“The Vagina Monologues” Banned From Campus
We have not confirmed this with the Marquette public relations people, but since the PR people sent the link to the Post-Gazette out as part of “Marquette University News Clips for Feb. 10, 2006,” we see that as a confirmation.
We personally don’t favor banning any production, no matter how hateful, but then we don’t favor banning a Klansman who might want to speak on campus. The feminist “Vagina Monologues” types, of course, would ban anybody they thought guilty of “hate speech” in a second. So we shed no tears when they get the same treatment they would happily mete out to others.
We do think that Marquette should avoid any action that could be considered in any way endorsement of “The Vagina Monologues,” which would include using any University money to present it, making it part of any official University program (such as Mission Week), or in any way honoring anybody associated with the production.
Which is just the way any potential Klan speaker should be treated.
