Hungary ends funding for gender studies programs, calling them ‘an ideology’ not science

The Hill-

Hungary has ended funding for gender studies degrees at its universities, citing low enrollment and saying the field of study is an “ideology, not a science.”

Prime Minister Viktor Orban signed a decree that went into effect Saturday, effectively eliminating the degree program, according to Reuters.

The decree removes gender studies from the list of approved master’s programs. Students already enrolled are allowed to remain in the program.

“The Hungarian government is of the clear view that people are born either men or women,” Orban’s chief of staff Gergely Gulyas said in August. “They lead their lives the way they think best, but beyond this, the Hungarian state does not wish to spend public funds on education in this area.”

Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen said gender studies “has no business in universities” because it is “an ideology, not a science,” according to Agency France-Press.

  1. Gee, recently went to a rescue ‘pet’ shelter. There was no confusion about their ‘gender’. To insure it they did the right thing. No worries ever for the future. Shame this cannot be determine for ‘humans’ as well. Waves to Jazz Jennings enjoy your learned mental illness forever!

  2. For those going for an advanced degree in lesbian conflict resolution it’s going to be tough to find another course credit to get her requirements in.

  3. Hungary doesn’t allow immigration from Islam and they don’t welcome Soros.
    Sounds like they have their shit together.

  4. The way things are going, if the Dems ever re-gain power, Hungary looks more and more like the place to move to.

    (I’ve had my eye on Slovenia for years. Was already looking at real estate there in anticipation of a Hillary victory in 2016.)

  5. The land of Teller, Szilard, and Wigner … kinda makes you wonder how they got hoodwinked into that bullshit in the first place …

    izlamo delenda est …

  6. Well this just sucks big ones..

    What am I supposed to do with my Gender Studies major and Hungarian language minor degree now?

  7. But…but…but what about all the poor oppressed victyms of sexist-assigned binary gender roles? Oh, what a world, what a world…

  8. The 3 countries in Europe that are the most “normal” are 3 that had to live under the Soviet hammer and understand what it’s like to live under the socialist SJW crap. They are probably the most pro-American as well.
    Well done Hungary, well done.

  9. Apropos of nothing, but how come trannies got to decide we normal people are to be called “cisgender”? No one ever asked us. They get all butt hurt at being called trannies but they get to label us with the “cisgender” title. That’s not even a thing. You are either male or female.

    Great! In a few decades, it’ll be safe for me to trust the technology of pre-sharpened pecils. At least from one supplier.

  11. Peter – – Hungary is a boring country with mostly boring people. Slovenia is beautiful, way friendlier, almost as conservative, and is not land-locked. Also more people know English there.
