    “The underlying argument behind academic freedom is that if we let ideas compete, the best ones will win out. But the university is supposed to strive toward truth, which is not determined by majority rule or individual preference or those who shout the loudest. We respect those who disagree with what we teach. Can they respect us?” What is crucial to understand here is that the campus Left is not wrong because it has a monopoly; it is wrong because its monopoly perpetuates falsehoods and nonsense.” "The LGBT ideology is implicitly totalitarian — implicitly — it is going to destroy freedom implicitly." The LGBT activists who resort to demonizing those who disagree as "bigots" or "homophobes," end up demonstrating "that when you fly in the face of reality, you are implicitly totalitarian, because if it‘s obviously not connected with reality, you have to force those who are arguing for reality onto the sidelines." Any ideology which denies obvious empirical facts has to quash dissent in order to maintain its political influence. "If the emperor has no clothes, you can‘t allow anyone to say he has no clothes," “If the hospital staff treats a woman as a man just to sooth the patient‘s fragile emotional state, and the patient dies or is injured because of a course of care that was avoided to maintain the delusion of gender, the hospital is liable for malpractice.” There are people who have psychological disorders in which they feel uncomfortable with their physical gender, but that doesn‘t mean that someone who is a man or who is a woman can suddenly become the other. Even if a transgender person undergoes the full surgical "treatment," doctors cannot alter the DNA in each cell, which will still be male or female. "That, to me, really reveals the deep denial of truth that‘s behind the gender identity movement." We live in a real, fact based world. Gender is not a choice it is a biological fact.
