    I'm still reading up on it
    Perhaps you can explain why you leapt in to defend and support the concept before you understood. It. I hope you don't do anything similar as a medical student or doctor.

    given counselling
    Anyone that needs counselling for cultural appropriation should take good look at their lives and work out where they went so wrong.

    No, counsellors are for people who actually need help, not someone who saw a white person eating a curry.

    How can cultural appropriation include more than cultural appropriation? Is it like the Tardis?

    Damn you!! Now I have to retreat to my safe space, listen to some calming whale music and hug a golden retriever for about 5 hours.

    The problem lies in supporting something you don't understand. Take the vaccination and autism scandal. Would you think it a good idea that doctors leap in and support those that claimed that MMR vaccine causes autism without examining the evidence and understanding the issue first? I don't.

    Nobody seems to have noticed that safe spaces are usually warm and cosy.

    What happens to snowflakes in such an environment?

    Of course, keeping a snowflake in a freezer causes it to lose its unique properties completely too, so the moral of this is that snowflakes cannot be preserved.

    Not for people complaining about non-issues. I couldn't care less if someone was using British culture for their own gain or a fashion statement. I wouldn't have a breakdown if I saw someone with a Union Jack or eating fish and chips.

    Maybe to you these matters are just trivial but it looks not to others and the universities providing them with safe spaces

    I really want to check out the KCL one and I wonder if my new university will have one

    Part of the ridiculous concept is that it is racism. That does not mean that it is. Your dressing up as Cleopatra was especially bad because you are not of her race, did not speak the same language, come from a different continent and do not follow the same culture.
