This is pretty unbelievable, but it happens to be true.
Greg Lukianoff: Sex, Fruit Bats, and Politically Correct Zoology at an Irish College
Apparently, Dr Evans showed an article on fellatio in bats to a colleague, and was accused of sexual harassment. He has now been cleared, but due to this, has been placed under extensive monitoring.
His petition is doing the rounds of academia, and has attracted such luminaries as Steven Pinker and Daniel Dennett to sign it already.
I am a UCC student, and I find this utterly reprehensible and disgraceful.

The original article is here: PLoS ONE: Fellatio by Fruit Bats Prolongs Copulation Time
This is a clear violation of academic freedom, and an embarassment for UCC and Ireland more generally.
