So because you do not like the subject you figure it's justifiable enough that it be banned.

You must think very highly of yourself, no?

Lot of degrees that would be banned if the criteria was simply a "waste of time"

Banning subjects? Quite a dangerous precedent to set.

Secondly, precisely how many the students in the UK are doing gender studies degrees? The number is a lot lower than angry men on the internet would have you believe.

Gender studies is a field for interdisciplinary study devoted to gender identity and gendered representation as central categories of analysis. This field includes women's studies (concerning women, feminism, gender, and politics), men's studies and queer studies.[1] Sometimes, gender studies is offered together with study of sexuality.

If people want to “waste their time” doing a degree let them. It doesn’t impact your life.

Dumb field but shouldn't be outlawed if some self styled social justice warriors want to take it

I think it should be banned because it’s putting “vulnerable” students in debt , barely any career paths to go off and effects the tax payers simultaneously. They can study it at home , you don’t need a degree for it.😆

Not banned but I think courses like this should cost less and/or come with graduate opportunity warning statistics (assuming the graduate opportunities are lacking which I do assume).

Why? It's a subsection of sociology, and given how much gender influences the world, a valuable field of study.
