„The decision by the Hungarian government earlier this fall to withdraw accreditation from gender studies programs — a full-frontal governmental assault on an academic discipline — sent shock waves ​through the field.

Gender studies „has no business [being taught] in universities,“ because it is „an ideology not a science,“ a deputy to Hungary’s prime minister, Zsolt Semjen, told the international news agency Agence France-Presse.

„No one wants to employ a gender-ologist,“ Semjen said.

Kommentar GB:

Es handelt sich den Gender Studies m. E. um eine Ideologie, und zugleich um einen großangelegten, und für die Gesellschaft um einen ebenso teuren wie nutzlosen Wissenschaftsbluff.

Und das hat überhaupt nichts mit „links“ oder „rechts“ im politischen Sinne zu tun.
