    So, we have gone from being banned from speaking engagements to banning those we don’t agree with. That’s progress?
    Why doesn’t the NYU LGBTA community and its allies use this as an opportunity to educate, affirm and expose? Educate the university community, affirm LGBTA people and expose Milo’s fraudulence?
    Banning him gives him greater cred with conservative, exposing him diminishes his effectiveness.

    NYU is not infringing on Second Amendment rights by this ban. It is failing it’s students by limiting their ability to rationally examine and reject polemical speech. NYU is contributing to a culture of censure. If you condemn schools that ban pro-LGBTQ speakers you cannot applaud schools that ban speakers on anti-LGBTQ speakers, (unless they promote violence). Universities must promote the opening of minds, not their closure.
