“Gamma Alpha Ypsilon (GAY), an unofficial gay rights student group, is responsible for pushing the university to hold meetings about campus speakers”
Isn’t it funny how liberal student groups never have to deal with things like this? It always goes in only one direction.
The Washington Examiner reports:
University sending ‘equity officer’ to investigate conservative group over Ben Shapiro speech
Baylor University, a Baptist university in Texas, has arranged to have an “equity officer” investigate the motivations behind Young Americans for Freedom’s decision to host conservative commentator Ben Shapiro on campus in November.
According to a press release from the Baylor chapter of YAF, Gamma Alpha Ypsilon (GAY), an unofficial gay rights student group, is responsible for pushing the university to hold meetings about campus speakers. GAY was denied official charter status earlier this year following a May decision by the Board of Regents to uphold a ban on “advocacy groups which promote understandings of sexuality that are contrary to biblical teaching.”
The Baylor chapter of YAF claimed that the school’s president, Dr. Linda Livingstone, approached GAY to say that she was on its side — a contradiction of the ruling by the Board of Regents. Shortly after this meeting, YAF says, they were contacted by the school’s director of student activities to arrange meetings with GAY.
YAF Chair Zachary Miller said he was told the meetings would be “co-facilitated” by Brittney Wardlaw, Baylor’s manager of equity and civil rights. According to the faculty profile for Wardlaw, she “conducts investigations for claims related to discrimination and harassment around protected characteristics such as gender, race, ethnicity, disability, and veteran status. She also educates faculty, staff, and students on topics including implicit bias, explicit bias, and diversity.”
