In the big, bad real world, there are no “safe spaces” – at least, that’s what the media has been warning college students lately.

Carolanne Link, a second-year electrical engineering student with cerebral palsy, spends roughly two hours every day riding the UCLA Office for Students with Disabilities van, but when she looks around at her co-passengers, she said, she can’t tell what each person is dealing with.
This myth goes all the way back to the elementary school playground: Men are from Mars and women are from Venus.
We’re in college now, but variations of this gender divide just keep on coming.
