The latest academic madness unveiled: Gender Reparations
By Thomas Lifson

Coming soon to a prestigious university campus: an academic conference on gender reparations. This is leaving me deeply confused. I have been lectured for several years now that gender is a “construct” and that each of us can determine on a minute-by-minute what our gender is. Some of us purportedly are, as the brilliant intellects of the left phrase it, “gender-fluid.”

So who would pay what to whom?

Unfortunately, reading the announcement of the conference and its program leave me confused. But then again, I am a “layman” (layperson? Laygenderfluid?) not qualified to understand the jargon (despite my Harvard PhD in sociology)

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Throwing our allegiances to political parties in the long run gave away our liberty.
