Check Out What Really Happened

University bans clapping, suggests students use ‘jazz hands’ instead - What's next?

College Buildings Of The University Of Manchester.

The British school’s student union has banned clapping, whooping and cheering at their events — suggesting the use of “jazz hands” instead.

“I think a lot of time, I’ve seen that clapping, whooping, talking over each other, loud noises, encourages an atmosphere that is not as respectful as it could be,” explained student union officer Sara Khan to the BBC.

Traditional clapping can be triggering for students with autism, sensory issues or deafness, she said.

Instead of clapping, students attending panels, debates and talks will need to express their appreciation with the sign language equivalent — a silent wave of the hand.

Some people are not on board with the change.

“Students are proposing to ban clapping at universities and instead use spirit fingers,” tweeted football quarterback Shane Morris. “Clapping apparently causes anxiety for some, so no one should be allowed to clap.”

I wonder who orders around student union members....

Looks like the Tavistock Institute has now banned clapping.

Divide, conquer and destroy. Their game marches on.
