As in, how to initiate contact with the womenfolk with intent to get your freak on; basically, the same thing this course is doing, but for straight guys.

I'd recommend it for all accredited engineering programs.

Perhaps they can get extra credit acquiring some of the newer drug-resistant strains of HIV.

What kind of a job do you apply for with a B.A. in Homosexual Studies ? A hairdresser, airline steward ..?

Gracious, no. You continue your studies, with your tuition covered by a teaching assistantship during your master's degree years and a research assistantship during your doctoral study. Then you do a post-doc. After that you apply for tenure-track professor positions in the many departments of GLBT (that's Gay, Lesbian Bi-sexual and Transgender Studies). You get one, and with hard work and some Ford Foundation funding, eventually wind up with an endowed chair at an ivy league school and more speaking invitations than you can handle (not unlike Ward Churchill).

Btw, it's tres gauche to refer to the field as Homosexual Studies. The proper term is Queer Studies.

I'm afraid we are going to hit bottom so hard there will be no picking up the pieces.

If I knew things were hopeless, I'd say get it over with. I don't want to live in a sunset empire, or watch younger generations succumb to some awful fate.

It's the weirdest thing, but Japan is the only country I see as truly civil anymore, good cultured, and somewhat Westernized. All other nations are being subdued and subverted by the worst social models imaginable. (Maliciously, in my radical view.)

Immorality, decadence and perversion, are all the historical hallmarks of great nations on the way down. The homo agenda in this country must fail ..or we will.

I stood and said "I always knew I was different. I really dug funerals as a kid, especially corpse skin...I would not trade it for anything.

You sure made the best of your fifteen minutes of fame! Salute!

"I wonder how many credit hours this class will count for?"

I don't know, but the tuition is to be paid for in three dollar bills.

Yeah, I wish they had "how to be a heterosexual male" courses when I was in college. Heck, I might have even shown up for the labs.

A class? I'm surprised it's not already a campus department. ....or at least a major. Or a rear admiral

I didn't know it was all that complicated to be gay.

I thought it was mainly "insert tab A into ....." well you get the idea.....

"I'm proud to be part of aculture known over theworld as a beacon for freedom, opportunity, and a place for oppressed peoples. I am part of a group that, when we dominated western culture, produced more freedom, more tolerance, more wealth, more healthy people, than any civilization in history, so that oppressed minorities from all over the world want to come here."



And a big bump to your "disrespect to homosexuals"

Almost makes me want to leave my own business to submit myself to some PC training to follow in your footsteps!
