It's obvious that the author of that article is a racist who is uncomfortable with interracial sexual attraction. Retrograde and disgusting.

Court allows First Amendment claim based on alleged professor retaliation for paper ‘harshly critical of … lesbianism’

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/10/17/court-allows-first-amendment-claim-based-on-alleged-professor-retaliation-for-paper-harshly-criticism-of-lesbianism/

The University of New Mexico offered a class and Plaintiff enrolled in that class. The subject matter of the class (“Images of (Wo)men: From Icons to Iconoclasts”) as set out in [the Complaint] was chosen by the class instructor, Defendant Hinkley, to spark “incendiary” class discussions. The syllabus assured students that “it’s quite clear that we do not expect anyone to necessarily agree with the positions and arguments advanced in our work. There’s controversy built right into the syllabus, and we can’t wait to hash out our differences.” One of the class assignments was to view the film Desert Hearts. Plaintiff, apparently taking Hinkley at her word as to the freewheeling character of the forum, submitted a four-page critique of the film Desert Hearts that was harshly critical of the lesbian characters portrayed in the film and of lesbianism in general.

Hinkley graded and returned the papers submitted by Plaintiff’s classmates. However, ignoring representations in the syllabus concerning her openness to differing views, Hinkley refused to read beyond the first two pages of Plaintiff’s critique, characterizing Plaintiff’s views as inflammatory and offensive. Hinkley returned Plaintiff’s critique without assigning a grade. At a subsequent meeting with Plaintiff, Hinkley accused Plaintiff of using “hate speech.” Hinkley told Plaintiff that it would be in Plaintiff’s best interest to drop the class. Due to Hinkley’s hostility, including her refusal to assign a grade to Plaintiff’s critique, Plaintiff withdrew from the “Images of (Wo)men” class….

^ It seems the Plaintiff won? But what did winning do in terms of making her whole?
post #2197 of 5616
If by won you mean gets a trial instead of having her case thrown out, then yeah. This doesn't mean she's out of the woods on the legal questions, though, as an appellate court could disagree anyway.

I have no idea what the damages are supposed to be.
post #2198 of 5616
Ah, gotcha. All this did was toss out the motion to dismiss and let it go to court?
post #2199 of 5616
Apparently it was a motion to dismiss and not for summary judgment, notwithstanding quoted language that really sounded like summary judgment. So she might not even get a trial at all.

But, yeah. The judge ruled that if her allegations are true she's entitled to damages, relief, whatever she's asking for. She still has to prove everything.

Being graded on political beliefs or even Socratic questions is an unfortunate part of today's "higher' education.

Classes like women's studies and black studies are the boot camp for leftist activism. Similar to youth camps for the KKK.

Learning something useful certainly isn't the objective of these courses.

Actually what happened is that some Marxist-Leninists introduced a motion condemning ISIS that was not satisfactory (they wanted to justify spying on fellow students and a bunch of stuff most of you would agree is too much), a new and revised motion will be introduced at the next meeting, the MSM (ha!, see I can do that too) just didn't report on this properly so they could give their fawning fans (you guys) their gotcha moment. This is AFAIK

Why is a student union involved in international politics? Would anyone care even the slightest bit if the British Student Union condemned ISIS?

When I was a student I had to move to another lecture theatre one week because some students occupied it to protest against Israeli occupation of Palestine.

They have the threat of war from all sides, rocket attacks daily from the south, but my differential equations lecture being moved should have been the last straw. Heartless bastards frown.gif

I certainly don't give a fuck, however student unions do debate such things, I merely attempted to give some context, allowing you to see how Vice reporting is, as usual, total bullshit.

But but but they were in ar-Raqqa for an all-access view of ISIS. Surely they know what they are talking about?
