The following comes from a July 27 College Fix article by Jacob Kohlhepp:
Questions about gender identity and sexual orientation have been added to admissions applications used by the University of California system, including no less than six choices for students when checking off their “gender identity.”
One new question posed to those seeking admittance to the system – which educates 233,000 students enrolled in 10 campuses statewide – is “How do you describe yourself? (Mark one answer).”
The choices are: “male; female; trans male/trans man; trans female/trans woman; gender queer/gender non-conforming; and different identity.”
The application also asks “what sex were you assigned at birth, such as on an original birth certificate?” and the two choices are: male or female.
The questions are voluntary and responses to the questions will not impact admissions decisions, Shelly Meron, a spokesperson for the UC Office of the President, told The College Fix via email.
The questions were added in response to legislation passed in 2011 that requested the system provide students, faculty and staff an opportunity to report their sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression on forms used to collect demographic data, Meron stated.
Another question added to the application this year asks students’ sexual orientation, and offers “heterosexual or straight,” “gay or lesbian,” or a fill in the blank category.
“Allowing the LGBT community to self-identify also supports the university’s priority of creating an inclusive and welcoming campus environment,” Meron stated in an email to The Fix. “Responses will also provide UC campuses with data that will help us better understand and meet the diverse needs of our students.”
These changes underscore additional modifications made recently to accommodate LGBTQ students and faculty.
“In 2014, UC began adjusting its student record systems to allow students to indicate a preferred name to appear on campus records along with their legal name. And many campuses have already begun converting single-stall restrooms into gender-neutral facilities in existing buildings, where practicable,” according to UCR Today.
“In addition, the university is initiating a two-year project designed to coordinate and promote interdisciplinary study of genders and sexualities across the UC system,” UCR Today added.
“The project will include convening UC stakeholders to identify ways to advance student learning about LGBT issues, and conclude with a systemwide symposium that will showcase research from students and faculty in the field of genders and sexualities.”
The dark relationship between gay ‘marriage’ and surrogacy: even gay activists are worried.
“…Here in the United States, people such as Robert Oscar Lopez, a bisexual man and the son of a lesbian, have decried the practice of surrogacy for both heterosexuals and homosexuals.
According to Lopez, “regardless of whether the mother consents to losing her child, the child cannot consent.”
He has harshly criticized gay men who demean women, using them only for their reproductive capacities.
The University of California is State funded. The teachers should teach, the students learn, and the perverts do what floats their boats in their sacrosant bedrooms. It seems to me that paying fo your children’s college is a waste of money; better to follow the new normal that the youngsters get loaded with loans in their own name. From this they might realize that they should invest their own money in something useful with less emphasis in acquiring STDs. We paid for all of our own progeny’s college costs, they had not a cent of debt.
Universities are now trash! This is a sure sign of these youth are not getting a good solid education but instead their getting an agenda driven brainwashing one instead.
This has got to be insanity !
So why not just add an “animal” identity? dog, cat, pig, etc? We have so much more work to do, Church. We MUST BE that voice to speak out when everyone speaks with the waves that there is NO GOD and NO SIN!!! Pray up, support those who will defend life in government, assist in educating our children in the faith, and remember that JESUS IS LORD! Too many years of complacency and “well that’s their business” has intruded into our religious beliefs. We have become like the Hebrews in Egypt; adopting and accepting the “what’s popular” culture. Ven. Fultuon Sheen projected at best: The Frogs who were placed in tepid water and slowly boiled to death did not “see” the coming death, but just gradually accepted embraced it. Holy Mother…
Don’t take their Biology coursework, it must be Common Core.
‘Be Clear about What You Believe,’ Legal Experts Tell Catholic Colleges, Schools
FRC’s webinar, “ The Court and the Classroom: How the Supreme Court’s Redefinition of Marriage Affects Religious Schools.”
The event was offered in direct response to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which effectively legalized same-sex marriage, and to equip educators with the practical steps needed to defend their religious missions.

In the 1960’s, when kids got into “campus unrest” in American colleges–
I wondered why the colleges (both secular and religious) did not expel juvenile delinquent “hippie” students– and send them all home, with no hope of re-entry! To become a “hippie,” is NOT ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR, for kids! A “hippie” is a JUVENILE DELINQUENT!! When a youngster goes to school, he or she must obey teachers, and have good manners and morals! The best ones will then be ready, at some point, to someday become America’s leaders, in their field of expertise. A school is NOT a place for immature, juvenile delinquents, with criminal behaviors!!
I will add something, to my post, above. If America does not clean up her ridiculous, immature social problems and immorality, in her liberal, leftist “juvenile delinquent” schools– she will someday fall to pieces, and cry and cry– but no one will come to the rescue, at that point! Instead, they all will simply “run wild,” like they do at their disgusting rock “music” gatherings– sickening “wild humans,” like “wild animals,” running around in asphalt jungles! This stupid, ridiculous, “Hippie Welfare State” is terrible– and will eventually collapse, due to the barbaric, juvenile delinquent criminals, who are mis-leading it!
You would think that the faculty of colleges and universities of higher education were highly educated and would have good common sense as it wasn’t exactly easy slugging through all those years as undergrad and graduate students; but unfortunately in most of our nation’s colleges and university’s they’ve proven by their actions in teaching our children awful things, and supporting awful sinful things that they haven’t the intelligence and common sense afterall.
It is ZERO business of any UNIVERSITY – about the sexual orientation of any individual, except in assigning Dorm rooms.
Male or Female, and Homosexual or Heterosexual is all that is needed.
From Family Research Council:
Equality is imperative in a civil society, but Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Representative David Cicilline (D-R.I.) apparently do not understand equality. They recently introduced a bill that is subversively entitled the “Equality Act” (S. 1858 and H.R. 3185).
If allowed to pass, it would act as a supercharged version of the failed — and likewise inaccurately titled — Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
The entire purpose of the “Equality Act” (better titled the “Un-equality Act”) is to provide special privileges to people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered by incorporating sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity into laws regarding employment, like ENDA…

– This “Un-equality Act” would change more than twenty-five provisions of the U.S. Code and would effectively require high schools to allow boys in the girls’ locker rooms, strip elementary schools of the authority to dismiss a kindergarten teacher for transitioning from a male to a female during the course of the school year, and could force religious hospitals to provide sex-change operations and family-owned businesses to affirm such behavior.
Not only that, but this sweeping legislation specifically limits the ability of people who object to its requirements from seeking accommodations based on their religious beliefs in natural marriage.
Thus, in the battle between…
