Professor Thio addressed Singapore's parliament, pushing for sodomy to remain criminalized.  She said it was like "sticking a straw up your nose to drink" and that "a human wrong doesn't make a human right."  The problem with her speech, though, was not just the opinions expressed, but the absolute disgust with which she spewed them. 

My question is this: does NYU bringing her in to teach HUMAN RIGHTS law affect your decision to apply there?

I'm not sure what my answer is.
