Harvard Picks First BGLTQ Director
Harvard Crimson ^ | July 03, 2012 | NATHALIE R. MIRAVAL

Posted on 07/05/2012 9:49:02 AM PDT by reaganaut1

Harvard has appointed Vanidy “Van” Bailey as the College’s first permanent director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. Bailey, the assistant director for education at the University of California, San Diego, will assume the new position on July 16.

Last April, Dean of the College Evelynn M. Hammonds announced her intention to hire a full-time staffer dedicated to serving the BGLTQ community on campus.

In a statement to students, Hammonds said that the decision was based on recommendations made by the BGLTQ Working Group, which she created in October 2010 to evaluate BGLTQ experiences and needs at the College.

In an email, Bailey expressed excitement for connecting with BGLTQ students and staff at Harvard and said that the first task for the new director would be setting goals for the upcoming academic year.

At UCSD, Bailey oversees programs at the BGLTQ Resource Center and advises student organizations.

In September 2011, the College announced that Lisa “Lee” Forest of Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts would be its first director of BGLTQ student life. However, one month later, Forest turned down the position at Harvard for “personal and professional reasons.”

...

CORRECTION: July 3

An earlier version of this article used the pronoun "she" to refer to Vanidy "Van" Bailey, the newly appointed director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. In fact, Bailey prefers not to be referred to by any gendered pronoun.

What does a BGLTQ director do? The correction would be funny if we weren't paying for the crap at Harvard, through Pell grants, tax deductions for donations, tax exemptions for gains on a $30 billion endowment, and worst of all, Harvard graduates like Obama and Romney.

This reads like a parody including the fact that the Queer Activities director can't figure out what sexual affiliation it is. Freepers who are sons of Fair Harvard rejoice, this is a proud moment.

What’s the difference between Gay and Queer?

Or, perhaps I don’t want to know.

“Bailey prefers not to be referred to by any gendered pronoun.”

So I guess “it” is appropriate in this instance.

I agree, if it weren't from Harvard Crimson, I would assume this piece appeared in the Onion. I wish the "Gay rights" groups would settle on initials for their movement. I've heard GLBT, LGBT, GLBTQ, BGLTQ, etc. And why would "Queer" be used by gays to describe themselves? Don't they know what that word means? It would be like some "latino power" organization referring to themselves as "spics"

And how did “B” get pride of place before “G” and “L”? Don’t tell me it’s alphabetical, because then “T” would be last, after “Q”.

It looks to me like there’s been some sort of covert power struggle between the letters-— or too much mix in the mix-and-match. A sure path to STD -—and you end up with HIV.

They actually use not only the “bisexual” label, but “Queer”???

We’re dealing a bunch of filthy scumbags on the left. The only approriate response is an obcene one which can’t be printed here.

But I’ll clean it up. Somewhat. Shouldn’t there be directors for people who favor felatio, (straight) anal sex, masturbation, a million other things? For lots of people these are jsut as serious topics, lifestyles, emotional issues, etc.

The left is just defecating on us in public and society smiles and asks for more.

Just as well. I think the designation "it" is probably more accurate anyway.

Shouldn’t the response to that be “too friggin bad”? Maybe I want to be referred to as a malomar.

And we even have to discuss the obvious fact liberals do nothing but waste money on insane leftist projects?

Whaddya mean ‘reads like’? This had better be a parody, or the American Academy has truly somersaulted into the abyss of nihilism. This must be a parody. Surely to God!

I’m sick and tired of all this GLBT crap.

I don’t give a flying fig what people do in the privacy of their own homes, but I do wonder why some people seem to think I need to hear about it constantly.

Its not an issue of equal protection under the law anymore, its OMG LOOKIT ME IM GAY!! GAY I TELL YOU!!

Erm.. yeah, we get it.

###

For many “professors” setting foot inside a classroom is to be avoided whenever possible.

Univeristy staffs could EASILY be halved, across the board, without anyone noticing.

Of course it doesn’t!

So is it the “B”, the “G”, the “L”, the “T” or the “Q”?

What are you besides a “D” for disgrace!?!

If I can wake up and decide that I’m a woman, despite all physical evidence, and force others to treat me as a woman by power of law,...

Then why can’t I say that I’m black and demand to be treated as a protected class???

How long before a similar position is created at West Point, Annapolis, the USAF Academy, in order to further the creation of ‘special class’ status on all those who are not heterosexual? The USAF has had ‘race relations officers’, once called ‘social actions officers’ as a career ladder for decades. It is of course just a uniformed welfare plantation for underperforming black officers. How long before there is a mandated ‘queer relations’ officer posted at least at brigade or wing level and on every US Navy ship to watch over the special class privileges of the gay brigade. How long before charming activities such as wolf packing will be normalized because going after the perpetrators has to many potential negative career impacts for most officers? This silly article is just another milestone on the road to transforming America into an ugly twisted amoral sewer so that a small minority of evil people can enjoy their revenge on a society they hate with all the passion of their satanic beings.

I’m offended that you refer to it as a disorder. I’ve always known I was black. Even as a child playing cowboys and indians, I would hold my cap pistols flat on their sides and pretend that I was being oppressed.
