Colleges and universities have long been bastions of liberalism. Today they are pushing woke ideas such as pronouns and some have even allowed students to decide which sex they put on their official records, regardless of what their birth certificate says. Now, Boston University has taken inclusiveness to a new level.
Boston University has published what it calls an Out List. The stated Objective of the Out List is “[t]o promote visibility, connectedness, and sharing of resources among LGBTQIA+ faculty, staff, students, and the larger Boston University community.”
One person wants to know, “WTF is going on in this country?” Good question!
In 2020 the LGBTQIA+ Faculty and Staff Community Network (FSCN) was formed. Then, members of BU’s Queer Activist Coalition contacted the FSCN about creating a university-wide “platform for students to connect with and learn more about queer faculty and staff,” says the website.
That platform now exists at BU in the form of its Out List. Whoever decides to join the list can share information about their “gender identity, sexual orientation, whether they were a first-generation student, racial and ethnic identities, religion, and more.”
The college was concerned that they weren’t welcoming enough because their LGBTQIA+ faculty and staff were invisible. Well, now they aren’t because you can see all of them right on the World Wide Web.
According to Campus Reform, “[i]nitiatives such as the Out List are part of a broader trend in higher education of universities attempting to advertise their queer credentials, a trend exemplified by the Campus Pride Index (CPI).” They continued, saying “CPI is an organization that allows universities to pay a $225 annual fee to be listed on their site as ‘LGBTQ-friendly’, and showcase their LGBT bona fides.”
Fun fact: “Ocasio-Cortez attended Boston University, where she double-majored in international relations and economics, graduating cum laude.” Now we understand just how radical they are at Boston University.
So basically students can now reach out to faculty and staff who share their sexual preference. I mean, that’s it in a nutshell, right? What if male professors decided they wanted to create a list of like-minded young female co-eds? It’s doubtful that would go over well at all. Why is it okay if you’re gay?
