    Note that the workshops are funded by compulsory fees that all students (including White Males and Liberal Voters)
    Political correctness is reaching a truly ridiculous level.

    You don't believe in free speech at universities? Fortunately, we don't live under a brutal totalitarian regime like the Chinese do.

    Um ... you do realise that you (a self-proclaimed 'white male') are speaking out?

    Is he? Do you have any idea what he looks like? Compare that to blonde and blue-eyed fair-skinned ‘Aboriginal’ spokespeople.

    So let it be free, not funded by money coerced from students and taxpayers.

    A leftist condemning a communist regime? There's hope for you yet!

    Why should I not be also speaking out at the Melbourne University seminars the way others do?
    I am White Male I am Chinese ….who else am I? .

    By the way, the seminars are funded by Student Union that is compulsory for all students to join...is this what student unions are for or for taking care of all the students and improving student services and support?

    Michael said that he was a 'White Male' in an earlier post, so I'm taking him at his word

    Michael is paid by money 'coerced' from students and taxpayers - do you want him to lose his job?

    I am not paid to promote my political views. I am paid to deliver certain Learning Outcomes in the field of study I am involved in.

    You're still paid by money 'coerced' from taxpayers, which Capablanca-Fan was objecting to. And the workshop is presumably not about politics either.
