Welcome to the 21st century, where it is now scary and "unsafe" for professors to teach literal biological facts.
University of Alberta fired professor Kathleen Lowery from her position as associate chair of undergraduate programs in the Department of Anthropology. The reason? She was being 'gender-critical' in expressing that biological sex is real.
The university declared that it was "unsafe" for students, and that "one or more students had gone to the University’s Office of Safe Disclosure and Human Rights and the Dean of Students, André Costopolous, to complain about her without filing formal complaints."
"Something very wrong has happened at the University of Alberta. A professor has been fired from part of her academic job for views on sex and gender that break with current orthodoxy." -Carolyn Sale @ArtsSquared @RyersonCFE
We stand with Kathleen Lowrey!https://t.co/jC8M2T2K4I

Post Millennial reports:
Her employer empowered students to damage their teacher's career and livelihood. It is the type of power which todays' students are accustomed to wielding, much as the Red Guards routinely punished their teachers for "wrong thinking" during the Cultural Revolution.
The University of Alberta justified its decision on the basis that a student, or students, informally complained to its Office of Safe Disclosure and Human Rights that Lowery made the learning environment feel "unsafe" for them by voicing gender critical feminist ideas.
As a teacher of young people with curious minds, Lowery said her method is to summarize her views on the first day of any course about sex or gender, along with a declaration that students are not required to agree with her. She took this approach to her 2020 course on the "Anthropology of Women."
How could a teacher even communicate that knowledge without mentioning biological sex? This is beyond absurd.
So much similarity to what happened to me: no official complaint made, but institution willing to roll over on its own commitment to free enquiry with the slightest commercial pressure https://t.co/n4tpvIPFS3

In Miami, Florida as protests were still occurring in the streets, some idiotic Antifa punks thought it would be a fun idea to attack a police car in the middle of the road as it was proceeding along with a number of other police vehicles and officers.
As they are proceeding to make their way down the street these morons decided to run up on the car and smash the windshield of the police car with their skateboards.
