GRAD CERTIFICATE IN TRANSGENDER STUDIES
Campus Report ^ | May 2014 | Deborah Lambert

Posted on 05/28/2014 11:43:10 AM PDT by Academiadotorg

When it comes to today’s college curricula, nothing, it seems, is beyond the pale.

Case in point: At San Diego State University, a brand new graduate program will offer an “Advanced Certificate in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies,” starting this fall, according to Nathan Harden, editor of The College Fix. A university press release describes the program as a way to “advance knowledge in sexual and gender identity, and increase understanding of the diverse cultural, historical, ethnic, racial and contemporary experiences of people across sexualities.”

The new LGBT certificate is actually no surprise for a school that honors San Diego’s annual Pride Week with a rainbow flag raising ceremony and offers a “Lavender” graduation ceremony each spring, reserved exclusively for students “who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or allies.”

What is noteworthy is that this is a public school, which means this and other weapons in “San Diego State’s arsenal of programs designed to shape the moral and political views of the youth” are all offered at taxpayer expense. In fact, while a cultural diversity class is required for graduation, students can go through all four years without ever taking a class in American history.

Graduates with said degree are hoping they’ll be hired on as government Commissars.

I remember when a tranny was the mechanical device that transferred the energy from your engine to the wheels.

This degree is offered because soon, schools will be required to have an LGBTQ counselor with that degree. Probably city governments, too, and big companies will have their “diversity” programs graded on whether or not they have trained, credentialed people.

Just guessing, but it sounds right (and sort of like quartering troops on your land).

When graduates start their apprenticeships do their employers provide tools or do they need to buy their own?

Every corporation now has jobs like “Diversity Compliance Officer” and so on to satisfy the feds that they’re not violating anybody’s equal employment and other civil rights. That’s where the Transsexual Diploma grads end up, and at very handsome salaries I might add.

It’s a lucrative scam to say the least.

I’m reminded of The Lee Corso Show when he pretended to be football coach at Indiana. He’d have the “Senior of the Week” on his show, and would usually grab the kid around the shoulders, look at the camera and say: “Somebody give this kid a job!”

What the heck would I do with a grad student in Transgender Studies? I wouldn’t know whether to make them third shift assistant mens’ room attendant, or assign them to the ladies’ room.

Oh...You are correct! There will be a whole new department. The Department of LGBT - No one will make under $200,000/ year and the taxpayer will take another arrow in the ass.

Yes, about a mile away on El Cajon Boulevard.

Yep, entire buildings full of LGBT studies people whose job it is to make sure that everyone complies with the new government regulations that ensure everyone thinks correctly.

Is it a degree in technique, or is it a degree in the ravings and droolings of perverted fanatics?

The whole world has gone insane.

There is almost no country that has not embraced the sick perversion of homosexuality as normal, that then goes on to celebrate this sickness and promote it, and then goes on to create hate crimes or create an environment where people lose their jobs if they disagree with this sickness.

On top of this, the rest of the world is insane with the sick cult of islam; possibly the only countries that do not embrace the sick perversion of homosexuality.

We live in a world gone insane.

Well, I’m in favor of it. I certainly don’t want unqualified people making my trannies. One freezes up on you on a trip and AAA always sends you to the most expensive guy.

You know, we could have like factories, that made stuff people wanted and would pay money for. Other people could have jobs there. And we could mine metals, too. I've heard they are in the ground, like under our feet! People could do that too! And we'd like do real work, you know?

But I guess I'm just a rube in the sticks. This is so much more "enlightened."

WelI guess that prepares graduates with more than one way to go when they graduate. Checking the want ads one often sees: new graduates with understading of transgender issues needed in expanding company, excellent pay and benefits. Choice of restroom facilities and very relaxed dress code.

Add that rubbish to a degree in “ community organizing” and you get a lifetime welfare case to continue sucking off the taxpayers for what, another fifty years or so? Just another way to weaken USA. The Transformation of Amerika is well underway, with our public colleges right up there in the vanguard. Boy o boy do we need a good housecleaning!

Graduate with this degree and the National Parks Service will hire you immediately to staff all of those new LGBT “historical” sites that they are going to add to the national registry. There are a lot of interstate highway restrooms that are in need!

And I can even remember when it was called a "transmission."

It might be good for getting a teaching assistant job in the transgender studies program, if that.
