Almost 40 Percent of Liberal Arts College Students Identify as LGBTQ

Almost 40 Percent of Liberal Arts College Students Identify as LGBTQ

“Liberal arts colleges are the least politically diverse. Many have almost no conservatives, and thus very low viewpoint diversity.”

This is meaningless. When there are dozens of other letters after LGBTQ, there’s an identity for everyone.

Liberty Unyielding reports:

40 percent of students identify as LGBTQ at liberal arts colleges

Almost 40 percent of students identify as LGBTQ at liberal arts colleges, according to a study by a center-right think tank that researches partisanship in academic and scientific fields.

“Liberal arts colleges are the least politically diverse. Many have almost no conservatives, and thus very low viewpoint diversity. But they have high sexual diversity, at nearly 40 percent LGBT,” stated the report by the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology, titled “Diverse and Divided: A Political Demography of American Elite Students.”

Overall, 23 percent of American college students identify as LGBTQ. That percentage is close to the results of a Gallup poll, in which 21% of Generation Z identified as LGBT ten months ago.

Far fewer older people identify as LGBT.  The overall percentage of Americans identifying as LGBT was only 7% in the Gallup poll.

The study relies on numbers from the non-partisan Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression. Its nationwide campus expression surveys from last year and 2020.

Professor Eric Kaufmann at CSPI used FIRE’s survey data from 57,000 undergraduates at 159 top American colleges and universities.

“The trend toward LGBT identification among young people, which has seen a threefold expansion since 2008, encompasses both university and non-university young people, white as well as minority,” Kaufmann said. “That said, those who identify as ‘very liberal’ are substantially more likely to say they are LGBT and white left-wing activists are extremely likely to do so, with some 70% of very liberal women who support shouting down offensive speakers identifying as LGBT.”

Clearly, “college” in America today is not what it used to be.

OK, fine. Accept it, like a grown-up, and move on.

If you’re ~18, and you’ve had a fairly normal childhood, and you’re reasonably bright , then you have many, many options.

Here are a couple things you definitely do not have to do:

1. Take on debt.

2. Enroll at so-called institutions of higher learning where silly fools with titles will try to teach you nonsense. And jibberish.

Reminder: Life is not a practice-run. If you choose to spend some of the best years of your life — between 18 and 23 — in some dumbass college in some dumbass college town, run by dumbass administrators , then that is time that you will never get back.

In case it has not been made clear to you, and in case you have not figured it out for yourself : Most skills necessary for success in the coming decades are not taught at “college” today.

40 percent of college students can’t even define themselves as sentient.

And yet I liked my time at Oberlin, back when it was a college and not a camp for social justice wrriors.

Hardly surprising, since the majority of them have no doubt been undergoing indoctrination for the past 10 years at least, and there’s no better way to receive fawning adulation than to “identify” as one of the Alphabet Soup Mafia.

“almost” 40% is really 38% of more than 4000 ! @23 liberal arts institutions.

That’s funny, when I was an English major in school, 40% identified as pro-Shakespeare and/or prospective teachers,

Many, perhaps a majority, of these LGBTQ students are situational gays. Some are socially inept and fearful of rejection by the opposite sex. Others just want to hang out with the cool kids and nowadays LGBTQ is all the rage at many colleges. Being gay is cool and safe. A socially backward guy can hang out with girls without the latter thinking they’re being hit upon by a dweeb or loser.

These institutions are turning out sick puppies. Education was taken over by the socialists, 50 years ago and has, now been weaponized against the citizens of this republic in the socialist takeover attempt, being waged against it. Parents are fools to pay for a public college.

This doesn’t entirely invalidate the article’s observation about liberal/progressive-identified students, but adding in the undefined and undefinable “Q” to LGB has confused data regarding sexual preference. Although it would have been unthinkable to many undergraduates a generation ago, self-identifying as “queer” today often merely means that young adults want to indicate that they believe they would be open to same-sex experiences if the circumstances were right, i.e., that they want to indicate their tolerance to something they may or may not have ever practiced, and which might never become a frequent or even occasional practice in their adult lives. Even the “B” can be misleading; there are people who have had significant relationships with both sexes at various times in their lives, and there are people who think that the time when they once had an emotional or sexual involvement with an inconsistent partner means that they are not entirely straight or entirely gay.

While sexual behavior indeed exists on a continuum, the point of gay and lesbian social activism has been to escape and abolish the stigma attached to these practices and these alone. It is the lesbian and male homosexual manifestations that have normally caused social problems and are thus meaningful to the sociologist. To say on a questionnaire that one is “bi” (or “queer” in many cases today—ignoring the traditional meaning of this adjective with regard to sexual behavior) may never pose any risk to one’s social acceptance at all, even in very traditional social contexts. It is sexual and/or romantic behavior specifically oriented towards one’s own sex that may be socially meaningful, may change some of the social risks that one might encounter in life, and is more likely to have a significant influence on at least some of one’s political attitudes. The rest is discretionary, and may indicate mere virtue-signalling.

There is a prime reason homosexual and other deviant sexual practices, including transsexual diversion, have been universally rejected and abhorred by all societies throughout human history — except by extreme methods & fertilization practices (not including adoption which does not add to reproduction rates), all such unions are childless and barren of the most essential thing societies require to flourish — children. They are inimical to what makes societies work, therefore those practices and those who advocate for them are understandably rejected and shunned by reasonable people. Let me remind that U.S. society is already under necessary reproduction rates of 2.10/female @1.78/female in order to replace population.

If unaware, I invite the reader to research what happened to the once growing group known as “Shakers

I can hardly wait until “identifying” as a red headed hamster from Virginia is the newest thing, and these people can’t understand why they can’t find a job paying well enough to support themselves….LOL
