On “Safe Spaces”

I was told recently by someone that I need a “safe space.” This was said in a negative way–as if having a haven is a bad thing. This person, of course, is a Trump supporter and was acting very hateful to me. They probably have nothing but good things to say about the current policy of snatching migrant children from their parents’ arms and putting those children in concentration camps.

Who here really needs the “safe space,” then?

I’m not the one afraid of Black people and immigrants–so much so that I knock them down, beat them up, lock them away and put up walls.

I’m not the one who needs an All White Space.

Think about that if someone tells you, in a derogatory way, that you need a safe space. Who is really the one with serious fragility problems? You or them?
