Former MSU student sues school over suspension related to transgender classmate
A former Montana State University student is suing the school for suspending him after he shared his anti-transgender views with a professor in what he believed to be a private conversation.
The lawsuit was filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Butte by a plaintiff identified as Jon Doe.
Mathew Monforton, who is representing the plaintiff, said his client’s name is being withheld to avoid backlash from the public who may disagree with his “unpopular” views on transgender people.
His “unpopular” views are probably the same views that 99% of people have. But, that’s why they’re unpopular. The fringier, the better.
Also notice the whole thing happened because the “prof” (actually, a grad assistant) violated confidentiality. This is far from the first time I’ve read a story where confidential turned out to be anything but. When someone is trying to solicit “controversial” opinions from you, the sort that 99% of the people agree with but 1% who happen to be either media, tenured or ((())) don’t, clam the fuck up.
