An "equality" conference at Britain's University and College Union has invited officers to participate in a debate summit as long as they aren't "white, straight, able-bodied men," according to Daily Mail.
In an attempt to provide the safest space possible, the conference is only allowing women, LGBT people, ethnic minorities, and anyone with a disability. In other words, a participant must fit into "protected characteristics."
Also, in order to speak on a particular topic, speakers must have the relevant characteristic or they are banned from participating.
Like American college campuses, Britain's universities have seen their share of lunacy spreading. One example from DM states that Cardiff University students wanted to ban a feminist from speaking to them because she had disagreeable views on the transgender issue. Of course, there is the example of the South African student at Oxford who bullied a white waitress to tears while blaming her for colonialism.
But for a conference attempting to be all about equality, these exclusions are rightfully being questioned as hypocritical. Some are even threatening not to attend. But this is the end result of progressive policies run amok and played out to the end.
Welcome to your exclusive safe space, snowflakes.
