UC Davis professor tells colleague protesting trans ideology to ‘put a gun in your mouth’

A professor of English at the University of California Davis recently was caught on video telling a transgender ideology-protesting colleague to off herself via a gun in her mouth.

UC Davis Sustainable Transportation Energy Pathways Coordinator Beth Bourne, whose X (Twitter) bio says she is a “mom questioning gender ideology in CA schools,” can be seen in the video proclaiming “trans women will regret it (vagioplasty) because they will lose their sexual function.”

According to Libs of TikTok, Professor Seeta Chaganti (pictured) immediately responds with “put a gun in your mouth you piece of shit!”

Bourne responded on X with “Good times @ucdavis as I exercised my right to free speech I wonder if @Chancellor_May or the @UCD_Diversity DEI Office has any plans to call this speech ‘hateful’ or ‘harmful.'”

The Libs of TikTok tweet notes that at the beginning of the month, Chaganti gave her students a few days off “in support of pro-Palestine protests” and encouraged them “to attend other protest-related events.”

“As a person who supports the cause of Palestinian liberation in my actions and scholarship,” Chaganti wrote, “I am cancelling class in observance of multiple walkouts for Gaza called for May 1.”

Chaganti also told students she would upload “some reading related to Palestine,” and that they could “take until Thursday” to work on an assignment about Confederate monuments. She added “feel free to consider the relationship between the Confederate monuments issue and that of Palestinian occupation and freedom, if you wish.”

According to her faculty page, Chaganti’s specialization is in “Old and Middle English poetry and its intersections with material culture.” Her latest book “Carceral Angels: An Abolitionist History of the Sheriff” looks at the “long history of the shrieval office from pre-Conquest England to modern America” and “argues that the earliest days of English law forged the triangulation of violence, whiteness, and property that obstructs liberation in Anglophone modernity.”

Four years ago, Chaganti was a signatory to a faculty letter calling for the disbanding of the campus police force and the school’s “dissociat[ion] from other law enforcement agencies.”

Just prior to Joe Biden’s 2021 inauguration, Chaganti said the January 6 Capitol riot was “just one severe instance of the opposition to President-elect Biden’s confirmation” and that it “does seem possible” more anti-Biden riots could manifest.
