After refusing to honour a male student’s request to be separated from his female classmates for religious reasons, a York University professor has found himself at odds with administrators who assert he broke their “obligation to accommodate.”
It's amusing actually, and the school is proving more obtuse than the student. When the professor refused his request, the student backed down "cheerfully" and joined the class. When the women in the school were told of the request, they were insulted. When the school found out what had transpired, their firm stance was to accomodate the [evidently ambivalent] young man and throw the insulted women overboard.
Very, very odd, and yet only a hint of what's to come with the competing claims inherent to our increasingly fragmented society.
