If Only All Progressives Were This Stupid...

June 18, 2013 Fox News reports on a professor at a Tennessee community college:
A Tennessee community college professor ordered her students to wear ribbons supporting gay rights and said those who believed in the traditional definition of marriage are just “uneducated bigots” who “attack homosexuals with hate,” according to a legal firm representing several of the students in the class....

A Columbia State spokesperson released a statement to Fox News acknowledging they are aware of the allegations.

“When the allegations were brought to the attention of college officials, Columbia State Community College began an investigation, which is currently ongoing and congruent with Board policy and applicable laws,” the statement read....
According to her faculty page, Brunton is a member of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Educators Network and lists diversity issues among her professional interests.
 It is, unfortunately, what I have come to expect from some academics who do not understand that class is not a substitute for therapy to deal with their own insecurities and emotional defects.  Let me emphasize some academics, because most professors who I have had as instructors or peers have demonstrated that they know what their function is: to educate, not propagandize.

Hell, I'm reasonably in favor of "gay rights" for most values of "gay rights".

And I'd tell that Professor to go do something anatomically impossible if she tried to force me to engage in any advocacy speech on any topic.
