Kathleen Belew describes herself in her Twitter bio as a “historian of the present, the white power movement, mass violence, & apocalypse.” And it looks like the apocalypse is here because the Wyoming Senate has reportedly voted to eliminate the University of Wyoming’s gender studies program. And it goes without saying you can’t study U.S. history without studying gender.
Disastrous. It goes without saying that you cannot study the history of the United States without studying gender. https://t.co/R7rToYqTPZ

The study of history easily contains content on both men and women.

You might be surprised to note that your hyperbolic response diminishes your point.

Glorious. Keep writing about white supremacy. That’s a much more lucrative subject for you 🤡

Gender studies is pseudoscience.

They also dont have astrology or phrenology departments as far as I know

One can study history without a Gender Studies program, which have proven unable to teach anyone anything except grievance and resentment.
These degrees and attitudes are millstones around the necks of students and graduates, and people find themselves nearly unemployable.

This is great news. Maybe colleges can start teaching real subjects like math and science.

Last time I was in a history class, I never had any problems figuring out the gender of whoever they were speaking of. It seems to be just this generation who can't figure it out.

I don’t see anything that says you can’t teach history and all that that entails. It looks likes they are just eliminating courses specifically on the subject of gender.

Good. More of this.

Serious question, what is your career if you’ve completed a gender studies program?

As a woman who studied history, trust me you can learn everything you need to know about America without studying gender.

I would venture that all those people with “gender studies” degrees are the same ones crying to have their student loans erased

"Gender Studies" is pure political indoctrination masquerading as an academic field.
— Reptilian Overlord (@RepOverlord) March 1, 2022
Spectacular. It goes without saying that you cannot seriously consider the study of gender as anything other than a farce and a complete waste of time.
WELL DONE WYOMING!! 👏👏👏👏

A wonderful idea! Gender studies = fantasy and grievance mongering.

Good riddance. Gender studies departments are noxious cesspools of divisive, illiberal Marxist bilge.
— Greg (@phuqker) February 28, 2022
Gender studies is a joke. They are superfluous programs/departments that are rife with remedial academic practices.

Will the current gender studies majors at least get to finish out their degrees so they can do whatever it is gender studies majors do?
