When progressives do this, they’re embracing segregation, and they don’t seem to care.

USF Holds Separate Graduation for LGBTQ Students
The University of South Florida is hosting a “Lavender Ceremony” on Wednesday to celebrate self-identifying LGBTQ+ students who are graduating.
The annual celebration is referred to as the ‘Lavender Ceremony’ and provides 50 graduating LGBTQ+ students with rainbow stoles.
The email sent out to all USF students set to graduate in 2022 stated, “Lavender Graduation is an event where USF students (undergrad, graduate, and professional) who self-identify as LGBTQ+ and have graduated or are planning to graduate in the 2021-2022 academic year have the opportunity to be recognized in an additional special ceremony apart from the main USF Commencement.”
The mass email, which Campus Reform obtained, was sent to all soon-to-be graduates at USF and encouraged only students that self-identify as LGBTQ+ to participate in this ceremony.
The ceremony has been coined the “Lavender Ceremony” because lavender is a combination of the pink triangles that gay men had to wear and the black triangles that lesbian women had to wear in concentration camps in Nazi Germany, according to the Human Rights Campaign.
The first Lavender graduation was held in 1995 and its concept quickly gained popularity. Currently, over 100 universities hold a separate graduation ceremony for their LGBTQ+ students.
The concept of holding separate graduation celebrations has not stopped with the Lavender Ceremonies.

The LGBTQ etc are implying their graduation, their degree, their major, their studies, their hard work don’t matter as much to them as they do for everyone else who’s graduating.
Sometimes the size of graduations can be so big, they may want to graduate with the school of their major (e.g., Health Sciences; Fine Arts, Humanities, etc.) or their major itself. That’s it.
LGBTQ people want to be treated equally, yet they self-segregate, which means they will be with the average population less often.
It’s counterproductive, but they don’t realize it.
It would be much smarter for the LBGT group to celebrate graduation the way many people celebrate Christmas: You have one big celebration and lots of different parties. Have an LGBTQ party — not a separate graduation.
Now they need a separate graduation ceremony for left-handed people.

I thought teh gheys were supposed to be good at colour theory.
I’m color blind.
What color is your fur?
Aw, never mind.
But you also wouldn’t write an obviously BS tearjerker like that one, either… right?
And this from a generation raised with safe spaces equipped with free crayons and coloring books.
For a crowd that keeps screaming “follow the science,” they keep proving they know bupkis about really basic science.
Separate but equal is back in style.
