If you haven't already, you might want to read over the charges against me. Click here for a PDF. Pay close attention to the second paragraph of the non-discrimination policy on the second page.
During several hours of meetings with Carroll College administration this morning, it became clear that the college is throwing rules at the wall to see which ones stick. They are having a hard time with justifying their accusations, as the same rules they are using to press charges are designed to protect people from discrimination on religious grounds.
However, Renee McMahon (Title IX coordinator) and Emily Weideman (Assistant Director of Community Living) showed an astounding lack of aptitude for their jobs. They had trouble understanding the concept that saying someone's actions are wrong is different than saying someone is a bad person.
As of posting, I am still suspended from school, as they somehow think that the "safety and well-being of members of the College community or preservation of College property" is at risk if I attend class. As a result, if I am discovered on campus, they will call the police to arrest me. I have already appealed the suspension. When I told them that none of this will end well for the college (nothing they do would make them look good on the news), Renee decided to treat that as some kind of threat.
So, to summarize: I am suspended from school, and am being harassed by two separate investigations at the same time, one based on college rules, the other on federal law (Title IX). Their own rules state that I cannot be suspended based on religion or creed.
This will be interesting, to say the least.
