Indian Professor Booted From Post Because Administrators Saw a Video of Him Having Gay Sex

Some homosexuals are good enough to become presidents of universities. Other homosexuals are not good enough to even teach at them. Like Dr. Srinivas Ramachandra Siras at Aligarh Muslim University in India, where he is chairman of the Modern Indian Languages department. From which he’s been canned, just short of retirement, after students provided university officials with video footage of him having (consensual) sex with a male rickshaw driver.

“Siras was captured on camera having sex with a rickshaw-puller,” says a university spokesman. “It’s a scandal that no institution of repute can overlook. Therefore he was placed under suspension on February 9 by the order of the VC, Prof P K Abdul Azis.” According to the school, a “local TV channel barged into the house and filmed him and his companion,” though the Times of India says students were behind the tape.

Because he’s already nearing retirement, and doesn’t want to make the situation a bigger deal, Siras isn’t contesting his suspension: “Let them say what they want to. I am not going to offer any clarification. You don’t have to abuse back if someone abuses you. I am already on the verge of retirement and, therefore, would rather be gone than to stretch the issue.”

Which is too bad, because aren’t institutions of higher learning supposed to be the bastions of progressiveness? Yeah, no. What we have here is an intentional smear campaign against a gay academic. Nothing we’re that unfamiliar with, but disgusting nonetheless.

      This entire unfolding event is wrong and awful.

      I am also furious with my penis for being so receptive to the thought of an Indian professor getting it on with a rickshaw driver.

      ZENFLO – “I am also furious with my penis for being so receptive to the thought of an Indian professor getting it on with a rickshaw driver.”

      Come on confess, what particular image in your febrile imagination made your penis rouse from its slumber?

      Did you imagine the rickshaw driver buggering the professor or the professor buggering the rickshaw driver?
