn the witch!
You know, I don’t think I can top this one today.
