It seems Wendler is trying to “protect” WTAMU students from “harm” the same way than the countless examples that have occurred over the past decade or so, largely from the “left” on campuses. Why can’t the students, most, if not all are adults decide for themselves whether to attend the drag show or not?

My first experience with “cancel culture” in academia was when right-leaning groups tried to cancel a Bill Ayers speech which was originally intended for a small group of Education graduate students. Ironically the cancellation led to an embarrassing 1A lawsuit for the University and a bit of a “Streisand Effect” for Ayers that they had to host him in a larger venue to accommodate all the extra viewers who became interested in seeing what he had to say.
