    You're brave aren't you! I don't think people in the Middle East would take too kindly to you doing such a thing,especially mocking of their culture or exploitation. Just be careful
    You make them sound such nice people. I've just issued an invitation for them to appropriate my culture.

    What is the reasonable punishment for CA? Stoning? Bullying?

    lol I didn't realise you had the right to appropriate other people's cultures
    Freedom of expression. There is no right saying that someone's culture may not be used nor is there a right to be offended.

    My comment actually referred to resorting to violence.

    Violence will not solve anything,instead these people will feel they are fighting for something worth holding onto and come back stronger

    You can't change people's opinions by resorting to violence,what I would suggest is holding meetings on campus with the two sides

    Nope. They'll just see it as a dictatorship/oppression most likely. Better to get to the root of the problem before any of it gets worse,give them a platform to raise their grievances and work out a solution

    The solution to CA is to remove it. There is no compromise possible. The only possible reason to no-platform someone is because they will incite violence, harm or hatred, not just controversy.

    Remove it from where exactly? Remember it's not something people actually agree on completely(whether it exists or not)

    From the lexicon. It is not a valid concept and, if it were, enforcing a ban would harm everyone, especially the minorities.

    Maybe to you it isn't a valid concept but clearly not to 'SJWs'

    But, and here is the rub, nobody in the real world cares what SJWs think. Obviously, we aren't going to let them dictate or influence what we do.

    These people have come to Britain to appropriate a British education, which includes participating in British cultural events. Instead they are trying to turn Britain into something that it is not - a closed, xenophobic culture like Japan.
