Skip to comments.Professor says heterosexuality ‘tragic’
Posted on 05/08/2021 5:10:56 AM PDT by MtnClimber
Jane Ward, Sexuality Studies Professor at the University of California-Riverside, was recently featured in an Insider article in which she stated, "It really looks like straight men and women don't like each other very much, that women spend so much time complaining about men, and we still have so much evidence of misogyny. From an LGBT perspective, [being straight] looks actually very tragic."
The article, titled “Why heterosexual relationships are so bad for us, according to a sex researcher,” cites an increase in relationship problems among straight couples since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown -- but says nothing of homosexual couples. Being straight is “very tragic,” and “so bad for us?” That doesn’t seem very welcoming, reassuring and inclusive. In fact, it seems judgmental and intolerant. Condescending. A macroaggression.
Ward also said, "I think in some ways the pandemic is revealing the tragedy of heterosexuality to people who might not have otherwise paid attention to it.” Well, it’s hard to keep track of all the tragedies happening lately. I wonder where The Tragedy of Heterosexuality ranks in comparison to other tragedies such as The Worldwide Pandemic, massive unemployment, the skyrocketing crime and suicide rates, the opioid crisis, terrorism, societal loss of purpose and confidence, etc., etc.?
She told Campus Reform via email that, “Research on heterosexual marital satisfaction over the life course shows that straight couples are struggling to balance work and family obligations, and this leads to frustration and resentment for many straight women, in particular.” Well, gay people and couples do earn more on average than their straight counterparts, and have fewer children to suck up their income, so perhaps they are fairing better in that respect.

WUT? Sexuality Studies Professor? Why is there such a thing?
Please...please...please don’t post any photos of “Jane Ward”.I just has a nice breakfast and I don’t want to bring it up!
From the article.... “have fewer children to suck up their income...” Wow! I never thought of my three blessings as parasitic income sucking things. I am so un-woke, I guess. SMH
All human relationships fall short of perfection. Duh!
She got some attention for observing this in a particularly goofy way, so I guess she wins.
How long would a Harvard Professor last if they said the same thing about HOMOSEXUALITY?
This is what our education dollars are funding. This is why we 'need' more financial aid - so we can have people be 'taught' this nonsense to earn degrees.
That quote came from the author, Mr. Utter, who also doesn’t know the word “faring.” (He’s supposed to be conservative, I guess. Egad.)
Jane Ward exists because of some degree of heterosexuality on the part of her parents. DUH!
“WUT? Sexuality Studies Professor? Why is there such a thing?”
As a scam to provide an academic cloak and funding for ones perversions as well as to find intersectional support in that community on the road to mainstreaming the perversion/s.
“Jane you ignorant...”
“Tragic” might be used to describe the trans phenomenon, which has resulted in a high suicide rate. But don’t say so in public!
More tragic than heterosexuality is paying $15-40,000 a year for a degree in women’s studies.
Joe Biden wants to wipe clean your college debt, so, yeah...
She is partly right. Heterosexuality enabled her to be born.
This gets back to higher education and the lack of any education in it.
Today’s colleges (not all but most) offer degrees in someone’s skewed opinion.
You come out of these institutions brainwashed from their twisted indoctrination with no ability to think for yourself and void of all rational thought.
I’m old enough to remember when we actually respected university faculty.
Being a STEM type, I still respect those folks, but the rest?
(Yes, I know there are many decent ones out there, but they had better stand up and show some courage. A university’s academic respectability is inversely proportional to the number of leftists on campus. Right now this makes the coefficient of respectability sadly near zero.)
And she would be called a bigot and then fired if she’d changed a few words:
“It really looks like gays don’t like each other very much, that gay men spend so much time complaining about gay men, and we have so much evidence of gay promiscuity. From a straight perspective, [being gay] looks actually very tragic.”
In a way, she is right... Heterosexuality - in other words, what used to be called “normal life” - is hard! Raising kids is hard and it costs money, but that’s life!
I wonder if she really thinks a life of shopping with your life partner at fancy boutiques, or going on gay cruises with all that extra money you have, whether that is truly a better way to live?
It seems pretty empty to me. And more to the point, it seems like an escape from real life.
And yes she is a mentally ill gay feminist.
Further, even though men and women do have to learn to work together despite very real mental/emotional differences in approaches to the problems of life, homosexuality is far more often destructive, violent and without any fulfilling future.
