The Nordic Council of Ministers (a regional inter-governmental co-operation consisting of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland) decided to close down the NIKK Nordic Gender Institute. The NIKK had been the flagship of “Gender Theory”, providing the “scientific” basis for social and educational policies that, from the 1970s onward, had transformed the Nordic countries to become the most “gender sensitive” societies in the world. The group has essentially been responsible for promoting Feminism and the Social Justice movement in Nordic countries.
The National Coalition for men reports that the decision to defund the group, was made after the Norwegian State Television had broadcasted a television documentary called “Hjernevask” (the Norwegian word for “brainwash”) in which comedian Harald Eia exposed the hopelessly unscientific character of the NIKK.
The comedian, Harald Eia, goes around in the company of his camera team , and asked some innocent questions to the leading researchers and scientists of the NIKK. Then he took the replies and brought them to leading scientists in other parts of the world, notably in the UK and the US, asking them to comment on the findings of their Norwegian peers. As was to be expected, the results of the Norwegian bogus science provoked amusement and incredulity among the international scientific community – especially because it was based on mere theory, never supported by any empirical research.
Mr. Eia filmed those reactions, went back to Oslo, and showed them to the NIKK researchers. It turned out that, when confronted with empiric science, the “Gender Researchers” were speechless, and completely unable to defend their theories against the reality check.
What is more, this documentary was exposed to ridicule in front of the entire TV audience, and people began to ask why it was necessary to fund with 56 million Euro of taxpayers’ money some ideology-driven “research” that had no scientific credentials at all.
As it turned out, a few innocent questions, asked by a comedian, were sufficient to bring down the pompous edifice of “Gender Theory”. That’s how fragile and devoid of logic the ideology is. One documentary is enough to bring it all down.
This documentary is a must watch if you care about philosophy at all. You’ll see how intellectually bankrupt and cult-like gender studies professors are. A comedian just asking them questions and for evidence supporting their claims, makes complete fools of them. That’s all it takes. One comedian.
However, the group has been trying to reorganize in Sweden since 2012. Coincidentally, the documentary is also banned in Sweden, and not allowed to be shown in schools. I wonder why.
The documentary is divided into parts, each of them based on one section of gender ideology. Thanks to someone who downloaded and uploaded them to Video, you can watch all five episodes here. The documentary is in Norwegian, but has English subtitles. Enjoy:
