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 thats 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.

Where Harvard goes, other colleges will follow.
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?
Since when does logic matter to leftwing panderers?
Do they still have a line for male and female?
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.
You stupid registrar.
What I do with my genitals is none of your business...unless you are angling for a dinner invitation.
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.
Hell I don’t know. I just think she’s an idiot.
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?
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.
None of your damn business.
Perhaps the males will offer rimming, fetching, and sex with little boys to qualify for admission.
