Sheridan Merrick started a petition to fire a tenured Professor, Camille Paglia, from the University of the Arts for her dissenting views on how best to accommodate transgender individuals and to handle cases of sexual assault.

Professor Camille Paglia is the author of Sexual Personae; Free Women, Free Men; Vamps & Tramps; Break, Blow, Burn; and Glittering Images, books of breathtaking scope and towering erudition on art, feminism, politics, sex, and education. Professor Camille Paglia's positions are thoughtful, nuanced, provocative, but never unfair or unnecessarily cruel.

Here are a few short videos of who she is and what she stands for.

University professors have tenure precisely to protect both the professors and their intellectual integrity against political pressure from both establishments and mobs. UArts must stand up for Camille Paglia's right to think, speak, and write freely.

Please sign this petition if you agree that UArts should allow Professor Camille Paglia to:

  1. Continue her work at UArts without change,
  2. Debate and answer questions from the students who disagree with her in an undisrupted setting.
