Precisely. They can call you whatever they want, say whatever they want, TEACH whatever they want, and not have a thing happen to them, no matter how many people complain. Case in point: I had a English Lit professor who also taught Women's Lib (oh joy). I have ALWAYS loved English classes be they writing, reading, whatever, but this woman nearly ruined my love of English anything classes because she brought her personal politics to class and turned the English Lit class into a feminist movement and acted as though it was just another Women's Lib class. She forced us to read just about every book and short story she could find either on female circumcision or some other form of abuse toward women and then "discussed" them with us (discuss meaning you either agreed with her point of view, or she made your life miserable for the remainder of the term, and you ran the risk of failing her class, and it didn't matter if you were a woman or a man in the class. In fact, if you were a woman who disagreed with her, god help you!). At the end of term, we had to fill out useless evaluations on her. I say useless because it didn't matter how much we berated her teaching methods and class material and subject matter, she was going to be in that teaching position until the day she died.
So, to the OP: At the college level, they can say and do whatever they want. All you can do is spout their BS back at them in order to pass the class. But then, that's "education" these days no matter what grade level you're at. Teachers aren't interested in teaching students. They just want the material spat back at them, and if you have an essay, just tell them what they want to hear and you're guaranteed at least a B if not higher.
