Post-modern science doesn't make any sense

Get out your post-modern rulebooks, because we've got a fresh edition for you. This time, it's the University of Minnesota. The policy is so steeped in post-modern terminology that it practically prances off the page with a #RESIST hat on its head.

"Equity and Access: Gender Identity, Gender Expression, Names and Pronouns," which states that members of the academic institution "are expected to use the names, gender identities, and pronouns specified to them by University members."

Translation: College students can freely decide their gender, and any faculty who fail to respect students' highly malleable identity can face punishment.

All right, bear with me, because it's about to get even more nauseatingly pretentious, but it's important to decipher what they're actually saying so that we can respond tactfully. The policy reads:

Individuals may access gender-specific facilities that correspond with their gender identities and may participate in University activities and programs consistent with their gender identities including, but not limited to, housing, restrooms, locker rooms, recreation services and activities, and camp programs. Individuals will not be required to use gender-specific facilities that are inconsistent with their gender identities or to use gender-inclusive options because their sex assigned at birth or sex listed on legal documents differs from their gender identity or gender expression.

In short, anything goes, as long as each student's highly subjective gender reality is unwaveringly respected.

In short, anything goes, as long as each student's highly subjective gender reality is unwaveringly respected. I'd call it a satire if it weren't so over-serious.

In other news, the same group of students will likely host a parade in which they all don vulva-shaped beanies and march around a statue and curse President Trump for not letting them morph into any gender, race, or age they like, because…Science!

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

University of Minnesota considers punishing staff and students who use incorrect 'gender pronouns'

In a postmodernist society, nothing makes sense. That's why we see headlines like this every day. In the realm of utter insanity, the latest headline comes from the University of Minnesota regarding a proposed policy regarding speech.


As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
