If it’s not “inclusive” then it’s incorrect – even if it’s a scientific fact. 

University of Cincinnati student Olivia Krolczyk claimed her professor gave her a zero on a college project for using the term “biological women.” Krolczyk took to social media to expose this example of liberal bias in a now-viral video collecting nearly three million views

As part of her Women’s Gender Studies in Pop Culture class, Krolczyk was assigned to pick a topic related to feminism. She chose to “research the changes female athletes have experienced throughout history and the rights and opportunities they have been awarded and fought for in athletics,” according to the New York Post

After using examples, like the first woman to compete in the Olympics to the discussion surrounding Title IX, Krolczyk concluded by stating how “these rights and opportunities are being threatened by allowing men to compete in women’s sports.”

“Olivia, this is a solid proposal. However, the terms ‘biological women’ are exclusionary and are not allowed in this course as they further reinforce heteronormativity,” the professor replied in a screenshot obtained by the New York Post. “Please reassess your topic and edit it to focus on women’s rights (not just “females”) and I’ll re-grade. 

Krolczyk contacted her university’s Gender Equity office and was told a different professor would evaluate the project. Two weeks later, her grade of zero remains. She is now speaking out after feeling “the issue is not being taken seriously.” 

“Standing up for free speech in education is more important. If we as a student body take action instead of conforming to the professor’s ideology, we can hopefully start changing our universities back to a place where stating simple biology isn’t punished and conflicting opinions are encouraged,” she told The Post. 

Krolczyk is one of many students who experience unfair treatment in academia for adhering to science and objectivity instead of “wokeness” and “inclusivity”. The quality of higher education continues to deteriorate as schools discourage the exchange of differing ideas while pushing a leftist agenda.
