He feels pretty, oh so pretty…

Another collegiate experiment in compelled speech has come up snake-eyes.
When a philosophy professor at Shawnee State (Ohio) refused to address a male student using female pronouns–for the simple reason that the jerk isn’t a female, and it went against the prof’s religious convictions to pretend that a man is a woman–the looniversity issued him a “written warning” that promised dire consequences if he didn’t get his mind right in a hurry (https://www.nationalreview.com/news/university-to-pay-400000-to-professor-punished-for-refusing-to-use-students-preferred-pronouns/).
The prof took them to court, resulting in an agreement by the school to pay him $400,000 in damages.
Have they learned their lesson? Do they now understand that this is America, not the old Soviet Union?
Don’t bet on it. Respecting rights of conscience isn’t in their DNA. And college makes you both dishonest and stupid.
