Bath Spa university bans research into transgendered people who regret The Surgery

A researcher has been refused permission to study cases of people who have surgery to reverse gender reassignment by a university that said it risked generating controversy on social media sites.

The proposal was rejected with an explanation noting that it was a potentially “politically incorrect” piece of research and could lead to material being posted online that “may be detrimental to the reputation of the institution”.

James Caspian, a psychotherapist, who wanted to conduct the research for a master’s degree in counselling and psychotherapy at Bath Spa University, accused it of failing to follow “the most basic tenets of academic and intellectual freedom of enquiry”.

Mr Caspian, 58, a counsellor who specialises in therapy for transgender people, embarked on the research after speaking to a surgeon who had carried out operations to reverse gender reassignment surgery, as people came to regret their decision.

Mr Caspian was at first given approval by Bath Spa for his research, which needed clearance from the university’s ethics sub-committee in order for him to conduct the interviews

He was, however, unable to find people willing to take part and asked to amend the proposal for his master’s so that it would include women who had transitioned to men and reverted to living as women, but without reversing their surgery.

Mr Caspian also asked if he could post a request on an online forum for people working in this field — the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) — as a means of recruiting participants.

He was told this would require a new submission to the university’s ethics sub-committee which, after discussion with the dean of the relevant department, rejected this request. On the sub-committee’s rejection form, it said: “Engaging in a potentially ‘politically incorrect’ piece of research carries a risk to the university.

I've rarely seen such a mangled, strangled, strained effort trying to cobble together Catholicism and the rainbow out of thin air. Some dodgy microgroup in the states says he should be a saint.
It's reached comedy levels now, yet it'll be lapped up. It's as if The Onion has become mainstream news.

I often wonder if these sorts of things are more trolling for reactions to further divide people. I mean, this thing just has all the divisive issues wrapped in one.

It's 100% trolling Catholics. It's both a busman's holiday and a maniacal obsession with them. It's the only time these hacks get a bit of fire in the belly when they can depict Catholicism capitulating before their social engineering theology.

He should be a saint because an airplane fell on him?

It's "progressive" not to call girls, girls - at a girl's school - as "gender is a social construct"? (UK)

Ridiculous.
