    Students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are arguing that the serving of ice cream in facilities like dining halls makes Muslims, Jewish, and vegan students feel unwelcome on campus.

    Student council members at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are protesting the campus practice of serving ice cream, which often contains beef gelatin, an ingredient that makes the treat inaccessible to members of certain faiths and diets.

    According to a new piece of legislation entitled “Ice Cream for All,” which was first reported on by Campus Reform, the student council argues that the university’s use of standard ice cream is discriminatory against members of the Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and Buddhist religions — adding in vegetarian communities on campus as well. The legislation argues that the use of ice cream may make members of those communities feel unwelcome on campus.

    A good friend of mine has celiacs disease and cant eat anything with gluten in it. Does he feel marginalized or excluded when he is in a bakery, or burger joint? No. He is a mature and conservative adult and quietly choses a gluten free option, rather than lobby to have all items with gluten removed from the premises because of his affliction.

    The only affliction these azz wipes have is their own hatefulness and mental illness that forces them to make trouble for others. There was a time when someone like this one would have gotten the crap slapped out of them. Maybe that's the key to today's spiral, we all got too soft and forgot that people in general do what they are allowed to get away with. They seem to think it is a birth right to be trouble makers

    So one can suppose getting take out of a pork sandwich and ice cream would be a macro aggression? I'll sign up for that duty.

    If they get between most of those kids and real ice cream, you're damn' straight they're unwelcome.

    Sounds like an opportunity for food trucks selling breakfast food, BBQ, and ice cream to hang out near the campus!

    I don't know of any Jewish or Muslim people who can't eat ice cream because of their religious beliefs. Buddhists and Hindus perhaps as they are more likely to be vegans.

    The Muslim restaurants around here serve a rice pudding that is very close to ice cream in taste, texture, and temperature-it's really good and has about half the fat.

    I was about to say that same thing. Those faiths have no issues with beef. It's the Hindu's who can't eat beef. Muslims and Jews are barred from pork.
    Liberals! The real fascists.

    It's all about them being vegans. Their feelings got hurt when they got mocked in high school for it, now they have a larger group behind them and they can get even with those meat-eating bullies!
