Students sign petition to prevent Germain Greer from speaking at Cardiff Uni watch


    (Original post by YellowWallpaper)
    I've had a bit of contempt towards Greer ever since she suggested that a young girl kissing her father goodnight was a flirtatious act on QT. Still, I imagine hardly anyone actually read what she said. And even if it is scandalous. So what. She's one of the most famous feminists of the 20th century. Cardiff is a ****hole of a uni anyway.
    How is it a ****hole?

    Do you remember when the NUS started its no platform policy and people were okay with it because it was horrible fascists like nick griffin and so that was fine. And remember people,at the time saying that this would escalate to people simply censoring anybody they didn't agree with? And remember those people being told they were nut job conspiracy theorists... Yeah good times
    Or they would tell you that you were using the "slippery slope fallacy".
