Fired: For Sexual Harassment? No, for Criticizing the Policy

Glenn Ricketts

You read the title correctly. A professor at East Georgia College was just legally vindicated after being terminated, NOT for sexual harassment itself, but for merely criticizing his school's proposed policy at a faculty meeting in 2009. You can read about the details here, courtesy of our friends at FIRE, who these days seem to have more and more work to do. First Amendment Rights? Not when it comes to the SHI (sexual Harassment Industry). Never, never assume that we've finally reached the limits of Orwellian absurdity where this subject is concerned.
