Some have even arranged “alternative events” for those too “traumatized” by the upcoming talk by Wendy McElroy, a research fellow at The Independent Institute.

Female scholar critical of ‘rape culture’ prompts uproar at Brown University

Students at Brown University are in a tizzy over the pending visit of Wendy McElroy, a research fellow at The Independent Institute who has penned columns this year such as “The big lie of a rape culture” and “Campus act would hurt sons to ‘save’ daughters.”

McElroy is set to speak Tuesday afternoon at the Ivy League university in a debate titled “How Should Colleges Handle Sexual Assault.”

But some students at the school have criticized McElroy’s very invitation to speak at Brown. With that, alternative events for students who might be too traumatized, triggered or attacked by listening to McElroy’s arguments have been arranged – this despite the fact that McElroy is set to debate staunch feminist Jessica Valenti – founder of – during the event.

“But multiple students have said they feel the event devalues the experiences of sexual assault survivors on campus and goes against the university’s mission to create a safe and supportive environment for survivors,” explained the Brown Daily Herald campus newspaper.
