This is plain stupid. Shouldn't the university be teaching kids so they can earn a living rather then holding these silly, feel good liberal events?

Lets see. How do you promote sexual orientation or gender? If your child is confused or unsure of him/her self take our class in "Blurring the Lines: Transgender Power!"

Or if your child is disabled and cannot be in the Army we will fight to keep ROTC off campus because they have arbitrary standards of fitness.

Inclusiveness should be genuine, not forced upon people by an overbearing government. This kind of event is a joke.

Ahhh yes, the rank racism of the Vindy comment boards. Yes, inclusiveness should be genuine, but it rarely is in America or the Mahoning Valley.

It is easy to throw out the word racism when you disagree with someone. My comments have nothing to do with race. Only the idiotic way universities capitulate to every group that has a grievance or feels wronged and outside the mainstream.

"It is easy to throw out the word racism when you disagree with someone."

So true.

Youngstown is a majority-minority city. You don't think we need attention to diversity here?

The majority of children under 18 in America are now non-white. We have more and more young kids who are coming out to proclaim their homosexuality. America is more diverse than its ever been; yet, you want to shut down any real conversation about it.
