Did Political Correctness kill Free Speech?

This post over at the Volokh Conspiracy is right on target. Let me quote:

You can't think seriously about criminal justice and crime control without recognizing the racial disparities in crime. You can't think seriously about the causes of disproportionate representation of men and women in certain fields without at least considering whether men and women might on average have important biological differences that might explain some of this disproportion. You can't think seriously about what public health strategies are needed to fight AIDS ... without knowing the data about the demographics of HIV.
Apparently, Eugene was getting grief for pointing out that homosexual sex is much riskier than straight sex.

It's Harvard's Summers incident reborn: free speech for everyone, unless we don't like what you're saying.
