This was clearly something relatively minor that got blown out of proportion. She has a right to determine what goes on in her class. But you don't exercise that right absolutely, especially in an ethics class where you are inviting discussion.
And McAdams of course piles on because he is the paragon of free thinking and balanced debate right?
It just sickens me that everything that goes on in today's world is put under a microscope and then blown up into proportions that are way greater than they should be.
I agree with the bulk of this sentiment. This is a non-story. MU and the teacher did everything they were suppose to do. I disagree to some extent with the not exercising that right absolutely (although I agree with the sentiment). In this case, the teacher is expected to provide a discrimination free classroom.
McAdams and the media should be ashamed to be making a story of this.
