Clemson LGBTQ Students Demand Special Campus Safe Space

Clemson LGBTQ Students Demand Special Campus Safe Space

“fundamental disconnect between administrators and LGBTQ+ students.”

Wasn’t not being treated differently than others the whole point of the LGBTQ rights movement?

Campus Reform reports:

LGBTQ+ students demand special treatment from Clemson

Student leaders wrote an open letter demanding that Clemson University create an LGBTQ safe space on campus to rectify the school’s alleged callousness toward such students.

In the letter, which was published in The Tiger, the coalition declares that “a permanent space must be allocated to the LGBTQ+ community” because “incoming LGBTQ+ and other underrepresented students enter campus with the deck stacked against them.”

The letter was co-authored by Jessie Bailey and P.J. Price, presidents of the Clemson University Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA) and Clemson Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) chapters, respectively, who chastise Clemson President Jim Clements for informing them that there are no plans for such a space, alleging that the treatment of the LGBTQ+ community as “simply another ‘student group’” reflects the “fundamental disconnect between administrators and LGBTQ+ students.”

The letter complains that “President Clements responded to student concerns regarding Clemson’s efforts to support the LGBTQ+ community by saying, ‘There’s always going to be an issue that comes out, and another one next week and another one next week.’”

Those particular remarks, however, were made in reference to President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration as part of a brief interview with Greenville Online, not LGBTQ+ initiatives.

The deck is stacked against them primarily because these mixed up alphabet snowflakes arrive prepared to cause maximum disruption to the campus by acting out their faked perversions instead of getting an education. Instead of receiving special treatment for acting out, the perverts should be put to the curb for disrupting the institution, preventing others from getting the education they have paid for.

Not quite sure what these queers intend to do for a job. The jobs for professional queers and perverts are all taken.

So if I am 4’3″, have a mole on my left foot, and speak with a lisp, can I demand a special place for others who are 4’3″, with a mole on their left foot and who speak with a lisp because we all feel persecuted?

I will volunteer to make a sign to hang on a cleaning closet.
