Johns Hopkins University, a once prestigious institution, has come under fire for using outrageous and frankly absurd language in its new LGBTQ glossary. In this glossary, a lesbian is defined as a “non-man” attracted to “non-men.” This definition not only erases the biological reality of women but is also deeply offensive to those who identify as lesbian.
Conservative commentators and gender ideology critics immediately called out the university for its irrational and nonsensical definition. It is unacceptable for one of the country’s most distinguished universities to engage in such disregard for basic biology and common sense.
Thankfully, after facing backlash, the university removed the glossary from its website and issued a statement claiming they are reviewing the definitions, origins, and contexts of the vocabulary. However, one must wonder how such a blatantly offensive definition made it onto the website in the first place.
This is just one example of how transgender activists are attempting to erase women entirely by defining female in reference to male and welcoming men into women’s private spaces. Such actions not only undermine the rights and dignity of women but also erase their existence altogether.
Johns Hopkins University must take responsibility for its erroneous and offensive language and take action to prevent such errors from occurring in the future. It is imperative for all institutions to ensure they are not promoting language that erases half of the world’s population and perpetuates harmful gender ideologies.
In conclusion, universities must serve as a place of intellectual honesty, diversity of thought, and inclusion. By promoting such offensive language and disregarding basic biology, institutions like Johns Hopkins are failing to serve this purpose. It is time for universities to prioritize facts, logic, and reason and stop promoting dangerous gender ideologies.
