Professor of Neurophysiology Germund Hesslow may no longer be allowed to teach a nature versus nurture course at Lund University’s medical programme in the south of Sweden
He’s been asked to apologise for lecturing about biological and anatomical differences between men and women. There is also a call for his replacement.
Some of the students, who identify as transgenders have been outraged by his lectures and argue that it violates the University’s core values and equality plan to suggest that the differences between men and women are not social constructs.
They are demanding an apology, and that Hesslow be replaced by a lecturer who tells the aspiring doctors about the patriarchal oppression against women and LGBT people instead.
In a letter to the management, a female student writes that Hesslow is “transfobic”, and that he by claiming the existence of biological gender differences has an “anti-feminist agenda”.
The letter was written on the basis of hearsay. The female student had not taken the course herself but was told about Hesslow’s alleged transphobia and anti-feminism by other students.
That canary in the birdcage, Sweden, is now telling us that even the STEM subjects are being attacked by the PC left (who are too dopey to actually do STEM themselves, you understand).
The Inquisition of the New Religion is intent on rolling back science.
