‘Safe Space Committee’ works to challenge ‘heterosexism’

From: campusreform.org,  by Nikita Vladimirov,  on Jun 12, 2017

Old Dominion University’s Safe Space Committee provides a number of initiatives for students and faculty, such as LGBT groups, activist events, and networks.

Old Dominion University’s “Safe Space Committee” is seeking to cultivate a climate of diversity by reducing “homophobia, transphobia and heterosexism” on campus.

According to the committee’s website, the organization is dedicated “to a vision of a community that is open, safe, and accepting to all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning people and allies.”

Heterosexism, a term that commonly appears in the gender studies literature, relates to the alleged prejudice against homosexuals based on the idea that heterosexuality is the more desirable form of sexual orientation.

To curb heterosexism and other forms of alleged discrimination, the Committee provides training courses and educational programs for the university’s students and faculty.

The training initiatives include programs such as the Safe Space Ally Certification, Student Ally Certification, and LGBTQ 101.

The programs are mainly designed to “educate the community on issues/trends/concerns with LGBTQ students, faculty and staff” and “provide an overview of what it means to be an ‘ally’ for any ODU faculty, staff or student.”

The Safe Space Committee’s website provides a detailed list of various initiatives for students and faculty, including other LGBT groups, activist events, and networks.

The website also touts the “Spectrum Living-Learning Community,” that is said to be “ideal for students wanting to embrace diversity in a safe and affirming environment” for LGBTQ+ students.

The campus housing community further encourages residents “to freely explore issues of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and the intersection of those while advocating for awareness and social justice.”

All university students “who wish to live in and advocate for a safe environment for gender identity and expression” are eligible for the housing program. The initiative also contains a “course requirement” section that allows participating students to “choose from various experiences to fulfill requirements of living in the community.”

Oh, my God, I’ve heard it all now. The “brain surgeons” on this “safe space” committee are trying to minimize, by re-education, “the ridiculous and obsolete notion” [sarcasm]  that heterosexism is preferable to homosexualism. Here are clips from their quoted statements: “based on the idea that heterosexuality is the more desirable form of sexual orientation,” and “To curb heterosexism and other forms of alleged discrimination, the Committee provides training courses and educational programs for the university’s students and faculty.”

The “safe space” committee is supposedly dedicated “to a vision of a community that is open, safe, and accepting to all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning people and allies.” That about covers everybody except heterosexual (NORMAL) people. I guess what they’re doing is providing a club room so all of the loonies can get together and bitch and moan about the inequality of it all.

All of these Save the Unicorns snowflakes will be in for a rude awakening when they enter the outside world – at least the ones who escape academia and try the business world. They’ll soon find that all of their Female Studies, Gender Studies, Black Studies, and other nonsensical degrees will be worth less than a fish fart. Good damn luck with that, snowflakes, you’ve got it coming.

  1. Brainwashing young adults to reject what’s normal and embrace what’s unnatural. What could possibly go wrong?

  2. Like you, Garnet, just when you think you’ve heard it all, these Einsteins come up with something even stupider than their last stunt.

    I can just see their resumes now – certified in LBGXYZ 101 – yeah, that’s in demand a lot. These guys are learning absolutely nothing useful in life and won’t even be able to bag groceries at the Piggly Wiggly. I don’t even feel sorry for their parents’ wasted money because they allowed them to attend these crackpot colleges.

    • It appears that most of our snowflakes apparently really believe that having a major in Female Studies, or Black Studies, or Gender Studies is a ticket to success. All those programs are simply designed to help less-than-qualified students graduate in SOMETHING. Graduating in Bagology or Burger Flipology will be more helpful in the job market.
