On July 15, 2022, University of Texas at Dallas Professor Timothy Farage tweeted: “Can we at least try to find a cure for homosexuality, especially among men? Homosexual men have anal sex, which can lead to a variety of diseases.” Three days later, the university publicly announced it would investigate Farage for his tweet. On July 22, FIRE wrote UTD demanding it drop its investigation of Farage, as his tweet constitutes First Amendment-protected expression. The university ended its investigation without further punishment.
