The State University of New York (SUNY) Geneseo suspended a student from mandatory teaching programs due to a post on Instagram where he claims that there are only two genders.
Owen Stevens posted a video on his Instagram account saying that “A man is a man, a woman is a woman. A man is not a woman and a woman is not a man,” which was “discovered” by his colleagues and apparently reported to university authorities.
According to the Daily Wire in order for Stevens to return to classes he has to complete a “remediation plan” that includes deleting all of his posts expressing conservative ideas like those in the video in question, reducing his social media presence and attending school-sanctioned training.
But Steven said he will not participate in the university’s “re-education” plan.
SUNY’s dean said the student’s stance violates the institution’s inclusivity doctrines and added that all prospective teachers at the university will have to accept all aspects of homosexuality and gender ideology for entry.
According to email correspondence obtained by Daily Wire, the university also sent an email to all students and staff condemning Stevens for his publications.
“Yesterday, I was made aware of a current student’s Instagram posts pertaining to transgender people,” the university’s president wrote. “I want to take this opportunity to publicly restate my deep personal commitment to promoting social justice.”
While the institution’s authorities understand that they cannot legally take further action against Stevens due to the legal framework of the First Amendment, the incident itself has already caused major problems for the student.
“I’ve received threats and horrible incidents of students who all feel like they are making the world a better place by becoming the woke thought police,” Stevens said. “Overall, I want justice and the right thing to be done.”
The culture war in America seems to be hitting its peak with the Joe Biden administration and its radical progressive agenda.
Last week Congress passed the Equality Act, which far from being designed to achieve equality, is designed to destroy traditional values, forcing those who do not share the gender ideology to accept it and in cases like this one, to shut up and submit to a kind of brainwashing in order to fit in the modern accepted values.
