University equality lectures bans straight, white men

A series of lectures on equality have banned cis, straight, white able-bodied males from attending.

The four lectures, which are taking place at the University of Greenwich, have banned the men from attending debate session, with the decision made by a union of lecturers.

They said they had reached their decision because they want members who attend the conference to be able to demonstrate their “protected characteristics” and to ensure a safe space was preserved.

The lectures will cover four different topics: ethnic, disabled, LGBT and female fights for equality. Activists arranging the lectures have said that people who do not fall into the category will be unable to attend even if they have been elected by their union branch.

At the University and College Union congress meeting in Liverpool last week a motion to allow anybody to attend the lectures was proposed, but dismissed. This motion was the only one not to pass at the conference.

Lecturers involved in the series have defended the move which faced backlash for its decision to not be all inclusive.

Ciara Doyle, a lecturer at The University of Greenwich, said she would not attend the conference if all equality reps gained admittance.

Concerns that the sessions would be dominated with people with no personal experience on matters relating to equality were raised by Dr Doyle. She said: “We see in the union movement that some voices are far louder than others.”

Emma Jane-Phillips, a member for UCU equality, told Time Higher Education: “Equality reps are passionate about equality regardless of their own situation. To infer that someone does not understand someone’s situation just because you don’t tick a box is insulting.”

She added: “It is ridiculous that people who regard equality as their life can’t attend our equality conference.”

The first conference on LGBT equality begins on the 23rd of June.

At least it's not Breitbart. On topic, I as always find it disturbing to ban groups, and even greatly sadder that freedom of associating has been...scaled back. We can't have both guys.

Not sure what it is about the femnazi extremists? they absolutely hate white hertosexual men.
They seem to honestly think that all white men are white privileged, sexist, misogynistic, racist, rapists, etc
And yet despite all the rape and sexual harrassment from Muslim men towards white European women, completely ingnor that fact and act like it's racist to say it even though its the truth and as if its only bad if white men do it?

Would not surprise me.
Funny thing is, Islam taking over may be the only way to prevent this from happening.
