Man zegt: vrouwen hebben geen piemels, is transfobie, man loopt nu gevaar en mag niet naar debat.
A student, whose tweet that “women don’t have penises” led to a transphobic row, has been banned from taking part in a debate about free speech at the University of Bristol.
Angelos Sofocleous, a Durham University student, cannot take part in the Free Speech Society event due to “security concerns”.
The society said the student union had banned him from the panel discussion.
The union said it was “committed” to free speech but security was needed.
Mr Sofocleous was sacked from his post as assistant editor at Durham University’s philosophy society’s journal last August after he tweeted comments deemed by some people to be transphobic.
He wrote: “RT [retweet] if women don’t have penises”, linked to an article in The Spectator on the same subject, and later defended his views.
