Feminist TA at UC Santa Barbara Under Fire for Saying Men are not Women

Feminist TA at UC Santa Barbara Under Fire for Saying Men are not Women

“I am working with a professor from the feminist department to gather students about the disgusting lies she is spreading.”

We’ve reached the point where people are no longer allowed to say things that are scientifically accurate.

Campus Reform reports:

Feminist TA suggests men are not women and UCSB students are NOT happy

Students and faculty at the University of California, Santa Barbara are attacking a lesbian Feminist Studies Teacher’s Assistant (TA) for voicing the claim that“No [man] will ever be a [woman].”

Laura Tanner, a TA in the feminist studies department at UCSB, is being accused of engaging in “transphobia” while teaching her class and on social media, as initially reported by Feminist Current.

“Woman = adult human female. Surgeries/hormones ≠ change sex or gender. No [man] can ever be a [woman],” Tanner tweeted in early June, using the sex symbols for “man” and “woman.”

“UCSB STUDENTS, there is a feminist instructor on our campus named Laura Tanner who has repeatedly demonstrated hatred and transphobia both in her classes and aggressively on her social media,” a Twitter user named Casey, who appears to be a UCSB student, tweeted later that same day. “I am working with a professor from the feminist department to gather students about the disgusting lies she is spreading.”

Tanner previously received criticism for a tweet responding to the news of a transgender activist who was indicted for stealing thousands of dollars from the Portland Women’s march.

“Well I’m sure he only did it because he is so oppressed,” the UCSB TA tweeted. “I bet he bought himself a gold lamé pocketbook and some red lipstick so he could be a real girl.”

Multiple students organized an on-site protest on June 13, creating signs that displayed Tanner’s tweets and calling her a “terf,” an acronym which means “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.” The student who tweeted about it claimed that professors and TAs also attended the protest.

[FS: As I’ve said, “intersectionality” is a real problem the left is going to have to deal with at some near point.  Are women being demoted from their privileged position as among the left’s top “victims”?  And is this demotion a function of the elevation of men who claim to be, want to be, but can never be women? Interesting conundrum as the transgender war on women wages on.]

No man will ever be a woman.

    Not through biology, but through a progressive process of anthropogenic corruption where a man attaches a pair of breasts to his chest, or a woman attaches a penis to her crotch, or one or the other choose or foster a transverse sexual orientation.

      And even then, a man will still not be a woman.

      Every cell in a man’s body is male. All that can be done with drugs and surgery is injure him and drive him crazy.

      Same for females.

      And yes, hormones, even bio identical hormones, can drive a normal person crazy, even if the hormones match the cells, much less if they DON’T match.

      Plus, to maintain the change in appearance, the wrong hormones have to be taken continuously, as long as the person lives. That means taking mind-altering drugs every day for decades on end.

      Transgender treatments using drugs and surgery are cruel and harmful to the person. I don’t deny that people with gender dysphoria are in pain, but the proper treatment has to be to remove the pain, not wreck. the body.

    Not true. Adam Carolla asserts that in 50 years we’ll all be chicks. Unlike AOC, The Aceman’s predictions are never wrong.

News article about a cow that thinks it’s a dog.

Nothing in the article about the cow really being a dog. Nothing in the article demands calling the cow a dog. In fact, the article asks the obvious question: “But how can this half-ton bovine running around these 10- and 30-pound canines not know she’s a cow?”

It’s way past the time to stop humoring these deluded people.

“A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad; you are not like us'” St Anthony the Great

That time has already arrived.

Gender studies of the masculine and feminine attributes (e.g. sexual orientation) of men and women, respectively. Are they still a mystery?

That faster higher ed implodes on itself, the better. It has and will continue to accelerate.

The next generation of (smart) kids has already gotten wise to the lie that college degree= living wage job. Between the massive amounts of debt and the indoctrination, more and more will find other ways to improve their position w/out a degree. As the cultural norm moves towards making shaming the shenanigans going on in higher ed, the nutbar factor will accelerate and also accelerate the decline.

These institutions seem to have deep pockets and fat donors, so the bubble could continue a little longer.

I could say the same about tech…

Science only counts when it is “settled.”

Children of the left are tiresome and stupid. They are physically college age students with the emotional maturity and brain development of a four year old.

The transgender thing actually is insulting to women and degrades them — like drag queens, they pretend that being a woman is red lipstick and lace underpants, or maybe it’s breast and butt implants, false eyelashes or a pouty lower lip. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Interesting that straight feminists shy away from this discussion or acquiesce in the left’s mass delusion, leaving the defense of women to lesbians. Fortunately, more than a few of them seem up to the task despite the vituperation hurled at them.

Psychosexually disoriented, medically mutilated males is what they are……NOT WOMEN.

This is hilarious, albeit a very sad commentary on how Leftists view reality. A woman is proclaiming properly that a man with an XY chromosome can’t be a woman with an XX chromosome. Yet, Leftists are rushing to defend men who want to displace women, and so deprive women of their hard earned right to compete with men as best they can. Unbelievable.

there are three options:
mentally ill.

choose wisely.

Men pretending to be women are attacking a real woman for saying a man can never be a woman. A lesbian feminist no less. Where’s my popcorn?

And Democrat Presidential candidates are openly advocating the enforcement of this mental illness on society. So much for reality and science when comes to advancing a leftist political agenda set to destroy the society in order to make their beloved Big Brother the ruler of us all. I always laugh when Democrats appeal to science over global warming or call Republicans misogynists, then support men competing in women sporting events in order to steal their scholarships and medals.

When I was working at AmEmbassy Bangkok, a lot of other Embassy personnel thought I was strange for having absolutely no interest in going to a katoey (drag queen) show. Maybe I got RIFfed because America is now supposed to stand for every sexual perversion known to man, woman, and Satan himseld.

Milton says two great sexes animate the world (Paradise Lost).

That’s not a great way to start a taxonomy, but within a species it’s pretty useful.

The left doesn’t understand domestication. As in, Wm. Kerrigan:

We are men and women. It almost always matters which we are. Men and women are aggressive. Their regard for each other is clouded by grudges, suspicions, fears, needs, desires, and nacrissistic postures. There’s no scrubbing them out. The best you can hope for is domestication, as in football, rock, humor, happy marriage, and a good prose style. Jokes trade on offensiveness; PC is not a funny dialect. The unconscious is a joker, a sexist and aggressive creature. Our sexuality has always been scandalous.

M,F, T – seems like a logical solution. But the Left doesn’t generally like logic.

The left has become The Worm Ouroboros. Eating its own tail.

The obama legacy: hate, corruption and mental illness.

Even as little kids we were able to tell men and women apart by their body characteristics. So then, what are we to think when a man who looks like Hulk Hogan puts on lipstick and wants to wrestle women?

We’ve seen what happens when boys declare themselves to be girls and compete against real girls in physical sports like running or wrestling or weightlifting; the real girls don’t have a chance. If rational people, especially feminists, don’t stand up for real women, then women will be squeezed out of sports, and possibly injured by larger, stronger men who “identify” as women.

““No [man] will ever be a [woman].” #Correct #Facts #Science

University of California?

Whichever campus?

TA Laura Tanner should get with the program.

Or is she unwoke?

Anyone ask Henry Higgins for comment?
