University: Free speech doesn't cover calling transgender student "Sir"

Rob ShimshockRebel Contributor

Professor Nicholas Meriwether is suing his employers at Shawnee State after being giving a written warning dismissing both the First Amendment and Meriwether's Christian beliefs. The warning was prompted by an exchange between the professor of philosophy where he used the word "sir" while addressing a male-to-female transgender student.

Andrew Stephenson those examples are not the same thing”

How not? Does someone have the right to be referred to by their preferred pronoun, or don’t they?

Andrew Stephenson i will also never bow to compelled speech or a totalitarian state, we are not subjects of the state. I will die free.

Andrew Stephenson those examples are not the same thing. Now go compel your SJW buddies to quit calling everyone racist or islamophobic or Nazi’s for no reason, or is compelled speech only for SPECIFIC people?? And yes someone calling me Ma’am is free speech.

I think…anyone who tries to force me into compelled speech is going to get a kick in the teeth!"

Would you also give “a kick in the teeth” to someone who insisted on calling you “ma’am”?

Or is it freedom of speech to deliberately use the “wrong” pronouns when referring to you?

It’s well past time to stomp these degenerates, their enablers and their sicko-Marxist anti-human ideology into oblivion!
…or, we can continue on the way we are…into oblivion.
It’s up to you.

Freaks…. Yes, I said it, and that’s exactly what these nutcases are. Enough of this… I will call any person what I see fit to call them. It’s time to stand up to this lunacy….

Yes it does, and since when do we take orders from Universities?
