College commissars instruct gays to come out for their own good

When, in 1981, the Dartmouth Review published the names of the officers of that college’s “Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) along with material that had been taken from the GSA’s confidential files“, the college was in an uproar over this breach of privacy.  Students protested, incensed that the grandfather of one of those students learned about his (closeted) progeny’s sexuality from the Review.

Three years later, when a Review staffer secretly taped a meeting of the GSA nad published a portion of the transcript, the college was (as well it should have been) up in arms, with its administration only reluctantly choosing not to bring charges.  Then-Dean Shanahan, however, did send a letter to “the Dartmouth community calling on them to ‘censure’ the Review for its ‘insensitivity.’”

Now, such “insensitivity” comes not from conservative campus papers, but from colleges themselves, at least here in politically correct California:  “Officials of the University of California system have proposed asking incoming freshmen to identify their sexual orientation, a move that might cement such declarations as an emerging topic in the college admissions process.

Ann Althouse whose post reminded me about the article (had previously seen a link on a Facebook page) quipped:

It’s for their own good. The university has services it wants to provide. All the government’s intrusions into your private life are for your own good. You will be given what is good for you, so come on now, tell us all about everything.

How far we’ve come and how backward we’re moving.

Now, I agree we’re all better off if we come out, but it the business of a university to ask us about our sexual orientation.  Nor to judge us by that difference.

  1. As they did with the promise of free contraceptives, liberals will wholeheartedly welcome this latest intrusion of Government into people’s bedrooms.

  2. They already offer free condoms. I don’t think the lesbians have any need for birth control, but on second thought, if they have ailment, all of them will need it, or insist upon their availability with zero cost FREE.

  3. Cynic here, I think the only reason the UC system is doing this is so they can claim more minorities. They don’t care about the welfare of the students – it just looks real good when they can claim a larger number of victim groups.

    Otherwise, what’s the point? All kinds of sexual services are available on campus – what more can they offer?

  4. Leah – “They don’t care about the welfare of the students – it just looks real good when they can claim a larger number of victim groups.”

    I agree, it’s only about money, just as post grads are used as “cheap labor” for “Big College” so now too will LGBT be used.

  6. Wasn’t there some sort of big thing in the sixties where people got mad about stuff like this? IIRC it ended with employers and colleges not being allowed to ask what race someone was on applications and a bunch of other, similar things. So….is stuff like that cool now? If this is cool for colleges is it ok for businesses and people hiring someone to perform a service too? If so, I’m definitely adding a few things to my “prospective pool boy” questionnaire. And getting a pool.

  7. What I seen in this is a continuation of the left’s drive to obliterate the barriers between the individual and the state by merging the personal and the political; whereas the conservative approach values the individual, and the individual’s rights to privacy and self-determination.

    Who someone chooses to be with is in no way the business of The State. But, when you start demanding special treatment from The State via Affirmative Action, or Hate Crimes Laws, or Diversity Coordinators employed to cater to your group… then you have made it the State’s business. When you demand The State force someone else to pay for your contraception, you make it the State’s business. And, in doing so, you give up a measure of your freedom. And what’s worse is, you don’t just compromise your freedom, you compromise *my* freedom; which is something I did not consent to.

    This is not welcome news; not welcome at all.

  8. Actually anon, they need to have the lesbians come out for their own good.

    the HPV vaccine doesn’t do anything for possible mouth cancers caused by the virus, so for the health and safety of all, they’ll need to be registered and marked to warn people. A tongue in a pink triangle perhaps?

    (Yes, the above was (mostly) sarcasm. The HPV bit wasn’t.)

  9. Hmmm, it seems the same folks who demand a “right to privacy” vis a vis abortion also believe it doesn’t apply to sexual orientation.

    Question: Do you believe in a “right to privacy” and that the government should “keep its hands off your body”?

    Answer: Absolutely.

    Question: Then why the f*** do you support ObamaCare?

  10. “And what’s worse is, you don’t just compromise your freedom, you compromise *my* freedom; which is something I did not consent to. ”

    V the K, you have hit the nail on the head!

    I don’t know why people are missing this point. They are very blithe about taking away other people’s freedoms, even including their rights NOT to do something.

    Nobody seems to remember that the restrictions that start with the poor, the Catholics, the bigotted, the troubled, or whatever disfavored group it may be, never, ever, ever end there.

    The Left really believes in Utopia, they think it can be achieved. They have always thought this, and I suppose they will always think it. From Rousseau on down it is the mainspring that makes them tick.

    And no matter how many mass graves it leads to, they will never believe that it can’t be done “correctly” at soome point.

    This is why they must be driven from power at every level.
