A job posting seeking an assistant professor at a Canadian university is drawing attention for its display of the slippery slope argument in opposition to woke ideology after it expressly prohibited what might otherwise be known as normal men from applying.
The University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada just closed their posting for an assistant science professor on Friday after announcing the opening on March 21. The initial description is rather mundane citing the need for “an exceptional scholar and researcher to fill a Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Tier 2 Canada Research Chair and tenure track position” with a start date of July 1. They even invite the possibility to offering the “rank of Associate Professor” for “an exceptional candidate.”
However, unlike some job posts that promote buzzwords like diversity and inclusion to ensure all applicants know the only necessary qualifications are whether or not you can do the job, the University of Waterloo has some governmentally supported discrimination they would like to promote.
“This call is open only to qualified individuals who self-identify as women, transgender, non-binary, or two-spirit,” it explained in no uncertain terms. For those unfamiliar with the term two-spirit, one organization defines it as “an umbrella term that bridges Indigenous and Western people’s comprehension of gender and sexuality.”
They go on to explain, “Many indigenous groups have identified with this label for hundreds of years….It is important to note that Two-Spirit is a native identity – non-native LGBTQ+ people should not use it as a way to identify.”
So, in other words, the University of Waterloo is not interested in your stellar background in the Natural Sciences if you are a man with a penis who is also a non-native one-spirited person.
“The University values the diverse and intersectional identities of its students, faculty, and staff. The University regards equity and diversity as an integral part of academic excellence and is committed to accessibility for all employees,” the posting claims. “The University of Waterloo seeks applicants who embrace our values of equity, anti-racism and inclusion. As such, we encourage applications from candidates who have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including applicants who identify as Indigenous peoples (e.g., First Nations, Métis, Inuit/Inuk), Black, racialized, people with disabilities, women and/or 2SLGBTQ+.”
According to the university, this decision is not only acceptable by the government of Ontario, but it is codified in law. The guide provided by the Ontario Human Rights Commission on special programs and the Human Rights Code indicates, “It gives everyone the right to equal treatment in employment, housing, goods, services and facilities, contracts, and membership in unions, trade or occupational associations based on Code grounds. Everyone is entitled to be free from discrimination in these areas based on” several categories that include their sex.
Now, if you believe that this means the university should not be allowed to discriminate against men in their job posting, under normal circumstances you’d be right. However, the Code is happy to contradict itself and claims “it is not discrimination to put in place a program if it is designed to: Relieve hardship or economic disadvantage; Help disadvantaged people or groups to achieve, or try to achieve, equal opportunity or; Help eliminate discrimination.”

So, in Ontario it is completely legal to discriminate if it is for ends deemed socially acceptable. If you house any doubt that this won’t soon become the practice in other locations, like the United States for instance, it’s important to understand this is already being done to some extent.
A survey by Intelligent found that 34 percent of white college students lied on their applications about being some kind of minority to help their chances of admission; that included nearly half of all male students. Seventy-seven percent of those who claimed a minority status were accepted demonstrating that the university system may already be passively engaged in this form of discrimination.
