Germany in the thirties....our universities today?
However the violence perpetrated by one activist was real enough and it is no wonder that women activists are now more determined than ever to defend their spaces from men, trans or not. I notice the involvement of Linda Bellos who I hadn't heard of for years since haer disastrous tenure in Lambeth.
Meanwhile at the upper end of the social scale Sally-Anne Huang Headmistress of the private South London girls school tells us a girl should not be called a girl using "they" instead of "she" to protect the feelings of transgender students.
I saw a video on facebook of a "gender-fluid" couple showing how they brought up their child (biologically a boy) putting him in a dress, painting his nails (and toenails) treating him like a toy rather than a child.
This is all going a wee bit too far methinks which brings me to the latest atrocity committed by our "centres of learning or Universities as they used to be called. The Times reported that:
A researcher has been refused permission to to study cases of people who have surgery to reverse gender reassignment by a university that said it risked generating controversy on social media.
The proposal was rejected with an explanation noting that it was a potentially "politically incorrect" and could lead to material being posted on line that "may be detrimental to the reputation of the university".
In other words the bullying bile of a handful of activists is more important than researching the facts. Fear of transgressions against political trends now trumps finding or speaking the truth.
Such bullying is everywhere these days and it's time that not just universities but all of us started standing up against it.
Everything is open to criticism whether it be the views of transgender activists and those who seem to revolve their politics around their genitals or followers of backwards misogynistic religions.
The truth is out there...... not that the left or intersectionalists care.
