    University of Michigan Students ‘Intimidated’ by ‘Masculine’ Wood Paneling in Academic Buildings

    by Tom Ciccotta18 May 2017

    Students at the prestigious University of Michigan are claiming to be “intimidated” by the “masculine” wood paneling on the walls of academic buildings on campus.
    Anna Wibbelman, former president of Building a Better Michigan, stated at a student government meeting that “minority students felt marginalized by quiet, imposing masculine paneling” of several academic buildings around campus.

    The primary building in question, the Michigan Union building, is a historical building on campus and serves as one of the most recognizable landmarks of the university.

    Although the building is set to undergo a pricey $85.2 million renovation, the wood paneling is here to stay, to the dismay of minority students who finds it presence to be “intimidating.”

    “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,” said University of Michigan spokesperson Rick Fitzgerald.

    Although students have expressed concern about the welcoming nature of the building, Fitzgerald claims that students have not specifically complained to the administration about the wood paneling ahead of the building’s upcoming renovation.

    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.

    This is just another confirmation that Parenting skills have hit an all time low. While I understand some % of the blame lays squarely on the professors and the Admin, it's the parents who raised these Flakes to complain about everything under the sun, not because they have a legitimate gripe, it's just because they can. It is very sad that Grown Ass people even listen to this type of drivel, let alone agree with it.

    I know it seems like that but my dad was proof you can. Its a whole new train of thought I like to call it being a father and a mother and not a friend. Growing up my parents were the law period. I would get a whippin in school and at home I got it again, because I represented them and they were accountable for me.Hell when I was 8 or 9 I killed a bunch of creek snakes and put them on my cousins bike. I remember thinking when I saw Dad coming with belt in hand this is it I am dead , Dad brought me in this world so he was going to take me out. I have a few friends over the years that questioned what I did and didnt do for my kids. But I sit here with one 27 and one 24 both college grads and working $18 + a hour jobs, NOT LIVING AT HOME, adding to society and not leaches. I take full responsibility for the actions of those 2. It saddens me to see these young ones going with no direction.
    History shows there is always a cleansing, May God Have Mercy.

    Why is there all this moronic nonsense?

    Romans 1:28
    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind...

    I really thought this was a joke to start out with. Sadly it's not. What's next?

    Me too! I've been waiting for the punchline ....

    About the only thing left is for all males to be "neutered" before entering the freshman class; that should lower the "intimidation" factor by quite a bit. Probably won't do much for the football team though. :rolleyes:

    Seemingly, a large portion of THIS Generation has already been Neutered.

    That's the globalist plan and idea. They want males de-balled. Makes 'em much easier to b*tch slap around and do their bidding. Much more compliant. Thus, so much easier to disarm--you scary man/ogre! They'll have their way with you--if you let 'em.

    But I'm OK with the U of Michigan suiting up a team of "Pajama Boys".

    Maybe I should be giving you all a heads' up what's going on. I read/see this stuff every day. But the attack on society and the de-balling process has begun.
