“…it was very upsetting to hear a UF Law professor defending and encouraging discriminatory and hateful anti-transgender remarks.”
I have no words. This is never going to stop. From The College Fix:
Greg Pingree was an adjunct professor at the University of Florida teaching a class called “Law, Religion, and Sexual Identity” when a student asked him a provocative question.
“It isn’t transphobic to think trans women are not women, right?” the student allegedly asked Pingree during a private Zoom conversation in April.
“It’s not transphobic, it’s just your view, and I welcome you to express that in my class,” Pingree allegedly responded.
Pingree then sent a copy of the discussion to the whole class, according to a bias complaint filed with the University of Florida’s RESPECT Team.
“Professor Pingree claims the recording and delivery was an accident and has since removed it, but it was very upsetting to hear a UF Law professor defending and encouraging discriminatory and hateful anti-transgender remarks,” wrote the student who reported the professor.
Pingree did not respond to multiple requests by The College Fix to comment for this story.
The incident was one of 18 reports filed since 2019 with the RESPECT Team, which serves as the school’s bias and hate crime reporting system.
