Well, it took long enough, but a series of universities have finally banned the ridiculous “gender studies” from it curriculum because it is nothing but left-wing ideology and NOT a real, worthwhile field of study.
Too bad the universities that took this action are in Hungary, instead of the USA.
The Hungarian government has decided to ban the so-called field of “gender studies” from its government-run schools saying that there is no science to the field and that it is all merely left-wing “ideology.”
That is exactly right. There is also no science to the other absurd “studies” programs such as gay, black, women’s, LGBTQ, or any of those other left-wing jokes liberals pretend are serious fields of scholarship.
According to Breitbart London, the Hungarian government has had enough of wasting the people’s money on such foolishness.
Bence Rétvári, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Human Resources (EMMI), said that university degrees must be rooted in a scientific basis, whereas gender studies, “like Marxist-Leninism,” are more aptly termed ideology than science, and are inappropriate matter for university-level education.
A spokesman for the Hungarian government told Breitbart News that there is no demand for gender studies graduates in the Hungarian job market.
Few university students will be affected by the decision, since only 11 applicants were admitted this year into the gender studies program at ELTE, which has a cap of 18 students, and two more at George Soros’s CEU.
The spokesman said that programs with such low student numbers are unsustainable and “take away valuable resources from other programs, deteriorating the economic stability of universities.”
This is all good news, of course. Let’s hope this is the very start of a new trend. These absurd programs do not offer a real education. People who waste their time on this nonsense come away with a totally useless degree. And in the end, all students get is indoctrination in extremist, left-wing group think, not a serious education.
Indeed, nearly every time we hear some whack job “professor” attacking conservatives or Republicans it is some fool in one of these fake “disciplines.”
In 2017, Lőrinc Nacsa, the leader of the Christian Democrat (KDNP) youth wing, had it exactly right when he said: “We must raise awareness to the fact that these programs are doing nothing to lift up our nation. In fact, they are destroying the values-centered mode of thinking that is still present in the countries of Central Europe.”
Sadly, he is thinking of a Central Europe as it was 100 years ago, not as it is today. Most of Europe is now so far to the left that “gender studies” seems down right traditional.
