It’s no secret that colleges and universities in America lean decidedly to the left politically, but a new report from Young America’s Foundation provides detailed evidence that would invoke laughter if the consequences weren’t so serious.
The report, “Comedy & Tragedy: College Course Descriptions and What They Tell Us About Higher Education Today,” shows American universities have become thinly veiled vehicles for organizing left-wing students, using the concept of “intersectionality” to push a far-left political agenda and resentment of whites, Christians and heterosexuals a weapon.
YAF explains intersectionality is “a new wave of identity politics infecting higher education, playing directly into the hands of leftist administrators, professors, and students seeking to reach a new low in their victim olympics.”
“The result is a disregard for personal responsibility or individual freedom. Instead, students are coddled and treated as a victim in need of special accommodation in order to cope with a world fraught with concocted dangers including microaggressions and cultural appropriation,” the report says.
Homosexuality is a special focus of universities, particularly in “gender studies” courses. Northwestern University seeks to explore homosexuality in medieval Europe with its “Medieval Sexuality” class, promising to teach the “fluidity of sex and gender roles in an age before ‘sexual orientation’; impact of and resistance to Christian theology’s negative assessment of sexuality; the cult of chastity.”
A gender studies course at the University of Indiana “explores how womanhood is produced, perceived, and performed in modern American culture,” “from accusations of ‘Resting B—- Face’ to hails of ‘Yaaas, Queen!’”

The God of the Bible and later Jewish and Christian literature is distinctively masculine, definitely male. Or is He? If Click to see the original article
