NYU students vs Professor Thio Li-Ann

I came across this news article, shared by a friend of mine on Twitter and Facebook, regarding some New York University's law students questioning, if not being opposed against, their school's decision to invite Professor Thio Li-Ann (who, fortunately perhaps, is no longer a NMP), as a visiting professor, to teach human rights law at the school.

The opposition against inviting Professor Thio evidently arises because of her avowed stance against homosexuality, specifically her support for the continued criminalisation of homosexual sexual acts in Singapore.

For those of you all interested, the link to the full article may be found below:

"Rights for Some People -- Should someone who teaches human rights back human rights for all people?"
