The insanity on some campuses

Read this and weep:

A university student was threatened with being thrown out of a meeting after being accused of violating “ space” rules – by raising her hand.

Imogen Wilson, the vice-president for academic affairs at Edinburgh University Students’ Association (EUSA), spoke out against space rules becoming “a tool for the hard to use when they disagree with people”, following the incident last week.

Ms Wilson, 22, was subject to a “ space complaint” over her supposedly “inappropriate hand gestures” during a student council meeting.

According to the association’s rules, student council meetings should be held in a “ space environment”, defined as “a space which is welcoming and safe and includes the prohibition of discriminatory language and actions”.

includes “refraining from hand gestures which denote disagreement”, or “in any other way indicating disagreement with a point or points being made”.

Utter madness. How about head gestures? Shaking your head to disagree must be banned also!
