Gay Preferences?

Two trains carrying loads of conflicting values, requirements, and prohibitions affecting college admissions and hiring are hurtling rapidly toward each other, but no one seems aware of the impending collision.

On one track,  the Supreme Court is probably poised to impose new restrictions on race- and ethnicity-conscious policies in Fisher v. University of Texas and to allow states to eliminate such policies altogether in Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action. On the other track the movement to implement policies and programs specifically targeted to students based on their sexual orientation is rapidly gathering steam.

So begins a new “Short Take” of mine today on Minding The Campus, “Preference For Gays (And Gay Pretenders)?

DISCRIMINATIONS veterans will (or may) recall that I’ve written quite a bit on gay preferences over the years. Among those items:

Gay Pride And Civil Rights

The Gay Bishop, God’s Work, And Civil Rights
Who Says Blindness Is Bad?
No Need for Congress to Act–I’m President, So I’ll Do It Myself
