Students in Kent State University's chapter of Turning Point USA, a conservative student group, dressed up as babies last week in an attempt to demonstrate that "safe spaces are for children," according to a report in the Chronicle of Higher Education.
At the protest, TPUSA members wore diapers, suspenders and pacifiers while sitting surrounded by toys behind a plastic fence. On the walls, plastered posters read, “Your Censorship Offends Me” and “The Real Free Speech Zone.”
On Oct. 20, the national TPUSA organization posted a statement on Twitter condemning the demonstration that occurred at Kent State.
The founder of TPUSA, Charlie Kirk, frequently appears on FOX News, CNBC and FOX Business News. He is also a writer at Breitbart News, whose chairman is former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Sites like Breitbart and The College Fix have previously written about a "Breathing Space" at Penn in the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election. During an event at Fisher-Hassenfeld College House, the right-wing sites reported that a student safe space included "cuddling with cats and a puppy, coloring and crafting, and snacks such as tea and chocolate."
