Colorado Professor: Being Forced Out of University Over Prostitution Skit

Skit involved a pimp selling a prostitute into slavery, may have yielded a sexual harassment complaint from a student


University of Colorado officials acknowledged Monday that sociology professor Patti Adler's lecture on prostitution led them to suspend her from teaching her popular "Deviance in U.S. Society" course next spring—but they denied firing her or forcing her into retirement.

Adler announced during a lecture for that course last Thursday that she was being forced out of the university because her course's skit on prostitution was seen as a "risk" to CU.
