Progressive Academics Against Science

A researcher has been barred form studying the after-effects of sex-reaasignment surgery, because the university was afraid the results of the study might contradict the Settled Narrative on transgenderism.

A researcher has been refused permission to study cases of people who have surgery to reverse gender reassignment by a university that said it risked generating controversy on social media sites.

The proposal was rejected with an explanation noting that it was a potentially “politically incorrect” piece of research and could lead to material being posted online that “may be detrimental to the reputation of the institution”.

Because it would be just awful for the Settled Narrative if it were discovered there were detrimental effects to treating gender dysphoria through chemical and surgical mutilation.

In other news of the confused, Chelsea Manning has been barred from entering Canada because of xer multiple convictions for treasonish offenses, or as they say in America’s hat, offences. I’m sure Justin Trudeau’s hair will grant xer an exerption.

  1. Indeed, there is a reason why that can be qualified as the regressive left.

    It’s clearly not just for metaphorical purposes, but there is also a good case to be made that this pair of words — “regressive left” — may very well be…

    … just plain tautological.

    “I can haz new study?”

    “Hell no, ya can’t, bigot! Because feelings!”

  3. What I find odd is they appear to be afraid of the possible conclusion that transsexuals who undergo a second transfer back to their original sex (i.e. removing the disguise) had a much lower rate of suicide and other health related problems.

    You’d think that those who had the best wishes of the suffering at heart would want to know this.

  4. They don’t want the basis of a lawsuit against parents. If parents have to think twice about mutilating their kid, there may be fewer kids to virtue signal over. We can’t have that!!

  5. @ Craig Smith: In our current materialistic, consumerist culture, what is the ultimate expression of that? Trading in. Don’t like your car? Trade it in and get a new one! Don’t like your nose? Go to a plastic surgeon and get it “fixed”! Don’t like what sex you were born? Go to a surgeon to get wrong bits removed and the right bits added!

  6. This demonstrates the religion of the leftist views. No heresies, no dissent, no apostacies, no heretics are allowed to present any viewpoints against them. Climate deniers (whatever that means) must be imprisoned or even executed. Other views must not be allowed to be presented on campuses (their seminaries). Indulgences (climate offsets) are allowed for the rich and powerful to continue in their excesses while keeping others in poverty.

    Hate speech (which is whatever they deem it to be) must be met with violence. They control the entertainment, media and education and will allow no other to bring viewpoints. They are trying to be the only gatekeepers to the internet so they can strangle the sharing of other views.

    The leftist belief is a jealous god without forgiveness for those who will not bend to it.

  7. I have leftist friends who insist that science is fully insulated from politics. This is yet another example of how willfully naive that view is.

  8. We don’t trust/allow an 8 year old boy to ride his bike to school but we will allow and 8 year old change his gender.

    That ain’t science that is totally messed up.

  9. There’s a lot of this about – denial of science (or simply in-your-face observation) when it pushes against the leftist religion.

    As with the achievement gaps between Asian/Caucasian/Black/Hispanic ethnicities, useful and constructive approaches are discarded (decade after decade) regardless of the toll in human misery. One would think that the powers-that-be don’t want improvement but that’s just silly (isn’t it?).

    Here in KC, as in most cities, problem schools have certain racial mixes. But, instead of asking ourselves “is it possible that people of some races tend to learn differently than those of other races?” and then figuring out how to best engage minority students with an aim of eliminating the “achievement gap”, we declare the idea taboo and continue on, decade after decade, wasting billions, blaming schools, and making curricula ever more useless regardless of the toll in human misery.

    The “trans” agenda is simply an arrow in the quiver of lefty causes designed to deconstruct civilization and if we wind up with a few suicides here and there… well, there’s the old saw about omelets and broken eggs.

    As a BTW: I listened to a recording of Dinesh D’Souza making a point I’ve long wondered about: why would conservatives have any interest in oppressing minorities? What’s the upside? As I’m greedy, what does keeping the black man (or a tranny) down do for me? Not one thing, far as I can tell.

  10. ” . . . potentially “politically incorrect” piece of research and could lead to material being posted online that “may be detrimental to the reputation of the institution”

    That’s a 55-gallon drum of irony right there.
