An invitation to lecture at Oxford University was extended to former adult film star Mia Khalifa, after which she delivered a speech at the prestigious university. The invitation has generated debate, with some claiming she is not a respectable speaker and others claiming she is an inspiration to young girls.
Mia, who is currently a sports analyst, has spoken out against the perils of the adult film business and expressed sorrow about her previous employment there. She now speaks out frequently in support of women’s rights.
There have been a variety of responses to her offer to lecture at Oxford. She has received admiration for her bravery and willingness to speak up about her experiences from certain individuals.
Her prior employment in the adult film industry has drawn criticism from others.
Many contend that Mia’s participation in the adult film industry makes her unfit to lecture at a respectable university like Oxford.
Her former profession raises questions about the relevance of her message and the possible impact it may have on students.
Because of Mia’s insufficient academic and speaking background, detractors contend that she lacks credibility as a speaker. The educational value of university events may be improved by inviting people with experience and a strong background in related disciplines, which Mia may not have.
Khalifa’s invitation is also criticized for sending an incorrect message, especially to young ladies.
In the opinion of some, her prior work in the adult sector contributes to the objectification of women and might jeopardize attempts to achieve gender equality.
It can be interpreted as supporting or normalizing the objectification of women to invite someone with such a history.
On the other hand, many raised their voices in her support and lauded her for being strong enough to get rid of the adult industry and spread awareness among females.
Oxford University is very broadminded-Hope the management will concider her to be conferred with a PhD.
I heard her interaction with the Oxford Union audience.
She came out as a strong, independent, liberal young lady.
Anyone can make a mistake, anyone can have a bad judgement, the brave learn from them and chart a new path.
