CA Gender Studies Prof Resigns after Sleeping with Students
A gender studies professor who invited porn actors to his class and was under investigation for bedding down with some of his students has resigned at Pasadena City College (PCC).
Hugo Schwyzer, who had taught at PCC since 1993, admitted on his website that he had slept with some of his students, but now that he has resigned, the college has ended the investigation, stating:
Pasadena City College has accepted the resignation of Dr. Hugo Schwyzer effective Oct. 8, 2013. This brings to conclusion all matters relating to Dr. Schwyzer’s employment at PCC. The investigation being conducted under the supervision of outside counsel will not proceed any further. Dr. Schwyzer expresses his appreciation and thanks to his students and colleagues at PCC.
Only last month, Schwyzer asserted that he was mentally ill and would not return to teaching, and that he planned to move into disability retirement.
Schwyzer, who calls himself a male feminist, has written for the Atlantic and Jezebel. He taught a Navigating Pornography class and once invited porn actor James Deen to lecture. Schwyzer was arrested last month for driving under the influence after a young woman was hurt in an accident in which he was involved.
