Re: Clapping banned at Oxford University to stop people being triggered
The new meaning of the word triggered is that what a person does is justified because another person set them up for that response.

The way you looked at me triggered me to kill you and it is all your fault.

jazz hands

ive never acrtually seen anyone in person do it.

but im sure i will someday
 Quoting: Grove Street


Someone should call the station thats holding the next Dem debate and tell them they won't be able to watch due to a concern from unexpected clapping. It'll be a matter of time before one, if not all the candidates start talking about trigger warnings and then vowing not to encourage clapping. Then you'll see your Jazz hands.
 Quoting: Prudent Nomad


thats a really good idea and then booker baldy can start speaking in spanish too. and bernie i think already does jazz hands but communist style

Re: Clapping banned at Oxford University to stop people being triggered
Can someone find that video of the DNC speech where they say you must not clap?

At first I thought it was parody of millennial sissies.
But it's real!

Accoring to predictions I've been reading, Texas will be blue by 2028. Could be wrong but if a shit stain like Beto can give Cruz a run for the title, Texas better change pronto. That would start with serious deportations.

Re: Clapping banned at Oxford University to stop people being triggered
"Students at the University of Oxford have voted to ‘replace clapping’ with a silent wave because it ‘could trigger anxiety’.

They are instead being told to use ‘jazz hands’, where they wave their hands in the air. The motion to ‘mandate the encouragement of silent clapping’ was successfully passed by the university’s student union officers, following their first meeting of the year on Tuesday. It will come apply at student union events, and if successful, rolled out to other societies and events. Oxford students had argued that alternatives to clapping already existed in some organisations and institutions and that they should follow suit."

Just give these fools a round of applause. Working hard to further dumb down themselves and each other... with threats of violence all the while too.

Of course, Prudent Nomad! Once Texas goes Democrat it's permanent because of all of the illegal immigrants that are still flooding into Texas.

My God. When men in their 20's cannot handle the sound of clapping....that is just scary.

Let's hope the men of Oxford are never called to defend their country, because if they can't handle the sound of clapping, how will they handle the sound of gunfire?

Scary. Very scary.

This removes all incentive of giving a good speech or performance. When you’re on stage, you want those applause! Jazz hands doesn’t fulfill that rockstar need for applause from a crowd.

Re: Clapping banned at Oxford University to stop people being triggered
It is an unfair advantage that some people can clap much louder than the others around them, causing the quiet clappers to feel they have lost some of their voice in the matter. Making them feel less important.
Everyone waving is a much more fair practice when voicing an opinion.
Until some wise guy gets one of those large foam hands and starts waving that around…

The change is likely to cause severe depression in actors and musicians who want to HEAR a little appreciate for all their hard work and practice.

...and when Texas goes blue, the "cold" civil war goes HOT. Texans will never submit to gun confiscations. And I don't believe it's turning blue. Pretty sure that's just marxist propaganda. The left (politicians + marxist infiltrators in the intelligence agencies) are blackmailing & death-threating the entire Texas congressional delegation into quitting. They're doing that & inventing this blue lie to cover for their planned voter fraud coup in 2020.

A crowd full of people doing "jazz hands" is absolutely ridiculous.

I think some people are just triggered when an opposing viewpoint is applauded because it threatens their fragile worldview. The silence reinforces their sense of a "safe space."
