Where to start, where to start? Please read the unbelievable story.

Professor Bonesteel (real name) made a comment about a common theory about artist Henry Darger's artwork of young girls with male genitalia. The theory was the artist may have been sexually abused.
So a trans student didn't like that and the student threw a sh fit so the professor made an apology letter with a research article with background on the theory that he may have been sexually abused that got the buttercup trans student upset.


On Dec. 12, when Bonesteel was leading a discussion about Chicago artist Henry Darger, whose artwork often depicted young girls with male genitalia. He mentioned the popular theory that Darger’s work might be the result of childhood sexual abuse — an idea that apparently frustrated one transgender student.

“The student said there was no proof that Darger was sexually abused, and therefore, I was wrong in proposing the theory,” Bonesteel said, noting that he agreed there is no definitive proof, but pointing out that it is a common theory among art scholars.

On the advice of a diversity counselor, Mr. Bonesteel wrote an apology for his “insensitivity” and posted it to a school website, attaching a research article with background on the theory he proposed.


2 days later another sensitive student lost their sh about a comic book's supposed anti Semitic "attitudes", and accused poor, poor professor Bonesteel (real name) of “racism and homophobia.” Also the student complained of lack of "trigger warning" about a batman comic book.


Two days later, the second problem cropped up in a class called “Comic Book: Golden Age to Comics Code when a student went off on a “long diatribe about perceived anti-Semitic attitudes” of Gerard Jones, the author of a book assigned to the class. The student proceeded to complain about the institute’s treatment of transgender and minority students and then accused Bonesteel specifically of “racism and homophobia.”

The student also complained about the lack of a trigger warning during a discussion about an implied rape in “Batman: The Killing Joke,” a comic book by Alan Moore.

The Dean of the college said Bonesteel (real name) was guilty of harassment based on gender-identity in violation of the School’s Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation.
And a month later the same student filed a complaint Aganist Bone steel on the basis of having been “troubled by the incident.” Leading to Bonesteel not being allowed to teach the stupid comic book class anymore. Bonesteel resigned.


“When I said the word ‘rape,’ the complaining student yelled, ‘Hey, where’s the trigger warning?’

In response to a complaint over that incident, the dean of faculty determined “it is more likely than not that your conduct in relation to this student constituted harassment based on gender-identity in violation of the School’s Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation.”


Sounds unbelievable, but it is there in black and white. Sad that we allow the sensitive to control a college.

LOL. It has to be a satire. The irony of a SJW being offended by such picture is palpable.

this is pretty crazy...a professor talks about the ideas of others, and this makes him some sort of anti-trans and rape loving bastard? why would you even be in the class if you did not want to learn about the material in the first place?

So when I go to a bar and someone offers to push my stool in, I don't know if they're just being polite or if it's a gay proposition.

Yes an accepted theory about a nasty piece of artwork and a stupid batman comic book not only gets the attention of the dean, also gets a professor to resign.

No trigger warning? Students must never hear STFU?

They were not offended by the picture, they were offended by the theory of sexual abuse lead to the artist drawing a vaguely trans piece of artwork.

I can not believe that people have the arrogant belief that they can not be offended!

What a clever way to attack free speech, if people can claim that they have hurt feelings, we must make it punishable to utter a word that could create such inward chaos!

Honestly these Orwellian social engineers deserve a round of applause, if we do not wise up, we shall only prove to them that the masses deserve their disdain.

Oh thanks for the clarification. Basically that person was offended by the idea that transgender people are that way because of sexual abuse.

Not the idea, the theory----there is a huge difference.

The point is the professor didn't make up the theory. The trans student wants everyone to be concerned about their sexual ID. No one has the grapes to tell the little darling that no one but them cares.

IMHO, the moronic students should not be blamed. They are dumb, stupid kids who do not even have fully developed frontal cortexes. I blame the cowardly University administration. They are being steamrolled by a bunch of snot nosed brats instead of actually using the absurd tuitions paid to teach the imbeciles.
