Ex-Portland State professor who quit because college was too woke reveals he was told to 'f**k off' by students and faculty for 'inflicting trauma by asking them questions' Peter Boghossian was a full-time assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University for 10 years until his scathing public resignation letter in September, in which he called it a 'social justice factory' that drives 'intolerance of divergent beliefs.' But Boghossian's chapter with the university seems far from over. On Tuesday, he claimed to have been confronted by students and faculty who allegedly told him to 'f*** off.' 'Today, faculty and students in Portland State University's sociology department confronted me. They claimed that I was inflicting trauma on people by asking questions,' Boghossian wrote in a tweet. It is unclear what led to the confrontation or what kind of questions Boghossian was asking. DailyMail.com has reached out to him for comment. .
