Youth Protecting Youth: On offense and harassment

This post was written for Youth Protecting Youth by ypyvicepresident. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

Two of our members have an opinion piece in this week’s issue of The Martlet (UVic’s student paper):

http://martlet.ca/martlet/article/offended-not-harassed/

“We must challenge ourselves to examine the truth of any claim made. Let us ask if ideas are true, not if they’re offensive, and debate ideas in an open, intellectual fashion. This way we will find out false ideas and dismiss them. The truth may sometimes be offensive, but speaking truth isn’t harassment, and suppressing it doesn’t make it any less true.”
