LGBT Question May Be Added to Admissions Application (Harvard)
The Harvard Crimson ^ | November 16, 201 | Justin C. Worland , CRIMSON STAFF WRITER

Posted on 11/16/2011 3:31:21 PM PST by Salman

The College is considering adding language to its application for admission that would allow prospective students to self-identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender, Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid William R. Fitzsimmons ’67 told The Crimson.

“We want to send a positive signal to students who are grappling with the issue of [sexual orientation] or gender identity,” Fitzsimmons said. “I think this campus is really welcoming to all students and that’s the signal we want to send.”

Fitzsimmons said identification as LGBT would not act as a positive “tip” in the application process, unlike other factors like place of residence and legacy status which can help land an applicant in the group of accepted students.

So, is the Harvard application form now the shortest in the nation??

1. Parents’ political affiliation, including high-ranking political contacts...

2. Parents’ financial statements

3. White, male, heterosexual?? (Automatic denial unless the contacts in question #1 are *really* high-ranking...)

If Harvard claims to be welcoming to all, then why do they need to be MORE welcoming to a certain group?

Recruiter: Now, are either of you homosexuals?
John Winger: [John and Russell look at each other] You mean, like, flaming, or...
Recruiter: Well, it’s a standard question we have to ask.
Russell Ziskey: No, we’re not homosexual, but we are *willing to learn*.
John Winger: Yeah, would they send us someplace special?

Bull puckey. My niece goes to Western Michigan and calls them LUGs (Lebian Until Graduation). Seems that certain advantages and perks are given to the "oppressed class".

Think that’s bad, I have a cousin who whines that she is oppressed because she says she’s “androgynous/celebrate”.

She’s from Kalamazoo, Michigan’s second most liberal city after Ann Arbor.

Are you sure that's not “androgynous/celibate"? There's a big difference. :)

This is great! Now the lawyers can go to Harvard and ask what % of each biological gender self-identified as gay. Then they can compare that number to the student body, the entering class, and the general population, and file lots of discrimination lawsuits. The older I get, the stupider Harvard gets.

I wonder how long it will be before the Ivy League and other colleges REQUIRE applicants to sign an affirmation APPROVING of LGBT (im)morality, all in the name of “tolerance,” of course.

We wouldn’t want any bigots on campus now, would we?

I'm sure this pandering by Harvard will lead to a massive drop in their enrollment, thousands of current students dropping out of Harvard and thousands upon thousands of high school Valedictorians tearing up their Harvard acceptance letters in disgust.

Harvard University - The world’s most expensive non-stop freak show and sex circus.

I’ve worked there. I’ve seen it.

What goes on at Harvard would make a Penn State football coach blush.

Now this is interesting.

Say I wanted to go to hahvahd. If I knew it would benefit me to self-identify as LBGT and checked that box how would the hahvahd people know? Are they going to follow the students around to make sure that they engage in behaviors proving that they are LBGT? Oops!

I shouldn’t give them any ideas.

Perhaps the males will offer rimming, fetching, and sex with little boys to qualify for admission.

Probably a boon for U of Chicago, Washington University in St. Louis, MIT, Hillsdale, and Grove City.

Cheers!

That's probably true - no doubt the question is being asked so that people in the admissions office get first dibs on "recruiting" members of the incoming freshman class for more personal, um, "counseling" (yeah, that's the ticket)...

How did the old hippy song go ? — “We don’t want your education?....” and something about “all in all it’s just another brick in the wall...” Once an institution turns its back on the Veritas Christo et Ecclessae they lose lose any credibility.

this is going to go on more and more until we have a public figures or figures speaking out what is normal and what is not.

cross dressing, cutting off bits to your body, having sex with the same sex regardless of the health and disease issues are classed as normal to some on the left.

well it needs to be told to these deluded fools that it is not normal, they need to seek mental help.

It's really amazing how in the last decade the death cult of pederasty and sodomy is now dominating our culture. Quite amazing.
