Not a joke: Feminists Ban Clapping Because it Triggers 'Anxiety'


A U.K. student feminism conference is asking attendees to refrain from clapping and use "jazz hands" instead so as to not trigger anxiety in others.

The National Union of Students (NUS) Women's Campaign announced the clapping "ban" at the West Midlands conference on Twitter Tuesday, shortly after receiving a request from the Oxford University Women's Campaign.

"@nuswomcam please can we ask people to stop clapping but do feminist jazz hands? it's triggering some peoples' anxiety. thank you!" Oxford representatives wrote (https://twitter.com/womcam/status/580389025892175872).

The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.


The world gets crazier and crazier every day, more and more the bizarre has come to be the norm.
A fool's paradise is better than none.
