Discussion: Inclusivity, free speech, and identity politics

In light of recent incidents at Yale (see competing perspectives here and here) and University of Missouri and in the context of the broader ongoing dialogue on how to balance sensitivity, inclusivity and free speech concerns (e.g. Charlie Hebdo and censored campus speakers), and on the intersections between social justice and identity politics (e.g. affirmative action, balancing support for victims with due process for accused in campus sexual assault, etc.), a common complaint from all sides is that it is difficult to have a reasoned, civil dialogue on these topics.

As a forum that claims to be able to have reasoned and civil discussion on any topic and welcome all viewpoints, we want to put our money where our mouth is. We are looking to start an open dialogue on this topic. We welcome submissions of articles or personal essays (in the body of an email to submit.theteteatete@gmail.com) on any related topic from any interested contributors. However, we ask that all submissions be reasoned and respectful of other viewpoints. More information on our style guidelines and anonymity policy (for authors who wish to post anonymously or under a pseudonym) can be found here.
