Crazy! Feminists, Civil Rights Groups DEMAND Immediate Censoring Of Social Media

A coalition of 72 feminist and civil rights groups exercised their right to free speech and demanded that yours be taken away.

According to Campus Reform, the coalition recently made the request to the U.S. Department of Education that it not only suggests that colleges monitor social media but REQUIRES it.

The reason for monitoring?

To protects students from being threatened or offended by what's being said online.

And what are they demanding be censored? Religious slurs? Profanity? Pornography?

No, rather anything that could be seen as a form of intimidation towards women, ethnic minorities, and "sexual minorities."

The coalition especially targeted Yik Yak, a social media platform that allows anonymous postings. Two feminists groups even filed a federal lawsuit against the University of Mary Washington (UMW) for its administrators' “systemic failure to protect students from a sexually hostile school environment, from sex-based cyber assaults, and from threats of physical and sexual violence.”

Although abuse language is not encouraged, the University President Richard Hurley explained, “The First Amendment prohibits prior restraints on speech, and banning Yik Yak is tantamount to a content-based prohibition on speech.”

The coalition took their complaints beyond UWM and straight to the Department of Education, insisting that schools nationwide be forced to follow their demands.

Their statement gives “information about what steps educational institutions must take to determine whether unlawful harassment is occurring on these platforms, without forcing victims themselves to police these platforms, and a clear path that educational institutions must follow to identify and prosecute anonymous harassers.”

Technology and legal issues consultant Tracy Mitrano pointed out that “Universities are in a very difficult place. They are interested in being sure their campus is a safe place to women and minorities, but they are being asked to control things out of their control.”

Do you think this feminist and civil rights coalition is throwing aside the First Amendment in the name of political correctness?
