A university pays $400K to professor who refused to use a student's pronouns

Nick Meriwether, a philosophy professor at Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio, sued the college in 2018 after he was disciplined for not using she/her pronouns to refer to a transgender woman, according to a news release from Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a legal organization focusing on religious freedom and free speech cases.

I said at the time that Justice Jackson will, almost certainly, have to decide cases in which is of sex, gender are raised.

Wokesters across the nation mocked and sneered at Sen. Blackburn. Who's laughing now? pb for one.

Wokeism ain't legal. It's un-American. It can't defend itself against its intrusions into the liberties guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.

Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson will have to take tap dance lessons to justify wokeness in light of the First Amendment. Blackburn's question was the most prescient of Judge Jackson's hearings!

    Liberals tend to be overly sensitive and conservatives tend to be assholes.

    A$$holes? How?

    Among other reasons because you demand a definition that you yourself cannot answer. I asked you about the definition of woman last month and still no answer from you. See the link below.

    To refresh your memory, here's what I asked:

    Answer these questions about the definition of a woman:
    At what age is a human female defined as a woman? 21, 18, 13, 12, other?

    Can a female be a woman and a minor at the same time?

    If a male is transitioning to become female, at what point are they a female and no longer a male? And vice versa?

    Is the ability to conceive a child integral to being a woman?

  4. by HatetheSwamp on April 20, 2022 11:07 am

    I can certainly answer your questions. That's not the point.

    I'm not going to be deciding on gender related issues as a member of the Supreme Court.

  5. by Curt_Anderson on April 20, 2022 11:30 am
    Obviously you CANNOT answer those questions about the definition of "woman". Otherwise you would have by now. That's my point.

  6. by HatetheSwamp on April 20, 2022 11:36 am

    Nice try.

    But, don't despair. Your side got your woke Justice. Bahahahahahahahahahaha.

  7. by Donna on April 20, 2022 11:47 am
    You have never answered the question "What is a woman?", Hts. You keep claiming that you "can" answer it, but you never do. You could answer it right now, but once again you refuse.

    This is an example of why I said that conservatives tend to be assholes.

  8. by Donna on April 20, 2022 11:49 am
    Here's another example. Don't bother responding unless you read the article.

  9. by HatetheSwamp on April 20, 2022 12:12 pm

    I didn't give my answer to the woman question as a matter of principle in response to your side's brainless, happily subjugated, Good German compliance with all things Biden Blue MAGA progressive, which simultaneously amuses and offends me.

    If someone wants to start a, "This is what I think a woman is," thread, I can't see how I could resist participating.

    But, you can't know how much I think the happy, brainless, willing self-subjugation of your side to Wokiness is the leading intellectual issue of our day.

  10. by HatetheSwamp on April 20, 2022 12:14 pm


    I'll get to the article, give it some thought and respond later, probably tomorrow. The free time in my day is ending.

  11. by Donna on April 20, 2022 12:53 pm
    Hts, you've had plenty of opportunities to answer the question, "What is a woman". In fact we had a discussion on that question in a topic thread about KBJ's Senate hearing where that question was central to our conversation, and you didn't provide an answer then. It couldn't be more clear that you're dodging answering that question.

  12. by HatetheSwamp on April 20, 2022 12:59 pm


    I think that I've been transparent and clear. I absolutely am dodging the question.

  13. by Donna on April 20, 2022 1:01 pm
    I agree that you're transparent, but not in the way you meant it. Everyone here knows what a bullshitter you are.

  14. by HatetheSwamp on April 20, 2022 1:17 pm

    Not this time. I've been mute.

    without having more information and without knowing the context in which the question was asked. Hate can’t answer the question, can you provide a definition for the word woman, Hate is simply trying to deceive you by saying he can indeed answer that question...but he won’t.

    There is no sufficient way to clearly define what makes someone a woman, so
    Judge Jackson’s answer was correct.

    Hate’s only answer to the question they asked Judge Jackson, if he is honest with himself and us, would have to be, “whoever believes they are a woman”, since he claims to believe truth is subjective. That answer of course would not go over well with his fellow Trump Republican conservatives who were asking Judge Jackson that question.

    A biologist might say, generally speaking a woman is a person bearing two X chromosomes in the cell nuclei and normally having a vagina, a uterus and ovaries. Naturally that’s not the only definition. Even in biology we have; XX intersex, XY intersex, True gonadal intersex,
    Complex or undetermined intersex.

    They tried to ask Judge Jackson a trick question in order to embarrass her but she outsmarted them and many of them still don't even know it. LoL !!

  16. by Curt_Anderson on April 20, 2022 2:15 pm
    HtS can define woman like I play professional basketball. I could be an NBA starter but I don't want to.

  17. by HatetheSwamp on April 21, 2022 3:19 am

    Stunningly all of you care how pb defines woman but not how the woman who will decide gender issues as a Justice of the Supreme Court does.

    Somehow, that ain't right.

  18. by HatetheSwamp on April 21, 2022 3:50 am


    I could not have possibly been more sincere when I said that Marsha Blackburn's "woman" question was the most important question raised in the hearings.

    There's much to be settled, philosophically, morally, ethically...and legally.

    "In a unique Zoom conference, a number of detransitioners enumerated the ways they said the medical establishment initially failed them when they transitioned to the opposite gender, and again, when they decided to go back to their natal gender."

    This is complex, as I'm certain you acknowledge. But, with people who have not
    yet achieved the age of majority...?

    Caring about children and adolescents never makes one an a$$hole.

    Hate wrote: "Stunningly all of you care how pb defines woman"

    Nobody even mentioned pb.

    Republicans and conservatives bellyache whenever it's mentioned but this is yet another example of why conservatives are stupid.

    Ketanji Brown Jackson answered the question correctly. If she had quickly answered the question as if she were a Jeopardy contestant that would have been the wrong answer. It's more important to have a thoughtful judge who considers all the factors than one who unthinkingly responds.

    It's been about a month and HtS still cannot answer my questions about the definition of a woman. Yet he somehow thinks KBJ should have been able to spout off a quick answer. I call that stupid.

  21. by HatetheSwamp on April 21, 2022 8:29 am

    But, the least stupid of us wish we could be you. NOT!!!!!! Bahahahahahahahahahaha.

    As I recall KBJ's answer was, "I'm not a biologist." What's so brilliant about that?

  22. by Curt_Anderson on April 21, 2022 8:48 am
    Because then KBJ told Marsha Blackburn, "as a judge, what I do is I address disputes. If there's a dispute about a definition, people make arguments, and I look at the law, and I decide."

    In other words, she said context matters – which is true in both biology and society. That's a pretty good answer for a judge.

  23. by HatetheSwamp on April 21, 2022 9:28 am

    You Good German, you! Bahahahahahahahahahaha!

    Of course context matters. The brilliance of the question is the query related what philosophy KBJ would bring to the issue, no matter what the context.

    One thing that no nominee will do is reply to a specific scenario which would set forth context...and rightly so.

    Blackburn asked a question that asked about a building block of the thinking that would lead to a vote on a gender case.

    And, KBJ dodged.

    And, Good German that you are, you praise it..

  24. by Donna on April 21, 2022 10:56 am
    You praised it too when you said "and rightly so".

    But you got me to respond, though, which is your objective in everything you post.

    You've got us trained to focus all of our attention on you.

    You're a classic narcissist, which is why Trump, who's a malignant narcissist, isn't as troubling a figure to you as he is to us.

  25. by HatetheSwamp on April 21, 2022 11:27 am

    Donna. I despise Trump. I think he's despicable.

    Our recent interactions here...all of beginning to convince me that there's a difference between Dems and GOPs much more profound than the issues we think differently about.

    I actually was criticizing KBJ with the "rightly so" comment. I was showing that, in addition to refusing to answer a hypothetical question, "and rightly so," she was even refusing to respond to a question that could indicate a piece of her judicial philosophy that will impact on her decisions on gender cases.

    More and more all the time, I'm disturbed by progressives' Good German-ism, always rubber stamping Blue MAGA leadership, and, more than that, praising it.

    As I've said before, the primary reason I'm happy to be a GOP is that the GOP is where there's openness and vigorous conversion, even easy a matter of course.

    There's clearly a difference between the political culture that you're a part of and mine. I'll take the energy and the openness every day of the week.

    Back in the day, Dems were vigorous. Alive. Now? You're brain dead, as far as I can tell.

  26. by Donna on April 21, 2022 1:13 pm
    As you know, I don't agree with the Dems all the time, which I openly discuss here as well as on Facebook. In fact I'm livid at the Dems and their flagship cable station MSNBC not only for their stance on transwomen athletes, but their refusal to air the opposing viewpoint on that issue, even from within the party. I also don't support affirmative action, and I've strongly opposed foreign policy actions of both parties in most past military actions to the point that I've taken part in antiwar protests. In fact I only recently registered Democrat (in 2020).

    I'm not a jersey wearer. I don't base my political opinions on what the loudest voices in the Democratic Party and the trans community preach.

  27. by HatetheSwamp on April 21, 2022 1:30 pm

    Right on.

    Of those here, you're the one progressive who could most easily handle the openness, freedom and dynamism that is characteristic of life among GOPs.
