    The University of Minnesota Duluth will begin offering a minor in LGBTQ studies so that students can be better prepared for life in “an increasingly diverse society.” To complete the minor, students will have to take classes such as “An Introduction to LGBTQ” (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer), “Queer Theory,” “Queer Media,” “Queer Cinema in International Perspective” and “History of the Homosexual Rights,” Campus Reform reported. “This minor will prepare students for life,” Gesa Zinn, head of the Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies Department, told Campus Reform. ” ‘The job’ the LGBTQ minor prepares students for is to understand and...

    The saga of University of California, Santa Barbara feminist studies professor Mireille Miller-Young has taken yet another bizarro twist after her defenders urged a judge to excuse the criminal allegations against her because of the “cultural legacy of slavery.” Miller-Young pleaded no contest last month to misdemeanor counts of battery, theft and vandalism after she rallied up a small gaggle of female vigilantes and attacked abortion protesters Thrin Short, 16, and Joan Short, 21. Miller-Young, who specializes in queer theory, black film and pornography, apparently failed to mention either “racial hatred” or “right-wing political sentiment” when she speaking to police...

    W. C. Harris is a radical gay activist and Professor of Queer Studies and Early American Literature. He says that homosexuals are still cruelly oppressed in America, even though some of them may end up with very comfortable jobs as university professors.... He is particularly angry with the Christian right for oppressing him.... So he would like to abolish Christianity altogether....and replace it with that he wittily calls “Gaytheism,” i.e., homosexual atheism. Unlike beastly old Christianity, this new religion will meet our spiritual needs with “new forms of community that do not harass and malign gay and lesbian Americans or...

    At a time when most people pick out pine trees, many English professors make plans to travel to the annual convention of the Modern Language Association. Accuracy in Academia is, as usual, sending a correspondent to cover the event. Nevertheless, we thought that we would share with you what promise to be the most intriguing panels and presentations of the 2011 MLA meeting: o Dickens and Psychoanalysis o Queer Ecology o Literary Autism o Intolerance in Queer Cinema o Queer Studies and the future of the profession o Cultural Studies in Post-Socialist Spaces o Queering Lawrence [D. H.] o Queer...

    Shakesqueer: the Sequel by: Bethany Stotts, March 27, 2008 We got an anonymous e-mail last week that claimed that “Bethany Stotts’s article on the Shakespeare panel at MLA (1/9/08) attributed two of the panels to the wrong scholars and then misquoted them.” ....What follows, then, is both an update and an answer. A listed speaker at the MLA forum, Princeton Professor Jeffrey Nunokawa was replaced at the last moment by Professor Ellis Hanson of Cornell University. Accuracy and Academia awarded Hanson the number one slot in its ’98-’99 “Top Politically Correct” professors for his defense of teaching pedophilia in the...

    Shakesqueer by: Bethany Stotts, January 09, 2008 Chicago, Ill.—The recent Shakespeare panel at the 2007 Modern Language Association (MLA) convention, ironically titled “Shakesqueer,” featured four queer theorists presenting articles soon to be published by the notoriously liberal Duke University press. The panelists described the collection as the first reputable, scholarly collection of Shakespeare queer theory criticism, and it will join other illustrious Duke Press lesbian bisexual gay transsexual (LGBT) titles such as “Barbie’s Queer Accessories,” “Desiring Disability: Queer Theory Meets Disability Studies,” “Female Masculinity,” and “In the Name of National Security: Hitchcock, Homophobia, and the Political Construction of Gender in...

    A devil food is turning our kids into homosexuals Posted: December 12, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern There's a slow poison out there that's severely damaging our children and threatening to tear apart our culture. The ironic part is, it's a "health food," one of our most popular. Now, I'm a health-food guy, a fanatic who seldom allows anything into his kitchen unless it's organic. I state my bias here just so you'll know I'm not anti-health food. The dangerous food I'm speaking of is soy. Soybean products are feminizing, and they're all over the place. You can hardly escape them...

    The Australian ^ | 21st April 2006 | Steve Lewis and Imre Salusinszky
    JOHN Howard believes the postmodern approach to literature being taught in schools is "rubbish" and is considering tying education funding to ending the "gobbledegook" taught in some states. The Prime Minister made the threat after accusing the state education authorities of "dumbing down" the English syllabus and succumbing to political correctness. "I feel very, very strongly about the criticism that many people are making that we are dumbing down the English syllabus," Mr Howard said. Australia's most distinguished literary scholar, Leonie Kramer, yesterday agreed with the Prime Minister's criticism of how English is taught in high schools. Dame Leonie, professor...

    On April 27th of this year, the heavy hand of Bolshevism clamped down upon David Parker, a Lexington, MA. citizen and father of a six year old son. David was arrested on trumped up charges, handcuffed like a dangerous felon, and led off to jail. His heinous crime? Parker is guilty of being a morally principled man with the courage to request that he and his wife be given advance notification when issues of sexual unnaturalness and perversion (transgenderism, sodomy, and same-sex headed relationships) were going to be discussed in his son's classroom. Said Parker, "certain authorities insist that I...

    Inside Higher Education ^ | Mary Ann Dellinger
    On Being the ‘Other’ By Mary Ann Dellinger When one interviews for a tenure-track position at Virginia Military Institute, the process often seems more like an orientation session than an exploration of a suitable match between the interviewee’s credentials and the mission of the institute. From the dean to the last of one’s future colleagues, the candidate is reminded once and again of the “unique military atmosphere” that defines VMI; the requirement that all faculty wear a uniform, the fact that all uniformed faculty and staff adhere to military protocol, and that one does not refer to the VMI campus...

    View From The Right ^ | 1998 | David Horowitz
    HOROWITZ ON QUEER LIBERATION On queer liberation as the ultimate revolutionary project, from David Horowitz's 1998 book, The Politics of Bad Faith: To the queer theorist, all identities, gay and straight, are the product of the socially imposed ideal—hetero-normativity—which structures the system of oppression. For the new revolutionaries, the enemy is no longer a ruling class or a hegemonic race or even a dominant gender, but the sexual order of nature itself. . . . Oppression lies in the very idea of the normal, the fixed order that arrays humanity into two complementary, procreating sexes. It is the gender-patriarchy system...

    Agape Press ^ | Jim Brown
    (AgapePress) - Christian students who openly opposed a pro-homosexual event at their Wisconsin public school met stiff resistance from school officials. The Gay Straight Alliance Club at Evansville High School recently held a "Day of Silence" to protest alleged discrimination against homosexuals. The club was permitted to advertise the event through posters, literature, and on the school intercom. The school even provided them with a "safe room" to sit in if they felt they were being harassed during the day. But a group of Christian students who countered the Day of Silence by praying and sharing Bible verses in the...

    Selling Homosexuality by Matt Kaufman You generally know an ad campaign when you see it, and you don't take it seriously. You may buy Pepsi, but you don't really believe drinking it makes you cool because Britney Spears pitches it. But you may not recognize an ad campaign so easily when it's not relegated to paid 30-second spots. Or when the product being sold isn't a soft drink, but an idea, or an attitude, or a worldview. Which brings us to a fascinating article in the Regent University Law Review. In an issue analyzing various aspects of gay activism, one...

    At a high school in prosperous Newton, Massachusetts, it’s “To B GLAD Day”—or, less delicately, Transgender, Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian Awareness Day. An advocacy session for students and teachers features three self-styled transgendered individuals—a member of the senior class and two recent graduates. One of the transgenders, born female, announces that “he” had been taking hormones for 16 months. “Right now I am a 14-year-old boy going through puberty and a 55-year-old woman going through menopause,” she complains. “I am probably the moodiest person in the world.” A second panelist declares herself an “androgyne in between both genders of society.” She...
