I have. And, so has this professor, who relates his experience of defending traditional marriage
- one man, one woman.
In the past, I've spent time (as have many) ducking under the radar. Sitting in faculty meetings listening to teachers cursing Bush (literally), making the most sexist and vile comments about conservative women (why do they always pick on the women?), and not responding to the most biased speech.
I will not drag my beliefs into the workplace. However, if someone else does, I will firmly state that I disagree politically, and would appreciate their NOT publicly airing their political beliefs during the working day.
This won't make friends. It may jeopardize my getting a contract next year.
I don't care. These people need to hear - loud and clear - that not every teacher marches in lockstep with them.
