5. University at Buffalo grad student Jessica Mason applauds student protests against Michael Knowles
GGS 109, as we walked to Clemens for camaraderie before demonstrations at @UBuffalo. I stand in solidarity with my students in protesting Michael Knowles' fascist anti-Trans/woman platform, as part of the #LGBTQ+ community at the University at #Buffalo.

3. Howard University English Lecturer criticizes Buffalo’s statement on a recent speech by Michael Knowles
“Support” is material—you can’t just say “support” and have it magic into existence. @UBuffalo spends as little time/money as possible on supporting students (hollowed-out counseling services as the most obvious example). As an alum: fuck your statement. Actually do something. https://t.co/y0QtXuh8P4

@PittTweet has quite a lot to say here. unfortunately none of it means anything. you cannot support the trans community while simultaneously allowing someone who has advocated for “transgenderism” to be “eradicated” to hold a platform on our campus. pic.twitter.com/5MQjY9Tn7I

1. University of Pittsburgh student claims his existence is up for debate after Michael Knowles plans to speak on campus
hey @PittTweet I actually have to transfer buses on your campus and would would like to be able to get home from work without being eradicated, can you not hold a debate on if I’m allowed to exist please? https://t.co/E7XU8rsKvG

Twitter user "boy strawberry," handle “arbyhotdog,” complained that he could be “eradicated” if Michael Knowles should speak at the university because he uses campus buses to commute to and from campus every day. Additionally, the user alleged that the debate featuring Michael Knowles would be “on if I’m allowed to exist.” The user continues to push the campus not to allow Knowles to speak.
