Life in a permanent safe space.
The University of North Dakota is offering progressive social justice warriors the opportunity to live in special housing where their views will never be challenged by those who disagree with them.
Imagine a dorm which functions as one big safe space. Can you imagine what a fun living environment this will be?
Heat Street reports:
University of North Dakota to Offer ‘Social Justice’ Themed Student Housing
The newly established Social Justice Living-Learning Community will endeavor to provide social justice-oriented students with opportunities for “creating and leading positive social change,” according to its website.
The Social Justice LLC is intended to create a welcoming atmosphere for all students, regardless of “age, size, gender, sexual orientation, identity or identity expression, disability, race, ethnicity, color, creed, national origin, cultural background, socio-economic status, or religious affiliation or conviction.”
The new community will give to students the option of requesting “gender inclusive housing assignments,” meaning that students will be able to choose a roommate “with whom they are most comfortable without consideration to the individual’s sex, gender or gender expression.”
Students are further encouraged to invite guest speakers and host events “designed to help broaden their understanding of social justice.”
The Social Justice LLC is not the first such housing community at the University of North Dakota. Four others currently exist for students interested in Aviation, Engineering & Mines, Wellness, and for Honors students.
There’s an obvious question no one seems to be asking about this. If college campuses are dominated by progressives who espouse the values of social justice (and they are) why do these students need special housing?
Wouldn’t it make more sense to offer special housing for the students who don’t agree with these ideas?
Campus Reform notes that the people behind this housing option make it sound like the University of North Dakota is a hateful and bigoted community from which some students need to escape:
Connie Frazier, Executive Director of Housing and Dining at UND, corroborated that speculation, telling Campus Reform that while LLCs [Living Learning Community] are housing initiatives, they arise out of student interest and students self-select who will live in the community.
“This is a brand new one so those students are just beginning now the discussion of how they want to define their community and what kinds of activities they would want to get involved and do,” Frazier explained.
Students who are interested in living in a community that “believe[s] that each person shares the responsibility of creating an environment in which all residents are respected and valued—regardless of one’s age, size, gender, sexual orientation, identity or identity expression, disability, race, ethnicity, color, creed, national origin, cultural background, socio-economic status, or religious affiliation or conviction,” need only indicate interest on their residence hall application in order to be considered for the Social Justice LLC.
Does anyone believe there are forces at the University of North Dakota preventing people of any size, color or sexual orientation from living peacefully?
This is about allowing people who want to live in a political bubble to do just that.
