A student over at Indiana University Of Pennsylvania has been banned from attending a religious studies class required for graduation after pointing out that there are only two genders.

According to Lake Ingle, the class was made to watch a Ted-Talk featuring Paula Stone, a transgender woman, giving examples of “mansplaining”, “male privilege” and all that other stuff it’s trendy to moan about these days.
Following the video, Ingle says the teacher “opened the floor to WOMEN ONLY. Barring men from speaking until the women in the class had their chance to speak.” Very inclusive!
After some time had passed, Ingle says he “took the opportunity to point out the official view of biologists who claim there are only two biological genders,” and refuted the “gender wage gap”.
Sounds fair right? After all uni is about taking ideas and discussing them, hearing all kinds of different opinions and respecting them. Well, apparently not.
“The floor was opened, and not a single woman spoke. Thirty seconds or so passed and still no woman had spoken. So, I decided it was permissible for me to enter the conversation, especially because I felt the conversation itself was completely inappropriate in its structure,” Ingle told Campus Reform. “I objected to the use of the anecdotal accounts of one woman’s experience to begin a discussion in which they were considered reality. It was during my objection that Dr. Downie attempted to silence me because I am not a woman.”
Unfortunately there’s no video of the incident, but in the interest of fairness the professor’s report describes Ingle as having a “disrespectful objection to the class discussion structure; refusal to stop talking out of turn; angry outbursts.” The truth may be somewhere in the middle, but regardless it seems like Ingle claiming there are two genders may result in him not graduating, which would be ridiculous:
So here’s where they’re at now:
“Alison Downie and Lake Ingle had a hearing before the university’s Academic Integrity Board, in which Ingle disputed Downie’s attempt for permanent suspension. The Academic Integrity Board’s ruling is currently set for March 19.”
Let’s see if Ingle’s “male privilege” comes into effect today.
Meanwhile, here’s a video of triggered uni students storming out of a discussion after being told that there are biological differences between men and women. Sigh…
