Survey: Feminists Who Criticize Transgender Ideology More Hated in Academia Than Conservatives
“discrimination against gender-critical feminists is even worse than discrimination against Trump supporters or Brexit voters”
You may have seen examples of this in the news over the past few years. Some transgender people are hostile to women who hold to the idea of women based on biology. Did you ever think such a thing would be controversial?
The College Fix reports:
Feminists critical of transgender ideology even more hated in academia than conservatives: survey
One in three conservative academics and graduate students has faced disciplinary action, or threatened with it, for conveying their personal political beliefs, according to a survey on political discrimination and “self-censorship” in higher education.
The Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology research found a population at even higher risk: feminists who are critical of transgender ideology.
Conservatives in academia in the U.S., Canada and Britain are “virtually guaranteed” to face discrimination, report author Eric Kaufmann, politics professor at the University of London, wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed on his findings.
Kaufmann examined eight different surveys by graduate-level students and professors, which provided evidence for a lack of viewpoint diversity in higher education and existence of discrimination against conservatives and “gender-critical feminists.”
He defined the latter group as women who “believe that biological sex is essentially what qualifies you for membership in the identity group of male and female.”
Such academics “would defend the integrity of women-only spaces — such as women shelters — from those who are biologically male, someone like a trans woman,” Kaufmann told The College Fix in a phone interview. They are left-wing feminists, who are attached to feminism because they are “attached to biological womanhood.”
On the bright side, most professors do not embrace cancel culture in its most radical form, he found. Many of them are not actively opposed to it, though, and younger cohorts are the most radical.
…research highlighted, however, a unique observation: that “discrimination against gender-critical feminists is even worse than discrimination against Trump supporters or Brexit voters,” he told The Fix.

It’s easy to understand why the feminist heretics are so hated.
Conservatives are assumed to be evil idiots who will never do the right thing. They therefore meet expectations.
By contrast, the feminists, fail expectations. As liberals they are supposed to support all other liberals, but they don’t. Therefore they are considered traitors, people who should know better but do the wrong thing (meaning, speaking their minds) anyway.
“trans exclusionary radical feminists” (TERF) I believe is the acronym for those hated feminists.
The article at the link will give people vertigo, but it is MUST reading for anyone who wants to understand what’s really going on with the transgenders. I independently verified its core thesis.
NOTE: Medium has censored it for telling the truth.
Here is a link to the archived post before “Medium” (California left wingers) censored it.
I’m getting messages from two different browsers that that entire domain is out of order.
Never mind, it turned out to be temporary.
Wow, I must say that was strange. In case anyone’s interested, here is my very short summary.
Transgender women (i.e. men who want to play the role of women) are genuine. They’re not trying to be straight voyeurs or anything like that. In fact their goal is typically to play the role of a lesbian, in a relationship with a lesbian.
(Regrettably perhaps, they don’t seem to want a lesbian relationship with another transgender woman.)
However the lesbians don’t want these people with male anatomy trying to have relationships with them. They want someone with female anatomy, that’s a critical aspect of why they’re lesbians.
To some extent the same thing may also exist with all the sexes reversed, but this way is the most typical.
When you look at life only through the lens of your own irrational fantasies, then create a movement that demands that the world respects your irrationality as objective reality, you don’t get to be astonished when you discover that the mutual inconsistencies between your fantasies and those of other people cause “reality” to fracture and crumble.
Everyone has a right to live in his own fantasyland, of course, but if he relocates there and opens up bank accounts, he’s got no standing to complain when it doesn’t end well.
Dittos on the vertigo.
With all these mentally ill people demanding the real world validate their illnesses, they shouldn’t be offended when normal people laugh and point.
One of the rare instances where TERFs and I agree.
The Overton Window has finally moved so far that OG feminists are now on the other side of it.
The smell of leftist cannibalism in the morning…….
Zero sympathy for TERFs. They couldn’t tell that their ideology’s logical conclusions would lead to this insanity. The funny thing is, it won’t end here either.
That’s what you get when you play around with philosophy you don’t understand to build a completely unstable ideology you apparently don’t understand.
Now they get to sleep in the bed they sh!t in.
