Biology Deniers Freak Out When Biologist Say Men and Women are Different

Leftists students had a meltdown that was caught on video when a discussion panel scandalously agreed that men and women are biologically different.

Can someone please teach these students basic biology?

Portland State University held an event on February 17, titled “We Need To Talk About Diversity,” moderated by PSU philosophy professor Peter Boghossian. Also on the panel were former Evergreen State biologist Heather E. Heying, writer Helen Pluckrose, and the infamous James DaMore, a former Google engineer who was fired due to outrageously claiming within a memo that men and women have biological differences. Truly shocking.

During the discussion, Boghossian asked Pluckrose to explain what “social constructivism” meant.

“It’s the idea that all of our traits, our characteristics, abilities, cognitive, psychological, behavioral, are learned from societal norms; the idea that there can be innate or biological or inherited differences are dismissed. And so, we’re in a position where if there is injustice, or if there is an imbalance anywhere, sort of an inequality of representation, then the explanation for that can be the societal injustice,” Pluckrose responded.

Boghossian then asked Heying, “What can we take from what Helen said to help us make sense of James’ memo”

“James argues, accurately, that there are differences between men and women. This is a strange position to be in, to be arguing for something that is so universally and widely accepted within biology. What is not as widely accepted is that culture is also evolutionary; but I’m going to argue that both biology and culture are both evolutionary,” Heying replied.

“Let’s look at differences between men and women that are explicitly anatomical and physiological; are men taller than women on average? Does anyone take offense at that fact? I would say you could be irritated by it; you could be irritated by the fact that women have to be the ones who gestate and lactate; you could be irritated by a lot of truths—”

Then Heying was cut off by a young woman with green hair, who stood up and staged a walkout with her fellow protesters.

Heying continued to talk as the protesters caused a commotion, sabotaging the sound system and knocking things over in the auditorium. Someone asked for security and Boghossian interrupted Heying to ask, “did they shut off the volume? Can everybody hear?”

The footage then shows a woman being led away and isolated by the police, as she shouts “He’s a piece of s***! That is not okay. Even the women in there have been brainwashed!”

A male protester is then seen ranting “[we] should not listen to fascism. It should not be tolerated in civil society. Nazis are not welcome in civil society.”

You’d be forgiven for thinking that these protesters had been at a different event.

The footage cuts back to the aforementioned young woman, who calls out “F*** the police! Power to the people!” several whole metres away from the police, before exiting the building.

Stunning and brave.

Inside, the panel continued on, as Boghossian goes on to say:

“All right, we’re going to raise our voices. The conversation’s going to go on,” prompting cheers and applause from the audience. He continued, “Let me be crystal clear: that sort of behavior is unacceptable in civilized society. And if that person is a student, they should be given a warning, and if they do it again they should be expelled from the university.”

Hopefully the protesters left to take a science class or two.

After the 2016 election, former Mexican president Vincente Fox posted a video with a sign reading “Mexico will not pay for the f—– wall.” Last October, Fox said “Donald, you suck so much at this job” and compared the president to a “worn-out baseball glove gripping a turd.” After the recent Florida high-school shooting Fox ramped up the rhetoric on HBO’s “Real Time” with Bill Maher.

“When you speak out of the White House this aggressive, violent language, when you discriminate, when you’re a racist, that’s what you get,” said Fox. “We need harmony, we need love, we need happy communities, and those concepts don’t come out of his mouth.”

And so on. While he talks trash on Trump and the USA, the former Mexican boss has been pretty quiet about violence inflicted by Mexico’s ruling Partido Revolucionario Institucional. As it happens, this year marks a milestone for perhaps the worst example.

October 2, 2018 will mark 50 years since Mexican troops opened fire on “hundreds of student demonstrators, calling for greater democracy.” The Tlateloco Square massacre, on the eve of the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, claimed more than 300 victims and the PRI regime has been covering it up ever since.

“The army surrounded the square and fired from every angle on thousands of youths,” Claudia Sierra Campuzano’s History of Mexico: An Analytical Approach explained decades later, “leaving hundreds of dead and wounded, thousands of arrests.” As the author told the New York Times, the regime followed with “the persecution and imprisonment of student leaders.”

The Mexican government approved Campuzano’s book but in 2003 the Public Education Ministry yanked History of Mexico from shelves and classrooms. Campuzano told the Times it was “like the Spanish Inquisition,” and “a crack in the facade of democracy in this country.”

Mexican president Vincente Fox, supposedly a brave reformer, offered little if any protest. In 2001, Fox ordered creation of a “special prosecutor for crimes of the past” but nothing of substance came to light.

In 2014, Mexican student teachers commandeered busses to attend demonstrations commemorating the Tlatelolco massacre. Mexican police attacked the students, killing six and dragging off 43 others. The PRI government claimed they had been taken by a drug gang and incinerated in a garbage dump.

Six months after the murder-kidnapping, Vincente Fox appeared on Univision and said “it’s about time” the parents give up their demands on the Mexican government. “Now they need to accept reality,” Fox said, and “the country has to keep advancing.” Miriam Trujillo, cousin of missing student Jonas Trujillo, said Fox’s comments were “repulsive.” If that seems a stretch, imagine if Fox told the parents of the Florida shooting to get over their sorrow and move on.

In similar style, Vincente Fox calls the president of the United States a racist while ignoring racism in his own country. Mexico’s ruling class is overwhelming composed of descendants from the Iberian Peninsula of Europe, and current president Enrique Peña Nieto is whiter than Fidel Castro or Desi Arnaz. Non-white Mexicans face blatant discrimination, such as ads seeking “no one dark,” but the racism runs much deeper.

Mexican philosopher José Vasconcelos, minister of education from 1921-24, believed the mix of Indian and European peoples was La Raza Cósmica that transcends all other races.

“I never understood exactly what the ‘cosmic race’ implied,” the late Mexican-American Communist Bert Corona told Memoirs of Chicano History author Mario Garcia. “In my opinion, however, it was close to the kind of German racial superiority theory supported by Hitler. In fact, Vasconcelos himself became a fascist. Many Chicanos considered Vasconcelos and his views of the ‘cosmic race’ as an inspiration. But I recall Vasconcelos as a fascist.”

According to Corona, militant irredentist Reies Tijerina “had a definite race theory” and “the concept certainly seems to imply that we as Latinos, Mexicanos or Chicanos are superior to everyone else.” As Corona explained, “I couldn’t accept all this. We’re not a superior race.”

The cosmic race theory informs groups such as the National Council of La Raza and MEChA, the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanix de Aztlán. The notion that the razaists are superior also underlies Mexico’s sense of entitlement to the U.S. economy.

Mexicans in the USA will send home nearly $30 billion this year, as Victor Davis Hanson calculates. If the official number of 11 million illegals wired that sum, it would work out to $2,700 per person per year, and a household of five would average about $1,100 per month sent to Mexico. That would be impossible without the subsidies of the American taxpayer, so Hanson wonders “whether the U.S. could tax that sum to build the wall or at least declare that proof of remittances disqualifies one for public support.”

“Mexico will not pay for the f—— wall,” proclaims Vincente Fox. If President Trump tweeted that Fox should STFU, that would be understandable. On the other hand, it would be better for the president to ignore Vincente Fox. This gutless PRI mouthpiece deserves not the slightest attention from anybody – unless he starts talking about deadly government violence in Mexico. Students and journalists, mark your calendar for October 2.
