Half of universities regulate ‘offensive’ speech

Data published today shows almost half of universities now have policies in place which regulate speech on transphobia and transgenderism, compared to a third last year. Almost one ban per week is being imposed on “offensive” material, events or speakers at universities, according to figures uncovered by online magazine Spiked as part of its annual Free Speech University Rankings (FSUR). It found that 81 bans have been created in the past three academic years – equal to almost one for every week in term time.
