Cal State Fullerton Gets a Queer Studies Minor--And Its First Haters
Cal State Fullerton recently approved a queer studies minor, and starting this fall, students will examine the culture of gender and sexuality in courses such as Queer Theory, Sexual Orientations and American Culture and The Psychological Study of LGB Experiences. The program was pushed for after a string of highly publicized suicides by young gay men, according to the Orange County Register. Administrators say they want members of the LGBT community on campus to see themselves reflected in the university's curriculum.
OneNewsNow.com, the "news" site of the Christian conservative American Family Association, opens an article like this:
"California State University-Fullerton has initiated a progam [sic] for Queer Studies in what may be the start of a full-force takeover by homosexual activists in the public school system."
