“He said that the modern feminist ethos of “careerism” without connection to family and religion leaves them finding meaning in politics”
Professor Scott Yenor is a conservative who teaches political science at Boise State University in Idaho. In October, he gave a speech at a conservative conference which included criticism of feminism (gasp) and embraced traditional gender roles.
He was very frank and people on campus and beyond are losing their minds over his words.
Jarrett Stepman writes at the Daily Signal:
Woke Mob Comes for Professor Who Opposes Left-Wing Social Values
If you don’t agree with the politically correct narrative, you must be destroyed.
That’s the attitude elite Western institutions increasingly take with anyone who disagrees with the ever-moving and increasingly radical cultural left. If you have the gall to still be operating within those institutions, you are treated with an even higher level of hate.
Boise State University professor Scott Yenor is witnessing this firsthand.
Yenor, a tenured professor of political science, stirred up an angry hive of discontent for a speech he made at a National Conservatism conference in late October.
In the speech, he denounced the feminist ideology that treats boys and girls as if they are not only the same, but should want and value the same things as each other. He said that the modern feminist ethos of “careerism” without connection to family and religion leaves them finding meaning in politics and what he called the “global project.”
He also said that our culture now devalues and expects little out of men.
This video report from KTVB News in Idaho includes a clip from Yenor’s speech:
According to the Daily Signal article, this isn’t the first time that Yenor has been under fire from the left. Several years ago, he wrote an article that was critical of transgenderism:
In 2017, Yenor wrote an article for The Daily Signal in which he wrote that transgender activists are undermining parental rights and traditional family values.
Yenor wrote at the time:
Transgender rights activists are seeking to abridge parental rights by elevating the independent choices of young children. Respecting the sexual and gender “choices” of ever-younger children erodes parental rights and compromises the integrity of the family as an independent unit.
The reaction to Yenor’s comments then was also extreme, to say the least. Students, staff members, and outside activists sprung into action to get him fired, typically calling his words “hate speech.”
Yenor posted a recording of some of the voicemail messages he has received in recent weeks. Serious adult language warning here:

Professor Yenor has a lot of guts to speak the way he does in today’s campus environment, you’ve got to give him that. Also, kudos the school for not firing him.
