Professors at America’s top medical schools are being bullied into teaching students that biological sex is a construct and are apologizing for using the terms ‘male’ and ‘female’, students say.
Reporter Katie Herzog spoke with one student at a med school in the University of California’s system who says instructors are too scared to acknowledge the existence of two different sexes because it ‘can be considered transphobic.’
The student – identified only as Lauren – shared her story with Herzog in an article published on Bari Weiss’s Substack blog on Tuesday. https://bariweiss.substack.com/p/med-schools-are-now-denying-biological
‘I think there’s a small percentage of instructors who are true believers [in woke ideology], but most of them are probably just scared of their students,’ Lauren told Herzog.
Lauren claims that, in recent months, students have circulated a number of petitions designed to ‘name and shame’ instructors for ‘wrongspeak.’
In one of Lauren’s classes, which was recorded and posted online, a professor profusely apologized for using the term ‘pregnant woman’.
Lauren says the unnamed professor told their class: ‘I said “when a woman is pregnant,” which implies that only women can get pregnant and I most sincerely apologize to all of you.
‘I don’t want you to think that I am in any way trying to imply anything, and if you can summon some generosity to forgive me, I would really appreciate it,’ the professor states in the recording, which Herzog obtained access to.
‘It was certainly not my intention to offend anyone. The worst thing that I can do as a human being is be offensive.’
‘Since recent petitions were sent out, instructors have been far more proactive about ‘correcting’ their slides in advance or sending out emails to the school listserv if any upcoming material has ‘outdated’ terminology,’ Lauren told Herzog.
‘At first, compliance is demanded from outside, and eventually the instructors become trained to police their own language proactively.’
In another recording obtained by Herzog, one instructor can be heard stating: ‘Biological sex, sexual orientation, and gender are all constructs. These are all constructs that we have created.’
Lauren says her college also uses an ‘online forum’ which sees students correct teachers who use language they find offensive.
