Re: College: Gender Studies

When a particular set of assumptions, a particular ideology or a particular worldview becomes entrenched in academic, legal and political institutions, when it defines the assumptions and beliefs of a population (and particularly those who adhere to certain political and philosophical categories where this ideology is most influential), then exposure to other perspectives will be met with mockery, belittlement, aggression, or some combination of these. It's important for people - for example, someone thinking of entering the miasma of academic gender studies - to be made aware of the range of perspectives prior to being "educated" at length by those who push a singular and indefensible ideological line under the pretence of scholarship.
We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, and the best of us is washed away.
