"I Don't Want to Debate. I Want to Talk About My Pain"

A line that could serve as the motto of the thin-skinned, safe-space-seeking campus snowflakes. (See what comes of marinating kids in "self-esteem" and giving 'em prizes for merely showing up?)

Update: Claudia Rosett, tongue implanted in cheek, comments on how Foggy Bottom's "travel advisory" might impact the 'flakes:
On the lighter side, for the sake of the State Department I hope no one allows this travel warning to reach the university campuses of the United States. Trigger warning: State's advice is on a collision course with those "safe spaces" that are now the prime mission of the academy. There's a "conversation" in the making here that could rival the final moments of HAL the computer, in "2001: A Space Odyssey."
