Swedish Professor Under Investigation for Telling Students 'Men and Women Are Biologically Different' - Hesslow refuses to back down!
9-18-18, Renowned neuroscience Professor Dr. Germund Hesslow at Lund University in Sweden is being investigated because he told a group of students there are biological differences between men and women. He was accused by a student of making "transphobic" and "anti-feminist" statements during one of his lectures.
Hesslow received his Ph.D. in neuroscience in 1987, has refused to withdraw his comments or make an apology. He was teaching his course 'Heritage and Environment' at the university when he cited verifiable research which supports the scientific conclusion that differences between men and women are "biologically founded" and therefore genders cannot be regarded as "social constructs alone".
Hesslow said that some students, “for ideological reasons,” don't like to hear certain scientific facts about biological differences between men and women. He was summoned to a meeting by Christer Larsson, the chairman of the program board for medical education, after one female student complained that the professor had expressed his “personal anti-feminist agenda.” The university asked Hesslow to “distance” himself from two specific comments; that gay women have a “male sexual orientation” and that whether transsexuality is a sexual orientation is “a matter of definition”.
The professor refused to back away from the comments, saying that he had “done enough” already to “explain and defend” his choice of words. “At some point, one must ask for a sense of proportion among those involved. If it were to become acceptable for students to record lectures in order to find compromising formulations and then involve faculty staff with meetings and long letters, we should let go of the medical education altogether.” More here
