A female academic for Britain is calling on the state to classify “nerd” and “geek” as hate speech punishable by law, according to a report in The Telegraph.
Psychology lecturer and psychotherapist Dr. Sonja Falck is leading this push after studying the impacts of bullying on children with high IQs. She believes that the terms are “divisive and humiliating” and discrimination against the intelligent is the “last taboo” that must be tackled by government action. She is calling for Britain to classify “nerd” and “geek” alongside homophobic, religious, and racial slurs as illegal free speech.
During her eight years of research on high IQ individuals, she found that these terms really hurt her subjects’ feelings and made them feel like they didn’t belong.
“That was a really big one,” Falck said. “That’s where being taunted with names like ‘nerd’ or ‘egghead’ or ‘brainiac’ comes in because the person is being set apart as being different to others and feeling like they’re a misfit and they don’t belong.”
She compares the negative treatment of high-IQ individuals with how bigots treat black people. She believes the necessary cultural shift can be forced by government intervention.
“The N-word was common parlance in the UK until at least the 1960s. Other insulting slurs about age, disability, religion and gender identity remained in widespread use until relatively recently,” she said.
“Society at the time turned a blind eye to their impact by passing them off as harmless banter. It is only with the benefit of hindsight and academic research that we realise how wrong we were,” she added.
Falck wants other slurs toward intelligent people to be classified as hate crimes as well. She is basically calling for an open-ended ban on any criticism of the elite.
“The same can be said about anti-IQ words like ‘nerd’, ‘brainbox’, ‘geek’, ‘egg-head’, ‘smart-arse’, ‘dweeb’ and ‘smarty-pants’,” Falck said.
“Slurs such as these will continue to be used unabated at the expense of the brightest members of society unless and until legislative action is taken,” she added.
Falck herself is a member of Mensa, a group of individuals with high IQs, so she is essentially calling for the state to ban criticism of herself.
“The government says it is committed to creating an outward-looking, inclusive society yet continues to tolerate divisive, discriminatory language,” she said. “In the short space of time since racial, homophobic and religious hate speech was banned, it is now seen by most as morally abhorrent.”
“It would be progress for British society to come to feel the same way about hate-filled, prejudicial slurs against our high-IQ community,” she added.
Her partners at Mensa are seemingly behind her proposal to further erode freedom of speech in order to protect their precious feelings.
“Very high-IQ individuals often experience isolation or bullying from people around them because they are perceived as being different from the majority,” said John Stevenage, CEO of Mensa.
“Mensa as an organisation gives people with very high IQ a community which is non-judgemental and inclusive of difference,” he added. “Put simply, everybody is different, so no-one is.”
Perhaps if these eggheads were bullied more growing up, they wouldn’t feel so emboldened and empowered to infringe upon core freedoms.
Canadian Health ‘Experts’ Suggest Up to Two Weeks of Mental Torture and Solitary Confinement for Kids Diagnosed with COVID-19
Psychotic levels of tyranny.
Canadian medical “experts” with Peel Health are aggressively backtracking after suggesting for parents to inflict solitary confinement upon children for up to two weeks if they are diagnosed with COVID-19.
The guidelines which have sparked widespread anger have since been removed from the Peel Health page, and state health officials are being forced to backtrack their latest COVID-19 overreach to violate the rights of children.
The initial flier that was given to children in schools can be seen here:
There are some actual medical experts with ethics, decency and common sense who are speaking out against these ghastly policies to inflict mental torture upon children.
“This does not seem practically possible and is highly likely to cause harm to children who would already be experiencing considerable distress with having to remain at home,” Dr. Tess Clifford, who works as director for the Psychology Clinic at Queen’s University, said to the Toronto Sun.
“I don’t understand how any healthcare professional has moved so far away from the fundamentals of public health and of doing no harm that they would think that basically incarcerating a child in a room for 14 days is in any way justified,” said Dr. Martha Fulford, who works as an infectious diseases physician with Hamilton Health Sciences.
“This is shocking, especially when you consider this is being proposed for children who are not in any way sick,” she added.
Brampton, Ont. Mayor Patrick Brown wrote in a tweet on Sunday that the guidelines would be revised after the outcry of anger.
“Public Health must ensure the best interests of children & families are at the centre of recommendations,” Brown wrote. “They must be based on science with evidence for all to see. I am relieved to hear from Dr [Lawrence] Loh that this mistake is being fixed & this flyer is being removed from circulation.”

While Brown is downplaying the guidelines as a mere mistake, parents who have been deceived about the COVID-19 scamdemic for over a year now are no longer buying the spin. They now understand that mealy-mouthed bureaucratic weasels are deliberately punishing the people for the purposes of leftist social control.
Shouldn’t have gone out to begin with! Only being fixed due to the outrage!

This is already happening. They didn't admit a mistake , they just got caught. pic.twitter.com/GTKOzmLp7t

This is absolutely egregious incompetence.
Isolating children? For 2 weeks?
Why do we always tolerate this utter idiocy from government?
Everyone in that decision path needs to be fired.

Mayor Brown, it's appalling that the media had to call them out for 3 consecutive days on this prior to a change being made. This should not have happened and I hope you're looking into it. If media hadn't raised it – it would have stayed in. Unacceptable

This entire Covid situation needs to be "fixed"…the sooner the better. Eventually one law or another will catch up with all the perpetrators and their supporters.

The stakes are too high for mistakes. Where else have they made mistakes? You know how a doctor covers their mistakes? 6ft of dirt.

Even after a year of nonstop fear porn from the mass media and every China-backed corporation going along with the lies, the masses still desire to be free and are rejecting COVID-19 tyranny. This is not good news for the globalists whose cruel policies are becoming violently unpopular among the common people.
