NYU recently invited a Law Professor from Singapore, Thio Li-Ann to teach "Human Rights in Asia".
Thio, also a former Member of Parliament, is infamous for having strong views against homosexuality.
As expected, she is not warmly welcomed
by NYU students.
Thio has spoken in Parliament against repealing the law against homosexual sex in Singapore.
Her post infamous quote from parliament:
"Anal-penetrative sex is inherently damaging to the body and a misuse of organs, like shoving a straw up your nose to drink."
