Don't Mess with Firefly! How SciFi Fans Made a Campus Safe for Free Speech

It shouldn't take a fandom, though. We should be there to support free speech, even when it's not hung from the broad shoulders of a TV hero.

What a great video! (I know I'm ordering the kids off my lawn, here, but *why* won't Neil Gaiman get the hair out of his eyes? /grandma moment)

I agree the fandom angle shouldn't be necessary, of course; I guess there are just so many outrages, anything that makes action fun is a boost.

One sad thing is, I guarantee you that there are racist and sexist and homophobic words and actions flying all over that campus every day, and this is the thing that gets TPTB upset. Jeez.
