TRIGGERED BY THE DECOR: Minority Students Feel ‘Marginalized’ By WOOD PANELING — No, This Is Not Satire!

Written by K. Walker on May 16, 2017

Maybe we’re looking at this all wrong. Maybe we should be looking for things that DON’T offend college students.

It might actually be faster.

Snapchat, Tinder, ‘Bro Rompers’.

See? Just find the things that offend normal people.

Here’s where it gets difficult…

To University of Michigan students, the interior decor of their historic Michigan Union building is too ‘masculine’ and ‘marginalizes’ minority students.


I’m not making this up.

Anna Wibbelman, former president of Building a Better Michigan, an organization that voices student concerns about university development, stated at a student government meeting in late March that “minority students felt marginalized by quiet, imposing masculine paneling” found throughout the 100-year-old building, the meeting’s minutes state.

The building, dubbed by campus officials as “one of the University of Michigan’s most recognizable landmarks,” is set to undergo a massive, $85.2 million renovation project, and as part of that process architects have sought the input and advice of students.

Why do they want the input of the students?

The Michigan Union building is a hub that houses offices for many different student groups and is also the main area for events and student orientation.

The building is slated for major renovations of the interior floorplan, multiple rooms, and the courtyard.

The College Fix reached out to the University of Michigan spokesman, Rick Fitzgerald, about the ‘triggering’ wood paneling.

He responded by email.

…“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.”

“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,” he said.

Here is a closeup of the triggering wood paneling:

This very building houses a lounge that was featured in The Ann Arbor News as one of the best places on the entire University of Michigan campus to study.

Here is the image that they featured in the article:

And here are the students in front of the offensive paneling.  They’re protesting, but not the paneling — this photo was taken during a sit-in where the students were demanding racial segregation.  Because it’s 2017, and that’s what colleges are doing now, apparently.

Maybe there are bigger problems at the University of Michigan than the wood paneling.

I’m just sayin’.

They could fix things by handing out these books to their students:’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles addresses our nation’s abysmal wussification in his NEW book …

The Effeminization Of The American Male
by Doug Giles

Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog,, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity.

That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.

In The Effeminization Of The American Male, Giles takes ‘Crispin’ from the unaccomplished, prissy and dank corridors of ‘Wussville’ up the steep, treacherous and unforgiving trail that leads to ‘Mantown.’

“Secretly, everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a p*ssy generation.” – Clint Eastwood

This is definitely one of the most politically incorrect books to ever hit the market.

It will most certainly offend the entitled whiners, but it will also be a breath of fresh air to young males who wish to be men versus hipster dandies.
