Write down everything that happened and when. Tell your advisor about it. It's their job to help you. There's no excuse for sexist teaching. It cannot be tolerated. I suggest you limit your complaints to this main issue. The other issues just complicate the situation unnecessarily. It's unclear who supervises TAs in your situation, but your advisor ...

It's not clear what you are asking. You can use duck duck go or yahoo.com or any other search engine on a browser like Vivaldi or Opera, or IE and keep your log to prove you didn't use google. Doing that you are following the directive of not using Google. ¿Is that it? otherwise please reword your question to be more specific, please.

I doubt that this would be a problem, provided that you don't cheat. But your work will probably be put through a plagiarism checker and get a score. How that is handled is up to the instructor. But if you really need assurance, then do the work under the eye of a mutually trusted individual who will attest to your following the rules. A proctor, in other ...

I have had to deal with student cheating twice in my academic life, first as a postdoc and then as a lecturer. The first case was students who colluded wrongly while writing lab reports, an ...

Your friend knowingly violated code of conduct. A large number of your classmates know exactly who was the source of the leak. It is only a matter of time before professors know who did it and collect sufficient evidence. Then the case will be sent to an academic misconduct panel and they will decide what penalty to assign. Harsh penalty is quite likely. ...

Your friend engaged in outright cheating. In nearly all universities, what they did is a major violation of the codes of conduct that students are rightly expected to abide by. This isn't a "grey area" situation, your friend knowingly did something that was very wrong and I cannot imagine that the university authorities will see much cause to show leniency ...
