Over the years, students have claimed that I was too hard, hated them personally, was trying to date them or their mother, and even that they were failed because their team beat my favorite team. But the new claim surprised the shit out of me.
Apparently, I’m a racist. Last term, I was hauled into the chair’s office and informed that two students had leveled that claim. The reason was that in my Intro to Hamster Fur Weaving class I demonstrated that old patterns of racial behavior between differing groups of hamsters still exist. I asked them to research and discuss this in light of current events in hamster communities.
It did not matter that the students were never there and could not pass. All that mattered was that a claim was filed. I was informed that my position was at risk and that every move I made would be watched. Well watch this. I have invited a large L Lesbian to the class next week to talk about gender expectations in hamster communities.
I`m thinking about showing up for that class in drag.
