Cancel All Binaries

Colleges and universities are riddled with systemic queerphobia and transphobia. For example, colleges and universities that separate scientists into plant-centered and animal-centered departments perpetuate the binarized outlook that sustains queerphobia and transphobia. Clearly the existence of Euglena and other protists, which cannot be unambiguously classified as either plant or animal, nullifies the false and harmful cis-heteronormative white male binary distinction between plant and animal. Thus there is no natural justification for perpetuating this false and harmful binarization.

All  arbitrary binary classification systems used to define administrative units in colleges and universities are queerphobic and transphobic. They perpetuate queerphobia and transphobia. They cause harm and should be eliminated, dispensed of, disposed of, driven out, dismissed, terminated, rejected, rubbed out, eradicated, erased, and canceled immediately before they harm one more gender dysphoric youth.

College and university departments that falsely separate basic physics from applied physics also perpetuate queerphobia. Departments that teach coding based on binary codes or build chips that separate continuous signals into zeros and ones also perpetuate cis-heteronormative white male binary thinking that does harm to already marginalized members of our transgender and queer communities. These departments should also be canceled before one more gender dysphoric youth commits suicide.

Same with chemistry departments that falsely and harmfully binarize organic and general chemistry. These departments must be eradicated.

Microbiology departments are not immune. These departments are often based on the false and harmful dichotomy between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. This cis-heteronormative white male binary thinking does unfathomable harm to our queer and transgender communities. Cancel all microbiology departments!

We must make a long march through the entire university administrative system that is built on and perpetuates cis-heteronormative white male queerphobia and transphobia.
