Title: Liberal freak article The Ohio professor who's suing for the right to violate his LGBTQ students' rights

Ohio professor Nicholas Meriwether is going to court to fight for their right to misgender their students based on their extremist views about gender identity.

Please note, I am tempted to use “their” in the gender-neutral, singular sense to refer to the professor throughout because a.) they’ve irritated me and b.) my own view on gender identity and language is that, if anything, “they/them” should be a default to ensure that each individual gets to opt into gender identity rather than have it be assigned. Seem wrong to you? It is. So I’ll revert to “he/him/his.”

Point is, each person’s choice of pronoun is profoundly important to their identity; using the appropriate pronoun isn’t any harder than remembering someone’s name. You may stumble, but that doesn’t mean you give up and tell your friend you’re just going to call them something else.

Flipped around, can you imagine introducing yourself to someone only to have them just call you by the name they feel best suits you based on their views? That’s pretty much what’s happening when someone rejects something as basic as a pronoun, the way another person wants to be spoken to and referenced.

I haven’t tried running this logic by Meriwether, a professor of philosophy, but it’s doubtful it’d have any effect on his thinking. After all, any number of students he’s traumatized and internal university actors who’ve responded have yet to budge him. Instead, he doubled down.

Meriwether has teamed up with the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a far- right hate group that instigates and cultivates lawsuits with the aim of expanding the made-up concept of “religious liberty” as a positive right. Real religious freedom, you see, is a negative right—it’s the right to practice your religion free of interference. What Meriwether and his band of merry bigots are fighting for is the positive right to act on their “religious beliefs” even when it violates others’ negative rights, like the right to be free from sex discrimination.

like the right to be free from sex discrimination.

Did he exclude transgenders from his class? Does he refuse to let transgenders participate? Does he give transgenders failing grades?

No? Then he's not discriminating against them, sexually or otherwise.

My chosen gender requires everyone in the room to stand when I enter. Can I sue for discrimination when they don't?

If your right requires someone else to do something it's not a right. It's coercion.

Fags and trannies, get NO respect from me. The best address they would get from me is a nickname of Nancy.

My Godson mutilated himself in his pursuit of the impossible dream. He is not a hero, he is not a future star, he is not beautiful, and is a horrible author.

He is 28 years old and a published author. The problem is his Mother paid for the self published books for this genius. A new mortgage on the house, a little borrowing from the 401K, he is now a pseudo-female like magic.

I love my sister, and despise my bum of a nephew. Of course nobody but me will address him like an adult, he may....gasp.....kill himself. I would loan him my gun.

THIS IS A TAG LINE...Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.

Their behavior is a choice. Nothing forces them to act the way they do.

Now, they may inherit homosexual tendencies but they don't need to give into them -- no more than an alcoholic needs to give into his inherited tendency to drink.

I'm with the professor on this one. This is a pure test of power, the power to control the language. I'm glad he is taking it to court. I think he is likely to win in the end, and that will set a good precedent.

Queers and sex changers should be imprisoned or worse.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.
