    Women Against Free Speech? | RealClearPolitics

    Majorities of students polled said they support both free speech and "inclusion and diversity." When asked which is more important, 53 percent said inclusion and diversity, and only 46 percent said free speech.
    What I found most striking -- the numbers that stood out for me -- was the difference between men and women. Among men, 61 percent favored free speech. But only 35 percent of women did so. That's a result I certainly hadn't expected.

    So ladies, what gives?

    The poll question sets up a weird, artificial dichotomy, doesn't it?

    While granted, those who scream "Inclusion & Diversity" (oy) are often the same people who are willing to shut down speech, "Inclusion & Diversity" (oy) and Freedom of Speech are not mutually exclusive. They are not opposites. They can exist within the same universe simultaneously.

    I wonder what the poll results would have looked like if one of the answers could have been "both".

    Opposition that successfully limits diversity and inclusion, as we have seen in the past, operates to prevent free speech. History is full of small groups of people who pretended to speak for the many, giving assurances that everybody was happy with their lot without asking.

    Now that there has been an effort to foster diversity and inclusion, more voices are being heard that have been kept silent in the past. It's wonderful to see that people all over the world and of all backgrounds now have an opportunity to speak their minds and they are taking it.

    It's not a question of being denied the microphone. It's simply that everyone gets to speak and then has to yield it to the next person.

    The orange whore does not work for the people of this country unless they are billionaires or phony, whiny "Christians" with their thumbs up their butts. I think that you are sore because more people in this country are stepping up to the microphone, and they aren't all male, they aren't all white, they aren't all straight, and they aren't all Protestant fundies, and they aren't all lining up to kiss the orange whore's ass or that of some TV evangelist.

    What female problem? Stop flicking your private parts around and zip up.

    Working for Americans like you is not the same as working for all Americans, not even close. In fact, he is working against many Americans. I have no ties to the European continent, moron, except for the fact that it is populated by human beings, of which I am one and is the source of many cultural traditions that I celebrate as part of my heritage.
