UBC staff and students want presentation cancelled over concerns of hatred towards trans people | The Star
Jenn Smith, scheduled to speak on Sunday at UBC, is opposed to LGBTQ-inclusive curriculums, calling them “patently absurd.”
I'm concerned about transphobia at
. Jenn Smith is trans. But reporter
is now *retroactively* editing her articles so as to dead-name Smith as a "man who dresses like a woman." Why is Tessa denying this person's right to exist?
Any news about what trans speaker Jenn Smith actually said at UBC yesterday? There were many articles cheering on the censorship campaign. But when UBC stood firm, the media lost interest...almost like this really had nothing to do with the actual content
Awful to see that reactionary transphobes are trying to shut down a speech at UBC by trans speaker Jenn Smith
"In response, UBC’s statement says that hate speech is governed by the Criminal Code of Canada and anyone concerned that Smith will engage in hate speech should contact the RCMP." Bravo
for not succumbing to deplatforming requests. They're learning.
