**A note on tolerance:
I was very upset today to have 2 student approach me with remarks about not wanting to hear about other people’s sexuality, or asking me whether or not someone is bi. First off, it’s NEVER appropriate to ask a professor something like that. A person’s sexual orientation is their information to share, not mine.
Second of all, we are not in an evangelical, Christian school. We are also not in a bubble world. These issues are real, they are a part of our society whether you agree with them or not. The class is called Gender and Communication, therefore we talk about all aspects of gender not just about the straight people. At the end of the day, I am not expecting anyone to agree with everything that’s presented in class but I FULLY EXPECT TOLERANCE AND RESPECT. Everything that your peers do has had my prior approval, which means you should be able to find something of value from what is talked about. You are all adults.
