LGBT Groups at Oregon State Claim Student Veteran Group Jeopardizes Well Being of Others

“called for Veteran Student Association (VSA) members to be barred from moving into an on-campus student lounge”

This is a damn disgrace. These LGBT groups should be ashamed and the school should tell them nothing less.

LGBTQ groups: Student vets ‘jeopardize’ well-being of students

The Pride Center at Oregon State University called for Veteran Student Association (VSA) members to be barred from moving into an on-campus student lounge, stating that it is concerned about the veteran students’ “patriotism” and the “wellbeing” of students.

In a since-deleted open letter to the OSU community posted on Facebook on March 15, the pride center and the LGBTQ+ Multicultural Support Network said that they oppose moving the VSA into the Student Experience Center Involvement Lounge on campus.

The involvement lounge is a space for students to find out how to get involved on campus, according to its webpage.

The Pride Center, which is an entity of the Department of Diversity and Cultural Engagement, stated that their members would be “vulnerable” to the consequences of deciding to let the vet group occupy that space.

“The communities that our organizations serve are vulnerable to the ideological and practical consequences that this decision would bring about,” the Pride Center and LGBTQ group stated.

Specifically, the groups cite President Donald Trump’s ban on transgender individuals from serving in the military as part of their reasoning for this move.

“This push to curb the rights of transgender people to participate as fully as they desire in US society has caused much distress throughout the LGBTQ+ community,” the groups said. “We are disheartened to think that our community, which has historically fought to be recognized fully as human beings, [is] being forced to continue this fight.”

Someone explain to the lbgt (or whatever) that the Vets provide (and have provided) far more value to the nation than they do.

I find it funny how our veterans who are made up of real men and real women who fought for this country would, by their mere existence, scare the daylights out of LGBT members. This fear speaks volumes about the LGBT community and not in a good way.

    I am “g” but am not part of “the community”. In my way of thinking, the “community” requires my having poltical, social, and cultural tastes that fit within narrow parameters. I don’t fit.

    I am a past member of an organization where intelligence above a certain high level is the sole criterion ofr membership. I can’t count how often I was asked “How can a [member of this organization] think [viewpoint they disagreed with]?!?”.

The LGBT community seem to forget that it is the Vets that put their lives on the line to guaranty this freedom then enjoy. Fearing the patriotism of the Vets is an excuse, not a reason.
