Top ‘LGBT Friendly’ Colleges Offer 'Gender-Free' Bathrooms, ‘Queer Studies’ Minor

Top ‘LGBT Friendly’ Colleges Offer 'Gender-Free' Bathrooms, ‘Queer Studies’ Minor August 22, 2013 - 1:17 PM By Melanie Hunter

(CNSNews.com) – Campus Pride, a gay rights advocacy group, released its annual list of the “Top 25 LGBT Friendly Colleges and Universities” on Tuesday, which includes schools with gender-neutral bathrooms and a minor in “queer studies.”

The top 25 schools had to achieve five stars in overall, sexual orientation, and gender identity/expression categories in order to be listed in the top 25. Each school also had to be 4.5 stars or above in eight LGBT-friendly factor areas.

The final Top 25 had the highest percentage ratings and reflects colleges with student populations from 2500 to over 25,000, both public and private schools.

The University of Oregon is the only institution in the state to offer Queer Studies as a minor in their Department of Women’s and Gender Studies.

“Help change the world with your newfound critical thinking skills by promoting respect in the workplace. Aid a city as it institutes its new gay-marriage law. Promote diversity in adoption rights. You’ll be able to create and foster a culturally responsive community wherever you go,” the university said its website.

Macalester College, a private undergraduate liberal arts college in St. Paul, Minn., has what they call “all gender bathrooms” on campus.

“For those whose gender expression is not always recognized or validated, entering gendered restrooms can result in humiliation, harassment, or violence. To recognize the importance of the safety and comfort of everyone in our community, Macalester wants to ensure access to single-stall and/or all-gender restrooms on campus,” the college’s website said.

Didn’t Graham Spanier push for Penn State to make the top ten ‘LGBT Friendly’ colleges? How did that work out again?

I wonder what the hiring statistics for their graduates look like.

This reminds me of the liberal arts joke that ends “would you like fries with that?” The ending here is “would you like a condom with that?”

Don't worry. Obama's going on a more-money-from-taxpayers-to-subsidize-queer-colleges tour, beginning tomorrow. He's saying that college is too expensive, so you know what that means: more money from us taxpaying suckers.

I'm proud of all my daughters. But my middle daughter did particularly well in high school and got inundated with tons of college recruiting mail.

I asked her how she ever got through so much mail and she told me that she was able to toss about 75% of it in the trash with a simple test: namely, those who promoted these type of courses, Women's Studies and the like.

Another 75% of the remaining 25% disqualified themselves in like manner with just a little bit of on-line research. That left something like 6% of her offers available for further consideration.

Ah, another indication of a college which will have absolutely no standards - moral or intellectual.

Perfect place for the Obamas of this world.

Would you hire someone with “Queer Studies” on their resume? On the other hand, that will make due diligence efforts a little easier.

I expect these places will be right on top of Obama’s new college rankings. (Which, of course, will mean lots of federal $$$ to crank out gender-liberated Queer Studies majors to staff the federal bureaucracy.)

Nothing new there. I heard that over 30 years ago, at least for lesbians. The reason I heard was that being a teachers college, there were almost no men students.

LOL same here. Even my alumni booster’s club keep asking me for money and I’ve never given a dime. I owe them nothing as I paid for my tuition.

“and a minor in “queer studies.”

I’ll admit my mostly liberal arts undergraduate work was not the most market-oriented career path I could have chosen. Still, I feel pretty good about the fact that I never picked a minor in anything called queer studies.

But then again, I am a meat-eating member of the white power structure. So you know, I must driven by an innate intolerance for such things or something.

“The University of Massachusetts, Amherst has the first LGBTQA floor to be established on a college campus.”

Okay, I’m afraid to ask (and too lazy to Google), but what does the QA in LBGTQA stand for?

I was saddened to see that the University of Southern California is on that list, but I'm not surprised. Once known for its conservatism, USC has been moving left since 1980, when James Zumberge became its president. John Wesley and Methodist Episcopal Church Bishop Matthew Simpson, watching over the campus from their perch atop Bovard Tower, are doubtlessly disgusted.

PC liberalism at Stanford became manifest in 1972, when they changed their name from the Indians to the Cardinals.

Stanford called itself the Cardinals from 1972 to 1981. One story that I heard was that since Stanford styled itself as the Harvard of the West, they chose Cardinal for their nickname to ape Harvard, which calls itself the Crimson.
