uc davis cancels milo yiannopoulos event
Don't get me wrong, I am a huge proponent of freedom of speech and everything and this guy and his crew of bullies can go preach in the quad for all I care but the moment the university allows him to use facilities paid for in part by student tuition, that's where I draw the line. A public university SHOULD NOT promote hate speech of any kind, especially one that targets and hurts already vulnerable and marginalized folks such the LGBTQ community. You say freedom of speech but where's the line to be drawn? You can't say "fire" in a crowded theater if there's no fire. We all already know that there are limits to our right, especially when they endanger others. If you are thinking, a little bit of hate speech never hurt anyone, check your privilege and then check the suicide rates for LGBTQ youth and then come talk to me. I'm proud of the UC Davis community for taking the time and putting the effort to stop this guy from spew his toxic and I'd say violent words at our university.
