If government employees can't be fired for making wrong statements, it would become even more difficult to trust information received by government officials. This would make handling a lot of paperwork much harder. What are we paying them for if professors aren't expected to even give correct information? Their job is distributing knowledge.

In case of professors like Tim Hunt, we are paying them to make scientific discoveries. Now, if it turned out that he deliberately falsified his results that would be a valid reason to fire him. But refraining from expressing politically incorrect opinions should not be a part of a scientistís job.
