University Activist Claims Wood Paneling “Marginalizes” Students

University Activist Claims Wood Paneling Marginalizes Students

The former president of Building a Better Michigan, an activist group at the University of Michigan, claimed that minority students basically felt intimidated by wood paneling.

“Minority students felt marginalized by quiet, imposing, masculine paneling” found throughout the university’s historic Michigan Union building, Anna Wibbelman said during a student government meeting two months ago, according to The College Fix.

As explained by the Fix, the student government meeting was designed to allow students to offer their input in regard to the university’s plan to renovate the Michigan Union building, which reportedly features a lot of wood paneling in its interior.

If what Wibbelman said was true, then it’s clear that the snowflake epidemic has hit a new high. Being intimidated by “masculine paneling”? Really? How do they know the paneling doesn’t self-identify as feminine?

However, campus spokesman Rick Fitzgerald claimed in an email to the Fix that “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,” he added. “It is their building.”

Moreover, Fitzgerald noted that a significant portion of the wood paneling currently inside the building “will remain after the renovation.”

According to the College Fix, current Building a Better Michigan president Jazz Teste has since somewhat refuted Wibbelman’s statement, stating, “I believe it was an off-hand comment about how many students felt marginalized by the quiet nature of the building when they entered.”

So they were intimidated by the building’s “quiet nature” versus the wood paneling? If a “quiet nature” is intimidating, it’s difficult to think of something that wouldn’t be intimidating to someone that sensitive.

Regardless, while wanting a “welcoming, inviting and student-oriented building” is certainly fine, feeling intimidated by wood paneling (or a “quiet nature”) is not.

If anything, it’s a sign that these students desperately need some counseling.
