Duke University Students Launch Campaign to Disinvite Law Prof Over Her LGBT Opinions
“The LGBTQ+ community at Duke is adamant that having a speaker who espouses such views come to campus would be ‘dangerous’ for them.”
From the sound of the article, the students won. Professor Alvare has already said she is ‘done’ with the event.

Cancel Culture comes for George Mason University professor
A group of students at Duke University released an open plea insisting that a professor with whom they disagreed be disinvited from a law school event.
In the plea sent to law school Dean Kerry Abrams, students requested that GMU Antonin Scalia Law School Professor Helen Alvare be disinvited from speaking at an event, hosted by the Duke Law Federalist Society, which would focus on the “state’s role in advocating for children in the familial structure.”
The students justified the request by asserting that Alvare held “unapologetic anti-LGBTQ+ views,” citing the fact that she signed a letter of support for the Religious Freedom Act in Arizona. She has also stated previously that “marriage is not in the cards” for gay people, questioning the overall morality of same-sex marriage.
The LGBTQ+ community at Duke is adamant that having a speaker who espouses such views come to campus would be “dangerous” for them. Several Duke Outlaw members recently approached the Federalist Society to ask the group to cancel the entire event and acknowledge the harm of Alvare’s views.
The Federalist Society rejected such requests.
As a result, Alvare’s critics penned a letter to Abrams asking her to step in.
“We are writing you today, Dean Abrams, because we are tired,” the plea reads. “We are tired of LGBTQ+ people being considered inferior. We are tired of LGBTQ+ people being considered incompetent. We are tired of LGBTQ+ people being considered dangerous. We are tired. But we are not tired enough to stop having our voices heard.”
“Second, Duke has pledged itself to be a campus of diversity, equality and tolerance, and such an event undermines those professed values. Those values have been proudly displayed on Duke Law’s Diversity and Inclusion website,” the plea continues.

Why are we allowing people confused about their sexuality to run rough-shod over the rest of us? Moreover how can debate and discussion that doesn’t threaten people’s lives be threatening? If these confused people want tolerance, they need to have tolerance for other people’s views, otherwise they should be back in nursery school.
Notice that”tolerance” and”diversity, inclusion and equity”only goes one way -LGBT groups demand “tolerance” for their lifestyle but are very intolerant of anyone committed to traditional moralvalues
“We believe in diversity and inclusion, therefore you may not speak your opinions here.”
“having a speaker who espouses such views come to campus would be ‘dangerous’ for them.”
It’s worth remembering that the only people “genociding” the trans are themselves.
First off, they take themselves out of the gene pool: no descendants.
And they commit suicide at outrageous rates in case “long game” genocide is too slow for them.
Speech isn’t dangerous. Surgery and suicide are dangerous.
