Gender and Sexuality Studies Prof Says Heterosexuality is ‘Tragic’

“From an LGBT perspective, [being straight] looks actually very tragic.”

Wouldn’t a professor come under major fire for making a statement like this about homosexuality?

Campus Reform reports:

California prof: Heterosexuality is ‘tragic’

A professor at the University of California-Riverside called heterosexuality “tragic” and stated that men are often pulled into toxic masculinity because of it.

University of California-Riverside Gender and Sexuality Studies Professor Jane Ward was recently featured in an Insider article titled, “Why heterosexual relationships are so bad for us, according to a sex researcher” in which she told the outlet that heterosexuality “tragic.”

Ward has also authored a book called The Tragedy of Heterosexuality.

“It really looks like straight men and women don’t like each other very much, that women spend so much time complaining about men, and we still have so much evidence of misogyny,” or woman-hating behavior, Ward told Insider. “From an LGBT perspective, [being straight] looks actually very tragic.”

The article cites an uptick in divorces and relationship problems among straight couples since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I think in some ways the pandemic is revealing the tragedy of heterosexuality to people who might not have otherwise paid attention to it,” said Ward.

The article goes on to list Ward’s reasons for being outspoken against heterosexuality, which are also found in her book.

One individual stated in Ward’s book that she finds it “depressing” that her friends “put up with” this from men.

“I find it depressing to see what my straight female friends put up with regarding treatment from men. I really sympathize with these women, but at the same time it makes me feel alienated from them,” she says in Ward’s book.

When she is old and alone and crapping herself with no children around to take care of her in the twilight of her life she will know how tragic her life was.

Tragic is that this person is a professor.

I’m “G”, and I, for one, don’t see heterosexality as being at all tragic. I see it as something I’m not a part of. That’s all.

I would be interested in knowing what those Lesbians labeled as and bullied for being TERFs have to say about her claim about the lack of misogyny in LGBTQ culture. I think they would be rather stunned to find she really believes this.

Oh and I have a hunch that the dynamics of most gay/lesbian relationships pretty well model the dynamics of other romantic relationships. With personalities, emotional baggage, personal history, mental and physical health, and maturity playing a much larger role in the interior life of the couple than sexual orientation does.

    Since many homosexuals were neglected/molested/abused/assaulted as children, their relationships are a mess like they are.

    Not their fault. But it is what it is. has forums and other things to help survivors.

Because women can’t be mean to each other? Puleeze.

    The good professor obviously has never worked in an office where there’s more than one woman boss. Until I raised a stink about it, I found my soul subject to the demands of two different women as bosses. One of them was a very sensible, pragmatic, and fair boss. The other one was flighty, and assigned work based on personalities rather than skills. When the ladder was elevated to president of the company, the former resigned and retired. I left at about the same time. I knew what was coming. The only thing that surprises me, is that the company is still in existence, and is making some money.

    Women on Woman and Black on Black are two things that we aren’t allowed to talk about because they don’t fit the narrative. My guess is that W-o-W is deliberately underreported in crime stats and by the media.

    For instance: in 2018, 2925 blacks were murdered: 234 by whites, 2600 by other blacks, 17 by “other” and 74 by unknown.

    Now, introduce this into a conversation about whites killing blacks, and I guarantee you will be called a racist within 5 minutes for even mentioning it, because we have to keep the focus on those 20 “say their name” blacks who were killed by cops over a 20 year period. Yeah, that’s the real problem here, not the other 2924 from above of which better than 90% were killed by other blacks.

If you can read this comment, thank a heterosexual couple.

Unless you are attracted to the opposite sex.

It’s sad when you start to understand you’re way smarter than most of these professors, journalists, politicians, and the like.

Why would I want to pay a woman tell me what it’s like to have a dick?

Someone please correct me if I’m wrong. Reading this article almost sounds as if this “professor” doesn’t WANT women to be attracted to men. That homosexuality is normal and being straight isn’t. I, for one, am tired of this crap being crammed down my throat. I’m not attracted to women in any way, shape or form. I’m almost 61 and I can remember a time when men were manly. But is seems like the young men these days just “act” feminine even if they’re straight. I’m not a feminazi either. I like having the door opened for me and being treated like a lady. Women’s Lib has ruined it for women like me. And I certainly don’t blame the men! I can say for a fact that women do, indeed, beat each other up. I’ve had lesbian neighbors twice, and living in an apt…WOW! Sometimes it sounded like they were going to come thru my ceiling when they were fighting. Unfortunately, this professor is the type the colleges seem to want. Then they can indoctrinate our kids and grandkids with their BS.

    The Bride and I are ten years ahead of you and we understand and agree completely. She enjoys being treated like a lady and I enjoy acting like a gentleman (usually; we all have lapses).

    Often, when we use the word “man” when talking about modern American males, we can’t help but let the quotation marks seep into the conversation.

      kay1960 in reply to DSHornet. | January 31, 2021 at 3:22 pm

      I love it that you still call your wife “Your Bride”! Did my heart good.
      I hate the term people like this “professor” use…Toxic Masculinity. It’s just a made up thing to fit their agenda. There’s nothing toxic about masculinity.

The tragedy is how Grievance Studies and Critical Race Theory mistreats white heterosexual males. Given the discrimination that they face by adherents of these theories, and the peer pressure placed on high school and college students to explore non-traditional sexual relationships, life has become increasingly difficult.

    kay1960 in reply to lawgrad. | January 29, 2021 at 4:15 am

    I totally agree with you. Being an old woman, I can’t say I know what that must feel like. What I can say is it must be very difficult being a white heterosexual male in this day and age. I grew up in a very different era where nobody got offended at the smallest thing. And during a time when a person wasn’t told they should apologize for the lack of pigment in their skin. I won’t apologize. Critical race theory is causing a great divide between people. Now that’s a tragedy.

A fake professor in a fake subject makes stupid comments. What are the odds?

Raze the universities and sow the ground with salt.

Force the grifters and sophists to take honest jobs for which they are competent, such as sweeping the floors at McDonalds.
