Canadian University Punishes Students Wearing ‘F**k Safe Space’ T-Shirts

Carleton University in Canada has pledged to issue “sanctions” against students – some of them orientation team leaders – who were photographed wearing shirts that said “F**k Safe Space” at an off-campus rally.

The photos surfaced online Sunday and spread quickly, with social media users speculating that the shirts – worn by both men and women – were a protest against the university’s policy of banning curse words during orientation week.

The Charlatan, Carleton’s independent student weekly, quoted one student “facilitator” who said the shirts were intended as “a statement against the coddling of first year students” evident in the swearing policy.
