Law school reverse on anti-gay lecturer

There’s been a quick reversal by the NYU law school on hiring anti-gay politican and law scholar Thio Li-ann. Apparently, it may not have been the best idea to bring someone to teach human rights law who believes that “diversity is not license for peversity.”

As a “nominated Member of Parliament” in Singapore, not noted as a bastion of human rights, Thio gave a now notorious speech in support of retaining the criminalization of same-sex sexual activity. Her characterization of anal sex as being like drinking through your nose with a straw was just one of a number of choice epithets.

Why is NYU so drawn to repressive regimes??
