It’s often quite shocking and downright pathetic how far liberals will go to make all of society fit neatly into their progressive vision for America. In their minds, even some of our most basic societal norms and customs must be modified or reinvented in order to make them compatible with the principles of liberalism and social justice. As it turns out, even science is not safe from the left’s quest to fundamentally transform American society.
At the University of California, Santa Cruz, students will soon be able to participate in an event titled “Research 101: Tools for Feminist Science.” As if the title alone wasn’t enough to convince you that this is yet another ridiculous stunt being pulled by the radical left, consider the event description, which reads: “Participants will be challenged to apply principles and practices of justice to their own work, interrogating questions such as: Who benefits? Who is harmed? Who is most vulnerable? …And ultimately, who do we do science for, and why?”
The description of the event goes on to explain that students will walk away with the skills and resources that they need to urge researchers in their communities to be more “inclusive, equitable and attentive to social justice.”
As you probably could have guessed, this event is not being hosted by a conservative group on campus. Rather, it is being held by a group called “Free Radicals,” which describes themselves as a group that is committed to bringing about political and social change by urging scientists to “think through the hidden assumptions in their methodological approaches” and by encouraging them to “think more deeply about the political implications of their work,” according to their website and reported by The College Fix.
So in other words, the goal of the Free Radicals is to convince scientists to change or modify their findings in order to comply with the values and principles of social justice. The first thing that comes to mind when we think about liberals replacing science with their own twisted ideology is the issue of gender. The social justice activists and the political left are hellbent on convincing the entire country that there are more than two genders, even though science has made it clear that biologically, human beings are either male or female. This inconvenient truth doesn’t sit well with them, though, and as a result, science is discarded and ignored. (Related: There has been a huge increase in the number of young people being indoctrinated with gender identity propaganda.)
In some cases, the liberals have even gone so far as to condemn those who do believe in science, and who do believe that there are only two biological genders. Back in 2016, the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) argued that the belief that the only two genders that exist are male and female should be treated as “genderism.”
The DCF officially defined “genderism” as “The system of belief that there are only two genders (men and women) and that gender is inherently tied to one’s sex assigned at birth. It holds cisgender people as superior to transgender people, and punishes or excludes those who don’t conform to society’s expectations of gender.” (Related: However you identify, there are only two types of brains: male and female.)
It’s unfortunate, but all across the country, liberals are calling for science to be turned into social justice propaganda. Science, biology and facts all point to the fact that there are only two genders – male and female – but the liberals continue marching forward with their agenda, insisting that gender exists on a spectrum and even criticizing those who disagree with them.
