For anyone who is interested, I will take part in the horrendously titled “Free Speech vs. Hate Speech” panel tonight at 7:30 in the McAlister Lounge.

The panel will be moderated by Interim Vice Provost for Equity and Diversity Charles Martinez. Other panelists include Chicora Martin of the LGBTQA, David Fidanque of the ACLU and Margie Paris of the Law School. Yes, it will be a blast.

I guess I’ll be situated on the pro-hate speech side, considering how the organizers turn these things into strict dichotomies. Still, if anyone is interested you should come and check it out.

  1. So, Tyler…how did it go?!

  2. Timothy says:

    Rocks don’t bleed.

  3. Melissa says:

    Now that I think about it, you owe me money, yo. I’ll be contacting you shortly to collect that.

  4. Tyler says:

    Kudos, Melissa. You were always the team player.

  5. Melissa says:

    Gee, I wish they had asked me to do this…oh, wait, they did, and I passed it off to someone esle. Suckers!

  6. Ian says:

    Where in the hell is the McAllister lounge?

  7. Timothy says:

    I’d only come drunk to heckle.

  8. Danimal says:

    I’d make it if I could.

  9. Tyler says:

    C’mon, don’t you want to come? I took part in one of these panels earlier, which was titled “Are Professors too Liberal”, and I got to debate Chuck Hunt. I learned that not only does Hunt support gun owners but he also makes guns! That frightened me a bit.

  10. Danimal says:

    Not sure how “Free Speech” can be vs. “Hate Speech,” seeing as how a true definition of the former includes whatever may be construed as the latter. Yeah, have fun.

  11. Timothy says:


    Man, that sounds like a blast, better you than me buddy.
