DC: An Indiana University Pennsylvania professor barred one of her students from a class on Christianity for refusing to apologize for challenging transgender and feminist arguments.
Lake Ingle, an Indiana University senior, told The Daily Caller News Foundation that he appeared before the university’s Academic Integrity Board (AIB) on March 9 to dispute Dr. Alison Downie’s attempt to have him permanently removed from a class called “Special Topics In Christianity: Self, Sin, And Salvation.”
Downie sanctioned Ingle and tried to have him barred from the class for challenging the premise of a Feb. 28 class discussion based on a Ted Talk by Paula Stone Williams, who is a transgender woman. Ingle told TheDCNF that he objected to the discussion because Downie allegedly prompted the class to talk about “the reality of white male privilege,” systemic male sexism, and concepts like “mansplaining” based on Williams’ talk. read more
