Students' union zealots demand philosophy society's poll on whether there are only two genders is taken down over fears it will offend trans people

'Students' union zealots have ordered an online poll about gender be taken down over fears it is offensive to trans people.

Officials said the survey by students at Warwick University was 'highly inappropriate' because gender issues were 'not up for debate'.

The poll was set up by the university's Politics, Philosophy and Law (PPL) society on its official Facebook page.

It asked whether students thought there were just two genders, or whether there was a 'spectrum'.

The majority of those who responded said they thought gender was a binary choice between male and female. The PPL society said it had tried to make sure the question was phrased sensitively and that 'no offence was intended'.

It comes amid numerous incidents in which feminist activists and academics have faced backlashes for questioning the transgender lobby.

A spokesman for the society said: 'We are surprised. Universities should be places for learning and discussion of all topics.

'Free speech is a key part of the learning environment at any university and our student union's stance would indicate an objection to that free speech. It has left us, among many others, disappointed.'

The poll, posted online before Christmas, asked: 'Is gender binary, or is it a spectrum?'

It added: 'Our aim is to create and provide a platform for academic and political discussions, no offence is intended. Derogatory comments will be deleted.''

Lol good. They're telling college philosophers they can't debate something. Sure, that makes sense  ::) Maybe it'll make them reconsider some things about "student unions" and philosophy in general.  ;D

The war on the mind rages on.

Both the Left and the Right depend upon the other sides idiocy to recruit more members.
