(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) The University of Waterloo in Canada has posted an tenure-track job specifically reserved for people who identify as oppressed sexual identities, the Daily Caller reported.
The new hire is meant not primarily to perform well in the given field, but merely to help check diversity boxes.
According to the posting, the department wishes “to fill a Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Tier 2 Canada Research Chair and tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor” to “address the underrepresentation of individuals from equity deserving groups among our Canada Research Chairs.”
Further, in accordance with the Ontario, Canada, Human Rights code, they noted that being a part of the oppressed classes they wish to hire is a prerequisite for job consideration.
The university is able to implement “special programs” which discriminate in favor of “marginalized groups … who experience hardship, economic disadvantage, inequality or discrimination.”
“Because this is a special opportunity for a specific member of the four designated groups, applicant self-identification information will be used for the purposes of screening and consideration,” the advertisement said.
To avoid the confusion that might ensue, the United States Department of Health has aided us in understanding what it means to be a “two-spirit.”
“The term ‘Two-Spirit’ does not simply mean someone who is a Native American/Alaska Native and gay,” the bureaucracy wrote in its sexuality guide.
Rather, these people are Native Americans who believe that they take on identities of multiple sexes and sexual preference depending on various, undenoted circumstances.
“Traditionally, Native American two-spirit people were male, female, and sometimes intersexed individuals who combined activities of both men and women with traits unique to their status as two-spirit people.”
