Todd Starnes, writing in Fox News, describes what happened to a professor at Alameda College (Bay area) when he wrote a letter to a local newspaper questioning the college's decision to create a
That's pretty typical for the lunacy that reigns supreme in the Bay area. They can't even print the professor's name because we all know the kinds of threats people face when they offend the wrong people.
And note that according to the article, the professor's reasons are not about homophobia, rather about budget priorities and appearances of nepotism. Yet, this person was subjected to a 4-month-long investigation by the college for sexual harassment? Gimme a break.
Why is it homophobic to question the worthiness of this kind of department in a university? What benefit does it offer a student to major in this? I can see a couple of classes here and there, but not a departmental chair. In the case of California, the money is not there-unless, of course, the college takes it away from some other program.
Let's be honest. These departments are not interested in any serious study of homosexuality. They are more interested in promoting it, celebrating it, and bashing heterosexuals as being intolerant. Like many other victim groups, they refuse to smell the coffee and celebrate the fact that America has come a long way-in my lifetime yet- in accepting gay persons for what they are and not forcing them to live in the closet. I applaud that, but I still don't think it justifies establishing a departmental chair on the subject.
So who wants to accuse me of "sexual harrasment"?
