Suppose, hypothetically there is a group project. We can either meet in person or online. The choice is not democratic though because according to the university guidelines, everybody must agree on meeting in-person but if just one person feels too shy and intimidated by meeting real people, we must do it online. This is year 3 undergraduate. We're all in our twenties so technically, we're all adults.
This has nothing to do with COVID. If you're timid, you can hide and never leave the house. I don't know if I chose the right place to ask this but we're not allowed to discuss this subject becuase it's perceived as tantamount to harassment. Is university not the place where people should overcome such personal hindrances?
And I hate online meetings, I think the world is split in this regard but if you want to meet online just to avoid stress then what makes you think you're qualified to obtain a university degree?
And good-luck trying to produce a publishable report in these conditions.
Am I being too harsh? If you get stressed easily, you will never improve if you always run away from it.
EDIT: I didn't mention that I am slightly autistic. I have aspergers. I've been struggling all my life. But I won't let my autism hinder me. Nor should anyone. I would like to apologise to the people I offended. Noone should be forced. You should force yourselves. I forced myself and I discover new worlds. (For example I was afraid but went to university nevertheless).
Not a single person agreed with me though. I'm confused.
