Hungary Keeps looking Better
#1
Is Hungary's Viktor Orban the only guy in the EU that has any common sense? Thankfully, Russia has Putin.
Quote:Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban recently issued a decree that eliminated “gender studies” as an academic discipline worthy of accreditation and financial support. In June a magazine owned by a friend of Orban’s published a list of academics it accused of dabbling in “gay rights and gender science.”

Zsolt Semjen, Orban’s deputy, has declared that gender studies “has no business in universities” because it is “an ideology, not a science.” He also added that it is a useless degree because “no one wants to employ a gender-ologist.” Jim Goad

I tend to agree that gender studies "has no business universities". I also think that a head of state "has no business in universities" Especially making "decrees". Kinda scary.

You mean like Title IX, among hundreds of other things?

The only problem I have with Title IX was that it was the impetus for the UW to get rid of the men's varsity baseball program. That, and all the empty seats in the stadium.

Regarding the "hundreds of other things"... Those are what makes a university a university. If you are looking for only job training and not a rounded education, a tech school would be best.

Can you see your own hypocrisy and aren't you embarrassed?

I understand civil rights is not your thing, but Title IX was civil rights legislation. It effects publicly funded institutions , but doesn't really have much to do with education.
