"Earthy" prof resigns

Okay, so this is...a little weird.
A criminal justice professor at Grand Rapids Community College has resigned after showing a video in class of a man having sex with a pig, students and a faculty representative said.

A school administrator confirmed that Samuel Naves, 47, resigned Feb. 17, but would not comment on why he left.
I'm guessing it probably had something to do with, you know, the whole "showing a video of a man screwing a pig" thing. Probably.
However, students and a faculty leader said the resignation had to do with the video.
Shut up! Really?
Faculty association president Fred vanHartesveldt said the incident occurred this year. He said Naves was known for a blunt teaching style.

"His pedagogy was to teach real life," vanHartesveldt told The Grand Rapids Press. "His classes were very earthy. Some students took to that very well, and some students didn't."
And some of them probably didn't take too well to the whole "showing a video of a man screwing a pig" thing. Squares and prudes, mostly. The "earthier" students--the ones who can handle "real life"--were probably cool with it.
