We "healed wounds" by clapping for each group. Blacks, whites, women, stood and we clapped. Then she asked gays to stand . Then she asked us to clap for "Secretly gay 10% of the population" "Did I leave out anyone?"
I stood and said "I always knew I was different. I really dug funerals as a kid, especially corpse skin. I always got so..... excited and all. I didn't understand that I was just different. At puberty I realized I was a necrophiliac. I have decided to come out. I am tired of people saying I am perverted! I need love and acceptance, too!"
The horrified looks on some of the older secretaries was PRICELESS. My fellow engineers were biting on pens to keep from laughing. The look of pure hatred from the facilitator (who was a lesbian, btw) was all I could do to keep from laughing.
My supervisor called me into his office and asked me "what the HELL were you thinking?" and then started laughing.
I was planning on leaving anyway (I started my own business), but the division manager was a real pc wingnut and made a point of calling me in and firing me for "disrespect to homosexuals." I asked her if she thought I had a chance at an EEOC lawsuit. She called security and had me escorted off the property. That was 15 years ago and whenever I see guys out that I worked with they bring that up. I would not trade it for anything.
I wonder what (exactly) the final exam is?
Actually, it's an English Lit class. http://www.lsa.umich.edu/lsa/cg_detail/0,,8,00.html?termArray=f_05_1560&term=Fall%202005&content=1560ENGLISH317002
Do you have any other Michigan resident FReeper friends you can ping?
What's with him being gay, anyway? His wife is pretty hot.
If I thought I could get a feminist to hit it, I'd go for it.
What kind of a job do you apply for with a B.A. in Homosexual Studies ? A hairdresser, airline steward ..?
I realize we are talking about wacky libs but, FWIW, why should homosexuals be concerned about access to abortion? Since they can't get pregnant on their own, why would it matter to them?
In fact, you'd think homosexuals would be pro-life since they have to depend on everyone else to create children who will someday be paying the taxes for health care for all the AIDS-infected poofters who are unemployable. Somehow that simple logic escapes them. They are slaves to their false gods even when their false gods contribute to their own genocide (forcing them to recruit from among the rest of us).
"I guess we can put one aspect of the homosexual debate to rest...if you have to take a course from the University of Michigan to learn "how to be gay," I guess that resolves the question of whether or not it's learned behavior or a behavioral choice."

Easy remedy. If you're a Michigan grad, just tell them not to ask you for money, because you won't give them any until they come back down to earth.
Classic story; wish I could've seen it.
What would they need this class for if gays are born that way?
Are you a Michigan grad? I'm not, but they will get an email from me expressing my displeasure with their idiocy.
"the How to be Gay class seek(s) ultimately to create the basis for a wider acceptance of the plurality of ways in which people determine how to be gay.
Doesnt that kind of fly in the face of people being "born" gay and just knowing it?
Why do you have to be taught something that "experts" say you are born knowing?
*teacher calls for security*
I'm afraid we are going to hit bottom so hard there will be no picking up the pieces.
be careful, eventually University of Michigan will require a homosexual experience as a graduation requirement.
University of Michigan just became the "gay" university no mother or father should allow their child ANYWHERE near.
