If you are an English literature major, you get exposed to everything. Queer, black, African black, Japanese, Russian, women, etc., and white old
dudes. They are bundled together in "literature studies" so you have to take "Shakespeare" (there is no getting around that one because it is too
important) and you can opt for "women's studies", or "colonial studies" (i.e., anything not American where they established a colony from some other
country), "homosexual lit", "black lit", "modern lit", "post modern", etc. You cannot not take some study and graduate on time.
In my case, in order to graduate on time, I walked into class full of chicks and one gay dude and studied the topic of homosexual literature for a
semester. There were a few surprises and some really good writing. The autobiographical tale of a man watching his mate die of AIDS when everybody was
afraid to shake hands with the infected is heart wrenching to say the least and will always stay with me. As a non-homosexual or bi-sexual (or pan
sexual, or whatever the new PC flavor of the day is), I found my horizons expanded a bit (as Northrop Frye would say) and glad that I had to actually
take the course. Diversity is not scary.
It is a private school. They can do what ever they want to their curriculum. I'm surprised that an anonymous google petition would affect them.
And didn't the Simpsons already cover this topic when Mr. Burns went back and found Yale of old drastically changed? I think robots were involved too.
