Prof ‘demonized’ by ‘militant LBGT students’

(CAMPUS REFORM) — A Chicago art professor has resigned, saying a “small cadre of militant LBGT students with an authoritarian agenda” created a “toxic environment” for him.

Michael Bonesteel—a renowned expert on comic books and outsider art who taught popular classes at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) for the past 14 years—explained in an exclusive interview with The Chicago Reader that he resigned after students repeatedly filed complaints accusing him of racism and homophobia because he failed to provide “trigger warnings” before introducing controversial subject matter.

Citing a “toxic environment” that “feels more like a police state,” Bonesteel alleged that student complaints to administrators resulted in him being told he wasn’t allowed to teach future classes on comic books, causing his teaching-load to be reduced to a level that would have rendered him ineligible for health insurance benefits.
