Elmhurst College, Nathan Harden reports in the National Review’s Phi Beta Cons,
. . . has become the first college in the nation to directly ask applicants if they are gay. The question, “Would you consider yourself to be a member of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered) community?” appears on the school’s new admissions application.
Students who self-identify as could could even “qualify for a scholarship worth one-third of tuition at the private, liberal arts school”.
Guess this helps promote the notion of sexuality as a protected victim class entitled to all rights, privileges and honors pertaining thereto.
This is absurd. Colleges shouldn’t ask about such things on their applications and focus instead on the student’s merits, his accomplishments.
