The NY Post has an article headlined Researchers condemn rise of ‘fascist ideologues’ after students send mocking responses to LGBTQ survey.

Academic researchers condemned students’ irreverent and offensive responses to an LGBTQ survey, claiming the pushback indicates “fascist ideologues” are “living ‘inside the house’ of engineering and computer science.”

In an article for the Bulletin of Applied Transgender Studies, academics from Oregon State University wrote about their shock at receiving sarcasm and mockery in response to their research into undergraduate LGBTQ students studying in STEM fields.

The researchers were bothered by the responses on 50 out of 349 questionnaires.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. While math can be a theoretical exercise, the other three are grounded in the Real World. If the Real World results of an experiment fail, the Scientific Method sends you back to refine your hypothesis, and engineers and technologists can’t use wishful thinking to force a design to work in spite of the limits imposed by Nature. As Scotty observed, “Ye cannae change the Laws of Physics.”

Transgenderism clearly rejects the biological basis of sex. It is anti-scientific, so I’m not surprised that many of the STEM students responding to the survey were derisive.

The research team declared that the mockery they received “had a profound impact on morale and mental health,” particularly for one transgender researcher who was “already in therapy for anxiety and depression regarding online anti-trans rhetoric.”

Profound impact on mental health? Really? On a transgender person who denies the objective reality of his or her DNA?

The scholars concluded the “malicious responses” indicate that fascism has become a common ideology in engineering and computer science academia.

So it’s now fascism to believe the Real World limits biology places on our lives.

The Truth is out there, but I doubt that it can be found in the Bulletin of Applied Transgender Studies.

  1. I guess the research team doesn’t understand Mother Nature Kills, and She doesn’t Care about DEI. The FIU bridge disaster is proof of that. There were SO many levels of fail with that project, but if they had just closed the damn road nobody would have died…

  2. In DEI STEM, conformity of thought is required in all areas of life. Or else you’re a fascist. Or something. Gotta do a re-think on that one.

  3. I am very much concerned over the prospect of flying in an airplane designed or piloted by anyone whose understanding of physics rests on a foundation of

    2 + 2 = 5

  4. Done properly, all engineering is a meritocracy. And we can’t have that, now can we. Otherwise those at the bottom of the hierarchy will feel bad.
    A HS friend of mine, from a poorish, rural farming family rose to the the Chief Engineer (at that time) who had to pass on all the bridges and tunnels built for US railroads. He got there by demonstrated hard work and ability.
