Teacher Suspended For Over 130 Days For Being Heterosexual
Can you homeschool college? It seems these stories are becoming more and more common as Liberals completely take over higher education. Oregon, Pacific University Professor, Richard Paxton, found out the hard way that you can't say anything about gender/sexuality without being punished by "woke" liberals. Paxton is a psychology teacher that dared to talk about sexuality and gender, topics that are super relevant to the field. After Paxton told his story a student became offended and reported him. Paxton is now fighting for his job over an innocent story that was mean to be a segway into gender and sexuality.
"The story, which Paxton says he’s told before without incident, was meant to illustrate the psychological schema theory of how the mind works, particularly Jean Piaget’s notion that schemas develop through a process of assimilation and accommodation. Paxton says that gender is one of the most studied aspects of schema theory, in that humans quickly distinguish between male and female, so he told his students how he and some old graduate school friends once got a surprise after attending a meeting of the American Educational Research Association in New Orleans.
Looking for a bar to listen to some jazz music after a good dinner, the all-male group headed to a promising spot across the street, Paxton wrote in a summary of the story provided by DesCamp. “One of the things that got our attention was a group of frankly rather fine-looking ladies standing out front smoking. ‘Looks promising,’ we said.” Yet upon getting closer to “where these ladies in short-shorts were still hanging out smoking, we noticed a sign above the door. It said: ‘Y’all come in. World’s Best Female Impersonators.’”
Suddenly, “our attitudes changed. Our schemas were put in disequilibrium,” Paxton said. “A few nervous comments were exchanged and we quickly decided to go somewhere else.”
Paxton "was told that if he didn’t resign, he would be publicly investigated and then fired."
This is the insane level we have reached in this country. Paxton did not do anything more than admit that he was a straight male, uninterested in drag queens. But in this cancel culture where you can no longer be honest, he is being punished. They tried to strongarm him into quitting but he knew he has done nothing wrong. This is ridiculous that we have gotten to this level where you can't say you are not interested in transgendered/drag queens.
