There are so many things I'm holding my tongue from saying. Here is the gist of it. Apparently a university started by Baptists in New England has now decided to throw out all their original values. To not expel someone who has had such an operation is part of religious tolerance. To pay for such an operation in a still young person is a form of strident, extreme advocacy. We are watching a culture trying its best to commit suicide.
Some readers may recall my remarks about the national Girl Scouts wanting to allow a gender confused genetic boy into a troop of girls - with overnight camping included - and the local women leaders, religious women, who disbanded the troop immediately before any actual problems arose. Actually one can be an atheist local Girl Scout leader and understand that you are legally required to protect the safety of the girls given to your charge, you are risking lawsuits if not possible jail time if any of the Girl Scouts under your supervision gets either physically or emotionally harmed by the presence of a biological boy among them, whatever he may think he is.
If Brown University believes their school now is a social laboratory that can accommodate - let us say two transexuals a year - then they may well believe that they can impose these people as roommates on any other non-surgically altered student. An attempt to refuse such a roommate might bring charges of anti-lesbian, gay and transgendered discrimination which the complaining student - and their parents - may have to fight in a student court, if not a state court. Students who claim to be liberals will have the limits of their liberalness tested by such living situations.
From the Daily Caller:
Students at Brown University who decide they want to change genders will now be covered under the school’s generous student health insurance plan.
Beginning in August, Brown’s student health insurance plan will pay for more than a dozen different sexual reassignment surgery procedures, including scrotoplasty, labiaplasty, clitoroplasty and placement of testicular prostheses, reports The Brown Daily Herald. The plan as currently configured will cover only students, not staff.
My associate Tim Birdnow adds some words, discussing his brother Professor Brian Birdnow, Townhall contributor, and the condition of university life today:
Universities are the cornerstone of liberal madness, and even those that were dedicated to Christian principles are avid promoters of the modern religion of Man these days. Disgusting.
A few years ago there was an effort by traditional Catholics to create an alternative. Ave Maria University was intended to be a traditional, old-style Catholic university, promoting Catholic values. A series of lawsuits and the need to fill the staff with "qualifired" people (meaning people with experience, and all you will find in academia in that regard are liberals) has turned Ave Maria into just another liberal factory. My brother tried (and failed) to get on with them. He told me that the Dean was talking about being "more open to the modern world".
How long before Ave Maria starts promoting sex changes?
