Earlier this week, an SGA senator at Arkansas State University attacked his school’s support of LGBT History Month programming with a lengthy Facebook post and followup Tweets.
Junior Josh Waters, an economics major and a senator in ASU’s student government wrote on his Wall:
“How in the world can there be a month honoring a tiny amount of the population who make a choice to be something. Being Gay isn’t a race. I don’t support LGBT month at all and think there is no merit to it. I support diversity so we can learn from others, not promoting something that is explicitly a choice. I think it is wrong MY MONEY from paying student fees here at ASU is going to promote this cause.”
Setting aside whether sexuality is a choice, its ironic Waters says he’s in favor of diversity so long as its something immutable. Different religions, political beliefs, musical tastes? No thank you!
We suppose we should be thankful his post only got 31 “Likes.”
