    Prof in UK Accused of Transphobia for Saying Only Females Menstruate

    Prof in UK Accused of Transphobia for Saying Only Females Menstruate

    “The university’s LGBTQ+ society condemned the comments.”

    We have reached the point where stating scientific facts can get you accused of bigotry.

    The Daily Mail reports:

    Exeter University economics lecturer is branded transphobic by LGBT and feminist students after tweeting ‘only females menstruate’ in response to user who claimed otherwise

    A university economics lecturer has been accused of transphobia by feminist and LGBT students over a tweet in which she said ‘only female people menstruate’.

    Furious undergraduates at the University of Exeter condemned Dr Eva Poen accusing her of ‘openly singling out trans people’ in the posts.

    The row erupted when Dr Poen responded to a tweet by Twitter user which read: ‘Not everyone who menstruates is female. Not everyone who is female menstruates. Let’s shift our language.’

    The lecturer, who strongly denies accusations of transphobia, wrote back: ‘Only female people menstruate. Only female people go through menopause.’

    In another criticised tweet, in response to the insurance company Aviva promoting LGBT+ inclusion in sports, Dr Poen wrote: ‘Let’s keep female sports for FEMALE PEOPLE.

    ‘Stay in your lane, Aviva. We don’t tell you how to do insurance; it would be great if you could stop telling women to give up their hard earned place in society. Women’s sport is not yours to give away.’

    The university’s LGBTQ+ society condemned the comments.

    I really hope the end of the trans fad/lie is over soon.
    Awaiting the return to sanity and common sense is getting frustrating.

      I want it to stick around a bit longer. Once women’s sport has been thoroughly and completely crushed, then we can apply the necessary common sense to eject these freaks from the same sphere.

    She was careful about her language. Even in weird transgender world, a “female” is someone born with a vagina and uterus. Even if a “woman” is anyone who chooses to play that role.

    Female describes sex. Woman describes gender.

    “Stay in your lane, Aviva. We don’t tell you how to do insurance; it would be great if you could stop telling women to give up their hard earned place in society. Women’s sport is not yours to give away.’” is wrong even according to trans-speak. She’s describing females. She didn’t say anything about women.

    Transphobia? I’ve worked on a lot of cars over the years but I’ve never been frightened of a transmission. I’ve also changed tranny fluid and a few filters and not a single one of them even so much as giggled when I did it.

    A little ridicule of these people is called for.
