Conservative media platform leader Ben Shapiro’s quick mind has elevated him in the left-leaning media world and allowed him to best a heckler shouting “F*** you” during a speech titled, “Men cannot become women.”
Shapiro, who captains the Daily Wire’s 200 employees and $100+ million annual budget, was speaking at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro campus when a heckler attempted to interrupt the program by shouting an expletive.
Shapiro addressed the disruption by saying: “Okay, so two quick things; one: ‘F*** you’ is not an argument,” And two: no thanks, I’m not interested.” Shapiro’s comments were met by cheers.
Shapiro was heckled as he discussed the high suicide rates of people who identify as transgender, “even if they’ve had so-called “gender-affirming.” according to The Daily Wire.
Shapiro shared in a Q & A time following his presentation, including responding to comments from a student who spewed insults at the Shapiro after unsuccessfully trying to point out flaws in his sources.
The Daily Wire reported profiled the exchange:
“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 quickly responded.
“Like, for example, gender identity disorder, that’s a DSM 4 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), bro. We used 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.”
