A report shows a University of Cincinnati student complained that her Women’s Gender Studies professor had given her a failing grade because she had used the phrase “biological women,” which the professor saw as “exclusionary.”
The class assignment had to be on a feminist-related subject. Due to the prevalence of biological male “transgender” athletes in women’s sports, 20-year-old Olivia Krolczyk chose to focus her research on female athletes. Krolczyk got a lousy score since she used the term “biological women” in her proposal.
Krolczyk uploaded a video on TikTok revealing her score and the instructor’s comments.
The project was deemed ‘solid,’ but the professor noted that the term ‘biological women’ are discriminatory and not permitted in this class because they further reinforce heteronormativity.
She received a zero grade. Krolczyk wondered how she could complete her project if she were not allowed to use the term “biological women,” which is the topic of her project.
Krolczyk said in a follow-up video that she planned to submit her work and communications with the instructor to the school’s Office of Equal Opportunity.
In reaction to the professor’s claims, Krolczyk stated that, apparently, science is fake.
Last month, a group of House and Senate Republicans wrote a letter to the director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) asking for information about a study it supported called “Psychosocial Functioning in Transgender Youth after 2 Years of Hormones.” The study was linked to the suicides of two young people.
Reports show Senators Rand Paul and Marco Rubio and Representatives Andy Biggs, Josh Breechen, and Lauren Boebert, among others, sent a message to Dr. Lawrence Tabak expressing their immense concerns about a study that involved 315 transgender subjects between the ages of 12 and 20 who were given cross-sex hormones. Two hundred forty individuals were under the age of 18.
The letter stated that two young individuals perished by committing suicide, and 11 reported having suicidal thoughts during the study. The researchers released their paper despite serious adverse events and considered the study successful because they claimed that cross-sex hormones improved physical appearance and psychosocial functioning.
