Professor: "I do not believe that gender identity supersedes sex."

@UniofOxford students: This is a prohibited belief. We will investigate you & lodge a complaint if you express it. You are compelled to believe that men can transform themselves into women by uttering a spell.
2) Open debate and critical thinking on sex and gender have been replaced by dogma at universities. This complaint is one example.

@DrHenryWimbush, publicly reviled by the @UniofOxford student newspaper, is accused of several transgressions of thought and expression, as follows:
3) Accusation #1:

Sociology professor Dr. Biggs (DrHenryWimbush) published an article questioning inflated suicide numbers used by trans activists. His analysis is based on official statistics.

Oxford Students apparently deem such an act suspicious.…
4) Accusation #2:

This tweet, deemed unacceptable by @UniofOxford students:

5) @UniofOxford students rightly suspect the above tweet was in connection with the case of Charles/Charlotte Clymer, who forced his way into the women's toilets at a Washington restaurant and was promptly supported by the mayor.

Long explanatory thread:
6) By introducing Prof. Biggs's tweet into their complaint, the @UniofOxford students clearly imply that the rights of males to forcibly enter female spaces may not be questioned, provided that right is claimed by specific procedures e.g. the use of lipstick, a dress or a pronoun
7) Accusation #3:

This tweet, expressing Prof. Biggs's disagreement with the Lancet view that "gender-nonconforming" children should be guided towards medical gender transition based on their own (immature) perceptions of what sex and gender roles mean.

8) Though the word "eugenics" in Prof. Biggs's tweet is in my opinion overstated, the underlying concern, expressed in the hashtag #transthegayaway, is that children who might later have turned out to be gay are instead pressured into transition by the dominant trans ideology.
9) Prof. Biggs's concern is echoed in an article published today in @TheEconomist, to wit:

"...outdated gender stereotypes have come roaring back under self-ID. Children who may have turned out gay are being channelled instead into a trans identity."…
10) Therefore if the @TheOxStu wishes to maintain their complaint against Prof. Biggs for being concerned about lesbian and gay youth, and if @UniofOxford intends to pursue this, then they should also take @TheEconomist to task for the same concern.
11) Accusation #4:

Prof. Biggs has attended events at @Womans_Place_UK and written about them.

(This is a campaign formed to ensure women’s voices are heard in the debate on upcoming gender legislation.)
12) Every meeting @Womans_Place_UK has held to discuss the impact of proposed legislation on women has been disrupted by trans activists.

That the mere attendance by a @UniofOxford professor is grounds for a complaint against him is shocking, and yet another act of intimidation.
13) Accusation #5: Prof Biggs "misgendered New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard"

Hubbard is a male who previously unsuccessfully competed in men's weighlifting & subsequently won 1st place in a women's competition. Trans activists support him in this.…
14) Accusation #6: Prof Biggs posted this meme

@TheOxStu concludes:"The implication appears to be a ridicule of supposing that gender identity would matter in such a situation."

Indeed. Women are subjugated on the basis of their sex not their feelings.

15) Accusation #7: Prof Biggs states that "gender-critical feminists almost invariably outmatch transactivists in debate"

What a self-own. Need I elaborate, since they prove his point.

16) Accusation #8: The @TheOxStu doesn't like Prof. Bigg's bio because they think he mocks the multitudinous gender labels & cites 2+2=4 in reference to Orwell's liking for truth.


(as you can see from the screenshot, Prof. Biggs follows me; much honoured @MrHenryWimbush!)

@TheOxStu is offended that Prof. Biggs:

- likes data
- has concern for lesbians and gays
- attends women's meetings on law
- questions early medicalization of children
- has concern for women's sports & rights
- thinks feminists are smart
- has a British sense of humour
But: How did @TheOxStu link Prof. Biggs to @MrHenryWimbush?

- how did they get the partial phone number and the Yahoo mail?
- how did they see the Yahoo mail was linked to the @UniofOxford mail?
- what are these "Twitter's various functions"?

Did they try to hack his account?
So. The vice-chair of the Oxford University LGBTQ+ Advisory Board stated that he is "concerned by Bigg's PERSONAL VIEWS" and "finds it hard to believe he can say these things".

Hence a complaint to @UniofOxford.

There's some thought policing for you right there.
20) And they're coming for the rest of you too.

"@TheOxStu is currently investigating other claims of harassment & inappropriate comments by staff members of @UniofOxford. If you have experience of this, & would be happy to be quoted anonymously, please use this anonymous form."
21) This is bullying, harassment and intimidation by trans activists which has had an absolutely chilling effect on the expression of opinion in many universities, among students and staff.

I hope @UniofOxford stands up to this.
22) @TheOxStu claims to be Oxford University's biggest student newspaper. As such, one would expect some factual reporting & journalistic integrity. There is none.

The rant against Dr. Biggs says his full statement can be found on his website.
But craftily, there's no link.
23) Instead, I'll leave you with Prof. Biggs's report on a meeting on women and the law held on 25 April 2018 at Oxford, which trans activists tried to block.

The title is "Free speech at Oxford: Do women have the right to meet to discuss legislation?"…
24) Last tweet in solidarity with all academics who want to think and debate and discuss and exchange and teach, but are currently subjected to intense pressure to express only the currently admissible views.

We'll get there.
Postscriptum: The replies to this stinking smear DO NOT DISAPPOINT
