University investigates feminist grad student for saying men can’t become women


University of California-Santa Barbara doctoral students, alumni and “allies” are demanding the administration take action against Laura Tanner, an outspoken critic of transgender ideology and doctoral candidate in its Department of Feminist Studies.

Tanner’s Twitter feed is dominated by discussion of transgender ideology’s threat to women, including young lesbians. She believes that transgender women – biological males – are wrongly appropriating a female identity.

Her header image bluntly declares: “A woman is someone with a female body and any personality … not a ‘female personality’ and any body. Any other definition is sexism.” School newspaper The Daily Nexus reprinted several of her tweets that it considered “transphobic.”

Critics on Twitter want her removed from teaching or worse, with some lobbing personal insults at Tanner such as “absolute trash” and “dumb bitch,” according to the Daily. One declared “that bitch needs to die,” and others have targeted her for being white.

  1. I’m conflicted.

    Tanner is an idiot for going into Women’s Studies, a useless grievance ideology. She also is brilliant for pointing out the obvious that chromosomes DO NOT LIE.

    No amount of make up, wardrobe changes, acting lessons, wishful magical thinking and mutilation surgery can ever change one’s sex.

    That is a biological fact. It is just trendy and edgy right now to believe otherwise.

  2. The UC system should be shut down….
    And used as homeless shelters,
    That would be a practical use to someone.

  3. Feminists had a large part in bringing this nonsense forward. Good job, dummies! Now, suffer silently.
    Or not. *popcorn*

  4. There is nothing “brilliant” about stating the obvious. She’s just not completely brainwashed. Maybe some good old fashioned persecution will bring her out of it.

  5. Rut-roh Laura Tanner just got remanded to Intersectionality Purgatory.

    If she repeatedly apologizes and proves her atonement is genuine by agreeing with the doctrine of the left, whereby denouncing any offense she ever committed (intentional or unintentional), she may MAY be allowed to return to the community (TBD by the Woke Community) of the living dead to live out the remainder of her natural life as a “non-person”.

  6. Heh heh … she’ll repent and admit her deviationist tendencies which are going to be (somehow) President Trump’s fault.

    Stalinist show-trials are now carried out on University campuses.

    izlamo delenda est …

  7. To disagree with or be offended or nauseated by something, or someone is NOT A PHOBIA, No one fears the idiocy of the left but most sane people are offended, disgusted, or nauseated by it.

  8. So what her detractors are saying is that men make better women than women. Once again, men are superior, which is the whole rant behind feminism, right?

  9. I have always hated feminism, from childhood. In the Girl Scouts, our troop leaders were out and out commies…this was in the Pacific Northwest in the 70s. I hated “Girl Power” and I have always instructed my daughters of the evils of feminism.
    Well now! Look at what the sowers have reaped. You tell boys they are toxic, you tell the kiddies that biological sex is nothing, only gender matters, and what do you get? A whole flock of man-ewes.
    Imagine! Men, tired of their toxicity, decide to identify as women! What do you get? A dead carcass of feminism. Because men just do things better than women…except for the women things men can never possibly hope to do, like gestating babies. That sort of thing has been so vilified by women that girls will murder their babies rather than birth them and raise them.
    Thanks feminism. It has taken a while, but since your divorce from reality has been finalized, your death is sooner rather than later.
    Personally, I hope that men convert to women, take over the feminism departments and drive the women out. When girls find that these departments no longer need biological women, they might rethink this whole feminism thing and maybe walk away.
