The National Review has the details.

According a piece penned by the professor, David Seidemann, on Monday, this was the portion that an administrator asked him to take out on the grounds that it was a Title IX violation:

“Class deportment, effort etc…….10% (applied only to select students when appropriate).” What would make someone one of those “select students” isn’t exactly clear. It also isn’t clear how exactly those words constitute, as the administration charged, “a prelude to sexual harassment,” because Seidmann claims that the administration wouldn’t explain it to him.
