Universities Strive for Diversity in Everything but Opinion

Originally published under the title “How Cultural Relativism on Campus Has Chilled Freedom of Expression.” My seminar students at McGill University told me that you can’t say anything at this university without being accused of being sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, fascist, or racist, and then being threatened with punitive measures.
