Prof in Canada Fired for Believing Biological Sex is Real

Prof in Canada Fired for Believing Biological Sex is Real

“for creating an ‘unsafe’ environment for students”

This professor is an anthropologist. As anyone knows, when an anthropologist unearths ancient remains, they can typically determine what the person’s gender was through, you know, science.

The College Fix reports:

Canadian professor canned for opinion that biological sex is a real thing

As Chris Taylor quoted in the film Platoon, “Hell is the impossibility of reason.” A recent incident at the University of Alberta proves this point (yet again).

Kathleen Lowrey, a professor of anthropology at the school, technically was fired from her position as associate chair of undergraduate programs in the Department of Anthropology for creating an “unsafe” environment for students, The Centre for Free Expression reports.

The reality is more of an eye-roller: Lowrey is known for being open about her non-politically correct opinions on sex and gender, which is known as “gender-critical.” In a nutshell, she doesn’t believe that sex/gender is a “social construct.”

Lowrey was asked to resign back in March but refused, telling the university it “would need to put its reasons for [dismissing her] in writing.” Shortly thereafter, she received a letter from Dean of Arts Lesley Cormack merely stating that “it is not in the best interests of the students or the University” for her to continue in her position.

Keep in mind no formal complaint was made against the professor. According to the CFE, the request for Lowrey’s resignation was based on “one or more students [going] to the University’s Office of Safe Disclosure and Human Rights and the Dean of Students, André Costopolous” to voice their misgivings. Nothing in writing was ever put in motion.

Due process? Actual complaints? The Party does not require such things to know what is true. Her thoughts were verboten! She should be thanking the Party for not sending her to a re-education camp, although that possibility is still on the table.

And I thought Alberta was, with Saskatchewan, the conservative part of Canada. Apparently, just as in the US, not in academe.

Stating facts will get one fired. (Picks up eyeballs off the floor.)

Insanity reigns in universities. Of course we know it has nothing to do with educating students. It’s all about indoctrination to the lame ideology of the Left.

Note that no one has said, “He’s wrong, and here are facts and analysis to refute him.”

No one needs to. He has committed thoughtcrime and “thoughtcrime does not entail death; thoughtcrime is death.”

I don’t know much of Canad’s law, but I guess there’s room for a lawsuit.
