    I had to check out this one since it is local. Emerald City = Seattle. Per the organization's facebook page they did not create these flyers and post them around Seattle. There are nearly 2,000 people following this group who claims to be "anti-nazi and anti-fascist".

    Lot's of anti-Trump stuff on their site, obviously.

    That's right...assume the worst because it fits an agenda although nothing they advocate for supports that position and they are openly countering it with comments on their Facebook page. It sure is funny though! #vivafakememes

    UK prof: Singing a Beach Boys’ tune got me punished for ‘sexual misconduct’
    By Buck Ryan

    "The University of Kentucky has punished me in a “sexual misconduct” case, in part, for singing a Beach Boys tune covered by Alvin and the Chipmunks.

    Under Administrative Regulation 6:1, Discrimination and Harassment, UK’s Title IX coordinator ruled that the song, “California Girls,” included “language of a sexual nature” and was somehow offensive, though no victims were identified.

    The same regulation prohibits “making an intentionally false accusation,” so the question arises: How competent is UK’s Title IX office?

    * * * *
    UK’s three-month investigation of my case revealed no student complaints. In my more than 30 years of college teaching, I have never faced a complaint of sexual misconduct from a student.

    As a former director of the journalism school, I know that if a student or a faculty member comes forward with a complaint, the university insists on due process to resolve the problem.

    In my case, I sent an email asking to know what exactly were the complaints against me. My message was turned into an open records request by UK’s legal office. A few days later I received a two-page letter denying my request.

    The dean who issued my punishment never talked to me. I learned about my fate in a letter dropped on me by two assistants just before I was to teach a class.

    My punishment in this case-without-victims bans me from receiving international travel funds and strips me of a prestigious award worth thousands of dollars.

    When I inquired about my due process rights, I was told by the provost that I didn’t have any. Here’s the quote:

    “There is no constitutional right to represent the University of Kentucky abroad. Nor is there a constitutional right to teach a particular class. Accordingly, the University has no obligation to provide you with due process.”

    As a result, I was convicted without trial of inappropriate behavior, which never occurred, with two women students. They wanted to defend me, but they were never interviewed by university officials......"

    See some of the links in the comments section. Apparently there was hanky panky with some of the students going on as well.

    So the professor may not be telling the whole story? That wouldn't be a surprise. Here is a follow-up article to this professor's op-ed.

    Looks like logging, commercial fishing and roofing could use a healthy dose of gender equality
