Transgender HSU Prof Escapes from Alcatraz

Famous annual race will include a local competitor:

Loren Cannon made a name for herself as one of the top female amateur triathletes in California in her age group. On Sunday, Cannon, a philosophy professor at Humboldt State University, will compete in the grueling Escape From Alcatraz race – as a man…

At Humboldt State, Cannon specializes in trans-theory, feminist ethics and ethical theory.

“I teach a class on transgender experiences at Humboldt State, so I’m pretty out there on campus,” Cannon said. “I’m involved in the trans and queer community activities, and I’m working to improve transgender health care in Humboldt County.”

    It’s never about sexuality, race or age on CA campuses.

    It’s always about being a good sycophant for HSU, where loyalty is rewarded with 6-figure administrative appointments….or face the consequences of having your employment rights ignored. And when you sue, administrators utilize Californian’s treasury to wear you down for years and years, making tenure irrelevant.

    To remain a teacher, you must be a staunch team player, hence, Loren’s sports background is powerful leverage on his resume. However, to remain a teacher, Loren must play by the unwritten rules and cause no problems for the adm. no matter what personal vendetta they inevitably dish out. (It’s not beyond some administrators to exploit a perceived threat to donation to threaten Loren’s course. Be prepared).

    Despite HSU’s primary function of teaching harmony ideology in a collapsing empire, Loren’s course will make important contributions to human rights.

    Bravo.
