    I have heard recently that at the majority of universities tend to enforce what people say on campus and off campus. I was wondering if someone can explain if it a problem or just an urban myth? Thanks

    This is definitely not a myth. Most universities are now liberal indoctrination camps. They want people to look different but have the same way of thinking.

    uh i mean the first thing that people point to as evidence of no free speech are safe spaces - which is bs frankly as the concept of a safe space is just where xenophobia in general isn't tolerated. apparently universities also use trigger warnings (this could be a myth tho) but the point of trigger warnings is like... to just warn students that the content they're about to cover has some stuff in it that could "trigger" ptsd so all universities are really doing is preventing students/staff from saying racist/sexist/homophobic/etc. stuff.
