The Ongoing Battle for Free Speech on Campus: Greg Lukianoff at the Museum of Sex
“The U.S. Department of Education just redefined harassment to make every single man, woman, and child arguably guilty of harassment in one fell swoop,” says Greg Lukianoff, who is the president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), which advocates for free speech rights on campus.
Lukianoff is referring to a recent letter sent by the U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Justice to the University of Montana that redefined harassment as “any unwelcome sexual speech.” The letter also stated that it’s intended as a “blueprint for colleges and universities throughout the country.”
Heads up – there is at least one four letter word early on in the video.
