College student snowflakes in Britain are banning any personal expression that generates noise because it could trigger and alienate deaf students who can’t hear it.
This gives a new meaning to “Silence is Consent.” From Heatstreet:
Britain’s largest national student union has told attendees of its annual conference they would face “consequences” for cheering and clapping because these forms of expression exclude deaf people.
So what are the students supposed to do?
Instead of clapping, the students were advised to use “jazz hands” – a gesture when people wave their hands in the air – as it’s believed to be more inclusive to people with hearing problems.
Student publication The Tab captured a video showing some students doing “jazz hands” after the election of the new student union president on Wednesday:
The union’s committee member Estelle Hart, who chaired a session on Thursday, told students: “No whooping, it does have a serious impact on some delegates ability to access conference.” She later reminded students again, saying “gentle reminder not to whoop”.
GREAT! Jazz hands don’t make any noise so now the deaf students can see that and feel included in celebrations.
What about blind students? THEY can hear the clapping, but they can’t SEE the jazz hands!
Doesn’t this sound like something that would be a story out of a country like North Korea? One of the cornerstones of conservatism is individual liberty and the right to self-determination, both of which stand in direct opposition to this very type of fascism, all the while these very same students most likely believe it’s conservatives who are the real fascists. (Isn’t that what ANTIFA is about, after all?)
Shelly Asquith, the NUS vice president for welfare, also brought up the issue during the conference, saying “We’ve had a number of requests that people stop whooping”.
Nope, its just you, snowflake. Clapping and “whooping” doesn’t really alienate anyone because even though deaf people can’t hear the sounds they can see the action and still join in. What blind people can’t see they can hear and they can still join in too. This is little more than an exercise to trigger (to use their term) their own narcissism. Such a mandate is great for making these children feel good about themselves, but it fails miserably at using any form of critical thinking required to know that this move toward “inclusion” creates more exclusion than before.
