Gay, Lesbian and Trans rights protestor holds a placard making a typically idiotic statement – human rights apply to all humans, trans-rights are the infantile demands of self pitying losers.
‘More than 30 Oxford academics have blasted Stonewall for pushing ‘tendentious and antiscientific claims’ in the trans awareness training it gives to universities according to a report in The Sunday Times (a more sensationalized version of the same story appears in The Daily Mail if you are blocked by The Times paywall).
The professors and lecturers have taken issue with Oxford University’s compulsory training programme on Gay, Lesbian and Transgender issues, that includes dogmatic statements about permissible attitudes “towards Gay, Lesbian and especiall Transgender rights, including such unmitigated wank as “gender is how people interpret and view themselves.” The Oxford academics expressed their opposition to such unscientific nonsense being forced on teaching staff, research fellows and students in a letter passed to The Sunday Times.
They call for universities to sever links with Stonewall and other LGBT charities until and unless those organisations dump their fascistic attempts to restrict freedom of though and commit to ‘fully supporting academic freedom of thought’.
Academics are also being bullied by student groups to withdraw invitations to “transphobic speakers,” i.e. anyone who do not accept “that trans people are the gender they say they are” or maintain that gender is determined by our biological sex rather that “feelings”.
They fear the new rules university managers have accepted after being bullied by Gay BLT lobbying could see staff lose their jobs, and that they contravene the roght of free speech.
Modern history professor Selina Todd is quoted by the Sunday Times as saying: “[This] is really pushing an agenda which is dogmatic and completely overruling freedom of speech… I am very scared that academics will start to lose their jobs.
“I feel uncomfortable. I’ve told my employer that I feel vulnerable and I’ve had students say they feel intimidated by what’s going on at this campus.”
Oxford and Cambridge last year spent £55,000 between them on LGBT training so staff are better equipped to help students who may be struggling. According to a NUS LGBTQ+ report from 2014, just 20 per cent of trans students feel completely safe on campus, which begs questions just how many of these mental cases are there at Oxford. One in three trans students said they had experienced bullying or harassment – while 51 per cent have seriously considered dropping out of their course. The Daily Stirrer does not see that as any loss to either the university or society in general were that to happen.
And what are these trans students studying for anyway, degrees in self pity?
