What are the college republicans DOING parodying SAFE ZONE, a VERY REAL and VERY NECESSARY project to help people who are transitioning into non mainstream sexual culture? People who are routinely the victims of harassment and hate crimes? People, who have been oftentimes been unable to completely express themselves to their friends and families for the first 18 years of their lives? SAFEZONE originated as a grassroots project to organize safe spaces for people struggling with gender and sexual identity. SAFEZONE has literally saved countless lives and is no laughing matter. Do you know what makes me angry about the perversion of free speech? If you want to say something offensive and stupid and make everyone uncomfortable, I will fight tooth and nail to protect your speech, but goddammit, you better sit still when I call you a racist or an idiot. That’s the way real free speech works, you want to pull a stunt that makes minorities uncomfortable and COMPLETELY misrepresents affirmative action? GREAT. Now deal with everyone else exercising their speech.
