yeah. well my math teacher (who is male) wrote on the board an equation that made me and my friend (who is a major feminist) offended:

women= money and time
money=the root of all evil

then he goes on about how women were god's failing project. that they deliberately disobey god. not only should he not bring religion in school. sexism should stay at his doorstep too. i'm guessing this is why he isnt married

That's actually very serious gender discrimination and harassment, and likely a serious breach of his contract.

So, time for you and your friend to talk to your principal or dean.

the proof you abridged is an internet joke that can be found at

in Usenet groups, the joke ends with "since evil is negative, the square root of evil must be imaginary, which would mean that money is imaginary, and therefore, time must also be imaginary."

if p then q (statement)
if p then not q (negation)
if q then p (converse)
if not p then not q (inverse)
if not q then not p (contrapositive)
