ezs note:  This is a fairly lengthy piece, but you gotta check this paragraph out:

Instructor Kujawa told Sletten she had asked the male student in their private office conversation what he would do if the transgender student in class tried to talk to him. Kujawa said he told her that if the transgender student persisted, he would “break her face,” and added, “I’ve done it before, I’m not kidding.” He also mentioned that he kept three loaded guns in his truck. (Gail Schontzler)

I rest my case.
