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.
Oh thanks for the clarification. Basically that person was offended by the idea that transgender people are that way because of sexual abuse.
They can find the theory offensive all they want, but they made a huge mental leap to assume that because the professor repeated it, that he thinks all transpeople are transpeople because they were abused. He was repeating a theory about why that particular artist created that particular work, no more, no less.
To get personally offended over that is to take it all way too personally.

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?

“When I said the word ‘rape,’ the complaining student yelled, ‘Hey, where’s the trigger warning?’
real life does not come with " trigger warnings "
