Universities UK (UUK) has issued guidance on external speakers saying that the segregation of the sexes at universities is not discriminatory as long as “both men and women are being treated equally, as they are both being segregated in the same way.

”UUK add that universities should bear in mind that “concerns to accommodate the wishes or beliefs of those opposed to segregation should not result in a religious group being prevented from having a debate in accordance with its belief system” and that if “imposing an unsegregated seating area in addition to the segregated areas contravenes the genuinely-held religious beliefs of the group hosting the event, or those of the speaker, the institution should be mindful to ensure that the freedom of speech of the religious group or speaker is not curtailed unlawfully.

”We, the undersigned, condemn the endorsement of gender apartheid by Universities UK. Any form of segregation, whether by race, sex or otherwise is discriminatory. Separate is never equal and segregation is never applied to those who are considered equal. By justifying segregation, Universities UK sides with Islamist values at the expense of the many Muslims and others who oppose sex apartheid and demand equality between women and men.The guidance must be immediately rescinded and sex segregation at universities must come to an end.

    What is this shit? It’s UUK acknowledging that some Muslims are engaged in cultural warfare. What’s interesting about this shit? Whether the numbers of such Muslims, both absolutely and relatively, are growing.

    What’s embarrassing for socialists? To describe an appropriate response from the security authorities.

    Nick Cohen, in today’s Observer, on a very closely-related matter:

    Enlightenment values are under sustained attack from religious bigots – and much of the so-called “left” is siding with..the bigots!

    oh holy shit! it’s the return of jim crow, or in this case maybe jane crow. “separate but equal”? really? do you have any idea of the precedence this is setting? once segregationist practices such as this are introduced, especially in a public institution, they will only spread. it’s now to your undying shame that even us wretched pathetic americans are now more socially advanced than you guys. i guess we really are living through an incredibly regressive period of history. and something tells me we haven’t hit rock bottom yet.
