Professor & Head of Department

At a UK university

says that unis should consider restricting speech stating that

....Male. People. Are. Not. Actually. Women ....

Because it might justify hatred, insult or ridicule...

" and this could give rise to crimes being committed"
"talk might encourage a lack of respect for the human dignity of trans people that would strike at, and potentially diminish, their human rights and freedoms."

Restriction on speech may be necessary "to prevent crime and/or protect the rights of others"
He goes on to say 'restrictions on freedom of speech in universities are extremely rare ...because almost all academics accept the exercise of freedom carries with it respect the equal dignity of all human beings in a democratic and pluralistic society"
If you don't think this is mind-bendingly oppressive, totalitarian scary shit, I don't know what is.
People who know there are two sexes (of course!) but think this is storm-in-a-teacup, toxic, hysterical or prudish, 'can't you just be kind'... (or ,frankly I don't know what they think)....

At what point do to people say wait a second... We cannot give in to this?
