U. North Dakota Offers Social Justice Warriors Separate Housing

U. North Dakota Offers Social Justice Warriors Separate Housing

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.

Nothing more.

So the special snowflakes finally got their freezer.

Don’t worry precious, the padded walls and floors and the doors that lock from the outside are er, there to enhance the safety of your safe space… that’s the ticket.

As a North Dakota native, I’m ashamed of my native State today.

    Don’t be, Paul. I’m a native Kalifornicator. Except I grew up in Kali before it went nuts. Outside of SF and LA most of Kali is just like the rest of west. I had nothing to do with the current insanity reigning in that state. When I was growing up they were still building water projects, you could hunt ducks on San Francisco Bay, and hunt Mountain Lions with dogs. Now when I say “Blue Tick Coon Hound” the Kalifornicators in that state think I’m using a racial slur. I say “that state” because now I live in Tejas.

    And, no, Texicans I didn’t bring any Kali-based diseases with me. Except a severe allergy to SF/LA leftism. And you’re lucky to have me because I know how they work, and with all the high tech people moving to Austin, etc., and they’re bringing the disease with them, I know how they work and you don’t. I know from the jump where something is going and how harmful it’s going to be. I’m like the canary in the coal mine, what with my allergy. But I digress.

    No reason to be ashamed Paul. Just one suggestion. Pass a law saying that a certain percentage of the residents in each dorm, if they want heat, must sign a petition acknowledging that they know that in North Dakota heat can only be provided by burning fossil fuels. And they really, really want that lovely heat no matter what effect it has on “climate change.”

    Make them beg for it.

    Look on the bright side, Paul. Now you’ll have them all corralled in one place. You don’t have to go looking for them anymore. So you can destroy them, metaphorically speaking of course.

How long before the special snowflakes start disagreeing with each other on what exactly it takes to make a space safe for each and every one of them.

It sounds a like a metaphorical blood bath in the making.

    “…Unfortunately, ESCAPE has not provided the solace for which it was designed. Problems began the first day when Little Mister Derrida, a wolf hybrid companioned with popular Classism Professor Forrest Moore, savagely attacked senior Pietro Salvador’s emotional support rabbit Che. “It’s unreasonable, and in fact very offensive, to expect Little Mister Derrida to deny his nature in order to confirm to social expectations that make the majority comfortable,” protested Professor Moore, who declines to classify his companion as either wolf or not-wolf. Salvador, who could not be reached for comment, reportedly informed his RA that he had not found the experience emotionally supportive.

    …Freshperson Darlene Oswalt filed a federal civil rights complaint when a professor asked her to take her raptor outside, saying that the college had attempted to “silence [the eagle’s] own story.” Moreover, students with sensory differences have reported hygiene anxieties. “The residence halls reek from feces and urine,” said one student who asked to remain anonymous. “And this time not just that one graduate dorm.”

    Administrators rushed to address student concerns, but unsuccessfully. Room-to-room trigger warnings listing the types of companions therein proved impractical with an active and mobile student body and were condemned as “othering and stigmatizing” by some students. The school hired emergency crisis counselors, but discovered that the students’ anxieties and conflicts merely relocated to the waiting areas of the counselors’ offices. “I can’t reach serenity without Dostoyevsky,” said one student, referring to her emotional support chinchilla. “And Dostoyevsky can’t be serene if there are, like, four coral snakes waiting there with those pretentious assholes from the theater department…”

This is the doctrine of “Separate but Fecal Don’t Smell.”

Four others currently exist for students interested in Aviation, Engineering & Mines, Wellness, and for Honors students.

Soon to be under daily attacks by the residents of the SJW barracks* for their “privilege”.

*Well, they are “warriors”, wouldn’t they live in barracks?

This setup will only last a few months, after which this community will fragment, with one sub-community accusing the rest of not being committed enough to the cause of SJW-hood. Repeat, until all that is left is one psychotic and very lonely individual. I’ve seen this happen.

    My guess is there will be a self-appointed committee of boss cows, probably ugly, tattooed, pierced women with outlandish hair colors. They will at first make others in their classes miserable, and then eventually turn on making everybody in the community into an uproar.

    Eventually, they will come after the guys who don’t date them. Why aren’t you asking me out, do you think I’m ugly? You’re mean!

    Beauty is skin deep, but ugly goes all the way to the bone.

This is perfect. A skinner box where the little mutants can be observed and measured. I give it a month before they either overtly turn on each other or start developing psychosomatic illnesses ranging from rashes to spastic colitis. Pass the popcorn.

Give them a box of K-bars and wait.

Leftism, whether they call themselves socialists, communists, SJWs, or whatever, is a religion. They worship The Holy State as the Great leveler, and source of Everything Good. The vocal SJWs are the Holy Priesthood, set apart from us serfs.

Like the Catholic Church in the Tenth Century, the greatest sin is heresy. It threatens their control of the Orthodoxy. Their safe spaces are much like the medieval monasteries. The monks … er SJWs must conform to the disciplines of their order and suppress deadly heresies that could provoke divine intervention from Almighty Gaia.

If you look at them like religious fanatics, they actually make sense.

“Separate housing? Isn’t that what we used to call a ghetto?
