A State University of New York professor is in hot water after giving a controversial “female or shemale” quiz.

SUNY Geneseo adjunct lecturer David Sorbello gave a quiz on Oct. 18 asking students to identify the differences between cisgender and transgender people according to Logo’s NewNowNext. Images of the quiz circulated on Twitter, leading to outrage from students and alumni.

"We are taking the matter very seriously and are gathering the facts to determine if and what action is warranted," University president Denise Battles said in a statement. "The classroom is an environment in which students and faculty can and should discuss challenging topics and ideas, which makes it all the more important that we gather and fully review the facts in the case."

According to USA Today, a letter signed by at least 50 students also said that Sorbello students shouldn't get too intoxicated as they would be “going home with an individual who is transgender.” No action has been taken against Sorbello as of publication time.
