Students take to the streets in support of a local professor. They say the professor is being treated unfairly because he’s going through a sex change.
There are many places students and local residents could be on a snowy Monday morning, but instead, they decided to battle the elements in a fight for tolerance.
Student: “Jesus promotes love not discrimination.”
Students organized the protest in support of Professor John Nemecek. Nemecek says he has a gender identity disorder. As a result, he began his transformation from a man named John to a woman named Julie.
Drew Hinkle, organized protest: “I’m here to support Julie, I believe diversity is important, legally, I don’t see why the university let her go.”
