UC Riverside prof calls heterosexual relationships ‘tragic,’ bad for women
According to a California professor, the very bond that prolongs the human race is “tragic,” “a tragedy,” and bad for women.
University of Riverside professor Jane Ward spoke to Insider about her research for a new book, “The Tragedy of Heterosexuality.”
“It really looks like straight men and women don’t like each other very much, that women spend so much time complaining about men, and we still have so much evidence of misogyny,” Ward said according to Insider. “From an LGBT perspective, [being straight] looks actually very tragic.”
Ward discusses the pandemic and the uptick in divorce and studies showing less satisfaction in sexual relationships as proof that straight relationships are bad.
“I think in some ways the pandemic is revealing the tragedy of heterosexuality to people who might not have otherwise paid attention to it,” Ward said.
Insider reports that she has studied these topics for years and analyzes the ways that straight relationships hold both women and men back.
She claims to feel sorry for men who are stuck in a toxic masculinity culture that teaches a need for women and pressures men to treat their partners poorly.
One homosexual interviewee for the professor’s book discussed feeling sorry for straight women.
“I really sympathize with these women, but at the same time it makes me feel alienated from them,” the interviewee told Ward. “Our lives become so different when theirs revolves around attachment to a cruel, insensitive, self-centered, or simply boring man.”
Interestingly, science suggests that 100% of babies result from a man and woman— meaning our entire existence as a species relies on this natural, but apparently “tragic,” relationship.

BREAKING: Federal Indictment of Trump in Classified Documents Probe has been Unsealed
Former President and current Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, has been indicted and is facing 37 counts in connection with his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The 49-page document was unsealed Friday.
The indictment contains charges of the following: Willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, withholding a document or record, corruptly concealing a document or record, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheme to conceal, and making false statements and representations.
Trump announced the indictment Thursday night on Truth Social, his social media platform:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is ‘secured’ by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
Trump declared himself an “INNOCENT MAN” and the subject of the “Greatest Witch Hunt of all time.” The Biden administration, he claimed, is ‘TOTALLY CORRUPT.”
The former president has argued that all the documents in question were declassified when he left the White House. “You’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview last year.
Trump was on to Biden's deep corruption re Ukraine and wanted it investigated, so they impeached him.
Now that many of Biden's crimes are being exposed, naturally they're going to indict Trump again.
