Linda Brunton: Bonehead Of The Day

Linda Brunton Columbia State Community CollegeSimply stated, this woman is a coward and a bully.

A Tennessee community college professor ordered her students to wear ribbons supporting gay rights and said those who believed in the traditional definition of marriage are just “uneducated bigots” who “attack homosexuals with hate,” according to a legal firm representing several of the students in the class.

According to her faculty page, Dr. Linda Brunton (General Psychology) is a member of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Educators Network and lists diversity issues among her professional interests.

Of course, when she forces those dependent on her objectivity for their grades, that’s not close-minded at all.

    And this is why I will be spending a little more to send my oldest son to a conservative Christian college.

    As an alumnus of Columbia State Community College, and a former student of Dr. Brunton (I was a freshman, and she was not yet “Dr. ” then, as it was early in her career…), I am very disappointed she would behave this way.
    That does not mean though, that I am surprised. She has been in that classroom for over thirty years now, and I’m reasonably sure has long ago achieved tenure. As such, I expect she is accustomed to wielding considerable power over her classes, and unaccustomed to being challenged. Power corrupts.
    The lack of personal integrity has leeched into all elements of our society. We will see more of this behavior, as those who have come to believe “might always makes right”, continue to expose themselves.
    I used to like this lady, and enjoyed her classes. This hateful bullying was not evident then. Very sad.

      Some people assume risk originates with God. Other people assume risk originates with competing interests.

      It is dissociation of risk which causes corruption. It is instant gratification (e.g. physical, ego) which motivates its progress.

      The problem originates with people who either reject God or who have acquired a standard of political, economic, and social standing which mitigates risk.

    It is rampant.

    As for diversity, the liberal and progressive’s conception which focuses on incidental features to supersede individual dignity is fundamentally corrupt. It is because of the axiom or article of faith which we describe as “individual dignity” that men and women who engage in unproductive behaviors (e.g. homosexual) continue to enjoy liberty and equal rights in our society.

    That said, the principle of evolutionary fitness is not exclusively for a species as a whole, but for a class of individual entities (e.g. humans). The efforts to normalize dysfunctional behaviors, and concepts (e.g. “diversity”), reveals the competing interests in our world; but, unfortunately, it is often only by proxy.

    The terms and circumstances of reality are not set by an individual, couplet, or committee but by nature. The principles of evolution established by nature’s order are inviolable. They are not subject to debate or consensus argument. Homosexual behavior is the antithesis of evolutionary fitness.

    Perhaps she doesn’t understand the difference between normalization and tolerance. The individual, irrespective of their confusion, is normal and enjoys equal rights when capable of self-moderating responsible behavior. The homosexual behavior, on the other hand, has no redeeming value to either society or humanity. It therefore does not merit normal status and the motives of individuals and groups forcing its normalization are suspect.

    As for “bigot”, that means sanctimonious hypocrite. People who understand reality as it is and not as they would like it to be are not hypocrites. The people who support homosexual rights to the selective exclusion of other combinations (e.g. numbers and kinds) are the bigots.

    Dr. Brunton, as an “expert” in the field of psychology, should appreciate that confusion is progressive and is often the outcome of indoctrination.

    Dear Linda, uneducated to you means thinking without the restraints of indoctrination from government schools and watching the boob tube for morality lessons. Even slight power corrupted you. Morons, like you and your cronies, believe if they change the definition of words they can come to the same conclusions that existed for the prior definitions. You believe that your credentials validate your moronic thoughts. Your credentials were a expensively purchased upgrade of those “one of the best” awards given out in your nursery school. Stupidity has metastasized in our colleges.

      The facts interrupt her wild spin. She has incompetently characterized both “bigot” and “hate”, and wrongly attributed “attack”. She fails to distinguish between the individual and their dysfunctional behavior.

      • Tallyman

        She is an inquisitor of the Progressive Inquisition held on her campus . She damns with the words, bigot and hate, and punishes the infidel and apostate enemies of her gods. Facts are the enemy of her dogma.
