I think they need to hire a 'sensitivity reader' (e.g. A Censor...). This gaming review explains what they do...

Quote
This is the first RPG product I have come across that lists a sensitivity reader (granted, I live under a rock). I surmise it is a very sensible idea to hire one if you randomly find yourself writing sentences like “Actually, slavery is pretty cool”, or “The lesbians at the tavern have damn fine tits.” Your sensitivity reader will just find these passages and recommend that you remove them, all at a modest price. It is a very useful invention that I see getting widely adopted.

Not engineering, but science, and again at the University of Technology in Sydney:
Dean of science at UTS charged. She doubled down trying to earn those oppression olympics victim points:

Sounds a lot like many of the 'racist' incidents in the US - there simply aren't enough of them to suit the 'oppressed' groups, so they have to supplement those few that actually occur with more of their own.  I keep seeing these incidents, then it later turns out that the 'victim' themself is the one who spray painted the bad words on their dorm room door, or car, or the church wall, or, as in the case Dave mentions above, sent themselves threatening letters.   Crazy world we live in - gotta keep that oppression in the news!! 

It would be nice if we started seeing real consequences more often for those making such false accusations that waste money and resources in their investigation, and potentially ruin the lives of people falsely accused.  I'm happy to see that this prof has actually been arrested and charged, and hope something comes of it.  Let's put the False Oppression Olympics medalist's podium inside a jail cell, where it belongs.

What an moron! her lawyer seams to be walking freak show to. She is the analogy of the Mr Smolett case in the US!
Not so entertaining is  that climate change hoax is part of this liberal globalist gender bender, trans humanism, eugenics, gold/stock market , soyboy on and on fraud, its all parts of the whole agenda as it has been scientifically proven. I applaud the AU police not letting this crap go on.

Maybe she's just practicing her discipline. The article says she's a toxicologist.  :)

1 month ago Zero hedge reported she did it (first time?) because quote  :popcorn::

sent threatening letters to herself between May and September as a protest against abolition of the degree in traditional Chinese medicine, university officials believe.

I recall that parts of Chinese medicine  contains grind'ed rhino horns, sharkfins and other exotic religious bodily parts.

Why do people do these things?

The truly horrifying thing is that these people do not believe they are doing anything wrong, when they do this.  They truly believe that the world is such that what they do themselves, could very well happen; that they're not really faking anything, just making sure that something that almost always happens actually happens this time too.

This is not politics, by the way, even though this is often thought to coincide with "the left".  It is actually a combination of several things: "the bubble" -- being misinformed by limited information shared in-group in social media, believing that scary things are true because people believe in them; personality traits -- especially the anomalous out-group preference; and human eusocialization, turning "inwards" from manipulation of the environment to social interaction.

Because in the modern world there is huge social currency in being a "victim".

It's simple, she was already up on charges when she (allegedly) sent another 9 letters. The court rightly determined she was likely to reoffend while on bail. So standard practice to deny bail.
She was also suspended on full pay from the university for the first charges, I wonder what they'll do now.

The "victimization" mentality is allover the place in all kind of situations and professions i have observed and its frekking annoying because it destroys the real debate ,real issues , the victimization agenda is also to silence people with other opinions, its basically "social engineering" on individe and group level.

Full pay *and* not having to work??? That’s almost inhuman. Definitely being victimised there.

I'm glad that someone is at least taking it seriously. Sending oneself fake harassing letters is right up there with falsely accusing someone of rape. It's less harmful to the person being accused but it creates a serious hurdle to overcome when a legitimate case comes along, it's the classic "boy who cried wolf" situation. Every fraudulent case seriously dilutes any actual incidents that may have happened.

I'd say a case of 'too little too late', if you read what the person interviewed about it said:

Quote
“We live in a world that privileges the research of white men – as historically it is them who have done the research – and we need other voices to understand the power structures of our current society. I think that studying gender fosters an understanding of others rather than a fear.”

Actually it does not, from what I've seen and read, most of 'Identity Studies' seems to be rewarmed 19th century notions of Inherent Racial/Sexual characteristics mixed with a dash of Collective Racial/Sexual Guilt, seasoned with 'If it feels right, it is right'...

This article is over a year old.

In Hungary university is free, funded by the taxpayer. The gender studies wasn't banned as such, but the government refused to fund the programme any longer. It's still possible for a private university to run this course. At least that's how I understood the situation when I heard about it.

I don't know what's up but on Twitter I first encountered @welovegv , We love GMOs and Vaccines performing the "rudely demanding use of certain pronouns" routine and then it was Dave legitimizing Orban and dismissing gender studies.

I would prefer people to talk about stuff they actually know about. Severely disappointing.
