Los Angeles City College is being sued for religious discrimination after a public speaking professor refused to allow a student to complete his speech in support of traditional marriage. The lawsuit also seeks to overturn university rules on offensive speech by students.
A classroom dispute at Los Angeles City College in the emotional aftermath of Proposition 8 has given rise to a lawsuit testing the balance between 1st Amendment rights and school codes on offensive speech. Student Jonathan Lopez says his professor called him a "fascist bastard" and refused to let him finish his speech against same-sex marriage during a public speaking class last November, weeks after California voters approved the ban on such unions. When Lopez tried to find out his mark for the speech, the professor, John Matteson, allegedly told him to "ask God what your grade is," the suit says. Lopez also said the teacher threatened to have him expelled when he complained to higher-ups.
So are we Happy now, we truly don't have free speech any more in this county, mostly thanks to hate crimes laws and our bitching and whining that we find any language against us, as offensive speech that these colleges will not let anyone have free speech if it is against us. How nice!!! Just like in NC when those whom wrote racism remarks in the so-called freedom expression tunnel..
so what is next LGBTQIA, community what right so you want us to lose, Get a fucking life and a fucking back bone, and stop acting like a bunch of whining ass babies. If you can't handle being call a fag or dyke then stay the hell home and don't come out side at all.
Whenwill this crap end. Offensive language is still free speech, event the christian right has the right to speak against gay marriage if they wish. So get the fuck over it, no matter what they have the same rights to free speech as well they have the right to protest as we, just because we don't like it doesn't mean that its should be against any laws or codes of conducts in colleges, there are more serious problems on colleges grounds then someones fucking emotions being hurt over the following words..
FAG, FAGGOTS, BITCH, DYKE, ASSHOLE, AND THE FAMOUS OF ALL WORDS NIGGER..
FREE SPEECH WILL SOON BE Dead AND Outlawed IN THE US THANKS TO OUR OWN ACTIONS.. BY BITCHING AND COMPLAINING THAT WE WERE CALLED A FAG OR A DYKE OR BITCH OR A SLUT, OR A NIGGER.. GET OVER it, you CONTROL IF THOSE WORDS HAVE ANY POWER TO CAUSE UNWANTED STRESS OR harm IF THEY WILL CAUSE ANY PAIN TO YOUR SORRY ASS.
The LGBT and QAI community is becoming a bunch of whining ass babies.. Grow the fuck up words are just words, we controlled how we will let them effect us
