Free speech doesn't protect you from being called a moron or a racist

Symptoms of "intellectual rape" include orange pigmentation and an inability to choose a decent barber.

Reader Christopher John responds to College Republican has a long time to live down essay comparing vandalism to rape:

Yikes. I have a feeling his ethics professor would fail his essay on false equivalency and non sequiturs.

Free speech means anyone is free to call you a racist it they want. It doesn't mean you can say what you want without any response.

What a moron. "Intellectual rape culture?" No people aren't calling you racist because you have an idea they simply disagree with. They are calling you a racist because you are supporting policies that are specifically designed to systemically treat certain ethnicities with more scrutiny -- a.k.a. the definition of racism.

Judging by the lack of critical thinking in this essay, I am guessing this is the kind of d-bag who says "C's get degrees."

I am all for free speech. Even hate speech is protected (but it is wrong and immoral just not illegal). But David Blondin has a lot of learning to do. Let's hope he is early in his college experience and grows a little over the next few years.
