Family physician, psychologist, and renowned author Dr. Leonard Sax said taking the stance that sex, either male or female, makes a difference in a classroom “will now get you canceled at many leading universities.”
“The claim that there is an emerging science of sex differences, that male and female matter in ways that are relevant to the classroom is now ‘offensive’,” Dr. Leonard Sax told Dan Proft on the Counter Culture Podcast. “So you’re not really even allowed to talk about it.”
“If you were to say, ‘what can we do to remedy the underrepresentation of boys and men among high achievers in education?’ said Sax. “That question is unspeakable and out of bounds at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, at Columbia Barnard Teachers College, at UT Austin, at University of Wisconsin Madison, at Cal Berkeley.”
“You’re not allowed to talk about such things.”
