In the days following the election, university campuses across the country erupted in rallies and marches. College counselors offered “healing spaces” and meditation sessions to help students cope with postelection trauma. Some professors even canceled classes or allowed students to opt out of tests.
One lawmaker in Iowa says he finds this “whole hysteria to be incredibly annoying.”
Bobby Kaufmann plans to introduce a bill that echoes the eye-rolling frustration expressed by many who think colleges are “coddling” their students, or so-called “snowflakes.”
He’s referring to the piece of legislation as the “suck it up, buttercup bill,” and he hopes to introduce it when the legislature resumes in January, the Des Moines Register reported.
The bill would take aim at state universities that offer election-related sit-ins and grief counseling beyond the resources normally available to students. Those colleges that use taxpayer dollars to fund these extra programs would be subject to a budget cut for double the amount they spend.
