Free Speech at NKU Con't

This story gets even better.

A faculty group organizes a pro-choice club. A student group organizes a pro-life club and does the little crosses display. During class, a prof "invites" students to destroy the student display because it hurt her feelings. Cute.

Oh, yeah. And pro-lifers are (surprise!) Nazis:
"Pulling up the crosses was similar to citizens taking down Nazi displays on Fountain Square*, she said.

"Any violence perpetrated against that silly display was minor compared to how I felt when I saw it. Some of my students felt the same way, just outraged," Jacobsen said.

Tenure. It's a wonderful thing. Here's the prof's page. Oh, Cool! She teaches Brit Lit (I could see how this came up in class) and is the interim director of the Women's Studies department.

Kind of sad, but the first line of that women's studies page is victimhood: "Stop and think about how, or even if, women were represented in your education to date." Also, that font. Isn't it a bit "Girls, Girls, Girls"? or maybe it's '50s Greenwich village jazz club font. Of course that later became 60's "Girls Girls Girls" font.

*A few years back, the klan convinced some stupid judge they had a right to erect a cross downtown a Fountain Square.

Stay You.
