    “St. Ignatius would say that safe spaces are required to care for the whole person, and the entire society benefits from them.

    The idea of safe spaces is that they provide vulnerable members of community with environments where they can be themselves while advancing the national conversation to progress and be more accepting.”

    So how do you explain Ignatius dedicating much of his time to vigorously silencing and stopping the spread of Protestantism?

    What do you mean by “safe spaces” in this article? You begin by saying that their definition and purpose have been maligned by the media but you don’t provide the definition that you’re referencing. It seems like you’re arguing that there should be spaces where hate speech and targeting members of minority groups for harassment are against the rules, except that they already are. In fact, the residence staff of Finlay Hall and the school administration made a great and public effort not only to catch the perpetrator of the whiteboard incident, but to inform the entire student body through multiple media channels that such offensive behavior will not be tolerated under any circumstances. They even called the police! And there has been no shortage of support pouring out from students, on social media and in the various Fordham-affiliated publications, who are in complete disbelief that there is still one kid out there with such a disgusting sense of humor. I’m really not sure how these spaces could be any “safer” unless they installed cameras and microphones in the ceiling.
