Lake Ingle spoke up and told the truth. He was punished for it:
The Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) student has been barred from attending a religious studies class required for graduation after pointing out that there are only two genders.
Ingle spoke out on Facebook:
“Later this week I will be defending myself and my FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS in front of the Academic Integrity Board of the Indiana Univ. of Pennsylvania against allegations of Classroom Conduct violations.
“The decision made by the AIB that day will determine whether I will be able to continue participating in my full course load, as well as graduate this May as scheduled. This is not transgender, woman’s rights, or wage issue. This is about free speech and the constant misuse of intellectual power in universities.”
The post was deleted after Ingle retained legal representation.
Think about how free speech is being silenced in a place where it should be celebrated with critical thinking.
Tucker Carlson interviewed Ingle about the incident:
Lake Ingle, a senior at the university, said he was silenced and punished by IUP Professor Alison Downie for questioning her during a Feb. 28 “Christianity 481: Self, Sin, and Salvation” lecture.
After showing a 15-minute TED Talk by transgender ex-pastor Paula Stone Williams discussing the “reality” of “mansplaining,” “sexism from men,” and “male privilege,” the professor asked the women in the class to share their thoughts. When no women in the class said anything, Ingle spoke up, challenging the professor on biology and the gender wage gap.
He told the class that the official view of biologists is that there are only two genders.
The feminist professor booted him from class and asked him not to come back. She referred him to the public university’s Academic Integrity Board (AIB). Ingle needs to complete the class to graduate at the end of the semester.
“You are barred from attending this class in accordance with the Classroom Disruption policy,” IUP Provost Timothy Moerland told Ingle in a March 2 letter.
