Support Trans Professor Targeted by Slander and Terroristic Threats

This petition had 147 supporters


Rachel McKinnon is currently undergoing her fourth slanderous attack for being a trans professor.  The most recent attack started when she posted a YouTube video stating she loved her mother, and thanking her mother for the love she received.  She also expressed her concern and willingness to be there for people in need of support.  In response, a group of bigoted bloggers started a campaign whose followers have been slandering her with claims that she is a pedophile, a homophobe, a misogynist, and a threat to students.  They have called for her to be fired, and have threatened to release contact details to a wide audience to promote violence against her person.  These threats and intimidation are aimed at silencing people who care about basic human dignity and respect for all people.  Since the attack has centered on the College of Charleston's social media, we ask that the administration responds through social media. Yet, don't take my word for how unfair this attack has been.  Instead, watch the video that has generated such vile treatment of Rachel.
