University Professor Loses Admin Job For Stating That “Men Cannot Get Pregnant”

Kathleen Lowrey is an associate professor of anthropology at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Alberta, in Canada. She is also serving as the chair of the undergraduate program – an administrative role which includes duties such as chairing a committee about courses, approving transfer credits, and running a special seminar for honors students in the department.

She’s also a feminist. However, according to some anonymous students and the higher-ups of her University, she is not the right kind of feminist. Because she believes that women are … women. Even worse, she believes that men cannot be women because they don’t have a vagina.

These extreme and radical views caused her to become “problematic” as she was pressured to leave her administrative role. When she refused to do so, she was fired.

Lowrey says she was told in meetings that complaints, made to the dean of students and the university’s Office of Safe Disclosure and Human Rights, were that her views on feminism were making students feel unsafe and there were concerns this was driving students away from choosing anthropology as a major. She doesn’t know exactly the nature of the complaints — or who made them — because they were made informally and anonymously, she said.

“My chair was hoping that for the good of the department I would resign from my position.”

She said she was also told she had been discouraging students from organizing Pride events, which she denies. It was this claim which led her to conclude the complaints centred around her views on gender.

Following a subsequent meeting with the dean of the faculty, she received a letter saying she couldn’t effectively continue in the role and her leaving would be in the best interests of the department. Lowrey said the letter didn’t expound upon the reasons for her dismissal, and she maintains she has never been given proper reasons for her dismissal in writing.

Lowrey is not a conservative that is looking to “own the libs”. She actually ascribes her intellectual formation to Marxism and radical feminism. While this kind of background should receive an enthusiastic thumbs-up from the social justice crowd, it is not enough anymore.

That’s because Lowrey describes herself as a “gender-critical feminist” which considers biological sex of primordial importance in fighting for women’s rights. While, only a few years ago, this precept was the norm in feminist circles, it is now deemed bad and “transphobic”.

Until what seems like a few minutes ago, there was nothing controversial about this opinion. But now there is. The only “correct” opinion to hold is that gender expression trumps biology in any rights-based claims. And in academic circles, Lowrey’s views, which she is at no pains to hide on campus and off, are a form of apostasy that cries out for punishment.

Lowrey boils her views on feminism down to a few key ideas: Men cannot get pregnant, lesbians don’t have penises, and biological sex is real. These views apparently made students feel “unsafe” and  “caused them harm”.

We are talking about a University (a place of the highest learning possible) being “harmed” by the pre-school teaching that “boys have weewees”.

Kmart in Australia Unveils Same-Sex Family Dolls Targeting Children as Young as 3

Kmart stores in Australia are selling a line of same-sex family dolls, complete with two children and a pet, oriented toward children as young as three-years-old.

According to Aussie news site 10Daily, the store has released “family playset” dolls for children age 3 years and older, which include two fathers, or two mothers, as well as a young child, a baby, a dog and a picnic set.

The dolls are supposedly “inclusive for same sex couples,” according to 10Daily, which does not explain why children as young as three would be concerned with the dolls’ gender.

The article goes on to quote various adult Facebook commenters who expressed approval of the dolls, under the headline “Kmart Fans Applaud Same-Sex Family Doll Sets.”

However, some “Kmart fans” quoted in the article did not “applaud” or seem excited over the dolls, with some pointing out “Kids don’t notice what [gender] the dolls are,” and another saying “no thanks.”

Another Aussie news site, 7News, laid the LGBT propaganda thick with the headline “Kmart launches same-sex family doll sets and people are absolutely loving them,” however several commenters on the 7News Facebook page pushed back against the dolls, asking if they were really necessary.

Chick-fil-A sales have more than doubled since LGBT boycott began

The third largest US fast food restaurant chain, Chick-fil-A, has more than doubled its annual sales since the company was boycotted by gay rights activists for donating to organizations that opposed same-sex marriage in 2012. In 2018, the chain had $10.5 billion in total sales, which amounts to a 16.7% increase in a year, according to the Journal & Courier outlet. It makes the increase in Chick-fil-A’s annual sales bigger than that of Starbucks, which is America’s second largest restaurant chain behind McDonald’s. The exponential growth of Chick-fil-A’s profits and the chain’s expansion, by nearly 700 restaurants, remained unhindered despite the company facing a massive backlash in 2012 when sales totaled $4.6 billion. Back then CEO Dan T. Cathy, the son of founder and devout Baptist S. Truett Cathy, said that he supported traditional families. Earlier, the firm found itself in hot water after supporting Christian organizations, including those that opposed the legalization of…
