Springfield College Tries to Oust Professor For Teaching 'Men in Literature'

Take, for instance, Springfield College in Massachusetts. Springfield College sounds like the school Homer Simpson may have dropped out of, but it is not a figment Matt Groening’s imagination. It ranks as No. 27 on U.S. News “Best Colleges” rankings for “regional universities” in the North. But this middle-tier, vocationally-oriented, and very ordinary college is currently waging a bureaucratic war on one of its own faculty members, English professor Dennis Gouws.

On March 27, Anne Herzog, the college’s dean of Arts, Sciences, and Professional Studies, wrote a letter to Gouws placing him on “Official Warning Status.” Herzog’s letter proffers a good deal of smug condescension and a small harvest of details, but none of that will explain what is really happening. The true story is this: a feminist jihad aims to remove from Springfield faculty an English professor who has refused to submit, even after two years of nearly constant bullying.
