UC’s New Multiple-Choice Question

The University of California is giving a new multiple-choice question to incoming students, and it is not on any of their exams. Admission forms for students will now offer six different options for their gender. Options include the traditional male and female, as well as “trans male”, “trans female”, “gender non-conforming,” and “different identity.” This change comes as a result of a LGBT council that was formed by University of California President Janet Napolitano. Napolitano, who previously served as President Obama’s Homeland Security advisor, said that the change was made in an effort to “model inclusiveness and understanding.”

This change comes as no surprise from the liberal University of California, but a trend of similar shifts in policy can be seen at colleges all over the country. This false dialogue of “inclusiveness” actually just means special treatment for people who are confused about their gender. Johan Mosquera, a staff member at University of California’s LGBT Resource Center, claimed that putting more gender choices on admission forms would help the school to stop supposed harassment and hate crimes. Of course, this really means shutting down any free speech made in opposition to the LGBT agenda. Their “inclusiveness” is actual exclusive against anyone who does not agree with them.

Changing the number of gender options on admissions forms is only one of many steps that the University of California is taking to promote gender-confused students. President Napolitano made the chilling statement that “I’m proud of the work we’ve done so far, but it doesn’t stop there.” Conservatives need to be aware of these new changes and should not be silenced with loaded terms like “hate speech” and “discrimination.” Universities should be a place where ideas can be exchanged freely for all viewpoints, not only terms that are politically correct.
