    Elmhurst College put a question on its admissions application that won’t appear on any other school's application.

    "Would you consider yourself to be a member of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered) community?”

    That optional question makes Elmhurst the first school in the country to ask applicants about their sexual orientation or gender identity, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Gary Rold, the dean of students at Elmhurst, stressed the question falls in line with the campus’ mission statement to increase diversity.

    I respect gays and wish them the best, but this is definitely crossing the line

    Let's see; {Elmhurst is a private four-year liberal arts college.}

    Elmhurst College: Elmhurst, Illinois

    In that case, they can do whatever the hell they want!

    Not true. I've always competed quite favorably against my fellow straight white male brethren. Philosophically I disagree with affirmative action, but in reality those displaced by it scrape the bottom of our demographic barrel so I'm not exactly losing any sleep over it.

    Elmhurst College is a private college. They can choose to give out scholarships to whoever the fuck they want too.

    Welcome to America.

    Next!

    One of the greatest architects of the last century, Phillip Johnson. The incredible Crystal Cathedral, designed for evangelicals by Phillip Johnson.

    Alen Turing, WWII Hero and the father of modern computer language.

    Then there are all those famous writers: like Walt Whitman, Henry James, Henry David Thoreau, H.D., Herman Melville, Elizabeth Bishop, James Baldwin, Countee Cullen, Langston Hughes, Tennessee Williams, Edward Albee, Hart Crane, Allen Ginsberg, Gertrude Stein, Audre Lorde, and Adrienne Rich.

    You can find an equally steller field in film, music, dance, theater.

    Yes, as Alen Turing proved, even science.

    All those gays from a tiny sliver of the population.

    The majority of Republicans hate the gays. Envy? After all, if they had a talent like Phillip Johnson, they would have built their own cathedral.
