The University paid a professor it disciplined for failing to use proper pronouns for a transgender youth student $400,000. Although the university did not change its position regarding the professor's violation of their code of treatment of students, they felt it was in their best interest to make this economic decision for the University and settle the case.
The university stated: Since the lawsuit was filed, the school said, “it became clear that the case was being used to advance divisive social and political agendas at a cost to the university and its students.”
“That cost is better spent on fulfilling Shawnee State’s mission of service to our students, families and community.”
Hopefully this is not a trend to use economics to sort the rights of the LGBTQI community.
