Diversity University Part 3

After reading the U of O memo from my last post I was confused about some of the terminology used to describe "transgender" persons. Luckily another taxpayer funded school of higher ed has all the answers I need. Thank you Oregon State University!

I might be transgender...
Answers everything from who are transgender people to what is gender dysphoria. Very informative.

Questions for friends and family
Thankfully our taxpayer funded institution answers such moral questions as "Is there something wrong with being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender?" Their answer: No.
and "Is being LGBT normal?" Their answer: Yes.
Glad they cleared that one up for me. Guess I'll just toss out the old bible...

What about sex?
Your tax dollars paid for this so I'll let you decide if you want to read it.

These universities clearly think they have the moral authority to make statements/judgments on what behavior is ok regardless of whether or not the community that supports the institution with it's tax dollars agrees. Before sending your kids to college have a long talk to them about peer pressure... no, not about drugs, about "diversity."

I'm a tad bit confused...are you for equal rights and all or against it?

I think that you need to clarify what you mean by equal. Do you mean that if I get assaulted by Joe Blow he would be charged with mistemeanor Assault 4, but if Joe Blow assaults a homosexual person then Joe Blow would be charged with a felony "hate crime?" That kind of equality? Cause I am against that. I am for treating everyone equally. We are all the same in God's eyes. I am for treating everyone with decency and respect.
As a matter of public policy I do not think that taxpayer funded institutions have the moral authority to condone homosexual behavior and I do not believe in "gender neutrality."
Where do you stand?
