This professor claims that animals engage in lots of gay sex. Or something.

College Course Disputes Idea That Hetersosexual Sex Is "Natural"
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-07-28/college-course-disputes-idea-hetersosexual-sex-natural


...Taught by Heather Davis, “Queer Ecologies” is a four-credit course offered by the school’s Culture and Media department for students who wish to “disrupt prevailing heterosexist discursive and institutional articulations of sexuality and nature.”

According to the professor, these "heterosexist" explanations of sexuality and nature often involve referring to male/female animals.

According to the course description, students will be taught to “reimagine evolutionary processes, ecological interactions, and environmental politics in light of queer theory” by drawing from research in fields such as feminist science studies and environmental justice.

Students will also “draw important connections between the material and cultural dimensions of environmental issues, and examine the ways in which sex and nature are understood in light of multiple trajectories of power and matter,” the description adds.

During an interview with Campus Reform, 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.”

While it is not immediately apparent why the school’s Culture and Media department is offering the class, Davis explained that the course takes aim at how institutions like media outlets and schools often perpetuate myths about sex, gender, and the environment.

I think the design of male and female bodies might dispute that theory.

But that is now decided at the state level :biggrin-new:

I think that sex between a man and a woman, not any other sex, is how humans procreate and proves that this course is taught by a brain dead wacko that shouldn't be teaching anyone.

But, so far, the state can't do a damned thing about X and Y chromosomes. :biggrin-new:

My late grandma's 65 lb. male cocker spaniel used to try to hump our 25 lb. male poodle. Our dog was pretty hetero, though, fathered litters up and down the block.

We used to go to this ranch in Canada in the summer and ride horses. The owner used to ride this huge Palamino horse that he would say it was a good thing he was a good riding horse, because he was useless as a stud. He was only interested in other male horses. Mr. D eventually bred a full-blooded Arabian, who had no such issues and whose bloodline continues to this day.

"Queer Ecologies”? That was not a class offered at my University. Had precious few electives due to my degree, and only took one class that was actually kinda fun.

"Media, Self & Society". In the Sociology curriculum, basically we watched a lot of TV clips and analyzed them. An easy A or B if one applied themselves at all with a fun professor.

Rather amazing and disgusting how society has drifted downward in just a generation.

Gosh. Glad I familiarized myself with The Kama Sutra before future book-burners like the professor get-around to burning it.


Kama: the four principles of Life. Desire, prosperity, being a good citizen, freedom.

Sutra: the thread that links them.

Funny there's no word in ancient Sanskrit for 'same-sex anything'.

I understand all the academic bingo lingo in that course description, if not all up-to-the-minute nuance intended in it, but it makes me barf. The attempt to shroud ordinary meanings in complex specialist jargon is a sure sign there isn't anything worth paying for inside that poke.

Oh, that.

You guys are the center of attraction as we hopefully aren't struggling to keep you aware of it.

The vibrating-bed was an example of somebody struggling.

If this theory is true then how does the professor explain the existence of the second generation of any species with two genders?

She was ribbing me about The Kama Sutra Fabulous, published a few years ago with illustrations and some commentary by women this time. Which added much-needed freshness to the dry 'mansplaining' tome from 300(?)BC. Caused quite a stir on Reddit.

That's ok. It's a sort of obscure reference if you're over 30.
