A Swedish university is investigating a professor for “anti-feminism” and “transphobia” after he said there are biological differences between men and women. He is being urged to retract his comments.

The professor, Germund Hesslow, who works in neurophysiology at Lund University, was accused by a student of making “transphobic” and “anti-feminist” statements in a lecture — but he has refused to back down.

During his course on ‘Heritage and Environment’ at the leading academic institution, Hesslow cited empirical research which supports the idea that there are differences between men and women which are “biologically founded” and therefore genders cannot be regarded as “social constructs alone”.

The complainant suggested that Hesslow’s comments were at odds with the Swedish “value base” — a concept which requires all schools in Sweden to adhere to a common ethical policy, which includes upholding values like egalitarianism, individual freedom and equality of the sexes.

In an interview with RT, Hesslow said that some students, “for ideological reasons,” don't like to hear certain scientific facts about biological differences between men and women. He said that the comments which prompted the complaint were not even necessarily part of his course material, but that they were answers to students’ questions during the course of the lecture.

“If you answer such a question you are under severe time pressure, you have to be extremely brief — and I used wording which I think was completely innocuous, and that apparently the student didn't,” Hesslow said.

Hesslow was summoned to a meeting by Christer Larsson, the chairman of the program board for medical education, after one female student complained that the professor had expressed his“personal anti-feminist agenda,” Academic Rights Watch reported.

The university asked Hesslow to “distance” himself from two specific comments; that gay women have a “male sexual orientation” and that whether transsexuality is a sexual orientation is “a matter of definition”. The professor refused to back away from the comments, saying that he had “done enough” already to “explain and defend” his choice of words.

“At some point, one must ask for a sense of proportion among those involved. If it were to become acceptable for students to record lectures in order to find compromising formulations and then involve faculty staff with meetings and long letters, we should let go of the medical education altogether,” he said in a written reply to Larsson.

In his response, Hesslow also rejected the notion that he had a “political agenda” and said his only agenda was to let scientific fact, not new conventional wisdom, steer university proceedings. “Ideology, politics and prejudice form the conventional outlook, not science,” he said.

Asked whether or not he thought the incident had been a “misunderstanding” or part of some broader pattern, Hesslow told RT that he believed the student in question was simply “someone who dislikes the lecture and is trying to find various pretexts for attacking it.”

Hesslow also told RT that the university rector had ordered a “full investigation” into the case and said that there “have been discussions about trying to stop the lecture or get rid of me, or have someone else give the lecture or not give the lecture at all.” He also suggested that the university could use his age as a “pretext” to take him off the course, because he is past retirement age.

 -They are confused by PC. Can't distinguish between biology and civil rights.

-No wonder they have the highest suicide rate in the world; these folks are mentally castrated by the leftist pandemic

- Males and females are totally different, which fact might slap the face of the Snowflake SocialMediaWarrior wretches. For example male resting heart rates are usually LOWER than female resting heart rates. Low heart rate is associated with crime, antisocial behavior, which is why more males are criminals than women. Snowflakes are trying to equalize women and men in military. Try make a female soldier carry a wounded heavy-set male soldier in battle.

- Oh my, those words are so very harmless and not offensive at all. I wonder what the same woman would have said if I had held the lecture in question. I'd describe homosexuality in no more than three words: "Homosexuality is abnormal." It's like science has to conform 100% to ideology, and the political vanguard don't care just how innocent the breach is. Which is why I think we should send battering rams their way, and not mere slaps.

- I found out that we were different at the age of 5. Been happily confirming it at every opportunity ever since.

- It sounds as if the student needs some extra lessons in how to define a man and a woman! This is absolutely ridiculous and when a lecturer has their integrity questioned like this, then the student should be booted out of the course! They are not fit to follow the medical profession, they are too damned stupid!

- This is a crazy, crazy world.

- Of course men and women are biologically different! As an alien visitor, I would first notice the chest, and then between the legs! That's even before scanning inside, under the flesh and inside the head...

- There are plenty of biological differences. If you know what to look for you can tell the gender of a skeleton. Women and men have some different internal organs to each other. Men's and women's brains develop differently and have some different neural connections to each other. Not to mention the obvious visible differences between male and female anatomy.

- Imagine! A Swedish scientist saying something that people have known for thousands of years!

- impossible, , how come they are different? women get menstrual cycle, and men also get menstrual cycle. no difference!

- humans must go... is the 21 century and we still in gender wars while kids are in hunger, people killing for religion and wars for oil and gas... ho well i got to enjoy the ultimate show in the first row



Swedish church pushes for neutral gender reference to Jesus

A church in a Swedish city has defended its choice of gender-neutral pronoun ‘hen’ in reference to Jesus in an advertisement. The church insists the word gives “new perspective.”

In November, the largest religious institution in the country, the Church of Sweden, advised its clergy to avoid terms like ‘Lord’and ‘He’ in worship services in order to not highlight that God is male, in the new version of a handbook on how to conduct services. The move has triggered a backlash, with critics saying the change undermines the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity and politicizes faith.

The issue became even more heated when a church in the Swedish city of Vasteras referred to Jesus as ‘hen’ in an advertisement for a Christmas worship service. The pronoun is used as an alternative to gender-specific words when a person’s gender is not known or not relevant. Some Twitter users rushed to ask whether it is now an official stance of the church. Susann Senter, the church’s dean, and Bishop of Vasteras Mikael Mogren were forced to come up with explanations.

“The word ‘hen’ is a way to give a new perspective,” Senter wrote in a statement on Friday. Despite accepting in the article that Jesus was a man, it stressed that gender is not the main aspect of his identity. She also said that people can continue to use “traditional” language, while others can embrace the new language.

While Bishop Mikael Mogren does not deny that Jesus was male, he applauds the fact that the advertisement has sparked debate. He noted, however, that some commenters insult trans people during the discussions and stressed that they are, like everyone else, “created by God.” 

Despite attempts to calm the public, the church’s statements triggered heated discussion among social media users. One person (Maria Svanerud) commented on the church’s Facebook post that the ‘hen’ reference is a mockery, while another (Christian Himmelstrand) was “upset” at “messing with the most elementary fundamentals of faith.”

 - I can't believe this.. What is going on with these people? Pure madness

Swedistan is only allowed to insult Christians,if they said that Quran have gender neutral reference Muslims would go crazy,stab some people and burn some cars.

The highest god in Sweden is political correctness.

Political correctness is just a mask for "serving the devil".

Better understood in ancient terms as baal worship.

3 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, 4 and they schemed to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him.

I am becoming sick of people. It will just get worse and worse. By the way, Hen is a female Chicken

The radical left, social justice warriors are bastardizing civilization for their own mentally unwell fanatical desires and the weak , and equally mentally unstable, sociopathic politicians and bureaucrats are accommodating these freaks.

to both of you, Jesus walked on this earth, and there are hystorical records of his existence.

Disgraceful. Swedish men are a disgrace to males everywhere.

The Swedish church has been hijacked by agenda missionaries. Bizarre as their and the other agenda warriors actions are, regime friendly media's focus on Russia's agenda for Sweden is what scares them rather than the proven current chaos caused by inner enemies. Psychopaths and their sheep herds, that's basically the root cause.

Jesus is the Son of God , hence the He.

Was it a Swedish church that took down a cross because it was offensive?

When that "Holy" person, the Bishop of Stockholm, has ordered crosses  removal from a Stockholm church "to avoid offending Muslim migrants", one idea struck me: it's the end.

have you worked out who the perpetrators are and their motive yet? i mean the people behind opening the migrant floodgates & engineering the influx, injecting political correctness into our societies at government, media and education levels, etc etc...

The God He will not leave this unnoticed, i feel very sorry for the country, he will destroy it like he did in times of Sodom & Gomora

The God He will not leave this unnoticed, i feel very sorry for the country, he will destroy it like he did in times of Sodom & Gomora

The Swedes have lost it. Completely.

For such a small country, it is making much news in the past month: gang rape epidemic, consensual contract between partners before sex, neutral gender Jesus. The Swedes have gone mad.

Seems they are paying a price. A very big price. Who masterminded this ?

this gender-neutral stuff needs to stop, why does a small group of people (very small) push their ideology onto the rest of society. if you dont like something fine go make your own group somewhere eles leave the magority of society alone. this political correctness movement needs to stop, it is the worst thing that has happened to free speech in a long time. these small groups of agitators are doing more harm then good.

The abomination of desolation, per Matthew 24 and Book of Daniel, taking hold of one part of the world. Advantage: Jesus' second coming is nearer. Disadvantage for the Swedish Church: <<I never knew you>> and a place in heoll. Hope: Prayer. A remnant in Sweden that represents the Truth.

This Swedish Church would serve the public tremendously better by calling out Politically Correct Id!i!ot!en!
