Admin slams 'homonormative whiteness' of LGBTQ Centers

  • Despite being designed as “inclusive” spaces, one university administrator claims that many campus LGBTQ Centers are bastions of “homonormative whiteness.”
  • Jonathan Pryor interviewed 8 LGBTQ students, some of whom even found things like the pride flag problematic, because it represents "a specific White gay ideal, one not representing trans, non-binary people, and people of color.”
  • Despite being designed as “inclusive” spaces, one university administrator claims that many campus LGBTQ Centers are bastions of “homonormative whiteness.”

    In an academic journal article published Monday, Assistant Director of LGBTQIA Programs & Services at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Jonathan T. Pryor argues that LGBTQ students feel marginalized on his campus, even in spaces designed to support them, such as Greek Life and the school’s LGBTQ Center.
  • Such students feel marginalized, Pryor says, because those institutions intrinsically perpetuate “homonormative whiteness” by “upholding power for White, Christian, able-bodied, and middle-class people.”

    After interviewing eight LGBTQ students, Pryor learned that Greek Life was a source of particular consternation, noting that the presence of Greek Life flags in the student center and the proximity of Greek houses to campus made some students especially uncomfortable.

    One student, Jackson—identified as a queer, black, trans man—pointed out to Pryor the strong presence of Greek Life flags hung in the school’s student center.

    “By featuring these organizations in such a visible way, the campus is communicating the importance of fraternity and sorority membership,” Pryor lamented. “What would it mean for the campus to hang all the LGBTQ pride flags in that space? Questions likely not considered in such a heterogendered environment.”

    The school gym can also marginalize LGBTQ students, Pryor discovered, saying that although the school gym is open to all students, it is not “not particularly accessible” for gay students because of the “pressure to be fit” and the “expectations of manliness.”

    Jeremy, a gay white cisgender male student, mentioned that locker rooms are similarly problematic, telling Pryor that they “represent a space dominated by straight cisgender men, where masculinity is rewarded, heterosexuality is supported by sexist and homophobic comments, and athleticism is attributed to a specific body and masculinist nature.”

    To fight this, Pryor calls for colleges to “escape these exclusionary practices” and “begin moving toward practices that center LGBTQ lives in all areas of campus,” asserting that “Institutions can begin to dismantle these traditions through intentional and disruptive efforts to truly center the experiences of LGBTQ communities.”

    Even something as well-intended as a rainbow flag can be problematic, he notes, pointing out that one student he interviewed “felt that the focus on rainbow flags represented a specific White gay ideal, one not representing trans, non-binary people, and people of color.”

    His article was published in the latest issue of the Journal of LGBT Youth alongside articles about alleged “Gender Panics about Transgender Children” and another article about “Gender Non-Conforming Microaggressions.”

    Campus Reform reached out to Pryor for comment, but he declined.

Wonder if it ever occurs to these agenda peddlers that they may reach a point where people just get sick of their incessant social engineering bs and take some hostile actions. Americans in general are incredibly tolerant people, but these fools just push and push.

Seems an awful lot of students have too much time on their hands.
The result of grants and loans vs. working your way through college?

These people of color are quite free to go back to where they came from where they will be in the majority not the minority

"Homo-normative whiteness" LOL... the term implies that there must also be 'homo-abnormative blackness' as well.
Or maybe it should just be homo-abnormality so as not to be all racist about it.

Satan's house is increasingly divided, and we are witnesses to the meltdown.

I know how the story ends, and the Queers do not win.



Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Revelation 22:14-15

Some days it just pays to read the news.
http://canoe.com/news/national/fede...er-president-gabrielle-bouchard-debate-ensues
MONTREAL — Gabrielle Bouchard is brushing aside criticism she is unfit to lead Quebec’s main women’s federation as its first trans president.

The women’s rights activist tells The Canadian Press her vision as president is to fight for equality for all women and among all women.

Since her recent election Bouchard has faced harsh criticism in Quebec newspapers and online from people who say she is incapable of truly understanding the female experience because she was born male.

Bouchard says her detractors assume all women live the same experiences and notes it’s impossible for any president to understand the struggles of all females, regardless of the gender they were assigned at birth.

She says her definition of feminism is about not leaving anyone behind.

The federation of Quebec women represents roughly 300 feminist organizations across the province as well as about 700 individual members.
