But there are many, perhaps even a silent majority, that believe safe spaces, trigger warnings and labeling microaggressions keep students from growing up. Enter Rachel Huebner, a staff writer for Harvard’s student newspaper. In an article critical of campus “sensitivity,” Huebner explains that movements purporting to protect students have gone too far.

“In a class I attended earlier this semester, a large portion of the first meeting was devoted to compiling a list of rules for class discussion,” Huebner wrote. “A student contended that as a woman, she would be unable to sit across from a student who declared that he was strongly against abortion, and the other students in the seminar vigorously defended this declaration. The professor remained silent.”
