A Nation of Sissies

However, three professors – two of them openly homosexual – filed a complaint of
discrimination and harassment, contending Kupelian's book was "hate literature" which "threatened" them and made them feel "unsafe" on campus. After a 21-0
faculty vote (with 9 abstentions) on March 13, the school's Office of Human Resources put Savage under "investigation." The full-faculty vote was rescinded two days later for legal reasons, and the three offended professors filed the harassment complaint. The three professors behind the complaint against Savage are Hannibal Hamlin, Norman Jones and J.F. Buckley. Jones teaches courses in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender literature, and Buckley has written "The Social Critic: The Rise of Queer Performance Within the Demise of Transcendentalism" as well as "articles on sexual orientation in Hemingway and Melville." In a March 9 e-mail to the faculty regarding Savage's suggestion of "The Marketing of Evil" as required freshman reading, Buckley wrote: "… I am not shocked, only deeply saddened – and THREATENED – that such mindless folks are on this great campus. … You have made me fearful and uneasy being a gay man on this campus. I am, in fact, notifying the OSU-M campus, and Ohio State University in general, that I no longer feel safe doing my job. I am being harassed."

Oh dear, he is "offended and threatened" that a Christian librarian suggested several books to a group of freshmen students, one of which was Market of Evil (order it at Amazon), which is a book supposedly on homosexuality and the negative effects it has on society.

So, we have this scumbag, recommending liberal books left and right, complain about being offended when the man didn't even utter anything remotely profane to him. Something is messed up when men are complaining about feeling afraid, to say nothing of homosexuality.

Signed,
