Recently, I started recommending my old alma mater to readers asking me where they could get a good education without constant exposure to political indoctrination. I recommended Mississippi State University (MSU), not because it was free from political correctness, but because it was a relatively small problem at the university.
Now, it appears that I might have been wrong about my old alma mater. (Yes, you heard me correctly. I said I might have been wrong about something). My awareness of this possible folly came when one of my readers emailed the following excerpt from the MSU website:
Dispelling Myths: National Gay and Lesbian Pride Month Display at the (Mitchell Memorial) Library. This educational display takes a look at the myths surrounding homosexuality and gay life and dispels them with plain facts.
Apparently, the people running the Holmes Cultural Diversity Center at MSU have decided to align themselves with the gay rights agenda by sponsoring this new library exhibit. And, despite a serious state budget crisis, they have decided to use Mississippi taxpayer dollars to teach people that their objections to homosexuality are unfounded. And who better to expose various “untruths” than the multiculturalists who say that “truth” is an antiquated concept?
I have been a big critic of the multicultural “war against generalizations” for quite some time. But, now, I’ve given up. In fact, I’ve decided to take an “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” approach to the problem. So, rather than challenge their right to put a display in Mitchell Memorial Library, I have decided to ask the Holmes Center to let me put up a display of my own.
My display will be entirely in black-and-white, devoid of any use of rainbow imagery or subtle variations of pink. It will give detailed explanations of the invalidity of the following myths:
Myth #1. Campus gay rights activism is motivated by a desire to protect students from imminent harm. It is not an effort to indoctrinate students. Nor is it in an effort to use tax dollars to win votes for candidates supporting the gay agenda.
Myth #2. Campus gay activists actually respect the views of people who have religious objections to homosexuality. In fact, some of them think that such people have a right to voice their objections to homosexuality at a public university.
Myth #3. Some diversity centers hold real debates exposing students to different opinions on the issue of gay marriage, rather than inviting multiple speakers who share exactly the same opinion.
Myth #4. College administrators believe that it is easier to advance the gay agenda by violating the United States Constitution. But, despite this, they respect the constitution at all times.
Myth #5. The people running campus diversity centers understand that political activism is supposed to be directed at governments by the people, not by governments at the people.
Myth #6. College administrators understand that constitutional rights belong to individuals. They also understand that “centers” run by the government do not have constitutional standing.
Myth # 7. Campus gay activists always tell the truth about the percentage of the population that is actually gay.
Myth #8. Because they are all very rational intellectuals, campus gay activists fully understand the problems associated with espousing a belief in a) the “gay” gene, b) a growing gay population, and c) the Darwinian notion of “survival of the fittest.”
Myth # 9. Gay activists always tell the truth about the relationship between homosexual sodomy and AIDS. That is because they care more about the public health than the blind pursuit of sexual gratification.
Myth # 10. The decision to join the gay rights movement will secure enough donations from gay activists to offset the ensuing donor boycott from the once proud alums of Mississippi State University.
When I establish this display at my old alma mater, I will be able to proudly boast that I have become a part of the multicultural war on generalizations. The university can then turn its attention to combating generalizations against all kinds of groups. Perhaps they can sponsor a panel discussion called “Driving excellence among Chinese immigrants” or “Genetic diversity in the Mississippi Delta.” Maybe they’ll even have time for one called “The fear of profanity among Italian Americans.”
I think it’s always good to keep a sense of humor when tackling issues of diversity. But the multiculturalists think that generalizations are always a bad idea.
