This is one of those stories that makes me all happy and warm inside.

Activists were cleared from a building by officials who claimed that they were making university employees feel scared.

It gets better...

At Ohio State last week, a sit-in and protest inside a university building was cut short when students were warned that they would be forcibly removed by police, arrested, and possibly expelled if they did not vacate the premises within a few hours, by 5 a.m.

The article explores the ironies of the concepts certain SJW students utilize for the purpose of advancing their nonsensical agenda:

Insofar as campus concepts like safe spaces, microaggressions, and claims of trauma over minor altercations spread from activist culture to campus culture, the powerful will inevitably make use of them. Where sensitivity to harm and subjective discomfort are king, and denying someone "a safe space" is verboten, folks standing in groups, confrontationally shouting out demands, will not fare well. When convenient, administrators will declare them scary and unfit for the safe space, exploiting how verboten it is to challenge anyone who says they feel afraid. ...in the name of preserving "safe space," these protesters were evicted.

+1 for OSU
