Boastful College Student Spews Insults At Ben Shapiro, Wife After Campus Speech, Ben Corrects Him On Basic Biology

Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro on Monday evening took questions from college students following his speech, titled “Men cannot become women,” at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro campus.

As Shapiro always does, he asked to take questions from those who oppose him first. One student, who boasted of being a “mathematician and physicist” who “just won the most prestigious award in the country,” seemingly tried to speak to Shapiro about his ideas on so-called “gender identity,” though he ended up imploding and shouting vulgar insults about the author and his wife.

For Shapiro’s part, the host congratulated the student on his award and gave him a basic lesson on biological realities. And at the end of the exchange, he made a quip about the student’s award.

“I’m a mathematician and physicist, here, a double major, and I also just won the prestigious award in the country to pursue research at any institution I want –” the student prefaced his question.

“Ah, congratulations,” a sincere Shapiro interjected.

“So, I think I’m pretty qualified to say that most of what you’re saying is based on old data,” the student claimed.

“I literally cited a study from last month, but sure,” Shapiro said.

“Like, for example, gender identity disorder, that’s a DSM 4 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), bro. We use the DSM 5, now,” the student said.

“I literally cited the DSM 5 in the speech, and it’s called gender dysphoria,” Shapiro explained, before the student started mimicking him in a mocking voice and said Shapiro “sounds like a bozo, bro.”

The insults continued. “And you get no p**** and can’t even get your wife w**, bro, so what’s good?” the student said, smiling to himself.

After boos were let out by the audience, Shapiro replied, “So, the nice thing about having several small children is I don’t feel the necessity to have my masculinity challenged by someone like you.”

The student, more aggressive now, scolded Shapiro for having a “Western colonial idea of gender.”

“You’re right, men and women don’t exist in any other culture,” Shapiro sarcastically shot back. “You’re right. Nailed it.”

“I’m a mathematician and a physicist!” the frustrated student screamed after the two continued to debate “gender identity.”

“As a mathematician and physicist, what in the hell do you know about human biology that allows you to deny it?” Shapiro questioned, sparking applause.

The student then yelled to Shapiro, “You got your law degree from Harvard! What do you know about biology?”

“One other thing,” Shapiro closed up the exchange, “if your logic is so flawed as a mathematician and physicist, I would suggest that whichever institution gave you an award, revoke it immediately.”
