A Facebook Discussion: #ToMyUnbornChild


A FACEBOOK DISCUSSION ON THE LIMITS OF FREE SPEECH
This Tuesday March 20th at 6pm (EDT), I’ll be guest moderating a discussion on Irshad Manji’s fanpage and I’d love you to join the conversation. Here’s the upshot, last week #ToMyUnbornChild was a trending topic on Twitter and the idea was to tweet a message to your future child. Some tweeted some lovely things while others chose to use this hashtag to declare that they would kill their child if they were LGBTQ. While this story was posted on The Huffington Post and more recently on XTRA!, the people who have made these outrageous tweets haven’t otherwise been held accountable – or should they be? Please join me on facebook as we discuss free speech, hate speech and the limits of accountability.
