Hanna (and FP) in the Huffington Post

From Sexual Freedom is No Excuse For Sexual Assault, by Marina Adshade:

As a Canadian, I would like to take this opportunity to say I am sorry. One of our own recently chose to frame the punishment he received from his employers for his personal conduct as nothing more than discrimination against those with non-traditional sexual preferences. According this man, his accusers are women with whom he sought consensual, if perhaps unconventional, relationships who later sought punish him with their allegations. In a lengthy online missive, he argued that his particular sexual preferences are a human right, and as such he should be protected from professional discipline based on his sexual behavior.

The man I am speaking of is NOT Jian Ghomeshi, the Canadian radio celebrity who claimed that he lost his job because his employer found his preference for rough sex “unbecoming of a prominent host on the CBC.” The man I’m speaking of is Robert Hanna, the Canadian-born University of Colorado philosophy professor who was suspended last fall, without pay, after he was accused by two women in his department, one a faculty member and one a graduate student, of sending unwelcome sexually explicit emails.

  1. The title in the first line makes it sound as if Hanna was accused of sexual assault, which of course he wasn’t.

  2. I don’t know the particulars of any charges at Colorado; the first line here just includes the title of the Huffington Post article with a link to that article. The rest of the post is a quote from the article.
