    I think your link regarding Professor Patti Adler is a bit misleading… As of right now, her being forced to retire is a rumor started by students. There’s no way a tenured professor would be ousted like that without any due process. Also, she is not being investigated just for lecturing on prostitution… A female TA complained about feeling forced to participate in a skit where she would be required to play the part of a prostitute. While I think Feministing should be covering this situation, the headline you provided is completely misinformed. This is a sexual harassment investigation and I think for the privacy and respect of the student who lodged the complaint, we should wait before making such quick judgements about the situation. There is still a lot of information that has not been released to the student body and most of the headlines I have seen are a result of rumor. Maybe the University is in the wrong here, but I am going to wait until I have the facts to make that judgement.
