The Thought Police are out there and they seem to congregate in academia.
If you don’t have the ‘right’ ideology they’ll come after you.
That’s what happened to a libertarian student that was a religious studies major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
Lake Ingle faced the prospect of not graduating in May because he pushed back against the assertions of a feminist professor.
The class was called ‘Christianity 481: Self, Sin, and Salvation’ and is a requirement for graduation from Ingle’s program.
On Feb. 28, professor Alison Downie held a lecture where she allegedly asked only women to speak after played a 15-minute Ted Talk video of transgender ex-pastor Paula Stone Williams. Williams discussed the ‘reality’ of ‘mansplaining,’ ‘sexism from men,’ and ‘male privilege.’
Oh, here we go…
After waiting for the women in the class to speak up, Ingle decided to give the consensus view of actual scientists — biologists say that there are only two genders.
That didn’t sit well with his professor.
She kicked him out of class and told him not to return.
The university has reversed the professor’s ban on Ingle.
Lake Ingle, a religious studies major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, was kicked out of Christianity class earlier this month for saying there are only two genders. He is now allowed back in.
IUP President Michael Driscoll announced at a press conference Monday his decision to go against Professor Alison Downie’s controversial request to ban Ingle from class for “disruptive behavior.”
Watch Ingle on Tucker Carlson’s show before the university made their decision:
Driscoll said he is “disappointed” in how the university handled the situation, adding it had “fallen short” of devotion to the First Amendment.
Ingle considers the end to his 18-day exile a victory.
“I’m happy I can get back to class and graduate on time,” Ingle told Fox News. “I was surprised the president stepped in before the ruling but glad he made the right choice.”
What does the future hold for Ingle?
Ingle is now set to graduate and hopes to one day become a professor.
“When you see that kind of misuse of intellectual power, you want to be the person that comes back and does it responsibly and with morals,” Ingle said. “Instead of being the purveyor of your ideology, you can be an educator.”
Downie did not respond to request for comment.

Good luck, Lake Ingle!
That’s quite the fight you have ahead of you.
But, bro, you can do this!
And the students will be much better for it.

Why be average? It’s so overrated.
Everyone does that.
