Maximum Acronym

Posted on | February 21, 2015 | 84 Comments

After years of struggle, the Rainbow Alphabet — LGBT — has been extended to maximum inclusivity at Wesleyan University:

Open House is a safe space for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Queer, Questioning, Flexual, Asexual, Genderf–k, Polyamourous, Bondage/Disciple, Dominance/Submission, Sadism/Masochism (LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM) communities and for people of sexually or gender dissident communities. The goals of Open House include generating interest in a celebration of queer life from the social to the political to the academic. Open House works to create a Wesleyan community that appreciates the variety and vivacity of gender, sex and sexuality.

(Hat-tip: Ryan Anderson on Twitter.) Thus do we continue the descent down the slippery slope that William F. Buckley Jr. first noted in 1951’s God and Man at Yale. In case anyone has forgotten, Buckley’s main point was that Yale had been founded as an explicitly Christian institution and yet, by the middle of the 20th century, harbored many faculty who expounded explicitly anti-Christian doctrines. This lapse into religious heterodoxy, Buckley noted, was accompanied by a tendency to accept or promote philosophical collectivism and hostility toward capitalism. Here we are now, six decades later and Wesleyan University (deriving its name from a famous Christian evangelist) is promoting the very utmost in sexual perversity in all its “variety and vivacity.”

Annual tuition at Wesleyan is $47,972, which is certainly more than the rent of a cheap apartment in San Francisco’s Castro district, where a similar education in LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM might be gained.

    They didn’t. The ‘Q’ for questioning is right up that alley. I would dare say that most teenagers questions their sexuality at some point. Recruit…recruit…recruit…

    I am a Wesleyan alum. The PC was already getting going back then, and I’m talking circa 1980. 35 years later they are way around the bend. The metastasizing acronym parallels what’s going on 54 miles north up I-91 at Mt. Holyoke with the pandering to the chicks with d–ks.

    Am I feel bad for you sarge then I remember I am only thirty and I have to live with this generation. My mom had ten kids and we are all conservative even the school teaching sister but when talking to my peers I realize we are screwed, my friends know who led the Cowboys in rushing from 5 years ago but don’t know who their senator is. The worst they don’t know why they should be against more govt power in the form of free com college and no due process for rape accusations and obamacare, I hold my siblings close and fear that at some point in the future I WILL have to fight to the death to secure their future knowing their lives won’t be as satisfactory as ours were. Thank God I served in the Army two bros served in the Marines and my bro in law is a doc in the army. My only positive outlook for the future meaning 20 years from now is that the schools and colleges have created such incompetant whiny losers that we few we very few warriors will roll them over quick with few losses. would love game planning from older and more EXPERIENCED patriots, by the way mr McCain I have gotten my whole family to follow you, at least as lurkers for now, know that you are proving isn’t for women and that’s straight from my five sisters keep up the great work.

    BTW sorry for commenting so late but I worked twenty hours in the oil field and this is the first I got to look at the Internet, and for some reason I decided that enough was enough I am done being silent. If any of you know some conservative causes that are worth following I would greatly appreciate it the, story from John Hawkins of townhall has me really depressed because it tells me no one is serious in Washington about balancing the budget and at least not borrow money I don’t have to pay for boondockles that we can’t afford. This I tell you will be the start of the civil war when my gen learns they are paying more for debt interest than roads and schools we spoiled many we very special snowflakes will revolt if for no other reason then that’s all we’ve been taught, that’s when people like me and mine will hopefully shine, and can stave off the collapse into dictatorship that all republics have descended into. That is my idea of American exceptionalism for my generation is to cling to individual liberty while knowing that the collectivist’s will blame all their mistakes of govt on me and mine not going full Stalin with their collectivist eutopia.

    My hope is we have been so exceptional as a nation that American conservatives have made enough of a dent in the statist propaganda, that when the inevitable collapse happens (and we all know thats happening when your 18 trillion in debt and a quarter or your gdp is govt spending we all know a collapse is immenant) me and mine will have prepared enough that America unlike ALL others in history will rise to the occasion and demand our rights endowed by our creators and make a better Union. The alternative is really unthinkable to me and I will use my considerable experience (thanks to the same govt that seems incapable of letting a generation not learn from war experience) to throw off the yoke(REO) and make sure that this amazing Union doesn’t end or I WILL die first.

    If they have to work at it, that means that they actually aren’t appreciative.

    Maybe it is? If I wanted to create a community that was accepting of whatever (and then some), getting them all high on MDMA (Ecstasy/Molly) would be on my shortlist.

    MDMA has become a popular drug, in part because of the positive effects that a person may experience within an hour or so after taking a single dose. Those effects include feelings of mental stimulation, emotional warmth, empathy toward others, a general sense of well being, and
    decreased anxiety. In addition, users report enhanced sensory perception as a hallmark of the MDMA experience.

    I’ve wonder how gays — who insist their sexual preference is innate — like being compared to BDSM enthusiasts.

    Years ago, I heard a Presbyterian minister explain that the crisis that led to the Civil War began circa 1800 when Unitarianism became the prevailing dogma at Harvard University. I never researched this history, but I remember once reading an antebellum Southerner’s denunciation of abolitionists as “anarchistic Quakers.” Just another plan to emanetize the eschaton, really.

    As a BDSM enthusiast, I am deeply offended to be lumped in with the gays. Now that I’m a member of the protected class, who all can I sue for this grievous offense?

    That depends on your particulars. If B&D, then they would probably like it if you marched on over there to show them your displeasure in person. If D/s, then just sue the house. If S&M, then sue everyone.

    ETA: I’m totally serious. I use WordWeb all the time if I’m not sure about a spelling. Then I click on the suggestion, ctrl-c and ctrl-v, and fixed. It’s one of the first things that I install on a new computer. I feel handicapped without it.
