Gay College Classes Can’t Replace Shakespeare

NASHUA, N.H. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – College students are taking classes on how to be gay instead of reading Shakespeare.

John Zmirak – editor-in-chief of a guide called Choosing the Right College (Intercollegiate Studies Institute) – says students wasting up to $5,800 of their parents money on classes like, “How to Be Gay: Male Homosexuality and Initiation” is like “only eating McDonald’s all your life.”

According to Zmirak, some of the nation’s most prestigious universities, like Harvard and Wesleyan, are offering pop culture classes as a replacement for more traditional literature and arts courses.

He says, “It’s scandalous that these classes are not electives. They’re replacing high culture and catering to students laziness.”

Among the courses Zmirak questions are “Gay and Lesbian Perspectives in Pop Music” at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Harvard University’s “Hip Hop America: Power, Politics, and the Word.”

Says Zmirak: “Do parents really want to spend their hard- earned money teaching kids to explore sexual experimentation and listen to pop music? Criminologists should be studying hip hop, not kids.”
