It is harmful to unfairly weaponize growing children,” said one critic.

“free speech?” a third opinion. “I don’t like what he said, but was trying to take him out for a tweet?”
“We extoll the tenderness of boys and any born male, then wonder why they are such harsh lovers, fathers, friends, etc. All for some imaginary gender binary that serves no one.”
What do you say, Roomies? Should Robinson have been fired? Or does free speech protect them from tweeting controversial content?
