UK University Bars Research Into Transgender Transitioning Regrets and Second Thoughts, Because The Research Could Be Used to Counter the Preferred Narrative

Hashtag "Science."

A researcher has been refused permission to study cases of people who have surgery to reverse gender reassignment by a university that said it risked generating controversy on social media sites.

The proposal was rejected with an explanation noting that it was a potentially "politically incorrect" piece of research and could lead to material being posted online that "may be detrimental to the reputation of the institution".

James Caspian, a psychotherapist, who wanted to conduct the research for a master’s degree in counselling and psychotherapy at Bath Spa University, accused it of failing to follow "the most basic tenets of academic and intellectual freedom of enquiry".

Meet the new Inquisition, same as the old Inquisition.

BTW, Mizzou's enrollment has fallen to a level not seen since nearly a decade ago.
