College Warns Students and Offers Psychological Help Ahead of Conservative Speaker’s Event on Transgenderism
“Some individuals find the topic of transgender identity a sensitive one and may not want to attend this virtual event or engage in communication that may include trigger words.”
This is just another example of how the words of conservatives are presented as violent or harmful.
From the YAF blog:
College Sends Campus-Wide Warning About YAF’s Elisha Krauss Event on Transgenderism
A community college in Illinois sent a campus-wide email warning staff and students that tonight’s Young Americans for Freedom event featuring Elisha Krauss on transgenderism was “not being sponsored” by the school, and offered psychological services to those “triggered” by the event.
Karen Hlavin, vice president of the College of Lake County (CLC), begrudgingly admitted that the school was required by law to allow the event to go on.
“Speech that deeply offends our morality or is hostile to our way of life warrants the same constitutional protection as other speech because the right of free speech is indivisible,” the email said.
“Some individuals find the topic of transgender identity a sensitive one and may not want to attend this virtual event or engage in communication that may include trigger words. Students may receive emotional support through our Counseling and Psychological Services department or attend one of the upcoming Lancer Circles.”

This is a thinly disguised invitation to a riot. It should say “BYORG” for “Bring your own riot gear”, including umbrellas, frozen water bottles, bricks, fireworks, and gas masks.
