The brilliant paragons of the culturally effete in the universities across America are doing their darndest to invite a land invasion from a world power disgusted by the lack of martial vigor in America.
Not so long ago, young men were plucked from schools, factories, and fields across the country to go halfway around the world to fight and die in some of the most gruesome conditions ever known.
Now, ‘men’ of the same status in life can’t get through college finals without ‘having a good cry’.
So the Ivory Tower elites at the U of Utah have seen fit to accommodate them with an official ‘cry closet’ for those times when life just gets too hard.
Somehow demanding they ‘suck it up’, ‘grow a pair’ and ‘act like men’ just isn’t sufficient.
Perhaps two words will do: Jordan Peterson.
Here’s more from Redstate…
If students at the University of Utah are stressed out this finals season, they don’t have to deal with it like the adults they’re supposed to be preparing to be, they can just cry in the library. In fact, it’s pretty much encouraged. The school has built a special “cry closet” in the library for their breakdowns.
“Just let it all out,” university spokeswoman Jana Cunningham told a local CBS station. “Let yourself just get away from your studies for the next 10 minutes.”
KSL-TV reports Miller, a senior, created the 400-pound, stand-alone closet for students who need a “safe space sometimes, even if it’s in a very public place.”
“I think one of these should be everywhere all the time,” student Jayde Allison told KUTV while laughing. “Just its name, ‘The Cry Closet,’ is a little funny because definitely finals is a time to cry and panic.”
College is supposed to be a place to prepare students for adulthood (legally, they are adults). This is the opposite. Yes, even we adults get overwhelmed. Adults cry sometimes. We do it at appropriate times and places, we don’t expect places to be built for us to have breakdowns in public.
