“many of us feel unsafe and frustrated that campus is allowing a RSO to put on this event”
The poor dears. Did anyone set up a safe space on campus?
The College Fix reports:
UW-Madison liberals ‘physically sick’ and ‘hurt’ by Matt Walsh event
University of Wisconsin-Madison students, faculty and staff feared a conservative event that criticized gender ideology represented a “hate crime against women” and would promote violence against LGBT individuals, according to documents obtained by The College Fix.
The Fix recently obtained bias incident reports through a public records request for complaints made against the Young Americans for Freedom event featuring Matt Walsh.
The event was about transgenderism and shared a name with his “What is a Woman” movie.
Students, staff and professors were left “angry,” “hurt” and “physically sick” at the thought of him coming to campus, based on complaints primarily filed before the event.
The documentary highlights the problems with gender ideology and was released by The Daily Wire and the conservative commentator (pictured) in 2022.
While graduate teaching assistant and law student Jesikah Leeper openly boasted about tearing down about 40 posters preventing the event and filing a bias report against it, others in the UW-Madison community were equally as upset.
A male student complained:
I feel [the movie] is better described as a hate crime against women, especially transgender women in a video form. I believe by allowing YAF to host this event they are not only spreading hatred across campus, I think they are also in violation of a few RSO policies and will create a potentially unsafe environment, similar to similar events hosted at other universities.
This same student felt “physically sick” while researching the movie.
“Upon researching this ‘documentary’ I found a wealth of evidence that this has clear themes of transphobia, misogyny, racism, ableism, and ageism,” the student wrote. “It has created a great upset within lgbtq spaces on campus, many of us feel unsafe and frustrated that campus is allowing a RSO to put on this event.”
