There is not exactly a lot to do within gender studies.

You eventually have to jazz it up by brining race to the party; and it's only acceptable to deride or challenge white culture in the West.

We may laugh at all this but there's actually a serious side to this progressively surreal atmosphere. Many of those Antifa boys and girls have been primed at the Humanities department, there was a survey somewhere with more than half of students fancying Socialism as the way forward and, subjective as they are, that sounds pretty much on the money. What type of education system educates people into that?

The type that just wants to sell a product, like any other business. The artificial expansion of higher education has led to an explosion in the number of useless courses that serve no other purpose than accommodating everyone regardless of academic potential and to just plainly soak them up for cash. Their problem if they sign up, that's the deal.

Then they're released into the community with all that phoney education, what are they going to do with their qualifications? They will become frustrated and even angrier, it's all white men and capitalism's fault. All this sociological stuff achieves is to divide people, whether that happens by chance or design is the question.

I think the irony is that the announcement itself created a lot of material for the course to study 🤣

Expect an increase in the far Right.

Is this an entire degree or a module or something? Honestly sounds more like a daft tangent for a politics/sociology degrees to go on rather than a degree in itself.

Either way I can't see anything particularly academically sound here. May as well have a course on angry black women while we're at it, would be equally as useless.

Bonus meme: The instructor for the course is a white bloke

If a black person with a MAGA hat prove that Trump isn't racist, as many on this forum like to claim, isn't the fact that the professor is white proof that his course isn't "anti-white", by their own logic?

Because nobody comments on the feel-good threads that I make. This forum just comments on the contentious issues - nothing I can do about that.
That is so true. This website is more toxic than a nuclear reactor

More anti-male hate from degenerate SJWs.
I say if they hate white men so much, they should do without the funding they provide through taxpayer subsidised loans and through the other sources of funds these universities leech off.

Are these students the same ones who will go onto claim they didn't become doctors because 'muh the patriarch'?

Here come the angry white male keyboard warriors to explain how offended they are by this.
Pretty discriminatory of you to support this tbh

Unis must be good with their sales pitches, it has to be hard work to convince someone to part with their money in exchange for this type of thing. What sort of path do they show their customers, where are they to go with their qualifications? Admittedly, this sociological field is a growing industry and a few will find a slot within it and even bigger riches in cases but the rest will just get their worth back for their investment. Capitalism at its worst, if only they knew it when kicking shopfronts in anger.

Sold a scratch card with no prize, they have to take it out on something or someone. It's a safe bet that whoever signs up to this has been primed into hating Trump and becoming angry and agitated at any mention of the man at an earlier stage. No MAGA hats in that classroom, right? No Republicans either, a truly segregated place.

Come to think of it, Unis like this benefit a lot from vast numbers of immigrants. Legal or illegal, don't matter. Politicians chase votes, big business chase cheap labour, the legal profession is busy processing the thousands coming over the border, Unis chase customers of any type. The more the better, a wide range of products to suit everyone at the right price. No English? No problemo.
