Default U of Michigan Snowflakes intimidated by wood paneling

University of Michigan Students 'Intimidated' by 'Masculine' Wood Paneling in Academic Buildings - Breitbart


Students at the prestigious University of Michigan are claiming to be “intimidated” by the “masculine” wood paneling on the walls of academic buildings on campus.
Anna Wibbelman, former president of Building a Better Michigan, stated at a student government meeting that “minority students felt marginalized by quiet, imposing masculine paneling” of several academic buildings around campus.



The primary building in question, the Michigan Union building, is a historical building on campus and serves as one of the most recognizable landmarks of the university.

Although the building is set to undergo a pricey $85.2 million renovation, the wood paneling is here to stay, to the dismay of minority students who finds it presence to be “intimidating.”



“There is a significant presence of wood paneling on the interior of the building and we expect most, if not all of it, will remain after the renovation,” said University of Michigan spokesperson Rick Fitzgerald.

Although students have expressed concern about the welcoming nature of the building, Fitzgerald claims that students have not specifically complained to the administration about the wood paneling ahead of the building’s upcoming renovation.


Concern about the paneling is not something that has been brought forward to the university as a concern from students, who have been involved with developing this project for several years and through dozens of meetings. Students certainly have expressed a desire that the renovation assures a welcoming, inviting, and student-oriented building. It is their building.

God fearing, USA loving, students who are not afraid of their shadows felt sad for all these wussies, and demanded they be removed from their presence.



they'd love my shop!

Taking these idiots seriously is only encouraging them to be even more ridiculous.

I guess wood paneling WOULD be intimidating to one who is used to living with cardboard for walls!

Obviously there isn't enough important things to worry about these days. You'd never see crap like this in wartime or a national disaster where people have to pull together.
Such trivial crap.....who says wood is masculine anyway? Trees don't have genders....

As Michigan was not a slave state, most likely the men who cut the trees were white. Now that would marginalize many.

That's it... I'm residing my house in wood paneling.

I'll never have a problem.

Hopefully termites are snowflakes too.

I do not know how old you are but I was born mid 40s and saw all that was going on.

There were a shit load of people not pulling together during the Vietnam war.

After that they really got emboldened and look at the mess this country is in now because of that.

As far as most minority anything, not just students, most of those idiots get up in the morning and try to figure out what they are going to be pissed at today.

They can always find something, make a stink, get some headlines and get a shyster lawyer and possibly make some money!

Extremely similar - Breitbart. Useless "news" written for exactly the type of people that want to justify their own misconceptions.
