Parents typically work especially hard to ensure their children have the opportunity to attend college and receive the education and skill-sets needed to make it in the world. Apparently, a requisite life-skill is to learn how to make an electronic light signs with a gay, lesibian, bisexual, transgender, queer and asexual theme.
In other words, "Queer Lights" is a for-credit course. No. We are not making this up.
The CollegeFix is back exposing the latest insanity to hit a so-called respectable university campus:
No, seriously. It’s the newest class at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Students can earn academic credit for literally “building LGBTQA-themed electronic light displays.”
The 1-credit course, first reported on by The Liberty Standard, was announced Jan. 27 via the “Engineering E-News Letter.”
“‘Queer Lights’ will cast light on lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and asexual (LGBTQA) topics while the students in the class literally cast light–building LGBTQA-themed electronic light displays,” an online description of the course states. “An engineering professor will teach the students how to create and program the displays, and the director of the Stonewall Center will lead the students in discussions about LGBTQA issues in the news and in their own lives.”
“Some of the topics to be covered include the intersections of racial and LGBTQA identities, the campus climate for LGBTQA students, and the legal and political rights of LGBTQA people today.”
On Thursday TruthRevolt reported on the racially-charged academic coursework being given to nursing students at Ohio State to show how even degree-schemes that should be relatively immune to left-wing hijacking are anything but. Now, engineering professors are teaching about LGBTQA light-shows?
Unless they too are the types of progressives bent on brainwashing youth with progressive ideology, parents ought to take a cold, hard look at the type of education their children are receiving at so-called institutions of higher learning and do something about it, fast.
