Course disputes idea that heterosexual sex is 'natural'

  • Eugene Lang College is offering a "Queer Ecologies" course this fall devoted to countering “heterosexist” explanations of animals and nature.

  • According to the instructor, common scientific practices like using the terms "male" and "female" when describing reproduction among plants and animals contributes to the perception that "queerness" is "unnatural."

And do you know what else is unnatural? – post normal science (PNS).

Once there was modern science, which was hard work; now we have postmodern science, where the quest for real, absolute truth is outdated, and "science" is a wax nose that can be twisted in any direction to underpin the latest lying narrative in the pursuit of power. Except they didn't call it ‘postmodern' science because then we might smell a rat. They called it PNS (post-normal science) and hoped we wouldn't notice…

Science has succumbed to the same virus that beset literature, art, economics, and the rest of the social sciences: postmodernism. Postmodernism is a progressive virus that negates reason, objectivity, and truth -- replacing them with relativism, subjectivism, and pragmatism. Having colonized every other branch of academics decades ago, postmodernism has now come for science. DFD

"Queer Ecologies" could well be a foundation course in PNS:

According to the course description, students will be taught to “reimagine evolutionary processes, ecological interactions, and environmental politics in light of queer theory…”

Davis explained that queer ecologies is an “interdisciplinary field that examines the relationship between sexuality and nature, thinking beyond the boundaries of assuming that heterosexuality is the norm or standard.”

The field “inquires into the sexual lives of animals, plants, and bacteria—lives that are often much more strange, adaptable, and queer than anything humans do,” she elaborated. “It also seeks to critique how heterosexuality is presumed as natural.”

I  find it a bit odd that “Queer Ecology” is offered in the Media and Culture department rather than the Science department but I put that down to the fact that they are science deniers.

Where are the clowns? Don’t bother... they’re here.

At some point can we ourselves stop cackling like witches at these poor souls? We think we can isolate ourselves from the satanic stink? We must think again. God insists.

It’s a tangible illustration of the folly of Eden. This is their private “known good and evil.” God has rolled the bible up to a megaphone for us.

“queerness” is “unnatural.”

That’s why it’s queer. It’s unnatural.

Um, because it is?

Yes. Behind all of this is the prideful boast that Man is god.

Ecology is the study of the relationship between an organism and its environment. Queer Ecologies? That must be the study of the relationship between a human queer (the organism) and Earth (its environment).

LOL, all the male animals, even man, strives to be dominant with in a group because the strongest, smartest, most cunning gets the pick.. That is some imagination you got there. I am so happy my college career ended 30 some years ago. If B*ll Sh*t were a dynamo we could shutter several nuclear reactors on this one alone.

Private school?

Private schools usually have financial problems. Unless they’re like the Ivy League schools with big multibillion dollar endowments. If it is indeed private that bit of scholarship ought to help keep enrollment up and thus help the school’s bottom line.

I know their minds are twisted, but even a small child knows it takes a male and female to make a person. It’s not biologically possible for anything else to make that work, in a normal fashion.
