Remember Robert Oscar Lopez, the assistant professor of English at a California state school who wrote an essay for Public Discourse telling his own story of growing up with a lesbian mother, and defending the Regnerus study? He says that his job is now at risk.
Since my article came out, I have been through far worse than I ever thought would happen. My job is at risk, and worst of all, my coworkers received an e-mail from a gay rights organization with the title “COMPLAINT AGAINST CSUN’S ROBERT LOPEZ: GAY BASHER.” Soon I got e-mails from administrators. People really investigate claims like this.
Whatever one thinks about Lopez’s essay, this is outrageous. Because someone’s personal story doesn’t align with my views about gay families, I denounce him as a gay basher to his colleagues?
