Safe spaces go against the logic of the scientific method because they leave no room for hypotheses that offend or discomfort people.
This is the same line of thinking that led to people believing the Earth was flat and everything revolves around us.

How will students possibly transition into the real world if they cannot have a simple discussion without their opinion being challenged?
We need to not only be open to being wrong, but skeptical of being right.
