UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR LOSES ADMIN JOB FOR STATING THAT "MEN CANNOT GET PREGNANT"

SOURCE: VIGILANT CITIZEN

Kathleen Lowrey is an associate professor of anthropology at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Alberta, in Canada. She is also serving as the chair of the undergraduate program – an administrative role which includes duties such as chairing a committee about courses, approving transfer credits, and running a special seminar for honors students in the department.

She’s also a feminist. However, according to some anonymous students and the higher-ups of her University, she is not the right kind of feminist. Because she believes that women are … women. Even worse, she believes that men cannot be women because they don’t have a vagina.

These extreme and radical views caused her to become “problematic” as she was pressured to leave her administrative role. When she refused to do so, she was fired.

Until what seems like a few minutes ago, there was nothing controversial about this opinion. But now there is. The only “correct” opinion to hold is that gender expression trumps biology in any rights-based claims. And in academic circles, Lowrey’s views, which she is at no pains to hide on campus and off, are a form of apostasy that cries out for punishment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This firing of this professor smacks of desperation on the cusp of madness.

And speaking of this, when has it become "illogical" to say that biological males cannot have children, to the point when you fire a professor for making that obseervation?!?

Folks, this is an industrial-strength slippery slope moment in Canadian academia which is going to have to be addressed, sooner or later, and I would like to hope, for the sake of free discussion, it is addressed sooner.
