A place where college students can go if they have been subjected to ideas that differ from the progressive narrative. These safe spaces have pillows, soothing music and an understanding, sympathetic staff. Presumably, this allows them to recover from the trauma; free from any lasting damage resulting from exposure to ideas that conflict with their leftist professors.
I attended a talk by Hirsan Ali, who was critical of Islam's subjugation of women. Fortunately, the school provided a safe space for me to recover.
