US professor wins $400,000 payout after refusing to call trans student a woman - https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/apr/20/professor-shawnee-state-university-wins-damages-trans-student
"A public university in Ohio has agreed to pay $400,000 to one of its professors after it rebuked him for refusing to use a student’s preferred pronouns.
In 2018, Nicholas Meriwether, a philosophy professor at Shawnee State University in southern Ohio, addressed a transgender student as “sir” when she raised her hand in class.
This prompted the university to launch an investigation into the incident. It found that Meriwether had created a “hostile environment” in the classroom."

Greg Gutfeld says he is willing to go to war against student loan forgiveness on a recent episode of The Five on Fox News. John Iadarola and Adrienne Lawrence break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: Greg Gutfeld Is Willing To ‘Go To War’ To Stop Student Loan Forgiveness: ‘You’re Paying For It’ - https://uproxx.com/viral/greg-gutfeld-student-loan-forgiveness-war/ "Greg Gutfeld is so opposed to student loan forgiveness that he’s willing to “go to war” to stop it. During Tuesday night’s episode of The Five, Gutfeld chimed in with his thoughts on the real worth of a college degree. Naturally, the conservative leaning talk show wasn’t gung-ho about higher education. Gutfeld described the college experience as “a six-figure cover charge to get you into the bar of life.” He then quipped, “And the hangover is you pay it off later.”" ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Ted Cruz goes on rant about seeing Mickey Mouse and Pluto 'going at it' in front of children, which has never happened, while on his TV show. John Iadarola and Adrienne Lawrence break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: Ted Cruz Is So Very Worried That Disney Might Start Showing Mickey And Pluto ‘Going At It’ - https://uproxx.com/viral/ted-cruz-disney-mickey-pluto-dont-say-gay-bill/ "Senator Ted Cruz is opening his mouth so that weird words can fall out again and this time, they’re directed at Disney. The GOP punching bag who was oddly mum on the question of whether he’d fellate another man to end world hunger is pretty clear on where he stands when it comes to Disney’s opposition to the recently-passed “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Of course, because this is Ted Cruz we’re talking about — the man who once “liked” a pornographic video on his official Twitter account — he had to attack the happiest place on Earth by giving us all a mental image involving two beloved cartoon characters." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Since the rise of easy access screen tipping and with the fluctuating economic difficulties, tipping has become a more prominent part of service job interactions. A TikTok goes viral when a woman questions if tipping has gone too far. John Iadarola and Adrienne Lawrence break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: To Tip, or Not to Tip? For Customers, That Is the Question. - https://www.nytimes.com/2022/04/19/dining/tipping-gratuity-restaurants.html "Last year, Anna Johnson found herself using an electronic screen to pay for a pickup order at a bakery in Phoenix, a normal enough experience at many food businesses she frequents. But this time, she was bewildered when the machine recommended that she tip as much as 35 percent — on cookies. “It just surprised me that they’re asking everyone for that,” said Ms. Johnson, 66. “People can’t afford to keep on paying more, more and more.” Tipping fatigue like Ms. Johnson’s is real, and it is widespread." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Its title, “Watch the Water,” is a nod to a favorite refrain of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which is centered around the belief that a secret cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles is running a global sex-trafficking ring." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
