Northeastern U. School of Law Brags That it’s the ‘Queerest Law School in the Nation’

Northeastern U. School of Law Brags That it’s the ‘Queerest Law School in the Nation’

“Certain programs at Northeastern School of Law, such as career counseling and peer mentoring, are open exclusively to students who self-identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community.”

Is there some sort of award for this? Is that why Northeastern is claiming this distinction?

Campus Reform reports:

This law school boasts it is the ‘queerest’ in the nation

Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts “proudly” proclaims itself to be “the queerest law school in the nation.”

Northeastern was one out of 111 schools that responded to the LGBTQ+ Bar’s Law School Campus Climate Survey. In their reply, the school claims that it intentionally seeks out prospective students who identify as LGBTQ+.

In addition, the school affirms that “assisted reproductive benefits… without the need for extended traditional attempts at pregnancy” are offered in order to be “inclusive of the specific needs of LGBTQ+ employees” and that “care techniques such as mammograms, prostate exams, hysterectomies, etc.” are “available to employees of all genders.”

In the same survey, Northeastern also affirms that it “offer(s) transgender and nonbinary students who have not legally changed their names the ability to have their name-in-use reflected on their admission applications or post enrollment forms.”

“Transition-related health benefits,” including “hormone therapy, gender counseling,” and “gender affirming surgery” are covered not only for transgender-identified employees at Northeastern, but also for transgender-identified students, their spouses, and their dependent children.

Certain programs at Northeastern School of Law, such as career counseling and peer mentoring, are open exclusively to students who self-identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Tops on the list of priorities in picking a school.

“Certain programs at Northeastern School of Law, such as career counseling and peer mentoring, are open exclusively to students who self-identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community.”

“Exclusively.” So they are getting an unequal benefit as compared to non queer students? Is that legal?

“In addition, the school affirms that “assisted reproductive benefits… without the need for extended traditional attempts at pregnancy” are offered in order to be “inclusive of the specific needs of LGBTQ+ employees” and that “care techniques such as mammograms, prostate exams, hysterectomies, etc.” are “available to employees of all genders.”

So they are funding turkey basters so a woman pretending to be a man can give birth? It will be a total waste of University funds to give prostate exams to trans men.

Will the hysterectomies be part of the gender affirmation goals of NU?

Assuming a claim from the left is true that LGBT people face discrimination, would there be a relative disadvantage in recruiting new students or staff or in placement efforts for graduates if a law school was stereotyped as serving the LGBT population? Is this a question of repositioning from having a minority of LGBT students and staff (which is the expected result from a non-discrimination policy) to having a preponderance of LGBT students and staff. (Sort of like Notre Dame attracting catholic students and staff?)

so their graduates are the queerest lawyers in the country?–what a great thing to list on your cv

The only place in the country where men can get hysterectomies and women prostate exams. Sounds like someone crossed the beams once too often.

And as always, it is the “good” kind of discrimination.
