Portland State University Now Offering ‘Queer Ecologies’ Class

“We explore how gender, sexuality, and queer experience and identity intersect with race, class, disability, and settler colonialism”

How is the study of science improved through the addition of identity politics?

The College Fix reports:

Portland State University offers ‘queer ecologies’ class

A class at Portland State University allows students to study “queer ecologies,” with numerous queer-centric topics discussed through a “queer lens” in order to understand “queer identity and experience.”

A flier of the course, offered through the school’s Women’s Studies department, was posted to Twitter on Tuesday by Peter Boghossian, a philosophy professor at the university. The course will be offered over the Winter 2020 quarter at the school.

“We explore how gender, sexuality, and queer experience and identity intersect with race, class, disability, and settler colonialism to construct bodies and places as ‘natural’ and the role that science plays in defining ‘nature’,” the description on the flier reads.

Topics covered in the class, according to the flier, include “queer bodies,” “queering settler colonialism,” “queer environmental politics,” “disability and queer environments,” “queering science,” “queer animals” and “queer environmental futurity.”

Comments

This is one more way that a student can achieve a college degree while learning absolutely nothing of value. When students voluntarily waste their time and tuition on this kind of crap, I have little sympathy for those who graduate deep in debt and unable to find a job.

I was going to comment that “you can’t make this stuff up” but clearly they do, all the time. So, should I enjoy my second cup of coffee at the mochahut or take the #14 across the river to deface this flyer with scathing commentary. And they wonder why those of us who worked on the hill frequently laughed at them

“Odd, different, strange, peculiar”- so yes, this course certainly qualifies using the original definition of “queer”.
And this course is useful to “ecology”, humanity how? It’s another “victimology” class.
Pitiful.

This is not a Boghossian Pluckrose, etc. hoax?
(well, its Portland).
Well, the left can be described as an eco-chamber.

Perhaps with a little research, a trans-lobotomy might fix things.

And here we thought it was all about gay penguins, maybe even frogs.

God made man & woman. The Dimms & perverts invented the test
