Ryerson Social Work prof who has a problem with Jewish agencies now on leave

Good news: Heather Bain the Ryerson U Social Work prof who refused to allow a student to do her placement with a Jewish social work agency is now on leave, and “will no longer be working with” students.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that besides having a thing against Jewish agencies, Bain also seems to have a thing against agencies serving men.
Social work student Kathryn Wallace wanted to do her placement at the Canadian Centre for Men and Families. According to Wallace, Bain told her the mere existence of this centre was an act of violence. Wallace explained she’s a victim of real violence and that’s why she’s so committed to working with the male population: if men can get the help they need, it may reduce violence.
But Bain was having none of it. Rather than give Wallace the placement she requested, gave her a sexual assault colouring book. (You can’t make this stuff up. - see here.)
In fairness to Bain, she’s simply carrying out the mandate of the Ryerson School of Social Work, which divides society into oppressed groups and oppressor groups; good groups and bad, underprivileged and privileged.
Bain’s problem is that apparently no one explained to her that you’re supposed to emphasize the groups your stand with, not to make it so obvious which groups you’re against.
Read about Bain’s refusal to allow a placement at Jewish agencies here.
And here’s the relevant “Core Value” from the Ryerson School of Social Work, setting out the school’s political ideology. (Apart from the fact that their ideology reveals itself as a nasty pile of bigotry, has it never occurred to Ryerson's School of Social Work that the government gives them millions of dollars in order to educate students, not to indoctrinate them?):
"We stand with communities and populations that experience oppression and marginalization, including poverty, exploitation and domination, and seek to work with all those committed to the advancement of anti-oppression/anti-racism, anti-Black racism, anti-colonialism/decolonization, Aboriginal reconciliation, feminism, anti-capitalism, queer and trans liberation struggles, issues in disability and Madness, among other social justice struggles."
I have for my entire life been an advocate for equality. I find nothing so revolting as the fact that self-styled social justice activists are busily dividing society into good groups and bad. Nothing good ever comes of such nonsense.
Equality yes; "social justice" racism no. See here.
