Is Free Speech Doomed at UNH?

by Steve MacDonald May 17, 2017

UNH, like most universities, is weighted down by diversity curricula and all the anti-free-speech BS that goes with it. This handicap culminated in the very public unmasking of the  UNH Bias-Free Language guide that, among other things, suggested the word American might be problematic.

Notable Quote – Prof. Christina Hoff Sommers

by Skip April 14, 2017

A traditional feminist on the current crop of “third wave” feminism on college campuses: The women’s movement’s insistence upon adhering to a philosophy of “intersectionality,” Sommers believes, makes impossible any turn back towards moderation. “Intersectionality is the reigning philosophy in today’s campus diversity movement.
