Portland State Students Walk Out of Event When Biologist Says Men and Women are Different

Portland State Students Walk Out of Event When Biologist Says Men and Women are Different

Scientific facts are now a form of fascism.

During a recent talk at Portland State University, a small group of students staged a walkout when a scientist on the panel pointed out that there are biological differences between men and women.

James Damore, formerly of Google, was also on the panel and was expected to be the target of anger.

Katie Shepherd writes at Willamette Week:

No Violence, Brief Disruption as Fired Google Engineer Speaks at Portland State University

A panel featuring several controversial figures at Portland State University unfolded with just one interruption on Saturday evening despite organizers voicing fears of violence and protests intended to silent conservative dissent.

A student group called Freethinkers of PSU invited James Damore, an engineer who was fired from Google for writing a memo on gender and diversity that the company deemed sexually harassing and discriminatory. He spoke on a panel, moderated by a philosophy professor, that also included two women known for their conservative views on gender dynamics…

When the doors of Hoffman Hall opened to the ticket-holding attendees, the only protesters in sight were a group of six students holding signs displaying photos of prominent women scientists: Dana Ulery, Gladys West, Lynn Conway, Radia Perlman, Adele Goldberg, and Grace Hopper, Ada Lovelace, the Eniac Team, Karen Spark-Jones and Sophie Wilson…

Some other protesters waiting in line for the walk-out protest wore purple, a color chosen to distinguish themselves from the rest of the small crowd waiting to listen to Damore speak.

“I’m bummed my tuition money is going toward James Damore,” said Chloe Kendal, a senior graphic design major, as she waited in line. “Most people I know are really bummed. People in my department are really unhappy he’s speaking on campus.”

In the end, however, it was scientific facts that triggered the social justice warriors. One of them even sabotaged the room’s audio system on her way out. Twitchy reports:

WATCH: Students walk out on ‘Nazis’ who point out biological differences between men and women

Speaking at a diversity discussion at Portland State University on Feb. 17, Evergreen State College biologist Heather E. Heying pointed out that there are, indeed, biological differences between men and women: height, muscle mass, fat deposits, etc.

That was enough to cause several students to walk out, apparently sabotage the sound system on the way out, and generally, give security a hard time over defending the “Nazis” speaking inside.

Watch the video below. The best part comes after the protesters leave. A panel member says the talk will go on and the remaining students cheer in applause:

This is what we’ve come to. Students describing statements of scientific facts as fascism and Nazism.

“Nazis are not tolerated in a civil society”…….”F#ck the Police”.

And, the additional civility on display as someone knocks over the mixer on the way out.

We will pay attention when you stop throwing tantrums.

Why is it always the ugly ones who do the walking out?!?! Hahahahahahhaaa

I think the hair dye has something to do with it

In the mid 90s, I took a course called The Psychology of Communication thought by a very good PhD psychologist.

He was teaching law students how to effectively communicate. He stated the obvious truth that men and women think differently.

Several of the females in the class complained to the dean.

Reality and Leftists, like parallel lines never destined to meet.

I remember when “Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus” was a bestseller.

    About the same time, there was a book out by a renowned lady scientist who had worked on brain imaging for years.

    Her conclusion was that men and women are wired so differently (by-in-large) that we might be considered two different species.

    This was VERY good news, as it makes our species MUCH more adaptable to threats in our environment. Up to the the recent past, it sure seems to have served humans well…

A fact I’ve known since I was old enough (5) to notice, what IS it with these eedjits?

Diversity: Uniformity will set you free.

Nazi: One guilty of diversion from Correct Thought.

“…said Chloe Kendal, a senior graphic design major…”
Yep, that about says it all.

    At least she’s not a gender studies major. One can actually find gainful work in graphic design.

      My sis has degrees in graphic design.

      She went straight from graduations to working for Henson porductions. If you bough Muppet baby diapers and other such products in the 80’s they were like designed be her. She even did the opening graphics for the TV special when Henson died

      She’s had her worked used in nationwide commercials for companies like ATT

      Now head of her dept for a large national grocery chain.

‘Kindergarten Cop’- “Boys have a p*nis, girls have a va*ina!”

I just sit in amazement that the leftists claim conservatives are anti-science, given the skepticism many have on the science being used for political purposes when talking about Climate Change (or Global Warming), yet these same people reject that biology has determined that there are two genders, not the dozens they now are claiming.

How do you take these people seriously?

Well seeing as how they could not figure out whether they were male or female probably added to their anger.

By now we surely know who the Nazis were, and what they stood for, and especially what they did.

Damore is a ‘Nazi’? The statement is absurd. Mostly he appears to be a bright, mostly LIberal guy who just had his BS detector go off a few too many times.

“Do you remember,’ he went on, ‘writing in your diary, “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four”?’

‘Yes,’ said Winston.

O’Brien held up his left hand, its back towards Winston, with the thumb hidden and the four fingers extended.

‘How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?’

‘Four.’
‘And if the party says that it is not four but five — then how many?'”

The left is infantalized. They glorify victimization. They glorify subjective feelings over fact. They use opposing opinions as an excuse to tune out, or even to not attend school or riot.

But the true danger doesn’t lay with the silliness of supposedly rational adults have temper tantrums against facts on college campi. The true danger is that these same infantalized liberals are fully supportive of using the power of the government to silence dissent, enforce a leftist orthodoxy, and trample individual rights.

holding signs displaying photos of prominent women scientists: Dana Ulery, Gladys West, Lynn Conway, Radia Perlman, Adele Goldberg, and Grace Hopper, Ada Lovelace, the Eniac Team, Karen Spark-Jones and Sophie Wilson…

As a software engineer, this is a particular bugbear of mine. It is now well known that Ada Lovelace wrote no algorithms herself but merely transcribed Babbage’s notes and cleaned them up for publication. She deserves credit for popularizing the difference engine, but she was not a scientist or programmer.

I’m surprised that Damore’s attorney allowed him to join this panel without supervision/representation.

The only reason why radical liberalism survives is because of the fact that most of its adherents are delusional. They “live”, not in the real world, but in some Matrix-like alternate mental universe. And, the most troubling thing about this is that, while they “believe” that their “universe” is real, subconsciously they know that it is not. For their delusion to survive, they have to destroy reality.

Male and female human beings are different; from their skeletal structure all the way up to their mental processes. They are designed to compliment one another in the only realm which nature deems important, the survival of offspring. Nature does not give a whit if individual human beings are happy, fulfilled, in touch with their inner selves or anything else which is not strictly related to the continuation of the species. So, males and females are designed to compliment each other by being gender specialized. Being specialized does not mean that one gender is superior to the other, except in certain specialized endeavors. It does mean that males and females have to recognize the differences inherent in the other gender in order to get along with one other. Humanity created society to do just that. But the delusional in our society are bent on destroying the very thing which makes it possible for a species, with the power to destroy all life on the planet, to live here. Delusion.

They are probably the same people who believe in denying lives deemed unworthy (e.g. selective-child), denying individual dignity (i.e. “diversity”), deny civil rights (e.g. warlock hunts), have a predisposition to conflate logical domains (e.g. inference, assumptions outside of a limited frame of reference), and favor elective processes (e.g. social justice adventures including elective wars, regime changes).

That said, men and women are equal in rights and complementary in Nature.

Let’s see….
How many chromosome combinations are there?
Theme song, “Don’t know much biology…”
.
And these people point their bony noses and fingers at others and shout, “Science Denier!”
Riiiiight…..

You have to be really really smart to deny the obvious – men and women are different.

Only people that smart could believe something that stupid.

I wonder how long we’ll be able to have women’s sports… And I wonder if women’s sports go away how many women will be in competitive sports at the highest level.

Which is not to say that women can’t be amazing athletes. Many many are better athletes than I… But I’d be surprised if one woman made it on an NBA team, an NFL team, an NHL team or in baseball (where they’d have the best chance potentially).

    If a woman made an NFL roster it would almost certainly be as a kicker or a punter.

      Albigensian in reply to Finrod. | March 1, 2018 at 12:25 pm

      If a woman made the NFL roster, it would be followed by demands for proportional representation. And, today’s NFL just might cave.

      To achieve that proportional representation, the rules of the game would have to be changed. Radically changed.

      And as they were, NFL would insist that, really, nothing significant is changing. Every possible rule change was explored that might make female athletes more competitive on the field and reasonably well-protected from serious injury.

      Could the NFL sell this new product? I dunno, but Disney seems to have no difficulty selling theirs. Indeed, perhaps Disney would buy this new, female-friendly NFL as they seem to be buying just about every other entertainment company.

      So, behold the future: the Disneyfication of football.

How come the only message I see these toddlers actually expressing basically comes down to; “Conform to our ideas and embrace diversity!”

“Scientific facts are now a form of fascism….”

EVERYTHING is a form of fascism if it can be used by fascists.

Men and women differ in their susceptibility to many diseases. For example, multiple sclerosis is much more common in women. Their symptoms during a heart attack differ. Men have denser bones and their skin is thicker, not needing all that lotion women always need. Men have much more muscle mass, are taller, and tolerate bad smells, hot, and cold better. The idea that they are identical and a tantrum will be thrown if you deny it shows how shaky the whole framework is for the Left. If stating facts is sufficient for you to disrupt speakers and scream, then the vast majority of rational people will run away from you.
