In yet another example of how social justice warriors are quickly ruining higher education, the College Fix reports that a University of Utah business professor has been referred for disciplinary action after committing the horrible crime of…assigning too many books written by male authors. This situation inspired one of the professor’s students to report the teacher, accusing him of creating a “hostile learning environment” with his sexist selection of texts.
“I believe it to no longer be necessary when teaching the foundations of our country’s economic system and those who helped build [its] ideals to be presented in conjunction with their sexist beliefs that have already planted their roots within our global and local communities,” the student wrote in her complaint.
You think this girl had pink hair or blue?
“Many of these figures are of great importance,” the student continued. “But at what cost do we continue to plant the seed of sexism in the minds of individuals? But especially in a course and college that is already deemed to be a ‘boys club,’ continuing those teachings, and those teachings being delivered by a professor of [his] character is dangerous.
“As a top university in the nation, I believe we have a duty to lead by example,” the student wrote. “Pave a new path and right the wrongs of those before us. Some may argue enduring this type of behavior is what needs to be done to play in the ‘big leagues’ of male-dominated fields, such as business. And I can agree to play the game to some degree, but if an opportunity to help change the game presents itself, you take it. [My] professor’s behavior and certain choice of text have greatly affected me both emotionally and academically.”
What about her leg hair? Considerable stubble, or the full Chewbacca?
Okay, but to be fair, this student was not just angry about the professor’s selection of books, she was also angry about a “sexist” remark he made in class. So let’s review that incident and make sure we don’t need to run this professor out of town on a rail car.
Kat Timph at National Review has the run-down:
As for “sexist” comments, one example listed in the report occurred during a discussion about how robots will replace people’s jobs in the future: The professor allegedly said that he will be “retired living in Tahiti surrounded by 40–45 beautiful women” when this happens. When a student asked why he’d picked Tahiti, he reportedly responded that “that’s where most of the available women are, at least from what I’ve heard. I also don’t like the competition on the other islands.”
“Not only did Professor willingly and openly objectify women, but he also objectified women of color,” the complaint stated. “Women of another culture.”
There has to be a breaking point soon, no? One way or the other? We can’t go on like this, it’s just too loony.
