But that isn't true. The link I gave points to it as a triumph and supports it's ends with comparisons to the noble past of feminism and the end of racism.Originally Posted by SIG
Further, it is a damn good legend.
Here is Brown.edu link speaking of the event .. in relation to their defense of their safe spaces.
So, if you had any reservations of believing it's truth it seems beyond reasonable doubt that the event occurred as described by basically all those who point it out.
Denying it at this point would be unfortunate.

Now you can continue the conversation you were having, with any corrections to your own position in regards to the truth of this particular claim, which now should be considered by all to be well established by multiple valid sources.
I would note that there is a name to the story, a specific employee that can be called to verify the event. So the idea that no news paper would have done that simple task to expose this often used story as bunk... well that is just a bad reflection on the media at large either way.
Anyway, carry on with the corrected "yea that happened and all but my point is valid for XYZ other reasons". I think you still have plenty of field left to play on.
