More yalie frosh identify as LGBTQ than conservative, survey finds

what about the rest of the Lggbdtttiqqaapp community?
In the age of Trump, "conservative" = "the poorly educated". While there are some wrinkles in the Yale admissions process that we might possibly agree do not favor the most qualified candidates, their freshman class is still pretty sharp. So, not actually surprising.

there you go again with the trump-hating

people with advanced degrees went for hillary roughly 60-40 (22% of her voters had advanced degrees versus 14% of President Trump's). Not 100-0.
College grads, hillary had only a very slight edge (32% of her voters versus 30% of the president's). In your world, everyone with a college degree voted for hillary.
High School or less, the president had a small edge(17% of hillary's voters versus 20% of the president's)
Income of $100,000 or more, so you can afford to send your kid to Yale, the President had a slight edge (33% of hillary's voters  versus 35% of the president's)
Income of $50,000 or less, Hillary had a larger lead (39% of hillary's voters  versus 32% of the president's)

Vote Breakdowns Show How Parties Changed With Trump, Clinton at Top of Ticket
Yale Alumni Magazine: Why they call Yale the "Gay Ivy"
Yale has been widely known as the Gay Ivy since at least 1987, when Julie V. Iovine ’77 declared in the Wall Street Journal, "Suddenly Yale is a gay school."
the original wsj article doesn't come up in a google search, but I remember Pat Robertson talking about it on The 700 Club. It said that a quarter of yalies were gay, and Pat Robertson stressed that he only went to the law school

So, on this day of contemplating civil rights, who should be discriminated against more heavily, non-white people or non-binary white people? You obviously hate the existence of both in your world, but I'm wondering if they are equally offensive to you?

You may want to revisit your previous post. The degree to which you are offensive knows no bounds.

I revisited my previous post, and my conclusion remains unchanged: why would you post such vile filth on the day we celebrate the life of mlk

So something caught your eye on one of your far right cesspool web sites, and you decided to repeat it here, regardless of truth content. The author of the blog is a columnist, but you may or may not know the difference beteeen that and an editor. It also does not urge students to spy on white male classmates. It does urge students to call them out on unacceptable behavior and, in a final throw away remark, she promises to keep an eye on them and, if presented with an offensive text, to take a screenshot. All the while acknowledging that this will probably still not be enough to stop the next Kavanaugh from being confirmed.

These cases are pretty egregious. Far too little has been said about the students themselves yet. It is totally unrealistic to imagine that they were not fully complicit co-conspirators in each case. For those with resources and ambitions to study at this level in the US, college applications and all the assorted activities (essay writing, test prepping and taking, college visits, assembly of a portfolio and/or an athletic profile,...) dominate the life of a typical high school student from the middle of junior year through much of their senior year. Not to mention that of their class mates.
