They absolutely have the right to bitch and moan about Milo. I did not say they didn't. However, the University did the right thing by letting him speak. These protesters should have challenged Milo to a debate and beat his scrawny alt-right, orange-ass kissing butt. Instead, they went outside and just shouted. And before you say it: that protester did not deserve to be shot and I am happy to hear he is recovering.
@21 People who use ad hominem usually do so because they have no actual point to make.

Again, this is about this march, not the fight against those who would take away a woman's right to her body, which is a fight I support 110%.
During the Civil Rights era we had marches about issues, i.e., they marched to end Jim Crow laws, to pass the Civil Rights act etc. This march was not focused on any real issue and hence, it was identity politics for the sake of identity politics.
If this was a "defend a woman's right to choose march" it would be awesome, but it wasn't. It was the "Womxn's march". Which means what exactly? That is my criticism. In the last decade the so-called left has abandoned marches based on issues and instead protest based on sentiments, like "we are 'womxn' or 'we are the 99%' ". If the failure of Occupy is any indication, this kind of unfocused political angst is not going to be effective.
Oh, and the real issues are important, like the right to chose, equal pay for equal work etc. It's the bullshit cultural crap, like defending that shitty Ghostbusters remake tooth-and-nail or whining about the size of Laura Croft's digital tits, that makes them SJW.

Calling someone mentally ill is indeed an ad hominem attack. Second, this protest was just about them marching because....why again? What exactly was the purpose? Because they are women? Ok..and? If this was a "defend women's choice" march I would 100% support that, but it wasn't. It was just an identity march for the sake of identity. That is classic SJW, i.e., the same people who believe "justice" means no hot female video game characters and changing the spelling of words.
And calling someone a "dishonest creep", saying someone "has no friends" etc are not effective debate techniques.
My position is this: this march was an absolute farce because of its lack of focus and appeal to absolute identity politics. If it had direction and a real issue, it would be great, but it doesn't and hence it failed. This is the same reason occupy was a massive failure.
Please refute the above with logic and reason or fall silent.

Hate speech IS free speech. And who the hell decides what "hate speech" is? Should Richard Dawkins be blocked for spreading "hate speech" against religious people? Should a radical feminist be banned because she is spreading "hate speech" against men? And why ignore the "hate speech" of the Black Hebrew Israelites who are just as vile as David Duke in their rhetoric?
Once upon a time liberals stood up for free-speech on principal. Too bad real liberals these days are an endangered species. Remember when the ACLU defended neo-nazis and their right to march in a largely Jewish town? Did the ACLU agree with them? HELL NO. But they still have their rights. Let all speech be free and the good ideas will win out. I don't fear allowing people like Milo, neo-nazis, or some of the communists we have around here have their say. I understand that they are wrong and most Americans agree. But you can't call yourself a liberal and support "hate speech" bans. if you do, you are a member of the regressive-left.

@6 Well said.
The regressive-left is becoming just as bad as the alt-right. We now have regressive leftists spreading rumors on the internet aimed at individuals who are not in public service. Sound familiar? https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/piz…
There are two kinds of fascism in America today: Trump and anti-Trump.

Please provide references proving that Milo said that. I am not a fan of his, but he does not talk like that...in fact, he is known to have a thing for black men.

Very good point. I mean, what is their issue? Back in the day when we had real progressives they would march for a purpose, like the passage of the Civil Rights act, Woman's suffrage, against overturning Roe vs Wade etc.
This was less of a protest then it was a temper tantrum against Trump. Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of the oange numbskull either, but this is getting absurd. Just wait for him to do something before you protest and then, make the protest about real issues.
But then again, judging from the name of this event, I think they may have been protesting the English language. I can hear their chants now:
"Down with Spelling!"
"What do we want? NO SPELL CHECKS! When do we want it? NOW"
"This is what dyslexia looks like! This is what dyslexia looks like!"

I am impressed. The Stranger asked that Trump supporter questions and just published his picture and answers and that was that. Do I agree with that guy? NO. However, it's nice to see they are showing the other side of an argument for a change without just saying "this evil white male cis straight Republican scum!"
Good for you.

So what do you have to say about this woman and her reasons on why men should not have a birth control pill of their own?

And before you say it: Yes, I KNOW MOST FEMINISTS DO NOT SHARE THIS OPINION! I'm just checking you for consistency
